Seven HireVue research presentations selected for SIOP

HireVue to also present newly released book on the future of recruitment at annual science conference

SALT LAKE CITY, April 19, 2022HireVue, the global leader in video interviewing, assessments, and text-enabled recruiting tools today announced seven research presentations selected for the Society for Industrial Organizational Psychology’s (SIOP) annual conference.

This year’s presentations include a Top 10 Poster Award for Dr. Colin Willis and his research on the use of game-based assessments for hiring autistic job seekers. The first of its kind study, the research found autistic candidates performed as well as neurotypical applicants on gamified assessments – giving employers evidence-based validation for the use of games assessments in hiring. In partnership with the Colorado State University and Integrate Autism Employment Advisors, the team’s work was selected from over 600 paper submissions. 

“The HireVue Science Team continues to push the field of IO psychology to a place that will benefit job seekers and the companies who hire them for years to come, and I’m thrilled to see their efforts being recognized at this year’s SIOP meeting,” said Dr. Nathan Mondragon, Chief IO Psychologist at HireVue. “I’m particularly proud of the team’s research on autism and game-based assessments being recognized, as well as the release of Dr. Kiki Leutner’s book, The Future of Recruitment: The New Science of Hiring Analytics and How to Get Your Hiring Right.”
