In today’s talent rich employment market, recruiting professionals are finding there is great opportunity to improve quality of hire. The challenge is identifying which candidates are truly the best and which ones look good on paper but don’t really have the track record of success that will lead superior results in your organization.
Pre-employment testing and reference checking both provide contrast in employment selection. These tools have allowed for greater insight into a candidate’s fit to the job and the culture and have reliably proven substantial ROI. On the flip side, traditional phone based reference checking has proven to be old-fashioned, inefficient and yields little in terms of understanding a candidate’s job fit.
In this webcast Greg Moran, Founder and CEO of Chequed.com will discuss:
How to gather detailed performance information from a candidate’s past employers in just a few minutes
An overview of the use of behavioral science in the reference checking process
Use cases of automated reference checking technology
How to build your talent pipeline with highly qualified candidates

The steps to be covered include:
Organizational Strategic Plans are calling for talent to deliver on aggressive agendas with limited resources in a whole new set of work realities. It is vital that HR professionals adopt a whole new approach in regards to ensuring that human resources are able to deliver on the strategic goals of the organization.

Too often people make the mistake of thinking performance management means only performance reviews. Don’t make that same mistake. You’d be doing your employees and your company a big disservice.
It is an important fact that performance management needs to be on going. It’s not a once-a-year, on-the-fly performance review. Having a performance management system is about engaging employees in the company’s vision and direction.
HR departments play a vital role in the strategy, implementation, and execution of the performance management process. In this session, we will dissect the elements of a performance management system, walking participants through each phase and explaining how companies and employees can be better aligned with workplace performance and business growth. Highlights include hiring right; developing and committing to effective goals geared toward business alignment; creating effective development plans; performance review automation and why it’s important; effective communications; and compensation.
When you think about it, what isn't changing? Industries, organizations, jobs, work, and even people's expectations are shifting. So it's only to be expected that learning will also adapt to meet the needs of all the change around us. This webinar will explore a broad range of topics such as:
• Social learning and how it will continue to evolve to meet new social technologies
• What the Kahn Academy could mean for corporate learning
• The role of accreditation in providing "trophies" to the next generation of learning
• Eight strategies for accelerating development of new employees as experienced employees leave the workplace
• Augmented reality and the implication for just-in-time learning
And in the spirit of social learning, YOU are the content. Bring your ideas to the table to collaborate on understanding the future of learning.
Business users are generally time-poor, may lack the analytical skills to read and interpret charts, and need advice and guidance, not more data - however it is presented. This is where analysts, data scientists, statisticians, and power users help to analyze and interpret the information, and then present the outcomes to the managers and leaders – tell a story - so they can make informed, fact-based decisions based on the insights they’ve received. But this is not scalable to all casual business users across the organization without sound principals for engaging the business users and some degree of automation. Use this session to understand the key elements to engaging business users when presenting them with workforce analytics.
