Case Study - How We Addressed Bias in Recruitment Our client is an American manufacturer, It was having issues with the recruitment of local employees to its location in Mexico. All recruitment was being handled by US-based employees with little understanding of Mexican culture. Stakeholders at a higher level had identified unconscious bias or cultural differences as a potential reason why their HR team was failing to find the right people in Mexico. Our job was to run a training course that could help 'unblock' some of the issues the company was facing by helping those responsible for recruitment understand some of the cultural differences they were dealing with in the process. As well as help participants understand Mexican culture, the course heavily focused on dealing with stereotypes, bias and projecting our own cultural judgements on others.
