In this best practice guide, we examine how talent professionals can ensure fairness in their selection practices. Selection decisions pose a dilemma for organizations. Companies have a commercial imperative to maximize the economic benefit and utility from new appointments. However, this commercial imperative must be balanced against diversity and inclusion initiatives and affirmative action policies.
In this whitepaper, we cover the following topics:
- Legislative factors
- Different methods of decision-making and their implications for fairness
- Cut scores and considerations when setting them
- Bias versus discrimination in selection
- Best practices in using talent assessments for selection
