Narrowing Down Candidate Pools: Navigating Employment Law and Assessment Practices

Join SCHRA for our January monthly member’s meeting, where we will learn all about Narrowing Down Candidate Pools and Navigating Employment Law and Assessment Practices with Dr. S. Richard Park with Talent Alignment, LLC. Breakfast will be provided.

Who should attend? HR Managers and practioners, small business owners, employment attorneys, recruiters, talent management specialist, and anyone interested in learning more about best recruiting practices.

“Can I defend this selection process?” 

(Actual question from an employment attorney to Rick – our presenter.) 

Hiring standards are a critical component of your organization’s success.  While these standards should produce employees that have the potential to deliver results, deciding what these standards should be is not easy.  Part of what makes this decision complex is a) employment law governing selection/internal employee movement and b) quality standards for the assessment tools your company uses. 

Here are Rick’s commitments to our members: 

  • Will this presentation be too technical?  No! 
  • Do you need in-depth knowledge of employment law?  No! 
  • Will you need to understand statistics?  No? 
  • Will you learn what questions to ask when considering new selection tools?  Yes!

We’ll explore these topics at the session: 

  • Infusing business strategy into the selection process. 
  • Important components of employment law. 
  • Assessment tool categories. 
  • Overview of reliability/precision. 
  • The relative value of personality, problem solving, and other abilities in selection/promotion.
