Effective selection processes can greatly enhance the quality and productivity of an organization’s workforce(Pulakos, 2005). Unfortunately, leadership in many organizations underestimates the importance of formal assessments and the safeguards they provide. Furthermore, they have misperceptions regarding their practical use and benefits such as determining the basis of organizational factors like absenteeism and employee turnover rates. Alternate validation strategies provide practical options to more traditional strategies while offering practices that meet regulatory requirements (McPhail, 2007). Providing alternatives provides greater flexibility in promoting tailored selection practices that still meet legal and professional standards.
For this Discussion, select two alternate validation methods different from those presented in Week 3.(method used was: Rather, the assessment needs to identify whether the candidate shares the same values as those of the organization. As such, an effective selection process needs to identify candidates who will adapt to the organisation’s culture and can change accordingly to fit the current situation.)
Post by Day 3 descriptions of the two alternate validation methods you selected. Then, explain when each might be appropriate in employee selection. Finally, describe two organizational factors and explain how they may influence your decision to use the validation methods selected. Provide concrete examples and citations from the Learning Resources and current literature to support your post.
