How Xencov reduced Similarity Bias

Primary inhibitors of diversity in the recruiting process is candidate referrals

Talent teams rank employee referrals as the most important source of talent. But relying on or prioritizing employee referrals comes at a cost. In particular, it manifests in the psychological phenomenon known as the “similarity principle”. That is, we are more likely to like people who share similar beliefs and backgrounds. Thus, employees are incentivized to refer candidates who are similar to them. This drastically reduces the diversity of the candidate pool

Using Suitable, our HR managers were able to actively scout potential talent and not just rely on employees for referral. It acted as a additional source of talent pool for us"- Alfin Babu, Business Head, Xencov
