CIRANO invites its partners to an exclusive Human Resources Forum on the theme of "Hiring Discriminations".


Claude Montmarquette, Emeritus Professor in the Department of Economics at the Université de Montréal, and Brahim Boudarbat, Full Professor in the School of Industrial Relations of the Université de Montréal, both CIRANO Researchers and Fellows, will present their study "Name as a Factor in Hiring Discrimination: Results from an Experimental Study".


This study focuses on the issue of employers' behaviour at the time of hiring by carrying out a laboratory experiment in the form of a survey conducted among future recruiters in order to find out how they perceive the problem of professional integration of immigrants and to highlight the factors they consider important when hiring.


This presentation will be followed by a period of exchange of ideas, experiences and knowledge with partners.
