Blind Hiring Frequently Asked Questions

Q

What is blind recruitment?

A

Blind recruitment (also known as blind hiring or blind screening) is the process of removing all information from résumés and applications that could result in conscious or unconscious bias during the hiring process.

Q

What’s the difference between blind recruitment and name-blind recruitment?

A

Name-blind recruitment is the process of removing candidate names from applications and résumés. It’s a form of blind recruitment but because it only disguises the candidate’s name, it’s not as effective at reducing bias as a full blind hiring process.

Name-blind recruiting is usually chosen by companies that want to get started with blind recruiting but find completely anonymizing résumés and applications too time consuming because they don’t have blind hiring software to automate the process.

Q

What information does Pinpoint’s blind recruitment software anonymize?

A

Pinpoint’s blind recruitment feature removes the applicant’s name, contact information, age, gender, race, and photo from applications and résumés.

Q

What are the limitations of blind recruitment?

A

Blind recruitment is often billed as a quick fix for improving diversity. But there are two key limitations:

Attracting a diverse candidate pool

If there isn’t a diverse candidate pool, blind recruitment won’t improve diversity. That said, organizations that demonstrate they take diversity seriously find attrating a diverse candidate pool easier.

Thinking about how you approach recruitment marketing (from where you advertise vacancies to the wording of your job descriptions) can have a significant impact on your ability to attract a diverse candidate pool. If you’d like to talk to one of our recruitment marketing experts about this, you can schedule a free consultation.

The interview process

Blind recruitment only works during the pre-interview selection process. Once candidates arrive for interview, conscious and unconscious bias can still creep in. That’s why we recommend using interview scorecards to make the interview process as fair and objective as possible.

Q

Can I use Pinpoint’s blind hiring software with my existing applicant tracking system?

A

It’s not currently possible use Pinpoint’s blind hiring software as a stand-alone feature alongside your existing applicant tracking system.

We do have several clients that have switched to using Pinpoint as their applicant tracking system because of our diversity and inclusion features. Many of these clients use one of our standard or custom integrations to push candidate data into their existing HR and payroll systems.

For more information about integrations and how other companies are approaching this, you can visit our integrations page or speak to our team.
