Taking Unconscious Bias Out of Hiring: ADP Search and Visualization Tool Helps Recruiters Focus on the Right Candidate

Taking Unconscious Bias Out of Hiring: ADP Search and Visualization Tool Helps Recruiters Focus on the Right Candidate

Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity & Corporate Social Responsibility Officer

The business case for workplace diversity is clear – we live in a world made up of people with different backgrounds and world views, and the companies that reflect this can best meet the needs of their equally diverse stakeholders. Yet, less than half of organizations today say that their diversity and inclusion initiatives are successful.[i] What’s stopping them? One of the most common challenges is not equipping recruiters, or managers, with the ability to be impartial when making hiring decisions – 20 percent of large enterprises do not have the tools to help ensure fair and unbiased resume reviews.[ii] It’s human nature to make quick judgments about people and situations influenced by our cultural environment, preferences and experiences. This natural human tendency of “unconscious bias” can impact a company’s ability to match the best talent for a given role. At ADP, we’re helping organizations take action through Visual Search, a new search and visualization tool that helps to remove factors like gender, ethnicity and pay from the candidate...

Research-Driven Insights for an Engaged Workforce

Research-Driven Insights for an Engaged Workforce

ADP’s webcast – “Talent Engagement and Retention – There’s Science Behind It!” – was a big hit and now you can listen to the on-demand version. Five important findings and insights, based on research-backed data about the strategic underscoring of the importance of employee engagement in the workplace, emerged from the webcast: 1) Employee engagement is a quantifiable measure of commitment that an individual feels toward an organization. 2) Despite its importance, in many businesses employee engagement is lacking – less than 33% of U.S. employees are engaged, according to a Gallup poll.1 3) Ensuring development opportunities is critical to drive engagement. ADP’s 2016 Employee Engagement Study reveals that more than nine out of 10 engaged employees are likely to stay at their organization if they have different growth opportunities, as compared to only six out of 10 unengaged employees.2 4) Frequent praise and recognition, through formal and informal measures, from managers, peers and colleagues, are critical to drive engagement. ADP® research shows that unengaged employees are 4.5 times...
