Pittsburgh-based Select International, a global provider of human resource assessment solutions, will flex its research muscle by presenting several panel discussions and research papers at the 26th annual conference of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP), held this April 14-16 in Chicago.

Members of Select International’s R&D team will host panel discussions and conduct poster presentations spotlighting the company’s industry-leading research on various hiring issues; including detecting applicant falsification, multimedia simulations, organizational feedback and content validity.

“Ongoing research is something we strongly encourage at Select International,” said Dr. Matthew O’Connell, Executive Vice President and Co-Founder. “We’re proud to have many of the country’s top researchers on our team, and it’s rewarding to have SIOP recognize their accomplishments.”
