Selecting Credible Assessment Tools: What to look for, what to avoid

HR assessment tools can provide valuable support for your talent management needs; however, they can also present risks if not properly selected and implemented. In this presentation, Brandon Jordan will walk us through the ins and outs of choosing credible assessment tools.

Learning Objectives include:

  • The uses of different assessments and methods and how to choose one to solve specific issues for selection, development, team cohesiveness, and succession (Retention/turnover, employee performance, performance time to proficiency, team effectiveness, etc.).
  • Considerations when choosing an assessment.
  • How to evaluate an assessment vendor.
  • Evaluating the research and science behind assessment methods and their effectiveness.
