Eliminating hiring bias to create a stronger workforce

A conversation with Mike Rosenbaum, founder, Catalyte

We often say that talent is everywhere, but there are barriers to opportunity. Gender, race, and class can prevent a hiring manager from considering some of the best candidates. And these same hiring managers can also be swayed by a “perfect” resume that doesn’t tell them everything.

In this episode of Work in Progress, Mike Rosenbaum, founder of Catalyte, and I talk about how data-driven tools that can better identify people who will thrive, and who will stay at a company.

Rosenbaum explains how Catalyte, and spinoff company Arena, use data to help build a diverse and sustainable workforce. We discuss how data-driven tools can be more productive and effective than traditional hiring, both for the employer and the employee.

It’s a fascinating discussion about how data analytics can, and is, informing hiring.
