It’s simple. Hire the right person the first time, keep them happy, and you won’t throw money away on turnover. PeopleKeys, the expert in applied behavioral assessments and personality, has teamed up with the experts in full-suite, HCM software solutions, Ascentis, for a two part educational webinar series on how to hire the right person for the job, and how to keep the employees you’ve already got. These webinars will offer unparalleled insight into a business’ most important asset- its people.

Anyone involved in the hiring process will reap the benefits of this brief, accredited webinar series. Featuring Dr. Bradley Smith, authority on the development of Human Behavioral Analysis and skills assessment for over 20 years, the webinars will discuss the indirect costs associated with the loss of an employee. He will propose simple strategies for significantly reducing turnover. With accreditation from the Society for Human Resource Management and the Human Resource Certification Institute, this series will teach participants how to use personality assessment tools in hiring.

For almost four decades, PeopleKeys has been the leader in cutting edge Behavioral Analysis and personality assessment resources. Throughout their expansion domestically and internationally, they’ve sought to improve the understanding of human behavior through DISC theory-based solutions. This knowledge of applied Behavioral Analysis has helped people to reduce stress, improve their relationships, increase workplace productivity, raise morale, and enhance their communication skills. Personality expertise, in addition to their highly customizable proprietary resources, has led PeopleKeys to its current level of international success.

This expertise will be put to use in Ascentis’ and PeopleKeys’ upcoming webinar series on March 2nd titled “Using Behavioral Assessments in Recruitment and Hiring” and the second on March 16 “The Hidden Cost of Turnover and Strategies to Increase Retention.” The first will cover the use of behavioral tools in hiring, and the second covers how to use these tools in conjunction with onboarding and management techniques to reduce turnover.

Over the course of these two 60-minute presentations, Dr. Smith will address:

  • The real cost of turnover
  • Top three factors leading to high turnover
  • How good retention starts with the hiring process
  • How an organization in a high turnover industry was able to cut their turnover in half
  • Motivational factors leading to long term employee retention (surprisingly, income isn’t one of them)
  • How technology assists in retention and the reduction of employee turnover
