In our rejoinder to the comments of Kehoe (this issue) and Potosky, Bobko and Roth (this issue) we emphasize that our proposal on Pareto-optimal predictor composite formation is a complementary and not a competitive alternative for reducing the tension between selection quality and adverse impact. Our work addresses the decisions to be made once one has decided to use a predictor composite. We also further clarify the basic features of Pareto-optimal tradeoffs and Pareto-optimal composites within the context of personnel selection. In particular, we indicate that Pareto-optimal tradeoffs between validity and adverse impact emerge because these goals are different and not because of any dualism between them.
