PDG Track:HR Expertise (People, Organization, Workplace)
Did you know that when people are properly aligned with their job according to their natural strengths the result is a 40% increase in productivity? In Good to Great, Jim Collins talks about the importance of getting the right people in the right seat on the bus. What he doesn’t provide is the solution. Where are the instructions on how to go about doing that?
During this session we will take an in-depth look at a very practical solution on how to implement Jim Collins’ advice to get the right people in the right seats on the bus. This will dramatically drive up performance and drive down turnover for your team.
You will gain:
• A method for avoiding bad hires – people that look great on paper, interview like a rock star, but turn out to be
someone else on the job
• Strategies to identify job candidate strengths before making the hiring decision
• Understanding how to bring objective data into the very subjective hiring process to make more successful hiring
