newly formed life insurance sales company H u m a n i t i e s
For this discussion, assume the role of a human resources manager tasked with hiring several employees for a newly formed life insurance sales company. Your job is to interview and hire an accountant and a district manager who will be responsible for supervising 25 employees. Unfortunately, the company has limited financial resources, so you are only able to use one measure of personality as part of your interview process. In your discussion post, describe the personality measure you selected and thoroughly explain the rationale for your choice. Identify relevant reliability and validity information about the personality measure you selected and specify how the reliability and validity information justifies using the instrument for hiring for each of the above positions. In addition to the required reading, research a minimum of one peer-reviewed.
Note: It is common for there to be a delay between the time a test publisher updates a test and the time the textbook and other authors can update their information about the new version of the test. Be sure to do online research to make sure you are recommending the most current version of the test.
Prior to beginning work on this discussion, view the video Betting on the Future, (Links to an external site.) read the required articles by Luxon, Pruitt & Osenbach (2014) and Novotney (Links to an external site.) (2011), and review the required websites. In addition, research a minimum of one peer-reviewed article which reports research findings on the reliability or validity of mental health testing via telehealth. Do note that it is customary to include any of the following remote methods under the framework of “telehealth”: telephone, video conferencing, interactive websites, email, or online chat. For this discussion, you will take on the role of a mental health professional in private practice who is considering providing remote psychological testing as a part of their telehealth assessment services. You are researching the types of services you could provide in order to present your ideas to one of the world’s leading healthcare investors introduced in this week’s assigned video. In your initial post, begin with a paragraph briefly summarizing the types of mental health assessments which can be provided remotely. Do not discuss delivery methods such as telephone, video conferencing, interactive websites, email, or online chat. Analyze your peer-reviewed journal research article(s) and explain the types of testing and assessments that are best suited for remote/telehealth delivery. Also, be sure you are discussing psychological assessment and testing services only. Do not discuss therapies or treatment services. Evaluate the ethical issues involved in providing psychological assessment and testing services remotely via telehealth methods. Distinguish any specific types of psychological testing that should not be administered remotely and explain your rationale.
