2.Choose one job performance predictor discussed in Chapter 9 , and analyze its practical significance.
Performance predictors play a vital role in the selection process in regards to applicants. It is imperative that an organization search for performance predictors to find the most qualified applicant. There are different ways to collect these performance predictors. Per our textbook, it states generally speaking, four types of information are solicited through reference checks: (a) employment and educational background data, (b) appraisal of an applicant’s character and personality, (c) estimates of an applicant’s job performance capabilities, and (d) willingness of the reference to rehire an applicant (Gatewood, Field, Barrick, 2008). Viewing the applicants past is a great predictor of the potential hire’s future work performance. If the applicant has a resume with prior supervision with no derogatory remarks, the organization can assume the same work ethics and job performance will continue at the organization.
