Hiring Right: The Foundation for Building a Magnetic Culture

Improving the quality of hire is the first step to creating a Magnetic Culture and is the foundation to Talent Management Success. People will join your company, and stay on board because they like working with others who are already on your team. But how do you hire these people who become a positive force in your organization? New York Times author and Human Capital Management expert Kevin Sheridan shares how he’s helped some of the world’s largest corporations break down detrimental processes and rebuild a culture that fosters productive engagement.

Key takeaways:

  • What is a magnetic culture and what are the bottom line and myriad benefits to employee engagement
  • Learn why candidate selection is one of four critical steps in hiring for a magnetic culture
  • Finding and determining whether a candidate will be an engaged employee
  • Learn how to leverage revealing behavioral interview questions and act on "non-negotiable" things you might see during the interview
