Nothing can strengthen a company – or weaken it – as quickly as the recruiting, screening and hiring practices it follows.

Please join us for an opportune webinar, in which Seyfarth's Hiring & Selection Team link up with Dr. David Jones of Talent Technology Corporation, author of the new Jossey Bass book, Million Dollar Hire: Build Your Bottom Line One Employee at a Time.  The webinar will highlight in practical, business-related terms the payoffs and risks associated with today's recruiting and hiring approaches.

Million Dollar Hire summarizes the art and science that shape today's world of recruiting and hiring. It offers real-world solutions and proven techniques available to help business leaders and human resource executives obtain the highest returns on their hiring investments.

The webinar will provide an opportunity for participants to interact with the author and Seyfarth's own Hiring & Selection Team experts.

  • Recruiting – New Technologies and new legal risks associated with resume
    mining, concept searches, social media
  • Screening – The pitfalls in credit and criminal background checks
  • Candidate Assessment – Types of tools and their risks

    reverse discrimination
