Three Keys to a Great Hire – Keynote

Learn how to shatter the old paradigm of hiring for skills and experience and replace it with Social Age Hiring Skills™.

Bad hires cost organizations millions of dollars each year. They also place undue stress on managers and teams. Unfortunately, most managers have never been sufficiently trained in hiring well. Many resort to nothing more than matching poorly written resumes to even more poorly written job descriptions and then relying on gut feel when making this critical business decision. A decision that they often live to regret.

Hiring for the Social Age also presents its own set of unique challenges.

In our digitally connected, globally oriented world we must hire people to be more innovative, strategic and creative. We must hire problem solvers. There is a very specific way to both attract and screen this top talent.
