Talent Basics Series: The value of personality in selection

Discover the power of cognitive ability, personality, and career interest evaluations in predicting performance in our Talent Basics Series.

eLearning

Meta-analytical evidence suggests that cognitive ability, personality, and career interest assessments are some of our best psychometric predictors of job performance.

Properly constructed measures of the three variables can provide invaluable information to key stakeholders when selection decisions must be made. This five-part series will focus on the utility of the aforementioned variables in selection, including job performance as a criterion to validate the aforementioned assessments against, and sensible ways to combine the information to make selection decisions.

This programme is valid for 1 month and you will need to complete the full programme within a month of receiving the access link.

The value of personality in selection

Even though there seemingly was a resolution on the use of personality in selection in 2007, criticisms of the predictive validity of off-the-shelf measures of personality do emerge from time to time. This session will reaffirm the use of personality in selection and consider a few more nuanced perspectives on personality that might increase predictive validity in selection.
