Why Attend?

Cut to the Chase
Should you be using behavioral interviewing, kinesic or analytical techniques? Which works best? Well, they're all powerful -- and they all represent important ideas that should be baseline knowledge for recruiters and managers alike. But who has time and budget to wade through days (even weeks) of training to get at the meat of each individual approach? AIRS researchers have invested the time for you. We've collected, evaluated and integrated the most powerful, proven techniques along with the most exciting new performance-based measures into a concisefour hour Web seminar.

Hire the Best
A bad hire wastes the original recruiting cost, as well as your organization's time and training investment. It also requires a replacement cost in cash, time and opportunity. It is critical that your recruiters and managers learn to interview effectively and hire for all the right reasons. AIRS Identifying Top Performers provides the most reliable methodology and a complete toolset for gathering information, assessing the candidate and determining the best hire for each position.

It Doesn't Have to be Complicated
Thirty years ago, behavioral interviewing was introduced as a way to map competencies to job requirements. Today, recruiters and market-leading employers realize that competencies do not guarantee performance -- and that skills may be less important than attitudes and aptitudes. This class offers a paradigm shift that eliminates the bulky binders that hiring managers don't have time to study as well asthe complicated, time-consuming forms that hiring managers and recruiters don't have time to fill out. AIRS Identifying Top Performers is based on a simple but powerful premise that reflects today's values and requirements: Competencies are important, but past performance is the best predictor of future success.
