Embracing Blind Hiring to Foster Diversity

Unconscious bias in the hiring process impacts which applicants are contacted for interviews. Therefore, applicants whose personal characteristics the hiring team unconsciously prefers tend to receive interviews and job offers. As a result, the workforce typically becomes homogenous. Blind hiring involves removing personal information from job applications. Eliminating clues about an applicant’s name, gender, age, and ethnicity helps reduce unconscious bias in the hiring process. As a result, blind hiring helps evaluate an applicant based on their skills, qualifications, and potential. These factors foster diversity within the company.
