Individual bias is developed based on social environment, culture, upbringing and moral values. At times, we get negative vibes from a person for no justified reason. Unconsciously these feelings impact our judgments. The point is, without even realizing, such feelings result in wrong decisions. The responsibility of taking the right decision changes in professional life, especially when you are a part of the hiring team. Because the consequences of the wrong decision affect the entire organization in terms of money, time and productivity.
The identity discrimination should be removed from all the resumes prior to review by the hiring managers. Talent is beyond gender, location, nationality, age, and religion. The assessment of the resumes is supposed to be regardless of these identity priorities. In order to implement a transparent and fair recruitment system, these biased factors have to be eliminated.
