Hiring has always been about finding a candidate with the right mix of qualifications, experience, and personality. Over time, evaluating each applicant’s potential fit has grown more complex as new hiring tools and techniques have been introduced. Hiring has blossomed into an intricate process fraught with legal and policy implications. (Not to mention the implications of making the wrong hiring decision-- the reason all these complex screening procedures exist in the first place!)
From financial background checks to psychological testing to social media searches, today’s hiring committees need expert guidance on creating a process that conforms to legal standards and instills confidence. During this comprehensive webinar, participants will review relevant legal considerations and how they impact screening procedures, the interview process and decision-making. Participants will also review relevant case studies, discuss policy and legal standards, and participate in polling questions to help paint a picture of current practices among universities.
