WEBINAR: Recruitment CPR: Hiring with a Culture and People Refocus
Thursday, April 15, 2021
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST

We’ve all done it. The dream candidate. The perfect interview. An easy hire. Then, the problems begin: the complaints roll in, and we spend countless hours trying to untangle the mess before deciding this person is “not a good fit.” If only we could have known before we hired them…

This webinar will breathe life back into your hiring process, bringing your hospital culture and people into focus. Too often, we concentrate on WHAT someone can do, rather than considering HOW their thinking enhances the team and WHY they will be a good fit (or not).

The session will help participants:
  • Identify techniques to find a great fit for the team
  • Learn to listen to what candidates are saying (and not saying!)
  • Minimize liability by using interview best practices and avoiding common pitfalls
  • Understand why working interviews are a bad idea and learn how to efficiently assess knowledge and skills without one (yes, technical skills too!)
  • Spot red flags during the first few weeks after hiring and implement strategies to address them
