Job Performance and Diversity
Your company is seeking to hire several new employees for a new division that you are the supervisor for. The one criteria that your management team asks you to look at when hiring these new employees is to obtain a diverse division, but also hire the best available applicants. Explain the dilemma(s) that you will face? Consider predictors of effective job performance and racial diversity.
The use of biodata (past behaviors and experiences) is an excellent source of information for understanding and predicting future employee behavior. Discuss the value added aspects of biodata as: 1) An alternative to many traditional assessments that seem to deal with persistent issues regarding adverse impact, and 2) why organizations may want to expand the scope of predictors beyond the domain of worker cognitive abilities alone.
