Course description

Hiring the Right People for the Right Job

Think of how much time, money, and energy is wasted trying to recover from a hiring mistake. The person is trained (and retrained) to do a job he or she may never be able to do. The person struggles to fit into the company culture, knowing that on some level the square peg may never fit into the round hole. Moral sinks and productivity plummets. It is better to hire right than to fix a hiring mistake, and this course will help you learn how. The program takes an all-encompassing approach to the interview and selection process: analyzing the job, asking pertinent questions, quantifying responses, and evaluating results.
