Unconscious biases are a fact of life.
Everyone harbors them - and takes them into the workplace.
Unconscious biases in the workplace can stymie diversity, recruiting and retention efforts, and unknowingly shape an organization’s culture.
Unconscious bias can skew talent and performance reviews.
It affects who gets hired, promoted, and developed - and this unwittingly undermines an organization’s culture.
HR and talent management professionals must ask the question, “To what extent are our organizational culture and business results being affected by unconscious bias?”
Unconscious bias permeates the workplace at all levels because we all have prejudices - numerous studies since the 1980s confirm that people harbor unconscious bias even when they explicitly believe that prejudice and discrimination are wrong (Henneman, 2014).
