Getting the Right People on Board: Recruitment and Selection
Harry Brull, PDI Ninth House

This workshop will cover the entire process of filling an open position – from analyzing job requirements and setting minimum qualifications to making an offer to the selected candidate. As a start, we will look at minimum qualifications and discuss how to design an effective and efficient recruitment strategy designed to yield the highest number of qualified candidates.

From there, we will explore the world of job analysis to determine our choice of assessment tools and what competencies are appropriate to measure. For each of the four major categories of assessment instruments (self-report/standardized instruments/simulations/other people) we will present samples and discuss the construction, administration, and scoring of each assessment option.

Particular attention will be paid to the distinction of screening tools, designed to reduce the size of the candidate pool and evaluation instruments which provide more detailed information about candidates.
Specifically, the workshop will provide examples and guidance in the following methodologies:

• Resume screening and scoring
• “Targeted resumes
• Training and Experience ratings
• Job-knowledge testing
• Situational judgment tests
• Personality testing
• “Live” simulations (roleplays, presentations, task forces, etc.)
• “Dead” simulations (in-baskets, planning exercises, etc.
• Interview panels
• Reference checking
• Promotability index

The session will be of maximum usefulness for attendees if they come with a particular position in mind that they can use as a prototype for designing a complete recruitment and selection process. The workshop is appropriate for those relatively new to the assessment field as well as those with experience who wish to sharpen their skills and gain exposure to new approaches designed to increase effectiveness, efficiency, and defensibility.
