Biases are inclinations that people hold towards a particular idea, individual, group or belief. They can cause us to act favourably or unfavourably towards groups of people based on characteristics that we perceive them to possess.

Staff are working in a fast changing business climate with unprecedented challenges, tight finances and customers with increasing expectations.
