Recruitment processes can be a flawed means of selecting the best person for the job because our automatic assumptions and stereotypes about people can impact our decision making. We hold implicit associations and beliefs based on life experiences, cultural norms and the environments we live in, and these can influence our decisions without us even being aware of them.

It’s important to understand how cognitive biases and social or demographic biases relating to age, gender, cultural background can affect our judgement and impact the treatment and assessment of candidates.
