Survey: Predicting the predictive validity of managerial selection methods

 

A research team at the University of Amsterdam Business School, consisting of Dr. Stefan T. Mol, Peter van der Linden and Nihan Kutahnecioglu, conducted a research on managerial personnel selection methods in European organizations in which the CyHRMA has participated in 2012.

This research investigated the following: when it comes to deciding which methods to use for managerial personnel selection, the selection decision-makers in organizations rely on selection methods other than those that would be prescribed by academics. The project investigated the real-world issues (for example budgetary limitations, organizational politics, local insight) that may form reasons for selection method used in organizations.

The outcome of the research is available here.
