This presentation will provide an overview of best practices in designing selection systems based on the organizational psychology literature. Specifically, I will review research demonstrating the evidence of implicit bias inherent within typical hiring approaches. I will then discuss the business case for reducing these biases and improving diversity within organizations. Lastly, I will discuss effective recruitment and selection strategies for improving employee diversity and success.
- Learn how to design valid selection systems
- Learn how to evaluate bias and inequity within these systems
- Learn evidence-based strategies for increasing diversity in organizations
Isaac Sabat’s program of research broadly focuses on understanding and improving the working lives of stigmatized employees. He is particularly interested in examining strategies in which these employees can engage, such as disclosing or acknowledging their identities, to effectively remediate the workplace obstacles that they face. He has conducted various interrelated projects that examine how the effectiveness of expressing one’s identity is impacted by the extent to which stigmas are previously known, visible, or discovered by others over time. This is a novel area, given that disclosures have previously been conceptualized as a dichotomous, all-or-nothing phenomenon. This work has been published in Journal of Business and Psychology, Journal of Organizational Behavior, Journal of Vocational Behavior, and Harvard Business Review.
