Description
According to Robert Guion (1998, Assessment, Measurement, and Prediction for Personnel Decisions), “The cumulative effects in wise hiring decisions can result in substantial increases in average performance levels and productivity. Consequences of unwise decisions can range from inconvenience to disaster.” So where do employers begin in the quest for pinpointing the ideal match for furthering their company vision while juggling the impossible task of whittling down an applicant pool dense with unqualified candidates who are frantically searching for a job in these delicate economic times? Ryan Kohler will walk each attendee through the process of attracting the right skilled professional for each position from start to finish. He’ll also detail the value in executing the process for drawing the “right” contenders for each position prior to the actual interview preventing both wasted employer time and unnecessary spending on employee turnover. Lastly, Ryan will illustrate the potential impact of distinguishing the behavioral and skill patterns of your top employees.

When this one-hour session concludes, HR professionals will:

1.       Grasp the importance of composing a job description that will capture the attention of job seekers.
2.       Recognize the advantages of acquiring a large applicant pool in the beginning phases of the recruiting process versus an overly specific job description driving away potentially suitable applicants.
3.       Understand the benefit of screening questions in the search for a future employee that will contribute to the overall vision of your company.
4.       Realize the significance of how particular behavioral traits impact employee performance and how the skills he/she possess will profit the company in addition to other employees’ achievements.
