DISC measures behavioral style. It gives us the tools to predict a number of factors crucial to making a good hire. What motivates a person, how they handle conflict, the kind of projects they’re most suited for, how they communicate
Boardman, Ohio (PRWEB) April 22, 2015
According to The U.S. Department of Labor, a single bad hiring decision can result in a loss of 30% of that employee’s first-year salary. To put that into perspective, consider this: If a newly-hired individual with an annual income of $60,000 ends up being a poor fit for a position, the employer stands to lose $18,000 on the basis of that single poor choice. With that much money on the line, it’s not just important to find strategies to make informed, accurate hiring decisions—It’s essential.
To help increase the chances of hiring success, PeopleKeys plans to air a live webinar on the role of DISC behavioral principles in the hiring process. The Science of Effective Hiring webinar will stream live at 1pm EST on Thursday, April 23rd. The goal of the Science of Effective Hiring webinar is to show participants how DISC theories of behavioral analysis can be used to streamline hiring and help identify the candidates that have the right personality, skills, and temperament for the job.
The Science of Effective Hiring DISC webinar will cover:
- An overview of DISC personality theory
- How to use DISC to gain insights about your candidates beyond what a resume or interview might offer
- How to use performance benchmarking to take the guesswork out of the hiring process
Led by master DISC coach John Schindell, enrollment for the Science of Effective Hiring webinar is $49 dollars. Each webinar participant will also receive a copy of the PowerPoint presentation used during the training.
“DISC measures behavioral style,” said Schindell. “It gives us the tools to predict a number of factors crucial to making a good hire. What motivates a person, how they handle conflict, the kind of projects they’re most suited for, how they communicate with others—These are traits that you don’t see on a resume, and often can’t perceive during an interview. DISC eliminates the guesswork often associated with hiring, and offers a more scientific approach to the hiring process. We want to give you the tools to ensure that you’re able to choose the right person for the right job, every time.”
The Science of Effective Hiring webinar will be presented as a part of PeopleKeys’ popular DISC for the Real World series, which includes monthly installments of interactive 60-minute DISC training sessions on a variety of topics.
