Accepting Accountability for Yourself and Holding Others Accountable.
Bob Bethel, SPHR; The Employers' Association

Summary of Program Description:

Too often individuals want to blame others for their lack of opportunity, growth, and happiness. Statistics indicate that employees who take accountability for their own performance are not only more engaged, they get better results and they are happier! In this presentation we'll review how leaders must hold themselves accountable and provide an environment that allows their employees to do the same.

Presentation Learning Objectives:

1. Learn the value of taking charge of your own growth, not waiting for someone to present you with the right opportunity.
2. Understand how you must hold others accountable to be an effective leader.
3. Understand the value of engagement in recruitment and retention.
4. Learn how to gauge your own performance and that of your employees.

2014 Chapter Luncheon - Nov 13, 2014

Six factors to consider before selecting an assessment. Presented by: Carla R Messer, BestWork

Six factors to consider before selecting an assessment. Presented by: Carla R Messer, BestWork

Summary of Program Description:

The direct and indirect costs of a bad hire or promotion are well known. Multiple studies have shown the cost of a bad hire to be as much as three to four times the individual's annual salary. Additionally, as Gallup® and others have documented, too many employees just don't perform at expected levels, are not fully engaged, or unnecessarily choose to move to other companies.

In light of this business challenge, it is no wonder there has been a strong trend in the increased use of assessments to acquired, develop, and promote the best talent. However, with this trend has come significant confusion on how to choose assessments and how to best use them to obtain a competitive advantage.

When evaluating assessments, there are six key questions that must be answered:

1. Is the assessment work focused and presented in a manner that builds the confidence of applicants and employees?
2. Does the assessment produce results that relate to job performance for the specific jobs?
3. Does the assessment produce an overall score enabling recruiters and line managers to make consistent and accurate employment decisions?
4. Does this assessment process measure all the important factors related to success for the job?
5. Is the assessment legal and ethical?
6. Is the assessment valid and predictive?

Presentation Learning Objectives:

• Understanding the assessment of evaluation criteria;
• Sightline to bias in assessment and hiring processes;
• Understanding of how to align hiring criteria to both eligibility and suitability needs; and,
• Explore the costs of poor hiring decisions.
