Some of the most interesting and effective technological innovation I have seen this year has been in the area of assessment. Whilst many of the new approaches aren’t yet widespread, I think they point towards a coming fundamental shift in the way we think about this part of the recruiting process.
My guest this week is Dr Nathan Mondragon, Chief IO Psychologist at Hirevue. Hirevue have been doing some fascinating work within the science of assessment and its ability, via data and technology, to accurately predict performance.
In the interview we discuss:
• How technology and science are challenging the established norms of assessment
• The hidden data in words, inflection, pauses and facial micro expressions
• How video analytics can be combined with subsequent job performance data to develop predictive hiring models.
• Using science to understand the art of recruiting and the changing role of humans within the recruitment process
Nathan talks about the types of tangible ROI that employers in a number of different industries have gained from using this approach and he also shares his thoughts on what we can expect to happen in the future.
