HR Mind Games is a quick hitting, 20-30 minute hangout hosted by Kris Dunn, founder of FOT and the HR Capitalist, and sponsored by Caliper, the leading provider of Assessments for Selection, Talent Management, and Leadership Development.
In each episode of Mind Games, we’ll cover how general assessment geekiness/expertise helps HR, and Recruiting Pros make better hires as well as maximize performance once that talent is in the door!
Episode #2 – Does This Cognitive Assessment Tell Me a Candidate Is Stupid?
In our second episode of HR Mind Games, we’re going to focus on the use of cognitive tests as part of the assessment platforms. Does a low-cog score mean someone is stupid? Can a low-cog person be a high performer? How do you coach a low-cog scoring person to be successful in your organization that demands speed?
If you’ve ever run into a cognitive test as part of an employment assessment and said, “****,” this one is for you. Join us on 7/31, and we’ll break down the wide world of cognitive tests in candidate/employee assessments.
