Benchmark Studies (criterion-related validation research)

The idea behind this type of study is creating ideal applicant‘s profile on a basis of statistical analysis of the data of best employees and least successful ones on a given job position.

Steps of the project:

  • Identify a large sample of current incumbents
  • Administer the assessments to the incumbent sample
  • Collect performance data on these individuals
  • Examine the relationship between incumbent assessment results and job performance
  • Determine which data from the psychological test (scales) best predict the job performance.

The benchmark studies are most suitable for organizations with:

  • A large number of incumbents in a specific job or job family
  • A high-volume candidate selection needs
  • A well-defined performance appraisal.


  • Establish that the assessments predict performance in the organization's unique environment
  • Demonstrating ROI of the selection process       
  • Demonstrated relationship between the selection method and the level of performance.
