Unconscious Bias: The Cost to Your Business
We're all guilty of being biased, probably without even realising it. However, sometimes that bias can have real financial and legal consequences to your business. So, before it limits your business or staff growth, identify the issue and fix it today!
Have you ever?
Given a task to a 'Generation Y-er' because you assumed they'd be more tech-savy than someone older or with children?
Assumed that the doctor you are about to see is male and the nurse is female?
Reviewed a CV with a listed hobby such as ‘horseback riding’ and assumed the candidate would be more qualified than other candidates?
These biases, often influenced by our cultural environment, personal experience and background, can impact decision-making process, judgements and actions, in your business. This practical and educational introductory workshop is packed with advice, examples and practical exercises to help you, and your staff, cost-effectively familiarise and identify instances of Unconscious Bias and provide the tools and solutions you need to avoid it in the future.
