Full-day | On-site Course:

Hiring Smart and On-boarding for Success: This session uses real life and case study examples to uncover the “must-have” traits for high performers on each team. We will examine the characteristics of current high performers, compare those to studies performed by Noll & Associates and combine the desired traits for new hires.

The second part of the session will be developing interview questions around critical traits and skill sets in order to streamline and focus the hiring process. We will discuss and recommend “hiring teams” to ensure that the process is manageable and produces the best candidates for consideration.

Finally, we will begin the process of a systemized onboarding protocol for each position. Participants will build out the first four weeks of an onboarding program. Following the session, managers will work with their team to finalize up to 13-weeks of onboarding activities for new hires.

Hiring Smart in the New Normal is essential for all Managers who are charged with recruiting, hiring and retaining high performing employees. Hiring the right person is one of the most important responsibilities a Manager undertakes, yet most Managers have little or no training in the hiring process. With the new media landscape, skill sets that guaranteed success in the past are now often obsolete.
