What does GOOD look like?
A lot of time and money is wasted on hiring the wrong people so it is worth considering who the right people are and how to get more of them into your organisation.
Recruitment is the most important people process we have, yet very few of us are any good at it. Research shows that 5% of your workforce produces 26% of the output and that only 19% of hires are an ‘unequivocal success.’ For all its importance and for all the investment we have made why is it so hard to hire good people? Why are we no better at hiring good people today than we were in the 1940s?
This is one of the three sessions that highlight an element of Talent Management and collectively focus on how to better hire, develop, lead and get the most out of our most important asset – our people. All the sessions are built using extensive research across business and academia and backed up with practical application across multiple businesses.
Each session consists of a series of presentations to impart knowledge, interspersed by interactive exercises (as groups or individuals) to get attendees to think more deeply about the subject and embed the learning. At the end of each session, attendees will be given an accompanying ‘white paper’ (which will provide a summary of the session, explore the subject in greater detail and give all of the references used) and a series of exercises to try.
This session will consider:
- The financial impact of hiring; how much a bad hire will cost you.
- What leaders can do to dramatically increase the chances of hiring good people.
- Three practical models that you can use immediately to hire the right people.
- Why would anyone bother working for you?
