Technology-enabled employee selection: Tweaking the system for better person-environment fit

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review

Organizations increasingly use information and communication technologies to facilitate their employee selection process. The practice is commonly referred to as e-selection. Recent research has shown that e-selection can significantly improve the efficiency of assessment and selection. However, organizations also strive to hire the best possible candidates and seek to improve effectiveness of their selection process and achieve better person–environment (PE) fit. The presented research reviews existing literature on PE fit and e-selection and puts forward a heuristic model of technology-facilitated selection process that seeks to maximize the PE fit from the organization’s perspective.
