Deciding who to hire is one of the most important decisions an employer can make. This is because, when you hire a new employee you are inviting them into your family. In one way or another they will impact your organization’s productivity, morale, culture and even turnover. Why is it then that these important decisions often feel rushed? Why is it that hiring managers often feel they are too busy to really find out if “this” particular person is really the best hire?
On May 11, 2021, this webinar will explore the shortcomings of the majority of standard hiring decisions and how to address them through the use of what is called “multi-modal assessment.” In multi-modal assessment, one has the opportunity to get a much more complete view of job applicants and make an informed decision that one is not likely to regret. Further, multi-modal assessment offers the promise of providing a more equitable venue where people from diverse backgrounds have an opportunity to demonstrate their job-related abilities.
In this webinar, Dr. Jim Higgins, Ed.D., will walk through the following topics:
- What is one of the biggest mistakes a hiring manager can make?
- What are the pros and cons of structured and unstructured interviews?
- What is multi-modal assessment and how can I use it?
- Examples of tools that can be used in multi-modal assessment
