2012-12-12 07:15:21 - TrainHR, a leading continuing education training provider for the Human Resources industry, will conduct a webinar on the topic, “Not All Assessments Are Created Equal - Demystifying Assessments” on January 15, 2013. Seema Rafay, President and founding Principal of Spectrum Performance Management, a global talent management firm; will be the speaker at this 60-minute session.
HR professionals today have access to a number of assessment techniques that are essentially guided by psychometrics. Assessments are done prior to hiring, to gauge suitability and afterwards, to evaluate performance.
HR however, has to understand that the concept of “one size fits all” does not work in relation to this psychometrics. There are no two employees who are completely alike in terms of abilities, performance and results they can bring to the organization. The problem is created not so much by the psychometrics itself, but by the use of the appropriate one.
This webinar will highlight the importance of using the right assessment technique for appraisals. It will offer insights into how to make optimal use of each of these
depending on the situation in which it is being used. Errors in the selection of, rather than the use, of the right psychometrics can result in serious issues for the organization.
It will result in wastage of resources, cultivation of negative attitudes towards the employer and worst of all, reduced ROI because people don’t feel motivated to continue to work in organizations that carry out sloppy assessments. Selection of the right assessment techniques and criteria will result in a host of good results for the organization, namely right-fit talent selection, building effective teams, increasing productivity, lowering unhealthy employee turnover, and achieving positive ROI.
This webinar will familiarize participants with criteria that need to be applied for selecting the right psychometrics for assessments. It will give them an understanding of what to expect from these.
