Situational Judgement Tests: Why they matter and how to get them right
Situational Judgement Tests (SJT) are increasingly important and effective tools for selecting high-quality candidates from a diverse range of backgrounds. In this seminar, James Meachin, Head of Assessment at Pearn Kandola draws upon the latest research and his own experience to explain why they are such a powerful selection tool, how to develop highly effective SJTs and avoid the common pitfalls associated with their use.
Presented by James Meachin.

Live Unconscious Bias reviews
A live unconscious bias review is one of the key services offered by Pearn Kandola in which our psychologists join internal client decision-making meetings to observe and identify bias as it happens live in the decision-making process. In this seminar, we will review our approach to these live reviews, and share some of our key findings, including the most common forms of bias demonstrated in recruitment, performance review and moderation meetings.
Presented by Nic Hammarling.

Finding future leaders: Pearn Kandola’s exclusive research into leadership potential
We are constantly building our understanding of what we mean by ‘potential’ and the value of understanding and identifying potential when managing talent populations. In this seminar, Stuart Duff shares the outcomes from three joint research studies undertaken by Pearn Kandola and the Institute of Work Psychology at Sheffield University that looked at:
• How managers define potential and reward potential
• The factors that predict future potential, and
• The relationship between personal traits and leadership success.
Presented by Stuart Duff.

If you book a seat at one of them but subsequently are unable to attend, we ask that you inform us as soon as possible so we can reallocate your place.
