Credible Leaders: Hire Right and Keep Talent
Robert Lewis, Principal @ LTC Lewis Training and Consulting

*Approved for 1 hr of general recertification credit through HRCI & SHRM.*

Join us as we hear Robert Lewis, HRSouthwest presenter, share how to effectively find and keep talent.  Developing, implementing, and evaluating sourcing, recruitment, hiring, orientation, succession planning, retention, and organizational exit programs are necessary to ensure the workforce's ability to achieve the organization's goals and objectives.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define behavioral interviewing, selection and talent interviewing concepts
  • Transfer and implement behavioral interview data into first day on-boarding strategies
  • Utilize Stay Interviews to immediately engage new and current employees
  • Learn the power of dialogue to create powerful feedback

"Participants will receive quick strategies of how to use interviewing responses for 1st day on-boarding activities and learn how to quickly assess the retention of their talent pool by using stay interviews." - Bob Lewis

What will people achieve while attending:

  • Learn how to write some predictive behavioral based questions that will help them find the right talent.
  • Participants will use an on-boarding template to give immediate feedback regarding their new employees' talents.
