Abstract

Implicit measurement using latencies is proposed as a complement to conventional measurement to assess organizational constructs (e.g., job satisfaction), to assist in personnel decisions (e.g., selection), and to assess outcomes (e.g., diversity training). Latency-based measurements (i.e., the Implicit Association Test) use categorization tasks to measure attitudes, stereotypes, and self-concepts. Its routine inclusion in organizational research can address measurement limitations, enrich theoretical understanding of organizational phenomena, and inform practice by better predicting behavior.
