Does Education Level Matter When Hiring Managers? - Dr. Michael Housman
Given the large effect that managers have on the performance of their employees, there's a logical next question - what is it that makes someone an effective or ineffective manager? Researchers at Evolv, The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and the Roman School of Management at the University of Toronto are currently exploring the psychometric traits that predict managerial sense and will soon uncover the knowledge, skills, and abilities that allow individuals to excel in this difficult role.
In this video insight, Dr. Housman talks about some of the more quantifiable aspects of a supervisor's background - education and experience - and the extent to which they predict the ability of managers to get the most out of their employees.
