Abstract and Keywords

Certainly, one of the most important sets of decisions an organization makes is the decision to employ personnel. All aspects of an organization's activities are directed and enacted by the people that comprise the organization. It is also not the case that just any person's activity will optimize organizational functioning. Nearly a century of work on the use of various employment procedures has documented that there are substantial individual differences in job performance and that the use of good selection procedures results in the employment of better performing individuals and greater practical utility for organizations.

Keywords: selection decision, organizational functioning, employment procedures, job performance, selection procedures, organizational activities
