Why is it so hard to change a recruitment process even if there is substantiated evidence that supports the change? What happens in our brains in the face of change that makes us reluctant and how can we embrace innovation in talent acquisition?
In this episode, Leonie Grandpierre, Equalture’s Head of Science, explains conservatism bias in recruitment, where conservatism bias originates, which biases are related and why it often hinders strategic change and hiring decisions even in the face of sound evidence.
Leonie will also explore moments in the hiring funnel that are most susceptible to conservatism bias, its impact and which biases intersect with conservatism bias.
Lastly, Leonie also shares tips on how we can minimize conservatism bias.
