This online Unconscious Bias training course explains the impact of unconscious bias on people and organisations.

The online course describes what unconscious bias is and how it can have a negative impact on the quality of your decisions and behaviour at work. It describes the different kinds of bias and what steps you can take to reduce the impact of bias at work and in your life in general. It also highlights the importance for organisations to design processes that prevent unconscious bias having a negative effect in the workplace.

What is unconscious bias?

Unconscious biases are associations that you hold subconsciously, and they affect the way you think and feel about others around you. Very often those associations will not be accurate or fair about the specific people you meet and work with.

Unconscious bias affects everyone. It is influenced by your background, personal experiences, societal stereotypes and cultural context. Unconscious bias can influence your attitudes and behaviours towards other people. Also, it can influence decision making in the workplace and contribute to inequality during recruitment, appraisals and promotions.

What are the benefits of Unconscious Bias in The Workplace Training?

Unconscious bias can harm both individuals and companies. This unconscious bias in the workplace training will help you and your employees to achieve the following benefits:

Unconscious bias training helps to make people aware that unconscious bias exists and helps them understand their own biases. This allows them to take steps to slow down their decision-making process and reduce the likelihood that bias will influence their decisions at work or in their personal life.

The training will enable employees to work towards inclusion and improve their workplace relationships and professional interactions. This will create a positive work environment and improve employees’ morale.

The unconscious bias in the workplace training will help you and your employees to address bias in specific situations, such as recruitment and performance management. As a result, your company will acquire a wider pool of talent and maintain employees’ motivation and enthusiasm. In fact, employees who perceive bias against them at work are more likely to be disengaged, plan to leave their jobs or withhold ideas and market solutions. This means that reducing bias in the workplace will encourage employees to stay and lead to increased business productivity and opportunities.
