2024

This is the tendency for people in a group or team to assume that someone else will take responsibility or action in a situation, and to remain passive or inactive themselves. For example, if a group of hiring managers are discussing a candidate and no one speaks up to raise concerns or objections, they may be more likely to assume that no one has any concerns, and to proceed with the hiring decision without further discussion or evaluation. The bystander effect can cause teams to make unbalanced or uncoordinated hiring decisions, and it can lead them to overlook potential risks or problems in the hiring process.
