Use An Objective Third Party To Make Better Hires

You’ve no doubt heard the line “My mind’s already made up, don’t confuse me with the facts.” Unfortunately, many hiring managers unknowingly have this mentality.

Confirmation bias is a tendency of people to favor information that confirms their beliefs.  People display this bias when they gather or remember information selectively and ignore information that goes against their beliefs. Whether we like it or not, we all have confirmation bias and try as we might, it still impacts our hiring decisions.

The best way to prevent confirmation bias from contributing to poor hires is to have a third party expert assist in the hiring process.  Whether conducting interviews, analyzing assessment results, or performing reference checks, the objectivity offered by an impartial third party can prevent making a hiring mistake.

Empower hiring managers with an unbiased selection expert to help with the hiring decision, and you’ll make more successful hires.
