Both of our test platforms were carefully developed over 16 years to deal with the shortcomings, in terms of Reliability and validity, of the academic Harvard Implicit Association Test (IAT). The Harvard IAT was used by many organisations and trainers, but is a research tool and flawed for use in any work context. ‘Bias Test’ and ‘Implicitly®’ deal with all of the many concerns over the Harvard IAT outlined by Hart Blanton and James Jaccard (2006)

At Shire Professional our Unique Selling Point is our psychological knowledge. Primarily we are psychologists, not test sellers. This distinction is at the core of our business. Using robust psychological models we offer a comprehensive implicit bias testing service. This always uses robust psychological models.

Shire Professional believe that the way organisations 'do diversity' has to change. It has to change because what they have been doing has had limited success. Although traditional approaches have raised general awareness of unconscious (implicit) bias amongst and employees they have done little to help individuals manage their own biases. Our bias testing affords personal insight and improved self-awareness for staff, and our platforms come with the supporting documents to help staff ever change.
