Hiring webinar! The REAL way to hire for "fit"

We have all seen cases where someone is hired and, despite their skills, they aren’t able to perform well. The reason for this is one of the great HR mysteries of our time (if there were great HR mysteries of our time). The good news is: research demonstrates why certain people don’t work out in organizations and what hiring teams can do to ensure they are making the right decision with each hire.

Liz Kofman, Unitive’s staff sociologist, has a PhD from UCLA. She trains our customers in how to apply hiring best practices. Half an hour spent with her would make anyone better at hiring. That’s exactly what we’d like to offer you and your team!  And for this webinar, we’ll focus on “fit”.

On Tuesday February 21st at 10am PDT, Unitive will host its first-ever webinar: The REAL way to hire for “fit”. Attendees will learn:

  • Why it’s important to hire for fit
  • What culture fit isn’t – and what it is
  • How to make sure your teams are hiring for the right fit

Why a hiring webinar?

The world’s most successful companies already treat hiring as a critical business activity. They know the best team can outperform any other. They’ve seen it happen. Other companies find themselves competing with the giants for talent as well as business. These companies have been calling on Unitive to help them incorporate research-based best practices into their hiring process.

In response, we developed a series of working sessions on Values-Based Hiring. Great candidates aren’t those who went to the right schools. They’re the ones who will get up to speed fastest, be the most productive, and are the most likely to stay at your organization. You don’t identify them by superficial qualities. You identify them by their alignment with your values.

Our working sessions have been so successful that we wanted to share them with a wider audience. This hiring webinar will be the movie-trailer version of our feature-length hiring workshops!

Who should attend?

If you’re interested in what the scientific research tells us about how to make better hires, you should attend. If your HR team members are keen to make sure they are hiring for the best “fit”, they should attend. Maybe your hiring managers complain that time spent hiring is time wasted. They should attend! Of course you’d like your interviewers to have the same ability to identify potential superstar employees. They should attend. If anyone is busy at that time, don’t worry. We’ll record the session and make it available afterwards. Or you could opt for the feature film version!
