The Applied Academy

Discover how to transform your hiring process through our unconscious bias training.

Research, and evidence are at our core. We're built on behavioural science, to use nudges to de-bias hiring and build an equitable future.

60% of people hired with this method would not have been found with conventional methods.

We have three pathways to suit your goals and time:

The Academy is made up of four modules which will take you on a journey to debias your hiring.

1. Bias in hiring - An introduction to unconscious bias and how it impacts hiring.

2. Predictive hiring - How to screen without bias and use work samples instead of CVs.

3. Interviews and metrics Why you should use structured interviews how to use data effectively.

4. Crafting an inclusive job - How to source and attract better quality candidates, fairly.

Each module is made up of bitesize lessons, to make the course flexible and fit around your schedule easily. You'll learn through videos, quizzes, articles and helpful resources to keep things interesting and varied.

At the end of each module, you'll complete a quick assessment to solidify your learning and earn badges in doing so!
