Skillful Talent Series 102: Candidate Evaluation
It's no secret that, as the region's unemployment rate remains at historic lows, small businesses are struggling to find the skilled talent they need to remain competitive; according to Denver Metro SBDC's recently publishedColorado Small Businesses Survey, more than half of companies with revenue over $500,000 reported that a lack of qualified workers was a challenge to their growth.
That's why we are bringing you the Skillful Talent Series training's, designed to help employers find, hire and train talent with a focus on skills instead of proxies for skills like previous titles and degrees, thereby deepening your companies' talent pools, reducing time to hire and improving retention and diversity.
Avoid the frustration and cost of bad hiring decisions! Traditional interviews assess someone's personality, not their skill set, leaving you uncertain on an applicant's ability to do the job. Join us to learn how to build an evaluation process that differentiates those good for the job from those just good at interviewing.
In Skillful Talent Series 102: Candidate Evaluation, you'll learn how to:
- Build a screening process that is inclusive to all qualified applicants
- Ask interview questions that get to what impacts your bottom line
- Use assessments to ensure you hire people who get the job done
Remember, skills are the best predictor of success for new hires. Be certain that you're hiring people with the skills your company needs most!
