Overview

'No doubt HRM faculty should read this text. ...there is undoubtedly erudition and insight contained within the pages. [of this book]' - Gerald Vinten, Southampton Business School, British Academy of Management News

This comprehensive, state-of-the-art look at the field of personnel selection emphasizes the role of theory in personnel selection research, an area of organizational science that is often characterized as lacking theoretical bases. Traditional topics, such as job analysis, performance measurement, the measurement of individual difference characteristics, the design of validation research and the evaluation of validation data, are covered.
