Nisbett and Timothy DeCamp Wilson (1977) in efforts to add supporting evidence to an ideal similar to the Halo Effect. They staged two interviews with participants where the interview in both was a man that had a distinct accent (Nisbett & Wilson,1977). The interviewer in one group was as charming as he could be in his “appearance and mannerisms and accent” (Nisbett & Wilson, 1977). In the other, he was instructed to basically act more strict and harsh to the subjects. The resulting difference in ratings of the interviewer’s personality and other factors by the participants spoke to how people immediately judge someone based on how they presented themselves through multiple characteristics.
How Does Halo Effect Influence Our Daily Lives? Halo effect is one of the cognitive bias.

Helping performance raters avoid bias is an important factor in creating a legally sound performance management system (Aguinis, 2013). All people leaders will be required to attend yearly and bi-yearly training to help manage the performance of employees. They will also be required to justify their ratings to their direct leader. Once the leader approves the rating, the performance review will be made available to the employee. The employee will be able to leave feedback and sign the performance review. Once signatures have been received the performance review will not be

A bias is an opinion about whether a person or idea is outstanding or inferior, that influence decisions. The article mentions eight biases which are can direct toward interviewees. Some biases can help candidates makes a good impression on the interviewer, such as The Halo Effect Bias, Stereotyping and Generalization Bias; Also, some others can be detrimental to the candidates, such as The Contrast Bias and The Gut Feeling Bias.

For example, they could be motivated to come to work because there is no bias. However, if he doesn’t hire Dr. Soysa, the staff would feel discouraged to work. Since they are being judged a lot by the way they appear. They would get the message that in order to achieve more in this hospital I would need to look great for the public eyes. In addition, they would feel that there is no measure to judge their performance and credentials. Employees would feel that there is no diverse body of talent in the workplace.
There are many common errors in judgements, but a few that I have the most experience with are stereotyping, the “halo effect”, and snap judgements (Bethel University, 2013). I think when it comes to stereotyping, we are all guilty of it at some point in our lives. I can

The employee turnover in health care industry is very high. In fact in some of the US states, it is double the national average of 15.6%. The statistics related to employee turnover rate are highly alarming and are growing even worse day by day. While on the one hands it would appear that the chief reason behind this phenomenon is the relatively short supply of talented individuals or workers(Jones, 2000). But over time research has identified another important factor behind this phenomenon which is the mismanagement of human resources in health care sector. Limited talent supply coupled with poor human resource management have led to compounding the problem. Due to poor health care workforce management the turnover rate in this sector has remained high. An aging talent pool which is not being replaced at the rate it is depleting has compounded the problems being faced by the health care industry.
The Halo Effect is the idea that global evaluations about a person (e.g. she is likeable) bleed over into judgements about their specific traits (e.g. she is intelligent). It was deemed the “halo effect” because our perception of others also creates a perception of a halo above their heads. People often only perceive what they want to perceive. An example of this affect is the obsession that some people have with celebrities. Because most Hollywood stars are attractive, we often associate other likable traits with them such as friendliness and intelligence.
High Employee Turnover Affects Your Entire Team Obviously, your entire team is negatively affected as employees come and go: Workloads increase and schedules change, both of which can harm the quality of care an employee is able to provide to persons being served.

One HR issue this article can be applied to is ineffective performance reviews and training for management. Many companies base their performance reviews around what a manager is doing wrong, but creating a more evidence-based survey focused around specific strengths a manger should excel in helps the corporation to be future-based. Like Google, the company can identify eight characteristics of good mangers and create the survey based around those eight pillars. If a manger is deficient in a certain category they can take classes to strengthen that specific characteristics rather than have to sit through a general training highlighting things they are already good at.
