Hire for Attitude

Media Type - DVD
Subject(s) - Interviewing

Why focus on attitude? Quite simply, skills can be taught. Attitude cannot. You've probably had the experience of hiring someone who you thought was perfect for the job—only to find out later that the person could not work within the organization. With fewer people doing more work these days, organizations cannot afford costly hiring mistakes and the resulting turnover. Finding the right person with the right attitude and mind-set is a top priority. 

In this video, a newly promoted manager needs to quickly hire a replacement for himself. Fortunately he gets some valuable advice from a fellow employee who guides him through the entire hiring process, from planning through interviewing and evaluation.

You will learn how to:

1.  Determine what attitudes lead to success in a job or organization.  
2.  Design questions to reveal those attitudes.  
3.  Conduct effective interviews.  
4.  Evaluate candidates placing a priority on attitude.

In the process, you will learn simple, but effective techniques to hire the best people for your organization!
