The United Nations has continually delivered on its mandate to ensure a safer and healthier world for present and future generations.  In honor of United Nations Day, we thought we'd share a few great points on how to recognize and reduce bias when conducting performance reviews from SHRM's HR Magazine article, "An Impartial Review: Guard Against Hidden Biases When Conducting Performance Evaluations" by Eric Krell.

Recommendations to Recognize and Reduce Hidden Biases:

  • Conduct training, raise awareness.
  • Define and communicate the purpose.
  • Enlist help. Consider 360-degree evaluations, a panel of performance reviewers, or have your supervisor review the evaluation as well.
  • Establish comfort. Strive to remove employees' discomfort before and during the evaluation.

If you need extra help in developing more clear, concise performance evaluations, creating SMART goals or establishing a training program, let us help. Call Helios HR today at 703-471-8338.
