This course explains how organisations can make sure they are recruiting staff fairly and in accordance with the provisions of the Equality Act.

Introduction

Fair, unbiased and non-discriminatory recruitment doesn’t just enable organisations to comply with the law. It also ensures that they recruit the best people for the job and reap the benefits of a diverse workforce – and that staff are motivated and productive.

This course looks at how our unconscious bias can affect our decisions, the benefits of fair and unbiased recruitment and the key legal considerations for employers when advertising for and recruiting new staff.

Learning Outcomes

This course will give a better understanding of:

  • what the Equality Act says about discrimination on the grounds of ‘protected characteristics’ such as age, disability, race and gender
  • how unconscious bias can affect our recruiting decisions
  • the importance of being aware of the potential for discrimination when drawing up role descriptions and person specifications
  • how we can use positive action programmes to address under-representation of certain groups.
