Assessment Center

I was just wondering how companies here in the US choose their employees. In Germany more and more bigger companies use an assessment center to find the right person for the jobs they offer. I think this technique was tansferred from the US to Germany, so I think it is much more spread here. However, I just read a study that the tradition interview for a job has a higher validity than an assessment center. So why do so many companies use it then? Only because it is modern? I don’t know the answer. But what I know is that I won’t start in a company which uses assessment center to choose between prospective job applicants.
