SkillSurvey session to focus on predictive hiring

SkillSurvey Inc., the leading provider of confidential, science-based reference assessments that help employers make better hiring decisions, will be hosting a session entitled “Predictive Hiring: A New Approach to Finding Candidates Who Will Succeed in Your Organization,” featuring Nationwide Children’s Hospital, at the 2014 HR Star Conference in Cleveland, Ohio on July 24.

“HR professionals now have a host of technologies available to help them leverage the power of big data,” said Mike Bartkus, Regional Vice President for SkillSurvey. “We'll be showing attendees how they can harness data from references to predict which job candidates have a higher likelihood of being successful in the long-term.”

The session will feature Marcey Kaye McDonald, Director of Employment for Nationwide Children’s Hospital. A pediatric hospital with 68 branches across Ohio, Nationwide Children’s Hospital places great importance on patient satisfaction. McDonald will share her experiences with SkillSurvey’s Pre-Hire 360®, a tool the children’s hospital has used for nearly two years.

“I look forward to visiting with my HR peers and hope that sharing some interesting results we’ve achieved in hiring will help other HR professionals think about how they can predict which job candidates will be successful where they work,” said McDonald.

McDonald is passionate about talent acquisition and has dedicated her 20 year career to all things related to recruitment. She has spoken before a variety of professional organizations and schools on assorted recruitment topics.
