Personal subjectivity can allow bias to creep into job descriptions. IBM Watson Talent Frameworks identifies the complete skillset needed for any job and defines industry leading descriptions, including content like behavior statements, coaching tips, development statements and interview questions. This helps organizations remove personal subjectivity and reduce bias.
Using objective assessments can eliminate subjectivity from the selection process. IBM Talent Assessments help you make hiring decisions by measuring the skills and cultural fit required to be successful rather than relying solely on the resume review of recruiters or managers. Our I/O psychology team validates each assessment to ensure the tests do not introduce adverse impact.
IBM Watson Recruitment's Match Score provides ranking of applicants without additional bias. It uses the applicant’s skills and experience matched with the job description. More than that, its Adverse Impact Analysis tool can be used to detect disparities in selection for hiring so that actions can be taken to reduce or eliminate any bias.
