Broadly speaking, biographical measures are one of the two types of measures with which potential job applicants are typically assessed, the other being psychometric assessments. Given that these two types of measures are used so prominently in the field of employee selection, it is surprising that very few researchers have investigated how they are related in theory, and how they should be integrated in practice. In this presentation, James Meaden will present a framework which provides a theoretical understanding of the relationship between biographical experiences and psychological constructs, as well as how these two types of measures can be used together in practice. The result is a unified selection model that can be used to maximize the prediction of two key employee outcomes. Data from five organizations will be presented that support the framework.
