WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2020
2:00 - 3:00 p.m. PT
Webcast - FREE for Members

The homicide of George Floyd in Minneapolis and the divisions in our national politics has dramatically raised the topic of race relations and equality at work. Diversity and inclusion is frequently a difficult subject of "haves" and "have-nots," with perceptions on all sides of preferential treatment of the other.

Human resources has the methods, validated assessments, and now the digital technology to significantly drive bias out of the decisions made to hire, reward, and promote employees. Moreover, HR can track the decisions made by management over time and identify where there are anomalies in the organization's decision making and investigate it. Are the anomalies caused by flukes in the numbers or are there conscious, or unconscious biases at work?

This course will identify many of the methods, assessments, and digital technology and show HR leaders how to put these tools to work to improve the quality of hiring and promotion decisions, organizational performance, employee experience, and its diversity and inclusion.


OBJECTIVES
-Know the selection methodologies and digital technologies that accurately and reliably result in hiring high performing employees without bias.
-How to use validated assessments in the hiring and succession planning and promotion process.
-How to discern validated and reliable assessments from the bright shiny objects
-How to fashion a strategy and plan for their business and budget.
