To my fellow HR Professionals - What will you do to lead your company forward? Researchers conducted an analysis of multiple studies comparing how structured interviews are affected by potential bias such as attractiveness, pregnancy, weight, sex, race, and use of non-verbal cues.

Mimic what the big firms are doing - look to the consulting firms like Deloitte or PwC or Accenture and analyze their hiring process. Do as much as possible to prevent bias prior to the in-person interview and make the in-person interview as quantitatively scored as possible. Sometimes bringing in outside counsel for this specific problem, or hiring a recruiting agency can help solve these issues. The first step to counteracting bias, however, is being aware of it and prioritizing the mitigation of it.
