Hiring Smart

(How to Look Beyond the Interview)

You may have heard the saying. Either hire smart, or manage tough.

Decisions in hiring are among the most important because of the high cost of mistakes. Studies reveal the cost of replacing a bad hire, on average, is two and one-half times the person’s first year salary. And that is if you handle the replacement within the first six months.

Amid pressures to fulfill key positions, even the best managers often miss vital steps in the hiring process. To implement the best practices, you need to look beyond an interview and resume to unveiling and interpreting a candidate's true character. The best predictor of success in hiring is a person’s behavior. The past will always leave clues once you know exactly what to look for.

In this program you’ll learn:

  • A practical efficient method for evaluating people
  • How to make more accurate predictions of performance
  • When it’s time to make a new hire, and when it’s time to let someone go
  • Five simple strategies for before, during and after an interview to increase your success in finding the right hire

This program can help anyone, at any level of management, approach the hiring process with greater skill and effectiveness.
