In January, the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) released recommendations for artificial intelligence-based assessments.
Considerations and Recommendations for the Validation and Use of AI-Based Assessments for Employee Selection can now be found on the SIOP website. This document supplements SIOP’s statement on the use of AI for hiring, which was created by the SIOP Task Force on AI-Based Personnel Assessment and Prediction in spring 2022.
“There has been a growing concern about the use of AI in employment decision making, and both federal and state governments are enacting laws to address many of these concerns,” said Task Force Chair Chris Nye. “Many SIOP members have expertise in areas related to employee selection, assessment, and the use of artificial intelligence in the workplace. Therefore, we wanted to leverage this expertise to provide additional guidance, backed by scientific research, on how AI-based assessments can be used effectively and legally in employee selection contexts.”
