    .About the Program:

    Are you overwhelmed with "bad" hires and rehiring for the same positions over and over? What is the true cost of making a bad hiring decision? Spending a little more time preparing for and conducting interviews for hiring the "right" person can save you valuable time and money!  This interactive session will provide information and resources on identifying skills and competencies and how to conduct "Behavioral Interviews". You will understand the value they bring to hiring the "right" person."The best leaders know how to get individuals to work together to accomplish goals. In constrast, we struggle to enable our colleagues to complete projects on time and on budget. We do our best to motivate employees to demonstrate more concern for profitability or follow procedures, but we regualry fall short.
