Candidate Selection: What Works and Why We Ignore It.

On April 17, 2017, in Editorial Advisory Board, HRExaminer, Tom Janz, by Tom Janz
“Borrowing from Ben Franklin, President Barack Obama was quoted as saying, “If you think the cost of education is too high, you need to consider the cost of ignorance in the 21st century.” When it comes to selection, it’s even better. Doing it right often actually costs less, given you don’t ignore all the wasted labor and outlay costs of resume sorts, reference calls, screening interviews, science-free testing, and excessive final decision site visits.” -Tom Janz

We introduce Tom Janz as a member of our Editorial Advisory Board with his article, John, You Ignorant #$X!&. Tom is a leading thinker in I/O psychology and predictive analytics. Tom takes John Sumser to task for the opinions John laid out in “Predictive What?” a couple of weeks ago. Above all, HRExaminer’s utility as an industry analyst firm comes from the diversity of opinion we deliver. We’d rather that our deliverables make you think more and be certain less. Read, John, You Ignorant #$X!&.

Critical thinking depends on not drinking a steady flow of ‘your own champagne’ (or drinking your own bathwater, or eating your own dog food). It depends on being willing to examine your own assumptions. John Sumser has, New Rules For HR, Old Rules For Politics.

“John: I’m right there with you when it comes to lamenting low levels of prediction power being brought to bear on hiring the best people from among those who want the job. But let’s get clear about the difference between what we know and what we do. We know a lot more about how to predict performance value than your column asserts with a whine, but little evidence.” Tom Janz
