Seminar Thanks!
We would like to thank all those who attended the Personnel Profiles, Inc. training seminar Add To Your HR Toolbox -- Hot Topics in HR, Hiring & Retaining Great Talent (Remember Our Veterans) & Achiever Assessment Certification Training on September 2, 2020 via Zoom. We especially thank Darlene Mack with HR Partners International, Inc. ( 513-675-8350), and Cody VanBoxel with DAV ( 859-442-2352) for sharing their time and their knowledge.

Removing Bias
We tend to like people that seem similar to us. Hiring managers are equally susceptible to this unconscious bias, which can perpetuate a cycle of hiring people who look, think, and behave similarly to those who are making the decisions. This bias affects not only hiring but also promotion, and employee trajectories.

To remove bias, employers must establish clear benchmarks for open positions and use data-driven assessment tools to select the best candidate based on skill. Using assessment tools makes hiring easier and increases diversity by leveling the playing field for all candidates. These tools should measure a candidate's motivation, competency, and emotional intelligence. As the structure and demands of workplaces change, understanding your employees is more important than ever. CRI assessment tools help eliminate bias throughout employment life cycles. Please contact your local Personnel Profiles, Inc. Representative to learn more about establishing benchmarks to reduce bias.

Warm regards,
Eric Cotter
