2018 ACSG Conference Information

12 - 16 March 2018 at The Hilton, Sandton, South Africa


Ute-Christine Klehe


Keynote Speaker, Prof Ute-Christine Klehe chairs the team of Work and Organisational Psychology at Justus-Liebig-University in Giessen, Germany after a career at different psychology and management departments across Germany (Philipps Universitär Marburg), Canada (University of Toronto), Switzerland (University of Zurich) and the Netherlands (University of Amsterdam). Her research addresses candidate reactions during personnel selection with a particular focus on antecedents and consequences of their self-presentation behaviour, as well as career self-management during career transitions, and typical versus maximum performance.

Ute-Christine's work on Assessment Centres focuses primarily on candidates’ self-presentation behaviour. An ongoing stream of research focuses on candidates’ conscious and deceptive faking during personnel selection, something that has up to now been widely studied for personality inventories and interviews, but has hardly been extended to the domain of Assessment Centres. She also focuses on both the antecedents and the consequences of faking during Assessment Centers.

Her research has appeared in outlets such as the Journal of Applied Psychology, Personnel Psychology, the Journal of Organizational Behavior, the Journal of Vocational Psychology, the International Journal of Selection and Assessment, Human Performance and others.


Cathy Sims

Opening Speaker, Cathy Sims is the founding member and Executive Director of the South African Graduate Employers Association (SAGEA). SAGEA represents over 330 talent managers across more than 200 organisations. Her previous experience includes HR Manager for leading international management consulting firm, Accenture (1991 to 2004) and the University of Cape Town as Head of Employer Relations/Deputy Director of Careers (2004 to 2013).

SAGEA was founded in 2004 with a small group of dedicated employers who had an interest in pursuing a build-strategy as part of their talent programmes. SAGEA has since grown to represent more than 200 organisations with the key objective to enhance the performance of each and every member. We do this by providing in-depth benchmarks of best practice across the entire graduate employment lifecycle from attraction to retention.  In addition, we provide key insights from young talent as to their hopes and dreams of what a fulfilling career looks like in South Africa. Our regular networking events and conferences allow us to share best practice and case studies highlighting new and innovative ways of extending our practice. Cathy will share with you key trends in building future talent and in-depth insight into how colleagues working in the assessment space can assist in navigating sought after talent in the future.
