Abstract:

A Monte Carlo study was done to estimate the standardized performance gain Sigma units for personnel who have been optimally selected and classified as a function of the number of alternative job assignments, the applicant rejection rate, the validity of the performance estimates, and the intercorrelation among the estimates. The study extended the number of job assignment categories considered to 500 based on a general solution provided by Brogden for up to 10 jobs. Results indicated that adding job categories with zero applicant rejection improved expected performance from 0.0 Sigma units with 1 job to 3.03 Sigma units with 500 jobs. For the highest level of applicant rejection 90, corresponding gains were 1.75 a units and 3.78 or units respectively. Implications for use of the table were discussed.
