Can you identify the unique combination of values that drives performance in your business?

Good pattern recognition allows you to make better decisions, short-circuit lengthy processes, avoid mistakes and better understand risks, but it has a downside too. Just because you can see a pattern in what has gone before, it is no guarantee that those same things will be true in the future. Barbara argues that pattern recognition produces particularly flawed results in the hiring process. We all want to hire people like us, but true innovation comes through diversity.

Recruiters know that they should strip out any markers that trigger unconscious bias when interviewing – but unconscious bias is hard to fight. She reflects on the human tendency to make judgments about potential new employees quickly in the initial interview. Exploring how hiring managers can avoid bias and make smarter hiring decisions. This session is relevant to anyone who plays a part in the hiring and promotion process in their organisation.

Speaker: Barbara Hyman, CEO, PredctiveHire

Barbara started her career as a solicitor but quickly realised her skills and personality were better suited to business. As well as 10 years at the Boston Consulting Group, she’s held leadership roles in a range of sectors, including the arts, professional services and tech. Most recently she was on the Executive team at the largest digital company in Australia - the REA Group. Now she’s bringing her energy and insight to PredictiveHire, where she is excited by the opportunity to reinvent how organisations and leaders make the most important decisions in business – who to hire and who to promote .
