Why Smart Managers Hire the Wrong People

Hiring the Wrong EmployeeIf you hire a turkey, you can train and motivate that turkey. But in the end, you'll just have a trained, motivated turkey … not an eagle.

In this webinar, Mel Kleiman, the leading authority on hiring in North America, will provide you with an arsenal of easy-to-implement tools, tips and techniques to recruit, interview, hire and retain the top talent.

Hiring is your most important duty to the organization. Think of it this way: If a new employee is better than half of your existing staff, your organization just got better. If not, it just got worse.

If you have lots of "C players" on staff, it means your system is designed to hire C players.

On January 22, tap into the wisdom of Mel Kleiman, the leading authority on recruiting, selection and retention (and an engaging and fun speaker). Don't hire another employee until you know what you're doing wrong … and how to do it right!
