Employment Technologies - the inventor and pioneer of employment simulations – announced today that Mary Ann Bucklan, Director of Research, will be part of a panel presenting important new research at the 30th Annual Conference of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology.
Held at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown on April 23-25th in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the conference features innovative speakers, engaging professional development sessions, and opportunities to network with Industrial-Organizational Psychologists from across the globe. Bucklan will be participating on the panel discussion titled, Today and Tomorrow: Applicant Reactions in Global and Modern Contexts, held on Saturday, April 25th at 8:30am in the Grand K room.
Bucklan, and co-researcher Kristin Buechel, Innovation and Research Specialist, studied the role of language and location with regard to candidate reactions and performance in a multimedia, simulation-based assessment. The researchers found positive, overall reactions to the simulation. While they did not find differences in candidate reactions as a function of native language, they did find performance differences. This research highlights the importance of considering language proficiency when administering assessment and selection tools across global locations.
“It is a privilege to have a member of our team present this important research to Industrial-Organizational Psychologists from around the world,” explains Employment Technologies Founder and President, Joseph Sefcik, Jr. “These findings could significantly impact the hiring protocols of companies worldwide.”
