Unconscious bias is one of the major challenges faced by recruiters while hiring candidates. To solve this challenge, RChilli has recently launched its Resume Redactor API, which promotes unbiased hiring.
Recruiters find it difficult to remove unconscious bias in their recruitment process because it is always unintentionally done and based on their personal likings and preferences. A few examples are affinity bias, status quo bias, confirmation bias, contrast effect, halo effect, etc.
RChilli Resume Redactor ensures that it removes bias from the hiring process by allowing recruiters to choose candidates purely on the basis of skills and experience. It redacts the resume fields that can cause bias, such as personal information, education institution name, employer name, etc. As a result, recruiters can only see the experience and skills of the candidates and are able to select the right candidates.
Not only this, this API is of great use for the recruiting agencies as they can mask resumes before sharing them with the employer.
With the help of this API, the users can
remove unconscious bias from their recruitment process
bring diversity to their team
conduct a fair selection of candidates
On this launch, Inder Pal Singh, Sr. Director-Development, RChilli, said, “At RChilli, we strive to create future-ready products for our users. We understand the importance of blind hiring and how unconscious bias can affect hiring the right candidates. This is why we conceptualized Resume Redactor. It is a configurable API that allows the users to choose the resume fields they want to redact, and we redact the resume by keeping it in its original format.”
