The HR Risk Management Stanadard developed by SABPP encourages HR Managers to use psychological assessment to mitigate HR risks pertaining to selection and competence development of staff. Also, the new South African Leadership Standard states that all leaders should be assessed. Thus, the SABPP alliance with both the Society for Industrial and Organisational Psychology and the Assessment Centre Study Group is intended to promote the professional practice of psychological assessment.


HR departments are confronted with consultants/organisations who want them to use various psychological instruments to improve selection and development decisions. In some cases, the HR department does have an in-house psychometrist or psychologist who can provide guidance as to the ethical and legal use of such instruments. In those instances where in-house counsel is not available, it is necessary for the HR department to capacitate itself to become informed users of psychological assessments in organisations.


By attending the above presentation, you will have a better understanding of the following:


·The legal requirements of using psychological assessments and other forms of assessments

·The use of mobile devices and selection

·The use of social media and selection

·Guidelines for the use of personnel selection procedures
