The world of work is constantly changing, and it can be argued that the file of psychometric assessments in South Africa has not kept up with the change. As the world of work evolves, recruitment, selection, and development trends are changing and, as a result, the tools used in these processes are being revised. As practitioners in the field, there is a need to understand the value of these changes and how to apply professional judgement so as to leverage off the benefit whilst also adhering to professional and ethical guidelines.
The workshop will outline the history and journey of psychometric assessments in South Africa, highlighting the context in which we operate and the purpose and uses of psychometric assessments. Furthermore, the session will provide an overview of the current technological advances in the field and how South African practitioners can harness these developments, but simultaneously operate in a legal and ethical way.
