Social Media and Selection: Ingenuity or Slippery Slope?
ACME Corporation wants to screen applicants by casually checking
out their Facebook pages or following their tweets on Twitter.
Yet, they selectively choose to do this for "younger applicants who are
most likely involved in social media outlets" only and have no clear
guidelines for gathering or evaluating their findings. One member of

MEET OUR TEAM — SPOTLIGHT
EASI·Consult's® President and CEO, David Smith,
recently visited Cape Town, South Africa to attend the International
Congress of Psychology. The conference included over 5,000 psychologists,
representing 88 countries. Archbishop Desmond Tutu delivered the commencement
speech with his typical humbleness and humor. The conference proved to be a
successful exchange of global research and ideas.
During the five-day event, one of the major display
booths was hosted by EASI·Consult's® South African partner company, JvR. JvR is the
largest Human Capital consulting firm in South Africa and has a division for the
publication and distribution of "Industrial and Organizational assessment tools"
for professional psychologists throughout Africa. JvR highlighted one of EASI·Consult's®
newest online pre-employment test — the Manufacturing Compatibility
QuestionnaireTM (MCQTM). Currently used by companies
such as Rolls Royce, MacLean Power Systems, USG Corporation and Hubbell Power Systems,
the MCQTM evaluates key factors required to be successful in entry-level
manufacturing and assembly work. The MCQTM then indicates a candidate's
likelihood of success in these type of positions. Validation studies have demonstrated
the MCQ's ability to predict a person's attitudes and abilities related toward safety,
working with teams, dependability on the job, and ability to solve problems.

Title: Designing Workplace Mentoring Programs: An Evidence-Based Approach
Authors: Tammy D. Allen, Lisa M. Finkelstein, and Mark L. Poteet
Designing Workplace Mentoring Programs presents well-thought through processes which address the structure of a high functioning mentoring program, the recruitment and training of both protégés and mentors, the matching of mentors and protégés, and the very important step of ongoing evaluation and program development. A generous number of Case Studies illustrate the points they make and the easy-to-identify Lessons Learned boxes walk us through the lessons they have drawn from real world experience. Their approach is practical, and as their sub-title indicates, it is based on the evidence of high-functioning companies and the lessons they learned in the implementation of their own mentoring programs.
