We know that hiring great people is one of, if not THE most important thing a leader can do. Not least because the cost of an incorrect hire can be up to $250,000 for senior roles.  It also can have an impact on indirect costs such as team and organisational culture, productivity and client relationships. While there’s no crystal ball to perfectly predict success, there are proven ways to increase your chances of getting it right.

In our next virtual event, we will hear from two guest speakers who will share stories of their experiences with assessment and how it has helped them with making selection decisions and successfully onboarding and developing their people. We will also hear from Steople Managing Director Hayden Fricke on tips for successful assessment including integrating data in a holistic way.

Our Speakers:

Stephen Moir

Stephen is the founder and Director of Moir Group, a leading finance and accounting recruitment organisation. Stephen is a firm believer that cultural fit is a predictor of success and has recently begun using assessment as part of Moir’s candidate selection and internal recruitment processes.

Marcelle Davis

Marcelle is the General Manager – People, Culture & Operations at CDC Victoria. Marcelle uses psychometric assessments to assist with candidate selection and onboarding as part of her broader recruitment process for key roles within the business.

Note: Timing below is in AEST. NZST timing for this event is 12:30pm-1:45pm.

We know that hiring the right people is fundamental to the success of any organisation. Whilst there’s no one perfect technique, research and experience tell us there are tools we can use to greatly increase our chances. From a business perspective, spending time training and developing people who are fundamentally not suited to a particular role is far more costly than “getting it right” in the first place.

In her role heading up recruitment for the Australian Defence Force, Air Commodore Sue McGready CSC leads a team of over 400 staff across Australia as they recruit each year over 8,000 staff into 300 different roles. Sue will share her experiences in running the largest and most complex recruitment process in the country, and the critical part assessment plays in choosing the right candidates for the right roles.

Megan Bell will also share the Steople approach to using assessment tools and techniques to:
•          Help organisations to make better selection decisions;
•          Improve the on-boarding of new employees; and
•          Help build targeted development plans for key individuals.

Have you ever hired someone and then realised within the first 6 months that the person is not right for the role or the organisation? Psychometric assessment is not a panacea, but it is a critical source of additional objective data, which, when used effectively, increases your chances of ‘getting it right’. From a business perspective, spending time training and developing people who are fundamentally not suited to a particular role is far costlier than “getting it right” in the first place.

As part of this intimate breakfast with industry leaders, you will gain insight into the benefits of using psychometric assessments to help make a “yes or no” selection decision and how the information obtained can be used to ensure your new hire is set up to reach their true potential.

You’ll learn about:
• How your organisation can make better selection decisions;
• Using psychometric data to improve the onboarding of new employees; and
• The best practice approach to building targeted development plans.

We have deliberately limited the size of this breakfast to facilitate a constructive conversation and invite you to share your thoughts and experiences.
