6 Tips for HR Professionals to Tackle Workplace Biases #infographic

Bias in the workplace is sometimes unintentional but very true all the same. Promotions are postponed or refused, more lucrative job opportunities are offered to good-looking colleagues, and well-dressed team members get all the publicity. Workplace prejudice happens easily, so much so you may not even realize it immediately!

There is more than one environment for bias to make its position, from interviews to selection meetings and design approvals to applicant referrals. Just 20 percent of employees over the age of 55 have jobs in the U.S., and only in 2017 the number of complaints about age discrimination reached 18,000.

Bias, according to Cambridge, is characterized as the behavior of unfairly supporting or opposing a particular individual or their decisions, because of personal views, thereby clouding their judgment. In the workplace, decision making may be a challenge and frequently affected by factors such as age, weight, gender, dress, height, or colour. Hence drawing the line for applicants hoping to be recruited. Even, if job prejudices go unnoticed, this may have a huge effect on the company, diluting the pool of talent and reducing diversity, inclusiveness, and innovation.
