WRITTEN BYJames Price | JPAbusiness

It’s not uncommon for people to present really well in a job interview, be offered the position and then later be found ‘wanting’ when it comes to fulfilling the particular role they’ve been recruited for.

Similarly, there are many people who don't present well in interviews and subsequently miss out on jobs, who actually have a lot of substance in practice and would be valuable team members.

So how do we take the emotion out of the recruitment process and minimise the impact of our own biases and prejudices when dealing with these different personality types? 

In this video I'm sharing 4 tips to help remove that bias from the hiring process.

How does it work?

The more lenses you can look at a new hire through – internal stakeholders, your own intuitions, psychological assessment, the eyes of a trusted external advisor – the better your chances of making an informed and objective decision.

Using the suggestions contained in our video and infographic essentially gives you those additional 'lenses'.
