This event will be held online.
When recruiting, there are many aspects that you want to look at. One of the most important to explore in candidates is prosociality because of how it can benefit businesses. But how can you look for it?
In this session, we will be introducing you to Prosocial, an innovative new approach to recruitment assessment that focuses on understanding the potential for people to work in prosocial ways. This approach is placed in the context of changing evidence from recruitment and selection research and changing perspectives on the demands that people face in their work.
This session will also include a Q&A portion with Steve Woods, one of the creators of Prosocial and Professor of Work and Organisational Psychology and Head of the Department of People and Organisations at the University of Surrey. He will be available to answer questions on not only this assessment but psychometrics in general as well as any of his topics of study; an opportunity you will not want to miss.
