2017 Talent Management Conference & Exposition

Many organizations are surprised when they need to fill a position quickly and they end up with a candidate that does not work out. Just as harmful is keeping someone who needs to go.  Unfortunately, both scenarios can be indicators of bigger problems in the organization and can even be a sign that a firm is fundamentally out of alignment. This discussion will reveal the advantages of hiring slow and firing fast and how problems in the hiring and termination process may be a symptom of more fundamental issues that need to be addressed.
