A formula for identifying ‘high probability’ hires
The hiring process can be uncomfortable. Managers often lack the time and energy to devote to the process, or even the tools and training to help them interview and select the best new hires. Don’t let your hiring process be a hit-or-miss exercise. Join us for an exciting four-hour hiring workshop full of fresh approaches and customized questions that will help you master the talent acquisition process once and for all!
Plan to assess the talent acquisition preparation process, including techniques from both sides of the recruitment desk—HR recruiters as well as headhunters—to shortcut the system and win successful candidates. Learn how to employ a simple and respectful approach to help hiring managers show their best selves and hold honest, transparent, and candid discussions, allowing candidates to fall in love with your company—even from the very first meeting.
Learn how to position salary offers in light of today’s pay transparency laws, how to deal with overqualified candidates who just want to “get their foot in the door,” and what to do when certain “red flag” responses give you second thoughts about going through with the hire.
