Good vs. Bad Anchors in Recruitment: Key Information for Hiring the Right Candidate
What piece of information serves as a bad anchor in the recruitment process? What could be a good anchor when deciding to hire or not to hire a candidate? Anchoring bias influences an individual to base their decision on a particular reference point.
In this episode, Leonie Grandpierre, Equalture’s Head of Science, explains anchoring bias. In our conversation we cover the following topics: The definition of anchoring bias, examples of anchoring bias in everyday life, the impact of anchoring bias on the recruitment process, the moments that are most sensitive to anchoring bias in recruitment, good and bad anchors, biases that are closely related to anchoring bias, and how one can minimize its impact on decision making.
