There’s actually an article on LinkedIn that says so. The solution isn’t to do anything about the prejudice job recruiters, the solution is to take the names off of all the resumes so that all the job candidates are anonymous. Doing so will lead to a better choice of candidates in the end, because in the end BNY Mellon will have no clue who the hell they are hiring! This is all according to EMEA region head Hani Kablawi. This approach is being billed as a bold stance for diversity. It’s not only for the applicants sake, but this is how they will create a work environment that encourages everybody in the organization to deliver their best.
I’m sorry but is this not the stupidest thing you’ve ever heard in you’re entire life!!! This is the type of backwards thinking that rules the corporate world of BNY Mellon.
In the end, the only thing this idea is gonna accomplish is a higher turnover rate because they hired the wrong person for the job.
