Bias in Recruiting

During the recruitment process, there is always the risk of bias.

We all have biases, whether they are conscious or not. Sometimes though, the bias people have when looking at a candidate’s professional background plays a pivotal role in their hiring decisions.

In the legal industry, this often seems amplified due to preconceived notions about certain firms, universities, and even high schools.

As a recruitment firm dedicated to finding the best possible fit for their candidates and clients, we understand that this background is not necessarily indicative of the value a candidate can bring their potential employer.

As 2022 shifts our workforce, even more, diversity and inclusivity have become more of a priority in the industry. empire group is dedicated to communicating with clients the value of our candidates despite possible contrary preconceptions.

We believe that a candidate’s value is not formed by where they come from, but where they are going. Often, the candidates we place are those that would have otherwise been rejected by a firm due to bias.

If you are a candidate or a business who shares these values, please reach out to empire group today to see how we can help!
