People Assessment in Industry (PAI) was originally established to proactively engage various stakeholders interested in psychological assessment in South African industry.

Functioning as an interest group of the Society for Industrial & Organisational Psychology in South Africa (SIOPSA), the purpose of PAI is to ensure testing exists in the South African context as a value adding and ethical practice.

PAI’s activities include promoting fair assessments in the workplace. The group has given input to government on the original wording on psychometric assessment found in the Employment Equity Act (1998), and has actively provided input to both the Health Professions Council of South Africa (on topics related to the profession of psychology and the use of assessments in South Africa) and the Department of Labour (in terms of the Employment Equity Amendment Bill).

We are actively engaged in educating everyone about the potential benefits of sound psychological assessment in the industrial context.
We are conducting a research to understand and explore the assessment testing tools currently being used in industry for recruitment, development and talent management purposes. This includes understanding which of the tests being used are registered with the HPCSA and which are not. Furthermore, the survey also aims to understand how the current assessment community views relevant legislation as well as other related areas.
