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.

The current available talent can seem overwhelming to hiring managers, but there is a more effective way to distinguish worthy candidates than by judging their choice of font. Pre-employment assessments offer a solution to an otherwise abstract decision making process, and will save companies time and money when they hire the best candidate. Pre-employment assessments are extremely powerful tools that help organizations select and onboard individuals for open positions. Despite the utility of pre-employment assessments, some senior executives have misconceptions and often questions that they need answered before fully supporting a new process to implement pre-employment assessments in their organizations. With the cost of new hire training and company integration becoming increasingly expensive, finding the perfect candidate means more than excluding bad choices. Firms that hire individuals who match their corporate ethics, culture and business approach find those candidates have a better chance of “hitting the ground running” and have greater success and longevity in their jobs.

Hiring assessments are powerful tools to gather skills and behavioral information on your candidates. The use of a quality hiring assessment will identify the strengths and areas of concern in candidates (before the hire), enabling you to make fair and objective hiring decisions with confidence.
Assessment use also allows you to begin the performance expectation conversation starting on day one of the new hire's employment. This way both you and your new hire know what is expected, alleviating those unfortunate "surprises" of a not good hire and allowing your new employee the opportunity to improve themselves professionally while employed by you.

Comprehensive, Personalized Candidate Screening Is the Key to Successful Hiring
With the cost of new hire training and company integration becoming increasingly expensive, finding the perfect candidate means more than excluding bad choices. Firms that hire individuals who match their corporate ethics, culture and business approach find those candidates have a better chance of “hitting the ground running” and have greater success and longevity in their jobs.
To accomplish these goals, many HR departments turn to third-party screening firms. However, not all have the depth of expertise and experience this approach requires, especially when it comes to getting past the wall of silence interviewers often find when reference checking.
This presentation will detail tips for selecting a third-party screening firm that can successfully probe for detail-level information and then analyze and report on that data effectively and objectively. Speaker Will Barada’s discussion will include tips for:
1. Evaluating questionnaires used by the firm.
2. Determining how successfully reference interviews are conducted, including whether the screening firm seeks out additional references more willing to open up.
3. Exploring whether they use specially trained professionals that put references at ease and encourage them to provide detailed, relevant information.
4. Examining how extracted data will be analyzed and provided in reports and determining whether it provides sufficient information for the company’s needs.
