The current labor market is incredibly tight for employers, often with more positions needing to be filled than there are viable candidates. The pressure to fill positions is compounded by legal and record-keeping requirements that can be very dangerous if not navigated skillfully. Missteps or inefficiencies here directly affect the whole of any organizations' business goals. In this unique environment, the Human Resource sections are critical to any organization, regardless of size. In order to legally and efficiently satisfy the need for fully qualified employees, it's imperative to establish a comprehensive selection process. This presentation will illustrate how to properly:


o Job Descriptions

o Sourcing and Advertising


o Job Posting – ATS, Job Board, Paper

o Diversity inclusion and non-discrimination

o Policy


o Who is an Applicant?

o Reviewing Applications

o Diversity Inclusion and non-discrimination

o Hiring Mangers – Are they trained to interview?

o Soft Skills/Personality Consideration – is it ok?


o Applications

o Demographics/Veterans/Disabled

o How long do you keep records?
