Presenter: Debbie Imboden & Diana Nguyen – TELUS Employer Solutions


Recruitment and retention are HR functions that require strategic thought and planning. While lower unemployment rates, an aging population, and skill shortages are challenging, HR professionals are faced with the additional impact first impressions and gut feelings can have on recruitment success. How can we be aware of our (un)conscious bias and minimize them not only in the recruitment cycle but post hire when making development and compensation decisions?

Join us as we discuss how to prevent unfair, inaccurate judgments that may lead you to overlooking talent, or at worst discrimination. We will also look at what kind of biases influence your decision and how biased hiring and management decisions result in less diverse teams and cost your organization money and talent.


In this presentation, you will:


  • Establish a foundational understanding of how bias affects decision-making and long-term talent management decisions
  • Explore the impacts of the kinds of biases that impact recruitment and people management
  • Learn about best practices for awareness and overcoming unconscious bias
  • Learn tips to enhance your organizations Diversity and Inclusion strategy

Who should attend:


  • All HR Professionals with an interest in ensuring a fair and diverse work force that are passionate about creating a positive culture.
