Are game-based assessments the future of employment testing? In the podcast below, I talk about that question with Ben Hawkes. He’s an I/O psychologist, co-founder of BlackHawke Behavior Science, and selection assessment lead for Shell International.

This episode touches on:

  • Whether gamified assessments are true games
  • Where the risk lies. Making sure you are not buying game-assessments for the sizzle — because the steak may taste like crap
  • “Non-contextualized” games, which have a simulated environment such as outer space or under the ocean
  • Accessibility standards
