Safe Hire: Risk free hiring

359

Published on

Hiring new staff can be exciting and frightening at the same time. Finding your next great hire is hard enough without all the legal risks. That is why Safe Hire is an essential training for anyone with responsibility for hiring or screening applicants. You will learn to minimize the risks due to negligent hiring and implement an effective, legal safe hiring program. We’ll begin with a detailed look at the legally protected classes and common ways they face discrimination in interviews.

Next, we’ll take a practical look at a model hiring process and discuss ways to prevent discrimination at every step. We’ll end with a proven model for structuring your selection process. Our goal is to prepare you to interview and hire with confidence.
