Perfect Hiring and Pre-Hire Assessments: A Guide for an Exemplary and Unbiased Process

Sorry, this webinar has ended.

Knowing who to hire has been a dilemma plaguing decision makers since time immemorial. While pre-hire assessments should be job-related (valid) and fair (unbiased), how can HR and TA leaders operationalize job analysis and assessments to determine and measure the skills, abilities, and traits necessary for on-the-job success?

Join us for a free webinar on Wednesday, December 8, at 2pm ET as Dr. Fred Rafilson, Chief I/O Psychologist at Talview, Dr. Josh Allen, Director of Global Selection and Assessment Strategy at Walmart, and David Nason, Co-Founder at HireBrain, discuss best practices concerning assessments.

Important areas of discussion will include:

  • Conducting job analysis for target roles
  • Ensuring test validity in relation to the EEOC, especially in the areas of content, construct, and criterion-related validity evidence
  • Operationalizing test fairness and mitigating adverse impact by analyzing passing rates of protected classes
