Thursday 23rd September 2021
Speakers: Oliver Anderson, BSc (Hons) Statistics, MSc Biometry, MSc HRM, MCIPD, Chief Executive Officer, 10x Psychology and Dr Nigel Guenole, PhD, CPsychol, AFBPsS, Director of Research from the Institute of Management, Goldsmiths, University of London and Director of Behavioural and Data Science at Podium,
This seminar covered related HR and Psychological themes, starting with Oliver Anderson, in our morning session, discussing HR Automation or Augmentation and Who Benefits? He identified that those companies who use data driven people intelligence will have a significant advantage over their competitors. We then moved onto a lively discussion about AI Integration into the Recruitment Process, which our audience of both HR and Psychometric practitioners found a great deal to talk about! Having thought about the use of AI it was then very relevant to hear from Dr Nigel Guenole’s recent research into Assessment Practices in Europe, which was a fascinating look at what assessments practitioners actually use, in particular the use of advanced technology and what they think are used most widely. This also produced a number of questions and debate. A request for a further seminar on AI integration into assessment was made and will be followed up on, further details and a full review of this seminar available soon.

HR Automation or Augmentation and Who benefits?
Oliver is a leading Human Resources professional with a broad base of analytics, people and change management experience across the private and public sectors. A triple graduate, Oliver’s high-end numerical skills, award winning solutions and private sector experience fuelled his rapid advancement through sequential operational leadership roles and into the highest levels of HR Management.
The question for businesses on how to increase productivity whilst still maintaining engagement in the context of ‘overwhelm’ was one to be puzzled over even before the Covid pandemic added more layers of complexity. How do we do more with less? How do we innovate, and fast, in response to the new environment? How do we motivate dispersed and changed teams? Technology has very quickly plugged the gaps to meet the challenges we’ve faced of conducting business across multiple contexts and there will be more changes to come. Oliver discussed how early adopters of data-driven people intelligence have significant advantage over their competitors. He also shared his thinking on how fast or self-paced motivation, engagement and development in the name of productivity will be possible and highly effective via technology.

Nigel, in collaboration with Peter Saville founder and Chairman of 10x Psychology and a team of researchers, has recently produced a paper on the results of the survey Technology and Measurement around the Globe (TMAG): A European Perspective. We were very fortunate to be able to hear the results of this survey, prior to publication, from the TMAG survey, which aimed to measure assessment practices in Europe. The results were based on responses to the use of nine assessment areas: Questionnaires; Assessment and Development Centres; Interviews, Games Based Assessments, Situational Judgement, Digital Footprints, Internet of Things, Text Parsing and Chatbots. Our audience were keen to find out about the use of the more advanced assessment technology: how they are used and to what extent.
