  • Mobile assessments
  • Cross-cultural measures of personality
  • Job analysis
  • Favorite I-O theories
  • Teleworking
  • Continuous listening
  • Workplace automation
  • Assessment validity
  • Millennial talent
  • Women in low gender egalitarian countries
  • Reducing interview bias … and much more

And the psychologists won’t be done until after 4pm on Saturday, April 29, when Jane Wu and Amanda Klabzuba take part in a panel discussion on what makes assessments successful.
