Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Hamburg, Germany - Mar 20, 2018 - 12 experts from Aon’s Assessment Solutions group will participate in 17 different symposia, debates, panel discussions and poster sessions at the SIOP 2018 Conference (19-21 April, Chicago).
The 33rd annual conference of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology will highlight the latest developments in psychological research, theory and practice. The three-day event will include symposia, roundtables, panel discussions, poster sessions, debates and master tutorials.
In a multi-presenter symposium session entitled ‘Taking simulations mobile: the challenges, best practice and what’s next?’ (Saturday 21 April, 1.30pm, Sheraton 1), Richard Justenhoven from cut-e will be joined by Eleni Lobene of Aon Hewitt, Amie Lawrence of Select International and Lei Qin from Shaker. Each expert will present individually before taking part in a combined, interactive panel discussion, chaired by Tara McClure Johnson of Aon Hewitt and Charles Handler from Rocket-Hire.
“The use of simulations dates back to the 1940s when the US military began creating them for personnel selection,” explained Richard Justenhoven of cut-e, which is part of Aon’s Assessment Solutions. “Since then, simulations have proved to be a robust assessment methodology and innovations in technology have enabled engaging, media-rich simulations. When you combine this with the increasing use of mobile devices in the selection process, it creates an opportunity for innovative and effective assessment. That’s why mobile assessment simulation is one of 2018’s top three topics in the I/O world. This session will explain how shorter, more immersive mobile assessments – with media-rich, realistic simulations – can engage top talent and attract a more diverse candidate pool. The session will showcase new thinking in this area, as well as highlighting what the future holds. Each panellist will share how their organisation approaches mobile simulations and we’ll then discuss the key learning points. We all have differing perspectives on this issue so this promises to be a lively and interesting discussion and debate.”
At SIOP 2018, nine other experts from Aon’s Assessment Solutions – Seymour Adler; Anthony Boyce; John Capman; Jennifer Cavanaugh; Rachel Dreibelbis; Sarah Foster; Nicholas Martin; Brian Ruggeberg and Evan Theys – will participate in 16 other symposia, debates, panel discussions and poster sessions. These sessions will cover a broad range of issues including: the future of work; the future of testing; the ethics of modern assessments; adverse impact; critical experiences for internships; making data count; innovations in leadership assessment; norms and personality; game-based assessment; mobile cognitive testing; competency modelling; behavioural data and a person-centred approach to personality assessment.
The SIOP 2018 Conference will be held at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Chicago, Illinois, on 19-21 April. Register online at www.siop.org/conferences/18con
