Hiring the right people is one of the most important decisions made in organizations today. When you are responsible for assuring the best hires, it is essential for you to perform due diligence after the interview process and the favorite candidates are selected. Candidates may interview very well, appear to be very competent, and have an excellent history on paper, but it is always important to verify that they are authentic. Some candidates who excel in interviewing skills can vastly exaggerate their competencies or past responsibilities and cover up any negative information about their past employment history.
The webinar will give you the tools and processes to help you get the information you need to verify a candidateâ€™s qualifications in experience, education, character and work ethics as well as meeting any other requirements you have for the position. â€œName, rank, and serial numberâ€ is not sufficient in discovering whether someone can do the job. We will cover what kinds of background checks are appropriate for different jobs and the best techniques to obtain the needed information as well as guidelines to follow in doing reference and background checks to assure being in compliance with employment law. We will also cover methods and policies on drug and alcohol testing.
