On Wednesday 28th November 2018, we held our annual New Frontiers Seminar, always a popular event, this year was no exception and very well received. The theme for our annual event was: ‘How is technology disrupting the recruitment and development process?’. A huge topic, but our speakers who were a mixture of practitioners currently navigating this space and representatives from organisations, were able to pass on their knowledge and experiences of harnessing advances in technology to improve the recruitment process.
See below for more information on speakers and topics:
A Practitioner’s View of Game-Based Assessments
Ben provided an introduction to the world of Game-based assessment (GBA), from the point of view of a practitioner navigating their way through the various options and sharing some ideas of how to make an informed choice about when and if to use them
Engineering for Equality: how behavioural and data science can make recruitment smarter, fairer and easier.
Kate spoke about her early work in the Behavioural Insights Team advising the UK government, and how that led to the creation of Applied, which seeks to use nudge and evidence-based design to reduce the bias in recruitment decisions.
Dr Kiki Leutner and Dr Gema Ruiz de Huydobro
AI Versus Traditional Assessments: accuracy, ethics and practical implications
Can AI help us create better assessments of intelligence, competencies, and personality? Research suggests algorithms can accurately detect personality traits based on observed behaviour. There is increasing evidence that video and game based assessments are accurate alternatives for traditional structured interviews and IQ tests. New assessment technologies are gaining ground in applied practice. Kiki and Gema discussed what is possible, what is ethical, and what precautions need to be taken before adapting AI based assessment solutions.
Exploring the Inter-Section between Technology and Coaching
Alexandru spoke about his work supporting leaders’ development in Vodafone, recent use-cases and experiments that explore the intersection between technology and coaching, and how the profession might advance with the use of disruptive technologies, including AI or VR/AR.
