In this chapter I propose a vision for the field of personnel selection: ensuring sustainable organizational effectiveness through the acquisition of human capital. This vision is used to organize and review historical approaches to selection, critique contemporary approaches, and identify future research needs. It is argued that while there is a rich history of research on personnel selection practices and techniques, this research falls short of achieving the vision. Rather, scholars will need to take a broader, and frequently more contextualized, orientation if they are to show the organizational benefits of selection procedures.
