Many businesses make rushed hiring process steps. Unfortunately many poor choices are made based solely on gut feeling. Many candidates can make a very positive presentation and may throw off the judgment of an inexperienced interviewer. Hiring the wrong person can be very expensive. When you consider the recruiting cost, interviewing, employee salary and benefits, lost productivity, and retraining costs the number could be from 20 to 33% of an annual salary according to some estimates.
Using employment assessment tests can help you identify the job candidates that are a best fit and would have greater probability of performing well in your company. Assessment tests can also be used for current employees to identify development opportunities and select people for promotion.
This webinar will discuss assessment testing as it relates to employment. We will cover use of assessments in hiring selection. You will learn the nature of pre-employment testing and how it can be used effectively and legally. When used properly pre-employment testing combined with skilled interviewing can help predict future performance.
Many hiring decisions are made based on a candidate’s past experience rather being based on probability of future performance. A good hiring decision is made based on a candidate’s ability to perform at a proposed job. Hiring managers need the information to predict that.
why should you attend
According to some sources the cost of hiring the wrong person can range from $7,000 for an entry level employee up to $300,000 for an executive. The U.S. Department of Labour currently estimates that the average cost of a bad hiring decision can equal 30% of the individual’s first-year potential earnings. That means a single bad hire with an annual income of $50,000 can equal a potential $15,000 loss for the employer. Many hiring mistakes are made because hiring managers use their gut instinct rather than valid criteria. Companies can train mangers to interview properly. Although this will certainly help and should be done, a pre-employment testing instrument will insure consistency.Click to View the Pricing Plan

Thank you for the spreadsheet webinar. The webinar was informative and helpful. Although many of the concepts are known and understood by Industrial and Process Engineers, it is always helpful to have a straightforward review. The spreadsheet will be beneficial in being able to help identify areas of risk and areas that may require some attention.

This was a very informative session, it did help my company by raising awareness in areas we lack policies. The only thing I would suggest get added to the session is direct information relating to Accounting, ex. Taxation rules for record retention as they are some records which a company is required to keep indefinitely.

Overall I found the video conference well organized and very informative. The presenter, Ronald Adler, was certainly extremely knowledgeable and presented the subject matter in a well organized, direct and succinct manner. Afford the attendee the ability to track and record paid attendance/activity without a lot of tracking and follow up in order to gather the necessary information required to record the CPEs earned and paid for.

As this was our first experience, we did not know what to expect. I believe the webinar was informative and to the point, and explained to us the purpose of the I-9, and how the company can be affected by an audit. It really motivated us to review our files and bring them up to date.
