Hiring the Best: Interviewing for Top Talent FMWPadmin
Hiring is the most important decision most managers make, but interviewing and selecting candidates are often neglected skills. In these competitive times no one has the luxury of making a bad hiring decision. Hiring the right candidates can put your company ahead of the competition, reduce the high cost of turnover and discrimination claims. In order to be successful, managers must develop staffing strategies that will support them in selecting top talent and avoid the wrong candidates while minimizing legal risk. This stand-alone program is most powerful when offered after managers have attended Managing Within the Law.
Who should attend: Executives, managers, supervisors, and leads who participate in the interviewing and hiring process.
Participants of this workshop will learn:
The benefits of partnering with HR/Staffing teams
The power of job descriptions and how to use them to the manager’s advantage
The proper way to prepare for an interview
How to ask effective and legal questions
How to best use peer interviews
Why behavior based questions work and how to use them for any job-related competency, including “soft skills”
Screening resumes without creating legal risk
Types of documentation that should be created before, during, and after a job interview
