Beyond the Buzzwords with Hiring: Apply “Lean” Processes and Fix the WayYour Organization Hires

This is a fast-paced look at clever and aggressive new hiring processes that save time and effort and are legally compliant. Mixing “Lean” theory, fresh case studies and psychological theory, the instructor covers new ground with a fresh, data-driven look at the hiring process. This workshop begins with a passionate indictment of the “status quo”, progresses with “how-to” content in the middle, and ends with an inspirational call to action. The instructor will challenge how your organization currently hires and will give practical tips and advice on making clever process changes that produce real results, both in hiring and retention. Bad hires come from bad knowledge, and this session shares good, practical secrets.

  • Look beyond the buzzwords and rethink the hiring process instead of tweaking business as usual
  • Apply true “Lean” principles to a re-design of a key process that can be applied to any organization
