Title: Biographical Data
Module: Assessment Types
Now something you should think about in every organization, when they're hiring, is that they will have applicants fill out some sort of an application form. It might be online. It might be a paper and pencil form. But did you realize that there is a way to take the biographical data or the biodata, from these filled out job application forms and turn it into an assessment that can actually predict job performance?
Well, I should say it is not nearly as powerful as some of the other tools I mentioned previously, but it is one additional tool that could be utilized to help improve prediction of job performance. I mean think about it. We are asking for applicants to complete these anyway so why not do the HR analytics to show that certain work experiences or skills or biographical information is predictive of success in the job because if you're able to do that, then your job application becomes a useful predictor of job performance.
Just remember to be cautious when running any analytics. You want to ensure your organization is compliant with appropriate state and federal regulations in using any data to make talent acquisition and talent management decisions.
