When asked what factors were affecting their ability to get interviews or new job roles, 51% of respondents said they felt age played a part, while 25% said gender.
“Bias is an intrinsic part of the human character but by harnessing technology in the right way we can start to counteract this” — this is the bold claim of Adrian Ezra, CEO of JamieAi, a UK-based HR-tech start-up.
