Cognitive biases are essential. They are a matter of survival. If our brain were not equipped with strategies to break down the world, we would face computational malfunction (or the human brain equivalent) as we could not make sense of all the information hitting our five senses. However, it is important that we shine a light on the way that biases limit our judgement, perceptions, rationality and how our thinking is intrinsically flawed.

If you can minimise the bias in your recruitment screening processes you are better placed to create a diverse workforce for the future orientating your organisation for a market leading position.
