World’s First ‘Fully Blind Hiring Process’ Paves Way For Great Candidate Experiences 

The global unemployment rate may have fallen to pre-pandemic levels to 5.3%, but a quick look at your LinkedIn feed will show that for most hopeful job seekers around the world, a lack of inclusivity, transparency, and integrity in recruitment processes leaves a lot to be desired.

In a first-of-its-kind experiment to counter conscious and unconscious biases, a Brazilian Ai-recruitment startup called Jobecam partnered with UAE headquartered CFC Big Ideas, to hire their candidate – Tbilisi-based Maria Bezhuashvili – through the fully blind hiring cycle that focused solely on her skills, qualifications, and experience.

Blind hiring could very well lead the way in transforming recruitment practices worldwide. All CVs are anonymous, fully removing any and all personal information such as candidate’s name, gender, age, ethnicity etc. – from the job application, all the way to the final interview and hiring decision. This includes masking the candidate’s face with an avatar, and modifying their voice with voice-masking technology. Sounds scary or superb?

CFC Big Ideas is the parent company of Global Inclusion Online Forum (GIOF), a digital platform that promotes DEI in the workplace.
