Unconscious bias can affect our decisions in all areas of life, but especially in the workplace. We explore the different types of bias, and how to reduce their impact
We may try to be as objective as possible when making important decisions, especially when these relate to work. However, as human beings, we are all subject to unconscious bias (also known as implicit bias) in one way or another, but the more we are aware of this, the more we can mitigate it. In this article, we’ll define unconscious bias, explore the eight types of bias that might be affecting your decisions, and offer suggestions for how to mitigate bias in the workplace.
