Exploring the Role of Fairness in Assessment when Creating a Diverse Workforce

Diversity within a workforce can bring innovation and competetibe advantage. Appreciating and recognising differences can deliver business benefit. And yet, how does an organization ensure it is building and drawing from a wider talent pool, being fair to applicants and offering equal opportunities for employment when trying to recruit a diverse workforce or bring together diverse teams?

A good selection process starts with assessing those qualities of candidates that are related directly to job performance - and excluding the criteria that are not related to the job from any decision making. This creates a fair assessment process for all applicants in selection decisions.

This white paper outlines how fair testing can be beneficial for organisational effectiveness by promoting diversity.
