Course description

Understanding Bias takes an in-depth look at the nature of bias and how it impacts on the workplace. The course provides psychological insights into how our own behaviour might be affected by prejudice and looks at what we can do to reduce or eliminate its influence in the decisions that we make. Suitable for teams of all types, the course has been designed to help people at all levels including operational managers and staff, HR managers and trainers, and senior executives and business leaders.

Produced in partnership with Professor Binna Kandola of Pearn Kandola LLP, the course contains more than an hour’s worth of insightful video content, including re-staged psychological experiments, original drama scenarios and expert analysis.

This course will give a better understanding of:

  • how and why people are biased
  • how unconscious bias can impact on the workplace and on working relationships
  • what we can do to reduce or eliminate bias from our decision-making process
  • how to address bias in specific situations, such as recruitment and performance management.

Bias matters in the workplace because, at the end of the day, it stops people performing as well as they can and it also means the organisation isn't getting the best out of its employees. We're really not allowing them to perform to their full potential.
