Worthy Bias Training
Inside Worthy Bias Training
Extensive research has shown that individuals act in biased ways regardless of explicitly believing that prejudice and discrimination are wrong. So it is not surprising that courses such as diversity and inclusion make up a significant portion of an organisation's HR programs for staff and managers.
However at Financial Wellbeing we have identified an unconscious bias that is both recognised and understood, but much less acknowledged by organisations, staff and practitioners ... and that is worthy bias. Worthy Bias can be defined as the tendency to prioritise delivery of service provision to clients that are more engaged, available or compliant to the practitioner's or service's treatments, facilities or assistance programs. As such client's deemed 'less engaged' but no less deserving, fall through the cracks from receiving much needed support and assistance.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights - Article 1. All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
To support organisations, their employees, practitioners and clients we have developed Worthy Bias Training, a highly engaging program that promotes a more resilient, motivated, compassionate and happy workforce, as well as improving service and treatment delivery for clients.
The purpose of this course is to raise awareness of both unconscious and cognitive worthy bias and its impact on workplace decision making, programs, policies and procedures, as well a promote cognitive and behavioral change, for the benefit of clients.
