Book description

Published in hardback with dustjacket in 1993 by Routledge, 'Biodata. Biographical Indicators of Business Performance' was written by Barrie Gunter, Adrian Furnham, and Russell Drakeley. Biodata provides the most comprehensive single review to date of the history, development and application of biographical data in the selection and assessment of employees. For several decades, researchers and practitioners have been trying to relate biographical events to work-related behaviours. Yet there is no universally accepted defition of the term 'biodata', which has more often provoked questions about its objectivity, reliability and validity. Biodata is intended for managers and occupational psychologists involved in the selection and assessment of the workfoce. As well as offering helpful advice to practitioners in business and industry on the use of biographical data both in the recruitment of employees and for choosing from amongst current personnel those who should be promoted to a higher level; the book goes beyond being a simple 'how-to-do-it' text, by providing a thorough grounding of current techniques in its detailed account of the genesis and evolution of the use ofbiodata. Clearly written with examples of practical applications and tips for managers, this volume is grounded in the latest research. It will appeal to students and practitioners alike. It's firmly grounded in relevant research literature and offers a comprehensive analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of biodata in different contexts. After cognitive ability tests, the authors find that biodata measures are the best empirical predicators. Contents: List of figures, tables and abbreviations. 1. Introduction: what are biodata? 2.
