You're NOT The Person I Hired - The Success Factor Methodolgy

Why does research show that 56% of all executive hires fail in their first year to eighteen months? In our consulting and research with thousands of companies we've discovered that:

Hiring tends to be the only process in the entire company that is not performed according to a documented process or methodology.

They are using outdated sourcing, screening, and interviewing techniques that required no training or expertise. There is no uniform, specific process to assess candidates and evaluate them against each other.

There is no marketing plan to attract good candidates. The companies concentrate mainly on applicants who applied after seeing an advertisement.

There is no accountability for bad hires (or good ones, for that matter).

They have no process for establishing goals for an open position before they hired the candidate.

Hiring is far too important to depend on random luck or the flip of a coin. Using the Success Factor Methodology, Vistage members can expect a dramatic improvement in hiring success from their companies almost immediately. Attendees using and actively applying this methodology across a broad range of positions within their companies are bringing aboard extraordinary talent on a consistent basis.

ADVANCED INTERVIEWING: ELIMINATE EMBELLISHMENT AND EXAGGERATION
Stop rolling the dice with interviews. Learn how to probe deeply and get to the truth.

What percent of people do you believe exaggerate or embellish in the interview? Through extensive surveys among executives and managers the number is a staggering 90% or more. Are you confident you know if a candidate is telling the truth or exaggerating? In this Advanced Interviewing Program, you'll learn how to separate the candidates who are great at interviewing from those that can actually do the job.

Finding Top Talent and Social Media
This Keynote or two hour workshop will change how you attract talent.

Most companies excel at fishing in the bottom third of the candidate pool for talent.

In fact, the process by which most companies attempt to find candidates actually turns top talent OFF so they never even engage you.

This program is focused not on attracting candidates, but how to attract top talent.

How to use social media to attract and find top talent.

How most companies need to start fishing in the deep waters where the passive candidates are located.

How to start getting to the canddiate's motivation.

How to move away from desperation hiring, because it takes so long to find candidates.

How to have a queue of candidates available when want them not need them?
