Innovations, research summaries, and case studies of the most cutting-edge topics in talent assessment

A book sits on a table, next to a green plant. The title of the book is Talent Assessment.

The field of workplace assessment is at a critical stage in its evolution. The intersection of new technologies, globalization, and market shifts among assessment providers has created dramatic opportunities for the field along with some significant challenges. Artificial intelligence (AI) and other technological advances have altered what is possible in talent acquisition. As a new generation of technology-driven applications comes of age, a host of new issues and opportunities have emerged that require assessment professionals to respond with an informed perspective that balances return-on-investment priorities with appropriate professional and scientific rigor.

In response to this context, this volume focuses on trends and innovations in talent assessment, framing practical solutions for managing the disruption in assessment while incorporating new insights and technologies into organizational assessment programs. Featuring chapters from consultants and technologists pushing the edges of what’s possible with new tools, to professionals putting them into practice, and attorneys who focus on minimizing risk, this volume examines these disruptive forces from all sides. The chapters are grouped into four sections that cover (1) advances in the foundational science of assessment, (2) technology-related innovations, (3) updates to regulations, principles, and standards, and (4) assessment for development. Including a variety of case studies that describe talent assessment in action and how organizations of varying sizes develop and implement assessment programs, this book is ideal for practitioners and academics in the field.
