All too often, hiring managers are unknowingly biased when it comes to making selection decisions in the hiring process, and that goes beyond the typical EEOC standards. Many have a subconscious tendency to hire the most attractive, smooth-talking candidate, rather than selecting the most qualified. So how can recruiting and HR professionals ensure they consider all of the relevant information when making their hiring decisions?
During this complimentary webinar, Tim Sackett and Kris Dunn of the blog, Fistful of Talent, will provide a complete rundown of the false positives and hiring biases often afflicting hiring managers. Additionally, they will explore the cliché of hiring with your gut and when it makes sense, when it is lazy and when it may potentially get someone fired. They will also share the top three ways recruiters enable managers to commit false positives when hiring and offer strategies on how to end the false positives and hiring biases plaguing many organizations.
Attendees will also learn how the strategies aimed at eliminating false positives and hiring biases can be included in the modern hiring process to ensure employers make smarter hiring decisions and how, over time, these principles will help them gain an improved quality of hire in their organizations.
HR and training and development professionals, business managers and executives interested in learning how they can improve hiring processes by overriding the subconscious inclination to hire based on false positives are encourage to attend this educational and entertaining session.

References are a joke. Every company requests them, every candidate provides them, but no one checks them. Why? Because old-fashioned reference checks are phone-based, time-consuming and obsolete. Chequed.com makes reference checks relevant with an automated reference-checking solution built on assessment-based logic. As an add-on for an even greater level in hiring accuracy, Chequed.com delivers the same assessment-based screening logic in ChequedFit™, a high-volume early stage pre-employment test to rapidly weed out low potential and identify high potential candidates.
