Culture by Design

Culture. It’s more than a corporate buzzword. It’s the heart and soul of your company. The truth is, every organization has its own unique culture. So what does yours stand for? And how does it impact the health and happiness of your employees?

Building a standout culture isn’t easy, but it’s one of the most important things you can do to ensure your company’s long-term success. This workshop will teach you:
 

  • How to build a culture by design, not default
  • Why culture should be a part of your future planning
  • How to create a culture that’s aligned with key business goals

Recruitment is a Sales Process

Are unfilled positions limiting your company’s growth? The “post ‘n “pray” is virtually useless. Today, recruitment must be strategic to ensure you hire and retain people who truly fit your culture and can drive growth.

A tight labor market, coupled with increased hiring, means that recruitment and retention will only get more difficult. Kathleen will lead you through a step-by-step process that turns recruitment into a sales process to:
 

  • Address immediate hiring needs
  • Create a pipeline of candidates ready when you need them
  • Uncover talented, passive candidates who are too busy helping others succeed to actively seek new opportunities

Be Simply Irresistible, Hire with a Purpose

Do you struggle to identify ideal candidates? Are your hiring managers relying on hunches? Do you have trouble assessing those elusive soft skills? This workshop provides a process to help identify people with not only the right skills, but the values and vision that align with your goals.

Kathleen will share an in-depth, competency-based interview process and powerful tools to help you find people who’ll fuel your growth. Training takeaways include:
 

  • Hiring based on core competency requirements
  • Making your company irresistible to candidates, boosting acceptance rates by up to 50%
  • Implementing a consistent hiring process, including optimal screening techniques
