The Digital Transformation Of Assessment

| E:251

The changing nature of assessment is something we have covered from several different angles on this show before with contributions from both practitioners and consultants. However, to date, we haven't actually heard the vendor point of view in all of this. So with that in mind, my guest this week is Sam Whiteman, Head of Product Strategy at SHL.

In the interview, we discuss:

• How technology has evolved assessment over time

• Using AI as a capability to drive specific outcomes

• How AI can be used to find hidden gems in the candidate pool

• The evolution of video interviewing

• Giving candidates more value by building an interactive assessment experience

• The importance of people and machines working together to be better

• The problem of algorithmic bias and how to avoid it

• The future of assessment
