Does your hiring process consist of proven practices or just a hodgepodge of activities that get into gear when someone says, "I need more people" or "Sally has left and we need someone to take her place NOW?"
The effectiveness of the recruitment process impacts the effectiveness of the organization.
A new hire that does not fit the position will be difficult to develop, will perform poorly and more likely leave resulting in the need to repeat the process. Only when interviewing is approached as a specific process with definable steps and measurable results can it be managed to ensure the hiring of quality people.
Smart recruitments more than posting requisitions, screening, talking with the candidates, checking references. It is a series of specific interviewing principles and techniques that can bring in top talent rather than lead to poor hires.
The topics to be covered are:

Have you ever hired someone who did not live up to expectations? Are your managers selecting too many round pegs to fit into square holes?
Hiring the wrong person for the job is like asking a rabbit to swim. Rabbits may swim for a short stint, but they will struggle and eventually sink. That is exactly what happens when we hire people for positions that are not good fits. They will eat up your time and energy and weaken an entire team. It is a lot easier to hire rabbits to run and fish to swim.
The interview process should determine if there is a match between the individual and the position. Furthermore, a good process allows you to understand the applicant's behavior, values, motivations, and qualifications. Time and time again we have seen people hired for sales jobs that don't like calling people, customer service people whom can't look into your eyes and say, "Hello."
In this webinar you will learn the essentials of smart interviewing: hiring the right people, at the right time, with the right skills, for the right position.
