AI-based solution removes information such as names, dates, and addresses from candidate resumes and profiles to promote fair hiring and expand companies’ talent pools
Frederick, Maryland – June 27, 2023 – iHire introduces its Bias Breaker™ feature, a diversity recruitment solution. Powered by artificial intelligence (AI), Bias Breaker hides job applicants’ personal details, such as names, dates, addresses, photos, and social media profile links, from recruiters to promote fair, unbiased hiring decisions.
By removing information that could reveal a candidate’s age, gender, ethnicity, or other demographic characteristics, Bias Breaker empowers employers to evaluate candidates based on their skills and qualifications. As a result, organizations can expand their talent pools, diversify their workforces, and build more inclusive company cultures.
“Whether conscious or unconscious, bias can lead hiring managers to overlook talented candidates and create inequities in the recruiting process,” said Lisa Shuster, iHire’s Chief People Officer. “Our new Bias Breaker feature aims to help employers hire the best fit for the job while furthering their DE&I initiatives.”
Now available to iHire customers with an active Job Slots, Job Wrap, or Resume Search subscription, Bias Breaker is an optional feature that users can take advantage of when screening candidates. When Bias Breaker is on, candidate names, contact information, and photos will be hidden automatically from resumes and iHire profiles. Users can also hide school/organization names, links, and dates, allowing for a fully customized experience.
