Consulting Services: Employee Selection and Validation Research

Employment selection tools like tests, interviews, and resume screens can offer substantial value to employers by increasing the likelihood that the right applicants are selected. When a selection tool has adverse impact against a protected group, that toolmust be validated to be legally defensible.

Validation research can be a critical component to understanding the legal defensibility of employment decision making related to hiring, promotion, termination, and pay. In addition to legal considerations, validation research also inform on the quality of those decision making systems. For example, are organizational hiring processes increasing the likelihood that selected candidates can perform the job more successfully than candidates that are rejected? Validation research can help inform on how confident organizations are that their selection decisions are good ones. For this reason it is a best practice for organizations to proactively validate their selection systems regardless of EEO context. DCI has substantial expertise and experience in developing and validating selection systems in the EEO context.
