When it comes to finding and hiring the very best talent, small business owners don’t always have the luxury of a talent specialist or HR professional to guide the process. And when hiring is down to one person (you) it’s hard to know what to look for in a candidate, what questions to ask, and how to determine whether someone is a good fit for your team. And whilst having to deal with these challenges, entrepreneurs also have to make sure they don’t let their own bias creep in during the process. But how can founders make sure they’re keeping their views objective when we all have a level of unconscious bias? Of course, there are methods like blind CVs (where candidates omit personal information such as age, gender, and race information), as well as introducing skills challenges, but even these methods aren’t foolproof when it comes down to eliminating bias. AI could be the answer.
