A traditional annual performance appraisal is an opportunity for companies and organizations to increase the strength and diversity of their talent pipelines. However, our unintended, unconscious biases often hijack our mind and permit us to make decisions that project our experiences and values onto others. When this sort of thinking is prevalent in talent management processes, it can quickly reduce representational diversity.
