Adverse Impact

At HighMatch, we care deeply about ensuring that all of the assessments we build on behalf of our clients do not adversely impact a protected subgroup.

The HighMatch Approach

Our goal from the beginning has been to design assessments with no adverse impacts on individuals of any race, gender, age, or ethnicity.

We are proud to say that our assessments do not yield statistically significant differences on the basis of race, gender, age, or ethnicity.

Even still, mitigating adverse impacts is an ongoing effort and we will continue to monitor subgroup differences for each of our assessments.

We’re Committed to Bias-free Insights

Our psychology team strictly adheres to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures as well as the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology’s (SIOP) Principles for the Validation and Use of Personnel Selection Procedures.

Local Adverse Impact Analysis

For enterprise organizations who have completed a job analysis and a validation study but have yet to complete an adverse impact study, HighMatch can help.

Our in-house psychologists will partner with your team to perform a holistic, statistical review of the hiring decisions made based on your assessment insights to determine if any subgroup was adversely impacted.
