Hiring Best Practices for Non-HR Managers: Uncovering Candidate Deception

Duration: 60 Minutes
This topic helps the persons responsible for hiring uncover the 'real' person behind the interview. This will include: learning to spot common 'red flags' on resumes, in interviews and in references, learning how to set the tone to create an environment of 'truth,' and learning how to ask questions that paint a more accurate picture of the candidate's true skills and knowledge.
Hiring Best Practices
Instructor: Norm Baker
Product ID: 505291
Most job candidates focus on putting their best foot forward, in their resume, their interview and their references. But you, as an employer, are not just hiring their best foot. You are hiring both feet. Your ability to uncover the 'real' person, not just the 'best parts' of a candidate, will often make the difference of a successful or failed hire.

Objectives of the Presentation
  • You will be able to recognize inclusions or omissions on resumes that may signal deception
  • You will be able to discuss how to set the context for truth
  • You will be able to identify interview flags
  • You will be able to review reference flags
Why Should you Attend
U.S. organizations spend $130 billion annually on hiring new employees. With a price tag like that, businesses can't afford to make mistakes! Yet 43 percent of employers say they've made bad decisions by hiring too quickly.

The role of line managers and others, particularly in smaller organizations. We've all heard the cliché that, "to some extent, every manager is a human resources manager." In many ways, I believe that's truer today than ever before.

Human resources management truly is a management function. Where there's an HR department, line managers can be said to have delegated some of their responsibilities to HR. Don't bring just anyone on your team. Learn to uncover deception and other red flags when moving through the hiring process.
