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.

Chairman & CEO
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.

Quality Of Hire
What truly makes the difference in the quality of your hiring process?
The culture fit is the most crucial part of this entire process yet it is the most overlooked. A good way to find like-minded people is to search groups on LinkedIn of similar interests.
Imagine during your phone interviews or your in person interviews you already had 7 references captured per applicant. You can ask as many behavioral questions as you would like but having previous work habits and previous employers information even before you meet with applicants for the first time can drastically improve your quality of the people you hire.
Having applicants interview themselves to replace the phone interviews not only replaces the phone interviews but also allows recruiters and hiring managers to see applicants answer all their questions in a short period of time.
Adding all these steps together can create a great improvement in the hiring process and also save you a substantial amount of time during the repetitive tasks so you can focus your time on quality.
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.
. Is your company up to the pressure of finding the right talent? With high unemployment and many organizations having gone out of business over the past 5 years one would think that there should be an abundance of people exploring new jobs and careers. Given a large supply and the technology to reach them you should have a sufficient pipeline of candidates to meet your growing needs? However we all know this is not the case. So what data and analytics are you using to examine key metrics such as outreach, the quality and quantity of your talent pipeline, the impact of your brand and much more? Have you done anything different over the past few years that led to large gains?
Are you or your recruiting staff still practicing full-life-cycle methodology? Did you know there is a better way to source talent and manage the recruiting process which the emerging world is leading the way? If you are interested in better, faster, cheaper ways of winning the talent war by having a competitive advantage over your competition – you won’t want to miss this presentation. “Linear Recruiting Methodology” is the future of recruiting and it is spreading fast…yet most developed countries have never heard of it.
