    The Interviewer Experience:  Training hiring managers to  conduct predictive and unbiased interviews in the wake of  the Great Resignation

    What are  the primary challenges that organizations face  today  in hiring qualified candidates?
    This session is meant to discuss not only the challenges  hiring managers face, but to offer techniques to help hiring managers conduct effective and unbiased  interviews that result in the hiring of a talented  and diverse pool of employee  candidates.
    To illustrate the importance of training for hiring managers, George will feature “The Interviewer Experience,” a tool that offers a unique, immersive approach  to learning structured  interviewing techniques that put a participant into a real-life business case where there is an urgent need to fill a critical position on their team.
    Topics include:
    • Emphasizing the concept of inclusive hiring, specifically addressing  bias and understanding what constitutes discrimination in the hiring process.
    • Exploring methods and tools to inform hiring decisions based on years of research and legal guidelines regarding effective-interviewing  best practices.
    • Teaching effective structured-interview methods that are consistent, efficient, and help identify top talent.
