Implicitly® is a unique online tool which is able both to measure the strength of our people preferences (biases) but also to assess the risk of those biases becoming exclusionary behaviour. Shire professional licence and distribute the test through Hogrefe UK, part of the Hogrefe pan European publishing company (http://www.hogrefe.co.uk/?/page/show/85/ ).
Implicitly® can be used as both an organisational audit ( to identify the types and levels of bias), a personal development tool, and as an evaluation metric to judge the impact of an intervention. . Implicitly® is unique in being a criterion based Implicit Association Test (IAT) developed for commercial use, whereas other IATs are norm based and tell us nothing about the impact of our biases on our behaviour ( see Blanton and Jaccard, 2005).
Shire Professional developed Implicitly® and license versions to Hogrefe UK where they are available to trained users. Versions exist on the basis of Age, Disability, Ethnicity (x3), Gender (x3) and Sexual Orientation (x2). Implicitly® is capable of delivering a wide range of bias tests and bias reduction activities.
Implicitly® can be completed directly and anonymously for audit purposes through a log-in or we can upload email addresses in large batches and send out a unique link. With training the platforms can be used directly by the client, which includes the generation of test taker feedback and self directed or directed coaching materials. The tests can be branded for the client organisation and it is also possible to both brand the PDF feedback the tests produce, and to add client specific information such as policy references, contact numbers or intranet addresses for support.
Implicitly® is now supported by Groupiness, a profiling metric which helps people and their coaches better understand the beliefs, thinking and personality traits which make them more vulnerable to their biases becoming behaviour at work and resistant to attitude change/management.
The development of Implicitly® has been well documented in various papers over the past 3 years:
