How often have you hired someone with a great track record who turned out to be a bad hire? By discovering what a candidate’s previous managers and colleagues candidly say about their work style, skills and behaviors, you can objectively assess the candidate’s ability to be a top performer. Through this session, you will learn how technology has introduced a way for talent acquisition professionals to capture behavioral feedback from five references in just two days for each job candidate, and how to avoid candidates who score low with references. Also, see an overview of how this technology infuses compliance, consistency, reliability and validity into each reference-check and obtains feedback that identifies developmental needs of candidates.
This session will provide a background on how lean thinking and tools can help safety and any HR function. Following the teachings of W. Edwards Deming, Toyota created a production system, now commonly referred to as lean production. What is not well understood is that “lean” works in any office and business, regardless of size. Whether healthcare, small enterprise, food service, or non – profit, “lean” can help improve teamwork, culture and drive continuous improvement, but only if we go back to basics and strip away the mystery that this thinking is only for the manufacturing floor. Participants in the session will gain new insight into both “how” and “why” standards should be developed.
This program will discuss all aspects of legally effective incident investigation and management, arising from a variety of crisis situations. Basic principles of accident investigation will be examined, as well as management of OSHA/MSHA inspections arising from occupational accidents, insurance and tort/contractor liability issues, media management, staffing, and site security. Given that improperly managed incidents can frequently give rise to OSHA/MSHA prosecution or civil tort and contract liability, learning the basic principles will help to limit legal exposures for companies and their managers. Participants will learn proper approaches to root cause analysis as well as proactive steps that can be taken to avoid crisis situations in the future.
