Virtual Reality Technology: A New Tool for Personnel Selection

Virtual Reality Technology: A New Tool for Personnel Selection The purpose of this article is to introduce virtual reality technology as a potential tool for personnel selection in organizations. We describe virtual reality technology, its hardware and software requirements, and some current applications. Then we propose specific types of job knowledge, skills, abilities, and other characteristics (KSAOs) particularly suitable to being assessed using virtual reality technology. We emphasize KSAOs that hold the greatest promise in terms of yielding greater validity than more commonly used selection techniques. We hope the present article will stimulate and guide future empirical research on the potential of virtual reality technology as a personnel selection tool. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Selection and Assessment Wiley

Abstract

The purpose of this article is to introduce virtual reality technology as a potential tool for personnel selection in organizations. We describe virtual reality technology, its hardware and software requirements, and some current applications. Then we propose specific types of job knowledge, skills, abilities, and other characteristics (KSAOs) particularly suitable to being assessed using virtual reality technology. We emphasize KSAOs that hold the greatest promise in terms of yielding greater validity than more commonly used selection techniques. We hope the present article will stimulate and guide future empirical research on the potential of virtual reality technology as a personnel selection tool.
