Challenge unconscious bias in the workplace

Our unconscious bias e-learning courses use practical, engaging activities to develop your staff and managers’ ability and confidence to work more inclusively. Developing genuine awareness of how unconscious bias operates – and practical tools to overcome it – will allow your business to make the most of the diversity at its disposal. Our e-learning explores not only the science and theory of unconscious bias but also what your people can do about it day in, day out.

Increasing Performance

Culturally intelligent leaders are 3.5 times more likely to get the full potential out of their staff

Supporting LGBT+

Your workforce could be 10-30% more productive if all your LGBT employees felt comfortable being out at work

Proven to be effective

Our acted video scenarios show typical workplace scenarios in which unconscious bias might appear. We check and test understanding along the way and provide practical takeaways that your staff can begin using immediately at work.

This approach is proven to be effective in changing attitudes and behaviours. Our course for global recruiters, Harvey Nash, demonstrated a 96% increase in understanding and confidence around unconscious bias. The programme won the Nimble eLearning Course of Year Award for 2017 and has gone from strength to strength.

What our clients say

Diversity and inclusion has become a common language in the business over the past 12 months. The custom e-learning developed by EW Group was a new departure for us but it has had a noticeable effect on our ability to self-reflect and be aware about unconscious bias. The e-learning was embraced by everyone in the company. Working with EW Group enabled us to communicate key messages, new ideas and fresh approaches. The response has been great.

Course overview

Components in your unconscious bias e-learning course may include (non-exhaustive list):

Unconscious bias e-learning with practical outcomes

  • Clearly articulate their commitment to overcoming unconscious bias in the workplace
  • Acknowledge the subtle ways in which unconscious bias plays out at work
  • Feel clear about the various aspects within their roles that may be prone to unconscious bias (in decision making, for example)
  • Identify opportunities to promote diversity best practice and cultural adaptability
  • Employ a set of practical tools and action plans to address unconscious bias, assumption and stereotyping wherever they work.

 

We encourage all participants to consider the implications that wider difference (for example, social class) has on the decisions they make. We focus on what can be done, given that we all have biases.

In practical terms, this will mean building individual awareness of unconscious bias, developing an understanding of its impact in the workplace, and giving learners a series of practical strategies, they can apply to their daily decision-making.

Related Work

Harvey Nash wanted to engage their UK teams in mitigating unconscious bias and the impact it can have on talent attraction and development. They initially approached us with the task of delivering an unconscious bias training programme for over 300 hiring managers, to be delivered through a suite of online resources. Our bespoke e-learning module was so well received that it would later be rolled out to all UK staff.
