Humans are biased. It’s part of our evolutionary nature. We strive to reduce our biases, but they can still creep into our behaviours, our designs and even the way we hire people.
However, companies that don’t seek to redress the balance don’t just miss out on potential candidates, but could also be losing valuable time in the recruitment process.
MeVitae wants to mitigate the cognitive and algorithmic biases that exist in the hiring process.
“We build technology to debias different steps of the hiring process, from sourcing top diverse talent to blind recruiting, all within a company’s HR function and Application Tracking System. Our work means there has been up to a 30% increase in gender and ethnicity diversity in participating companies. Other benefits have included a doubling of the number of candidates applying for roles and time savings of up to 80%.”
