Book Cover
The Blackwell Handbook of Personnel Selection

The Blackwell Handbook of Personnel Selection provides a state-of-the-art review of theory, research, and professional practice in the field of selection and assessment.

The volume contains five sections covering: activities that precede selection; tools of selection; decisions and their contexts; criterion measures; and emerging trends and assessment for change. Each section includes contributions from internationally eminent authors in the field. The contributions clarify concepts, describe models and theories, summarize evidence from empirical research, and discuss the practical implications of research evidence and trends. Attention is drawn to the ways in which academic and practitioner perspectives complement one another and, at times, conflict as highlighted by trends toward a science-practice divide.

The Handbook will be a valuable resource for students, researchers and faculty in psychology and related fields, and for professionals working in human resources who want to maintain and enhance a high level of selection practice.
