Unconscious bias

A key aspect of our People Strategy is to prevent stereotyping of individuals based on any and all dimensions of diversity. It centres on raising awareness of the “unconscious bias” that every one of us has and which can unintentionally influence our decision-making and our behaviour towards others.

We design and organise events as well as face-to-face and web-based training so that employees can participate in dialogues to increase their self-awareness of unconscious biases such as those related to generations, sexual orientation and gender. Our leadership development and management training also highlights the importance of overcoming unconscious bias in all kinds of decision-making situations in people processes such as recruiting, talent nominations and performance evaluation.
