The ENESER meeting for 2021 took place in Zurich, Switzerland from August 31 to Thursday 2, 2021.
You may find the full programme of the meeting below.
The world of work is changing rapidly due to the availability of big data, the development of artificial intelligence, population migration and demographic changes, and yet these changes and their consequences for individuals, organizations, and society are poorly understood. The developments in the world of work also affect how individuals search for jobs, what kind of jobs they feel attracted to, and how they are selected for jobs. Job search, recruitment and selection have been cornerstones of work and organizational psychology for the last 100 years. Vibrant research in these fields has led to countless meta-analyses and literature reviews aiming to drive theoretical developments and best practice approaches to evidence-based management in job search, recruitment, and selection. Despite these efforts, however, it has recently been acknowledged that the fields of job search, recruitment and selection still face just as many (if not more) challenges as one hundred years ago. This is due to various reasons, among which the availability of big data, the development of artificial intelligence, population migration and demographic changes are likely key factors. The aim of the 6th small group meeting (SGM) of the European Network of Selection Researchers (ENESER) is twofold: 1) to advance our empirical and conceptual knowledge of recent developments in recruitment and selection and 2) to bridge scientist-practitioners gaps in new job search, recruitment, and selection practices. Specifically, this SGM aims to explore a number of recent developments in these areas, including:
The meeting will start on June 10, 2020 with a reception in the late afternoon. On June 11 and 12, we will have two full days of presentations and discussions of approximately 25 papers. This format will allow participants to have ample discussions about their research. There will also be a lot of opportunities for networking and building collaborative project ideas. The event will end at the latest by 6pm on June 12. Additionally, after the official end of the meeting, a public viewing event for the opening match of the European Football Championship can be attended on a voluntary basis.
The conference will be held in Zurich, Switzerland. Zurich has a unique position in Switzerland. It is the country’s largest city and home to an internationally reputed financial center as well as the focus of an economic region which acts as the motor of Switzerland. The wide variety of cultural activities and educational institutions define Zurich’s character as a diverse, open city with a passion for life. It is famous for its lakeside location and green, densely wooded chain of hills which run through the city from north to south with views to the Alps. The high standards of living, working, and accommodation are regularly confirmed in surveys of the local residents, and Zurich consistently finds itself at the top of international rankings of cities in terms of quality of life. By the way, Zurich is also the home of the FIFA World football museum. The Small Group Meeting will take place at the University of Zurich. Its central location is ideal for different accommodation, dining and entertainment options.
The conference fee is 120 CHF and 60 CHF for PhD students (please provide a copy of your student ID), which includes lunches, coffee/tea, a conference dinner, and drinks at the welcome reception. Travel and accommodation costs have to be covered by participants.
Participants are invited to submit paper abstracts (up to 1000 words excluding references; max. two additional pages of tables and figures) by January 15, 2020 to Annika Wilhelmy (email@example.com). Submissions should be structured as follows: purpose/contribution, design/methodology, results, limitations, implications, and originality/value. In the abstract, the authors should also indicate how their paper fits the scope of the SGM. Submitted abstracts will be pre-screened and selected following a blind peer-review procedure. Participants will be notified about the acceptance of their paper by March 15, 2020. Upon the abstract acceptance, all participants should pay the participation fee by March 30, 2020.
The SGM plans to yield a product available free of charge to the EAWOP members. Therefore, the organizers plan to submit a position paper for publication in EJWOP. In addition, there may be a special issue, for example in the International Journal of Selection and Assessment, which will be further discussed at the ENESER meeting.

Recruitment and selection has been one of the cornerstones of work and organizational psychology for the last 100 years (Nikolaou & Oostrom, 2015; Ployhart, Schmitt, & Tippins, 2017). The vibrant research in this field has led to different meta-analyses and literature review papers aiming to drive both, theoretical developments and best practice approach to evidence-based management in recruitment and selection. Despite these efforts, however, the field of recruitment and selection still faces a number of challenges, which have become ever more complex and difficult to address (Ployhart et al., 2017; Ryan & Ployhart, 2014). For instance, an increasingly more volatile and uncertain organizational environments and changing labour regulations have significantly shaped selection and recruitment practices. The field has also moved on from predicting job performance to addressing more pertinent issues of the modern workplaces, such as exploring the role of technology and internet in recruitment and selection, studying new selection methods and approaches and focusing on predicting other than routine task-related behaviours (Bledow & Frese, 2009; Nikolaou & Oostrom, 2015; Potocnik & Anderson, 2012; Potocnik, Anderson, & Latorre, 2015).
This special issue aims to explore a number of such recent developments in the recruitment, selection, and assessment research and the submissions to this special issue could cover, but are not restricted to the following topics:
1. Research on applicant perspective, including applicant reactions, impression management tactics, ability to identify criteria, and applicant faking behavior;
2. Research on biases in selection and how these biases affect subsequent interviewer behavior and interview outcomes;
3. Research on traditional versus technology based assessment, recruitment and selection procedures;
4. Research on job search behaviors, attraction to organizations, job choice, intentions to accept job offers;
5. Research on interviewer and recruiter’s discriminatory behaviors and techniques to reduce adverse impact;
6. Research on ethnic / gender / age differences in assessment of task, contextual and counterproductive behaviors and their effects on recruitment and selection outcomes;
7. Research on new recruitment and selection methods and new constructs;
8. Research on cross-cultural issues in recruitment and selection;
9. Research on how selection and recruitment procedures affect internal organizational processes, including employee attitudes and behavior.
We invite original empirical and literature review papers that represent novel and significant efforts to address recent developments in recruitment and selection. Empirical papers that rely exclusively on self-reported cross-sectional data will be desk rejected. Furthermore, manuscripts using only student samples need to have clear implications for practice. Review papers have to be based on a systematic literature review and/or meta-analytic methods.
Manuscripts should be submitted by June 1st, 2019. We aim to complete the first round of reviewing by September 1, 2019. The projected date of publication of the special issue is the first half of 2021.
Papers should be submitted through the journal’s online submissions website via https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/pewo, identifying the paper as a submission for this Special Issue.
Further information on EJWOP manuscript requirements is available on the journal’s website.

Conference Theme and Scope
Recruitment and selection has been one of the cornerstones of work and organizational psychology for the last 100 years. The vibrant research in this field has led to countless meta-analyses and literature review pieces aiming to drive theoretical developments and best practice approach to evidence based management in recruitment and selection. Despite these efforts, however, it has recently been acknowledged that the field of recruitment and selection still faces just as many (if not more) challenges as one century ago. These have become ever more complex and difficult to predict. This is due to various reasons, including key aspects such as technological developments, increasingly more volatile and uncertain organizational environments and changing labour regulations. The aim of the 5th small group meeting of the European Network of Selection Researchers (ENESER), organized under the auspices of EAWOP, is twofold: 1) to advance our empirical and conceptual knowledge into recent developments in recruitment and selection and 2) to bridge scientist-practitioners gaps in new recruitment and selection practices.

Format of the meeting
The meeting will start on the 27th of June, 2018 with registration between 4-5pm, followed by the late afternoon welcome address and reception. On the 28th and 29th of June we will have two full days of presentations and discussions of approximately 25 papers. Such small format will allow the participants to have ample discussions about their research. There will also be a lot of opportunities for networking and building collaborative project ideas. The event will end by 6pm on the 29th of June.
The conference will be held in Edinburgh, Scotland. With its stunning Georgian and Victorian architecture, winding medieval streets, and spectacular natural scenery, it is easy to see why Edinburgh has been listed as a World Heritage Site. With a vibrant cultural scene, varied nightlife and countless events and festivals that run throughout the year, it is understandable why Edinburgh has consistently been named as one of the best places to live and work in the UK. Situated on the shores of the Firth of Forth and set on seven hills, the city of Edinburgh has a long and fascinating history with ancient buildings and landmarks – a royal palace, a cliff-top castle and an extinct volcano. The city has a modern dynamism juxtaposed with historical cobbled streets and is home to four universities, the famous Edinburgh Festival and Edinburgh Fringe, world class galleries and concert halls, tranquil parks and busy shopping streets.
The Small Group Meeting will take place at the University of Edinburgh Business School. Its central location is ideal for different accommodation, dining and entertainment options.
The conference fee is €100 euro (€50 for PhD students), which includes lunches, coffee/tea, a conference dinner, and drinks at the welcome reception. Travel and accommodation costs have to be covered by participants.
