Build inclusive hiring practices
Creating a diverse and equitable workplace starts with hiring. At Criteria, we’re committed to helping organisations make fair and objective talent decisions by reducing bias and uncovering the potential within each job candidate.
Reduce unconscious bias and build better teams
Studies show that diverse teams are stronger, higher performing, and more innovative. Yet unconscious bias can affect our ability to objectively assess the potential of every candidate. People are naturally biased even when we intend to be completely fair. Unconscious biases are learned stereotypes that are automatic, unintentional, and deeply ingrained. Resumes and unstructured interviews can be notoriously unreliable, and can inject bias and subjectivity into the recruitment process. To minimise that bias, we advocate for a more objective approach.
We’re committed to helping you level the playing field
Our assessments are designed to help you hire diverse, high performing teams. Through a rigorous validation process, our team of organisational psychologists ensures that our assessments are non-discriminatory and that any subgroup differences are minimised, while maintaining the accuracy of the test. We do this by reviewing all test content for cultural sensitivity and for differential item functioning to ensure that each assessment is free of content bias across cultural and gender groups.
See the potential in everyone
Criteria’s assessments collect objective and behavioural data and help organisations make data-driven hiring decisions by highlighting qualities that aren’t apparent from a resume or interview. When administered early in the recruitment process, our assessments surface outstanding candidates who may have been overlooked based on a resume alone. The result? A more diverse talent pool with a rich diversity of backgrounds and perspectives.
Diversity starts with hiring
Now more than ever, organisations are committed to enhancing diversity, equity, and inclusion. At Criteria, we’re committed to working with our clients to help them build a fair and equitable hiring process that fits their needs. From our blind hiring tool to custom validation studies provided by our team of organisational psychologists, we’re dedicated to helping you achieve your goals to build stronger and more diverse teams.
