Fighting Unconscious Bias In The Workplace

Unconscious biases are stereotypes and prejudices against certain categories of people that subconsciously run counter to an individual’s outward beliefs. Oftentimes, the person in question does not even know they possess such unconscious biases. With respect to the workplace, unconscious biases may result in decreased morale, higher turnover, and increased legal exposure. This course helps uncover the answers to the questions this concept might raise, such as how unconscious biases are formed and how they can be combatted.

Unconscious biases are automatic, unintentional, and created from deeply ingrained stereotypes. They are often shaped by the media and our life experiences. This course covers several kinds of unconscious biases that can impact the workplace specifically, including the Affinity Bias, the Similarity Bias, Confirmation Bias, the Halo Effect, and the Horn Effect. Each type is explained, and examples are provided.

Combating unconscious bias starts with a thorough review of all the employment processes where these biases may be found. These processes include, for example, the screening of resumes, interviewing, onboarding, performance evaluations, promotions, and terminations. Unconscious bias taints these processes, which in turn reduces profitability and sabotages the brand of the company. Utilize the information presented here and learn how to combat unconscious bias in the workplace.
