Norway wants “colour-blind” recruitment
The Norwegian state wants to implement “colour-blind” recruitment practices. This is how it intends to achieve this.
“In the State, it is the qualifications, not the name, that will decide who gets the job. It is a goal for the Government that the public sector should mirror the population in Norway. To achieve that, we must keep a watchful eye on our own prejudices when we hire. The Norwegian Government, therefore, initiates a trial with anonymous applications in the public sector that will ensure a colour-blind recruitment practice,” Minister of Municipal Affairs, Monica Mæland (Conservatives), states.
