“WorkJuggle delivered Unconscious Bias training for our company. The feedback has been really positive, the subject was managed sensitively and at the right depth for people. I would highly recommend WorkJuggle for bespoke training, they are responsive to needs and agile even when delivering.”
Our Unconscious Bias training addresses the biases present in the workplace that can hinder performance and negatively affect organisations. It explores how biases impact hiring, retention, and promotions. Participants gain a clear understanding of bias and the neuroscience behind it.
Our unconscious brain makes snap decisions and judgements all the time.
By bringing awareness to the different types of biases this allows participants to recognise and identify how they can affect a business.
What manoeuvres can be made to avoid the pitfalls of unconscious bias in the workplace.

At the end of the training, participants will be made aware of and be able to identify unconscious biases in the workplace.
Through a series of interactive activities and individual self-reflection, participants will learn what strategies individuals and organisations can take to minimise the negative impact of our Unconscious Bias.
This can take the form of an action plan companies can take away and help to continue develop their Diversity & Inclusion strategy.
Our Unconscious Bias training looks at the biases we all bring to the workplace. While Unconscious Bias is inherent in everyone and perfectly natural, it can hinder performance across a company and negatively impact an organisation.
Unconscious Biases can for example influence who we hire, why someone may stay or leave an organisation and even determine who is promoted or not promoted. Tackling our Unconscious Bias is necessary to level the playing field and improve business performance.
We help participants to gain a clear understanding of what bias is, and how the bias circuit operates in the brain. We explore the inputs in society that embed biassed thinking in our unconscious. Participants become aware of the impact that even a little bias can have on an individual’s career trajectory.
We at WorkJuggle pride ourselves with delivering content combines the latest voices in Unconscious Bias and is backed by the very latest research in this area.
This programme allows time for interactive activities, individual self-reflection, videos and individual reading. This makes our sessions highly engaging and thought provoking.
As part of the engagement process, we ask participants to engage in light pre-work. Similarly, we share additional resources post training. While our style is informal and fun, we are adept at facilitating conversations among colleagues in a light hearted way with significant impact.
WorkJuggle delivered an engaging, immersive and interactive session that helped us raise awareness of and understand Unconscious Bias, explore its many dimensions, how it permeates much of what we do and to recognise its link to effective decision making.
From the onset Ciara demonstrated an ability to work closely with my colleagues and me to understand our needs as a business and to develop a customized session!
As a result our attendees left with an understanding of how powerful the mind is, how many of our thoughts are unconscious, that we may have biases that we are not aware of and how inclusion can be a benefit to business, valuing the strength different people bring to the team.
“The interactivity and the energy of the instructor. The open conversation was excellent too. It
made me think beyond the programmed, indoctrinated standards I wasn’t even aware of.”
“I thought Melissa was great, she dealt with a difficult topic with enthusiasm and openness,
which helped discussions flow. I found the whole session very interesting.”
“The training was really great – I could have spent an entire day at it!”

session so engaging, one of the best I have had!”
