People involved in recruitment have a moral, perhaps legal, duty to learn just how they are subconsciously biased and affected by stereotypes.
Decision makers need to know when their judgement is being skewed and distorted.
Leaders of people should know just how their behaviour affects employees – and those employees’ ability to do their jobs.
All of this is covered in this fascinating short book on cognitive biases in the workplace. It is an abridged version of Bias Beware. Please do not buy this if you already have Bias Beware, as most of what is in this book is in there.
