May 25, 2022 – Glendale, CA – Talent assessments are on the rise. Based on insight from CHROs across the globe, hiring and talent assessments are expected to return to pre-pandemic levels within the next 12 months.
Other key trends facing the future of assessment were presented by experts at Talogy, a Lifelong Learner Holdings (LLH) Business, at the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) 2022 Annual Conference in April.
With the shift to remote and hybrid workforces, leaders will face new challenges. Highlighted future trends in talent assessment include:
- Innovations in feedback systems should include new technology advancements, leverage natural language processing, and explore virtual environments. It continues to be critical that feedback systems are robust to cultural differences when implementing globally.
- DEI and assessment fairness are different topics. Implementing a predictive, reliable, and fair assessment may not help organizations reach DEI goals if they are not recruiting diversity and measuring competencies related to fit in an inclusive culture.
- New guidelines for technology-based assessments will benefit a wide range of stakeholders in the assessment industry by helping to ensure that technology-based assessments are predictive, reliable, and fair. Also, new guidelines should address bias, accessibility, and test security.
- Multi-dimensional personality scales can be significantly shortened while maintaining reliability and validity, based on research using a combination of machine learning and content validity evidence.
- Turnover and retention prediction continue to headline organizations’ priorities. Utilizing machine learning, Talogy’s scientists have made advancements to produce powerful turnover indices.
