Leading practitioners in the field of psychological assessment approach the topic of psychological assessment in business from a variety of perspectives in this handbook, which is designed to acquaint human resource executives with the benefits of this type of employee screening. Human resource consultants review the elements of psychological testing, psychologists outline the testing and evaluative process, and executives representing a variety of businesses illustrate its effectiveness in case examples. This approach demonstrates that the goal of psychological assessment, successfully matching a prospective employee to a particular job, can be achieved by using many different formats.

The text is careful to emphasize the need for trained psychologists to administer the assessment procedures and evaluate the results. Managers at all levels are then advised how best to utilize these results to minimize employee turnover. A typical assessment profile, including the written report, illustrates the nature of this valuable tool, and some of the oldest consulting firms in the country--as well as companies which currently use psychological assessments--describe its cost-efficiency in depth. End of chapter bibliographies provide access to further examination of the process and its applications, and the work concludes with a look to the requirements of tomorroW's job market and how psychological assessment can help meet those needs.
