The richness of an organisation lies in the plurality of its cultures, genders and generations or simply in the varied physical styles and individual personalities of its people.
We all have unconscious biases originating in our personal background, education, experience and/or mood of the moment.
5Discovery’s model for managing diversity in recruitment uses virtual reality to provide an immersive environment in which participants experience the recruitment process from the point of view of a manager.
You become aware of your potential biases through your personal choices or alternatively assume the persona of someone with a diverse background, assuming their stance, feeling their emotion, sharing their motivation – you become who they are … result!
The 5Discovery VR module for improving diversity in recruitment invites us to change our outlook, including our unconscious perceptions in order to recruit more ethically and sustainably.
