Wondering how to reduce adverse impact?

Using real-world examples, we’ll make sure you understand adverse impact and approaches to minimizing it. 

Every personnel decision you make runs the risk of resulting in adverse impact, which is a substantially different selection rate between groups that puts members of certain groups at a disadvantage.  Understanding this area of liability is often crucial.


DCI consultants can conduct adverse impact analyses on your organization’s application, promotion, and termination decisions, identifying areas of concern from a statistical and a practical standpoint.


Our consultants will provide best practice recommendations on personnel decisions to mitigate your risk moving forward.


Steps Analysis
If you are complying with the Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures (UGESP), it may be useful to evaluate the steps, or stages, in a selection process that may be causing a barrier to an employment outcome.  DCI consultants are experts in adverse impact and the detailed stages of defining selection procedures.  Our statistical experts can evaluate which stage of the hiring or selection process (e.g., interview process, resume review, selection test) may be the root cause of adverse impact.
