The multi-level perspective on selection offered by Ployhart and Schneider provides an important framework for enhancing the utility of our selection procedures. By examining relationships between predictors and criteria across multiple levels of analysis, new insights into how the selection process contributes to group and organizational performance and effectiveness can be gleaned. Further, tradeoffs between using sets of predictors at different levels of analysis become evident, again highlighting the importance of moving beyond consideration of the individual level of analysis in selection. Indeed, it is argued that the traditional model should be replaced by a multi-level expanded model. The strength of this framework is evaluated and suggestions to enhance the multi-level model are offered.
