Can increasing the degree of structure when selecting applicants increase fairness? Stu- dents were asked to perform a computerized selection task and were either provided with tools for systematizing information about the applicants (structured selection) or no such tools (unstructured selection).Wehypothesized and found that a structured process, where employing recruitment tools rather than the recruiter’s impressionistic judgment is key, improves the ability to identify job-relevant criteria and hence selecting more qualified appli- cants, even when in-group favoritism is tempting (e.g. when the outgroup applicants are more competent). Increasing structure helped recruiters select more competent applicants and reduced ethnic discrimination. Increasing the motivation to carefully follow the struc- tured procedure strengthened these effects further.Weconclude that structure pays off, and that motivational factors should be taken into account in order for it to have the optimal effect.", "link"=>"http://www.mendeley.com/research/tools-fairness-increased-structure-selection-process-reduces-discrimination", "reader_count"=>2, "reader_count_by_academic_status"=>{"Student > Ph.
