Your Applicant Flow Funnel

Thu, Feb 23, 2017 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM -- this webinar has concluded

Brad Black, President, CEO and founder of HUMANeX Ventures, will present the "applicant flow funnel" or the process around how school districts take in applications, screen applicants, interview, and ultimately make a hiring decision. We will provide valuable insight as to the use of different practices, time investment, as well as the applicant's perspective and expectations in the process. While we often hear concerns around hiring a diverse workforce and also on the amount of time it takes to complete the hiring process – what if you can widen your net and save time? Many school districts could be inadvertently removing diverse groups from the applicant pool using methods too stringent up front OR spending a lot of time/resources interviewing candidates that aren’t qualified because they haven't effectively whittled down the applicant pool. Or worse, they hire what they believe are "quality candidates" and they turnover in one year. What causes this?
We will address the advantages/disadvantages of using screening tools, phone/other interviews, fit/face to face interviews, and instruction "tests" where an applicant might teach a lesson as a step in the interview selection process. Since there is much time investment in each of these activities, we will discuss where/when/if properly using these steps can best utilize the district's available resources.
