While companies are looking to hire the most qualified candidate to fill their positions, they often have a difficult time identifying the right candidate for the job using traditional hiring practices. However, one major barrier is that companies may over-rely on traditional hiring methods such as interviews that may not be the best way to select the most qualified candidates. This is because employers may overly-rely on their experience and intuition, even though they are often led astray. The current project seeks to provide a systematic literature review to examine whether work done in cognitive and behavioural science can address these issues and improve the hiring process.
