Did you know that the average jury award for negligent hiring exceeds $1M whereas the average background check cost $17.06. And the average screening package ordered by clients contains a national criminal file search and a county criminal record search for counties lived or worked in the past 7 years? Does your screening meet the baseline? Are you average? Or more or less risk averse? Attend this session to learn the latest trends presented in the First Advantage Employment Background Checks Infographic and have a chance to benchmark your practices with session participants to hear first hand if other HR professionals vote “average” is good enough.
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
Hiring the best talent is a top priority, and pre-hire assessments are a valuable tool. When these assessments are implemented properly they can help predict future job performance, turnover, and cultural fit. However, if not legally compliant, an “off-the-shelf” assessment can lead to costly and time-consuming audits and potential lawsuits, which can negatively impact an organization in many ways.
The cost of non-compliance is quite high. For cases relating to external hiring, the average fee to settle out-of-court is $590,266 per EEOC case and $668,785 per OFCCP case. In situations where cases actually go to trial and are ruled in favor of the plaintiff, the average cost to the organization is over $13 million!
While the government’s view of healthcare and hospitals is still somewhat vague, it has been widely reported that the US Department of Labor, the OFCCP and the EEOC all believe that the healthcare sector will be scrutinized heavily on the subject of compliance.
In this presentation we will:
• Learn what to avoid when vetting pre-hire assessments and vendors.
• Explore what makes an assessment TRULY statistically valid.
• Examine the pre-hire process and discuss how seemingly harmless steps can present significant risk.
• Identify key areas MOST at risk for scrutiny and audits.
• Look at research and data findings from a simplistic and accessible point of view.
• Develop a checklist of actions that you can immediately apply to your pre-hire process to lower
There is no reason to make bad hires given the tools and knowledge available to us today. Learn more about identifying bad hires, the effects they have on your organization, and how to eliminate them in your hiring process.
Bad hires can be very costly, from the money wasted on hiring the wrong candidate to the time and actual cost-per-hire expenses. Yet, organizations typically only consider those employees who quit or are let go soon after joining to be the bad hires. The true bad hires, in terms of costing the company more money in the long term, are those employees whose performance diminishes over time. Though the company would never rehire such individuals, they are not necessarily bad enough to be fired and continue to be detrimental to the organization.
Are we claiming there should be zero turnover? No. People change and companies change.
Does it mean the elimination of bad job/person fit? Yes.
This webinar will discuss how bad hires are being made, how to identify them early on, and how to develop a process that eliminates bad hires.

Every person recruited by a recruiter or staffing professional has the potentials to create a disaster if the candidate is hired and proves to be dangerous, unqualified, unfit or dishonest. A recruiter can choose to simply roll the dice and leave their fate and professional reputation to chance, or a recruiter can learn the basics of due diligence in order to legally recruited safe, qualified and honest workers. In this webinar, learn how to legally select honest and qualified people for your clients or organization by using best practices to avoid bad hires and the professional and legal fallout just one bad hiring decision can create. In addition, understand recruiters legal liabilities if a background check are not done right. The session will also cover the legal limits on recruiters using social media as well as the increased focus on practices that do not discriminate.
Small business owners and HR leaders often recognize that employees are the most valuable asset but taking the first step towards identifying and executing an effective talent management strategy that can lead to engaged employees and small business success is often not top priority or just too difficult to accomplish.

Systems and strategies are equally important when attempting to ensure results in small companies as they are in large organizations. Statics show that organizations that implement effective talent management solutions outperform like companies by in excess of 22%.
This session will focus on the what, why and how of implementing strategies and solutions in small businesses to better attract, engage and retain top performers.
We will help you build a business case to get C-Level buy-in to your talent management initiatives and identify ways to effectively illustrate return on investment (ROI) for these programs.
Sourcing is not only the first step towards improving quality of hire, but also the most critical. Feed faulty input into any process and as you might expect the outcome will be inevitably flawed. This generally accepted principle called GIGO or “Garbage in, garbage out” is just at home in HR as it is in computer science.
By blindly accepting incoming candidate flow without questioning the source, you limit your ability to be selective. Without infinite applicant pools, and with practical constraints limiting the time your hiring managers can take before filling a vacancy becomes supercritical, they must judge the relative quality of each applicant slate. It is in this way that candidate quality circumstantially limits your organizations ability to improve quality of hire. Some talent sources are deeper, offering a broader choice than others, while some offer a limited choice yet yield a dramatically higher quality of applicant.
