Conference Description

This webinar will examine using simulations or job samples as a powerful, predictive selection tool complementing more traditional techniques such as screening of resumes, references, and employment interviews.
Following a brief review of the history and research underlying the use of simulations, the webinar will explore the wide range of simulation options available and methods of choosing, constructing, administering, and evaluating candidate results.

By using practical applications from positions ranging from entry-level positions to top executives, we will broaden the selection toolkit of participants to add simulations to the assessment mix.

Why should you attend: Simulations, or job samples as they are often described, are the clear winners in the selection accuracy race, yet they are severely under-utilized as a pre-employment (or pre-promotion) assessment technique. This webinar seeks to remedy this by providing participants with the understanding and tools to create, administer, and evaluate candidate performance in this highly predictive methodology.

After a brief look at the history of simulations and how they have improved selection accuracy, we will explore the toolbox of selection methods available and explore how simulations might factor into the mix.

We will then examine how simulations might function in positions ranging from semi-skilled workers to chief executive hiring, linking simulation performance to on-the-job predictions of competence.
