HackerEarth has always strived to practice fair and unbiased assessments. Therefore, to enhance the candidate experience and ensure fairness in tests or interviews, HackerEarth Assessment and live interviews now support the feature of hiding personally identifiable information of candidates from recruiters. We believe that any personal information of candidates is not a mandatory aspect to get selected for a job role.
Personally identifiable information (PII) is any data that can be used to identify a specific individual. The common details that are considered as PII are name, social security numbers, mailing or email addresses, and phone numbers but technology has expanded the scope of PII considerably. Now, it can include IP addresses, login IDs, social media posts, digital images, geographical location, biometric identifiers, and behavioral data.
Diversity and Inclusion
The main intention of HackerEarth in hiding PII is to promote Diversity and Inclusion in your company. Diversity and Inclusion allow you to implement strategies and practices to support a diverse workplace. These implementations can increase the productivity of your employees and increase the profit of your organization to succeed in the global marketplace.
This feature allows you to practice workplace diversity where you can understand, accept, and value difference between people based on the following criteria:
- Different races, ethnicities, genders, ages, religions, disabilities, and sexual orientations
- Differences in education, personalities, skill sets, experiences, and knowledge bases
This feature allows you to create a collaborative, supportive, and respectful environment that increases the participation and contribution of all employees.
To hide personally identifiable information of candidates, follow these steps:
- Log in to your HackerEarth Assessment account by using your admin credentials.
- Click .
