6 Tips for HR Professionals to Tackle Workplace Biases #infographic

Workplace prejudice is often unintended but still quite real. Promotions are delayed or denied, more lucrative work prospects are offered to fine-looking colleagues, and all the attention is granted to well-dressed team members. Workplace bias can easily happen, so much so that you might not even instantly know it!

From interviews to selection meetings and design approvals to referrals to candidates, there is more than one climate for prejudice to make its appearance. Just 20 percent of workers over the age of 55 have jobs in the U.S., and the number of reports about age discrimination reached 18,000 in 2017 alone.
Bias, according to Cambridge, is defined, because of personal beliefs, as the action of falsely promoting or opposing a particular individual or their decisions, thereby clouding their judgment. Decision-making in the workplace can be a challenge and can be influenced by factors such as age, weight, gender, dress, height or colour. But draw the line for candidates who are hoping to be hired. Even if work stereotypes go unnoticed, this could have a significant impact on the market, diluting the talent pool and growing diversity, inclusiveness, and creativity.
