Event Details

In this talk, Tanya Menon and Joeri Hofmans argue that two key principles constrain the diversity of the hiring:

(1) a too narrow pool, and (2) biased filtering of the pool.

Next, we zoom in on hiring for fit, which is a source of hiring bias when done instinctively. After having explained a number of common misconceptions on hiring for fit, we argue how organizations can reap its benefits by engaging in a structured fit assessment.

We look forward to this webinar - join us!
