Abstract
Different subgroups display different means on specific performance predictors, leading to the quality- diversity dilemma in the personnel selection context. However, since classification situations still arise in practice, the reality of effect sizes will lead to adverse impact in these personnel decision situations as well. The current method to estimate the classification efficiency given a set of predictors, different subgroups and their characteristics, was extended to yield the adverse impact ratio as well. Additionally, this method was implemented in an algorithm that leads to predictor weights that result in optimal trade-offs between efficiency and diversity.
