Day-Long Workshop to improve how leaders hire, engage, recognize & retain staff:

Interview Right to Hire Right

"Based on my experience conducting more than 3,000 interviews (and making more that a few hiring mistakes) and my 25 years training thousands of leaders to hire the right people.” — Nelson Scott

Strengthen your interviewing skills to ensure you hire the right person for every position, every time. Apply what you already know about what makes top performers successful to the hiring process.

  • How to conduct reference checks to obtain high-quality information that you can use to make the right hiring decisions
  • How to decide who to hire and how to advise candidates of your decision
