Free Webinar: Four ways you are unconsciously holding your employees back

October 14, 2013

October 20th, 1:00 pm EST

The idea behind a traditional annual performance review is valid: to help the organization increase the strength and diversity of its workforce and set it up for success in the new year. However, all too often we sabotage that success by failing to understand how unconscious biases are affecting our work.

Often, these biases hijack our minds—we begin to make decisions and judgments based on our own personal experiences and values, not based on what is best for the employee or the organization at large.

It’s a dangerous practice in business and especially in talent management processes, where it can quickly reduce representational diversity. In this free webinar, we will explore four of the most common biases that occur in the performance review process, and how to mitigate them. By understanding bias and the role it plays in the personalities, power dynamics, and decisions of the daily workplace, we can provide equal opportunity for growth for persons of all groups, and ensure a robust and diversity talent pipeline.

In this webinar, you will:
– Learn the four most commons kinds of bias in talent management today
– Hone the ability to identify bias in performance reviews and in the daily workplace
– Gain strategies to manage these biases and mitigate their consequences
