Why Are We So Lousy at Hiring?

Wednesday 10:15 AM – 11:15 AM

Session Description

As much as 80% of employee turnover is due to a bad hiring decision. – Harvard Business Review

The definition of insanity is doing something over and over again and expecting a different result. Yet, when it comes to successfully attracting, selecting, and on-boarding the best-fitting candidates, we seem to double down on the same old selection and interview techniques that are not working for us!

We are lousy at hiring, and it time to change what we are doing.
