Training Course Syllabus:


Hiring the Right Stuff - Employee Selection Tools and Techniques

Overview:

Employee selection and promotion is about predicting the future. At decision time, the questions to be answered are "How well will this individual function in the role?" and "how long will they stay?” Additional predictions might include "How much potential does this person have to take on additional responsibility?" While perfect prediction isn΄t possible, solid understanding of principles, adequate preparation, and good discipline can dramatically improve accuracy and prevent the unpleasant surprises which inevitably result from a hiring failure. This seminar will equip attendees with the understanding and tools to design and implement selection and promotional processes for all positions entry-level to top executive, in organizations of any size - across industries. At the foundation understands position requirements what it takes to succeed. From there, we will explore recruitment where are the candidates who meet your needs and how do we turn them into applicants, Once we have an applicant pool, the attention shifts to screening and selection. Screening looks at efficient, low-cost means of reducing the candidate pool to a manageable size. Selection refers to a series of "lenses" to gain an in-depth understanding of the candidate΄s capabilities, motivators, interpersonal skills, and other factors which determine whether there is a good fit between the individual, the position, and your organization. We will explore the pre-employment interview and learn how to dramatically improve its effectiveness as a selection tool. This will include learning how to design high-yield questions which go beyond the customary "fluff" that characterizes many interviews and how to interpret candidate responses which, in turn, predict future on-the-job behaviors. We will also look at adding other selection tools such as testing and simulations (job samples) to the selection tool mix. These can greatly improve prediction accuracy and provide an alternative view of candidate skills. We will also explore techniques which improve the usefulness of reference information, including eliciting vital information from sometimes reluctant sources. Finally, we will address legal issues to ensure that any selection process is defensible and, even better is seen as relevant and fair by all candidates.

Why should you attend?

As Jim Collins of Good to Great wrote, "It all starts with putting the right people in the right seats on the bus". Hiring (and promoting) qualified individuals is likely the most important ingredient for organizational success, Hiring managers frequently make a multitude of mistakes, ranging from inadequately understanding position requirements to over-estimating candidate capability. Hiring mistakes, in turn, cause a multitude of problems, often quite costly, both economically and otherwise. This seminar will greatly improve both your confidence and competence at selecting people with the mix of skills, motivation, attitude, and personality to be successful at the position and good fits for your culture. In addition to the most often-used selection tool, the pre-employment interview, this seminar will explore the use of standardized instruments (tests), designing and using simulations, and maximizing return on references. Also, we will discuss defensibility and avoiding complaints from unsuccessful applicants. The seminar facilitator has 37 years’ experience as an industrial/organizational psychologist and has designed the selection processes for over 300 organizations including Ford Motor Company, Wal-Mart, First Bank Chicago, and the Peace Corps.
