Seminar by Prof. Ioannis Nikolaou in Bologna University: “Digital employee selection procedures: A look in research and practice”

New recruitment and selection methods appear, although traditional or “settled” research questions still remain and attract increased attention (Ryan & Ployhart, 2014). Many of these new methods are largely affected by or merely exist due to changes in technology, which has had a major impact on employee recruitment and selection practices, although research has not followed at the same pace (Woods, Ahmed, Nikolaou, Costa & Anderson, in press). The current presentation will introduce participants to a number of new technology-oriented recruitment and selection methods, such as the digital interview, social networking websites, video-based situational judgement tests and gamification/games-based assessment (Georgiou, Gouras & Nikolaou, 2019). We will focus on the most recent research on
these topics and also explore potential avenues for future research.
