Oops! I’m Biased: Objective Hiring Criteria

Objective Hiring Criteria: How to set, implement, and actually stick to them

Setting objective and unbiased hiring criteria is an overlooked step in unbiased hiring. What’s more, talent acquisition and hiring managers disagreeing on criteria for an open position can cause some tension.

So how can you set objective criteria that your hiring managers and recruiters stick to until a hiring decision is made and beyond?

Charlotte Melkert (CEO at Equalture) talks to Florian Meister (Head of TA at Temedica) about the challenges of setting hiring criteria, the risk of bias creeping in, how to get hiring managers on board, how involved hiring managers should be, and what a successfully implemented process for setting hiring criteria looks like. Plus, why and how to involve the team that has the open position.
