Minimizing Bias in Performance Management


  • Kristen Swigart, Senior People Scientist, Culture Amp

Humans are biologically conditioned to be biased, and whilst biases themselves aren't always right or wrong they can often result in unfair decisions.

Bias can creep into all areas of work, but can have serious implications in more high stake situations such as performance reviews, and even with the best intentions, managers inevitably bring bias into the performance management process.

We will explore what organizations can do to ensure their performance review processes are as bias-free as possible.

What you'll learn:

  • What do we mean by bias?
  • The impact of bias in performance reviews
  • Common biases and how to overcome them
