Learn how to make fair recruitment decisions
This short video briefing explains why it makes sense to ensure that your recruitment decisions are fair.
Not only does it make commercial sense, recruiting fairly will ensure that recruitment decisions comply with the provisions of the Equality Act.
Fair, unbiased and non-discriminatory recruitment doesn’t just enable organisations to comply with the law. It also ensures that they recruit the best people for the job and reap the benefits of a diverse workforce – and that staff are motivated and productive.
This short briefing looks at how our unconscious bias can affect our decisions, the benefits of fair and unbiased recruitment and the key legal considerations for employers when advertising for and recruiting new staff.
This briefing will give a better understanding of:
- what the Equality Act says about discrimination on the grounds of ‘protected characteristics’ such as age, disability, race and gender
- how unconscious bias can affect our recruiting decisions
- the importance of being aware of the potential for discrimination when drawing up role descriptions and person specifications
- how we can use positive action programmes to address under-representation of certain groups.
