Employment Technologies Corporation forecasts key HR trends for 2009. Company president and CEO Joseph Sefcik outlines five significant changes facing organizations today and explains how simulation-based employment testing is helping companies gain a competitive advantage.

"In the new virtual world of work, hiring the right people is the most critical step for ensuring success throughout the organization," states Mr. Sefcik, "and simulation gives employers a very real edge in hiring top talent."

"The strength of simulation-based assessments is that the virtual experience of simulation looks and feels real without the potentially devastating consequences of actual mistakes or failure in the real world," Sefcik explains. "In a matter of minutes, a simulation can provide a multitude of circumstances and unique challenges that could take weeks or months for an employee to experience in the real world."

Featured in the Forecast 2009 issue of Human Resource Executive, Employment Technologies provides an important glimpse of what's on the horizon in the field of HR, including:

-Need for greater flexibility in HR processes in response to changing demographics, technology, labor markets, and global marketplace.
-Migration from traditional "bricks and mortar" business operations to a new remote/virtual world of work.
-Renewed focus on hiring and training high-performing employees with the skills to contribute to the overall success of the organization.
-Advances in assessment technology that more accurately predict successful performance.
-Expanding use of simulation for hiring, training, diagnostics, and employee development.

As the thought leader and pioneer of employment simulation technology, Employment Technologies has partnered with organizations worldwide to optimize their selection processes and improve the accuracy of their hiring decisions. "Consistently, we have seen the phenomenal results of simulation," said Sefcik.
