L’obiettivo di ogni campagna di ricerca e selezione è quello di riuscire ad individuare e assumere il candidato più qualificato per una posizione vacante. La ricerca del talento, però, rischia di essere ostacolata dalla comparsa dei cosiddetti bias cognitivi, dei pregiudizi inconsapevoli che possono insorgere nel recruiter in fase di selezione, condizionando la scelta del candidato. Nell’ottica di minimizzare la comparsa di questi bias e consentire all’HR Manager di scegliere, in modo imparziale, il candidato più giusto per la sua o altre aziende, Inda offre la possibilità di selezionare i candidati in incognito generando in tempo reale un CV anonimo da condividere con colleghi e clienti.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is one of the main 2021 recruiting trends. One of the merits of applying AI to the HR world is that it helps to reduce cognitive bias just like blind recruitment. Although it is often specifically talked about in reference to gender, ethnicity, age and religion, bias can relate to any prejudice brought against the candidate during the search and selection process that potentially compromising their evaluation. For this reason, automatic screening systems, semantic search, as well as blind hiring and anonymisation of CVs are now preferred methods.
The anonymous CV is a resume that is examined ‘blindly’ by the recruiter. An anonymised CV hides, or disguises, some of the candidate’s personal information, information that could give rise to bias and compromise the selection process. By obscuring some of the CV data, HR Managers and recruiters can focus on the skills and professional experience of the candidate, and effectively evaluate on the basis of experience and potential.
In order to make the recruitment process more transparent for candidates and companies, and to select the most qualified candidates without being influenced by other factors, Inda has developed an Anonymous Resume / CV system.
This new feature allows you to anonymise a digital document (e.g. pdf, doc, docx), whether it’s a CV or a cover letter. Starting from the CV file that is uploaded by the candidate in response to an advertisement, Inda allows you to generate an anonymised copy of the same CV in real time (thus maintaining the original layout / template). The new anonymised copy obscures some personal information, including:

As a tool suitable for blind recruitment, optimisation work is already underway to also disguise some of the specific language in the CV or cover letter. It will soon be possible to anonymise and hide even textual expressions that could reveal details of the candidate (for example, the expression “I’m a female graduate” indicates the gender of the person).
The anonymous CV is a blind recruitment tool useful not only for companies and HR teams who want to carry out disguised selections, but also for Employment Agencies, Search & Selection Companies and hiring outsourcing companies who want to share anonymous CVs externally, with customers and clients. In addition to this, CV anonymisation has other positive effects, for example:
