‘Poshness test’ is the new glass ceiling: Working-class denied top jobs as firms prefer ‘well-travelled candidates with the right accent’ | The Independent

Two things. First, I’m fairly sure this isn’t ‘new’. Second, I see this as the symptom of a wider problem around the way we recruit people. We all have both conscious and unconscious biases. Some of these can be mitigated, but the best way to see if someone is (or will be) good at the job is to see them in action. Badges and new approaches like http://workshape.io/may help with this to some extent.
