Lina McKenna, Employee Performance Strategies, Inc.

Tips to Recruit & Interview Today’s Workforce


Granted in today’s environment we don’t have a long line of candidates waiting to apply but that doesn’t mean we resort to a fifteen-minute interview basically consisting of checking for a pulse.  The session will share the top strategies on how to ask the right questions and listen for the answer you need to hear not want to hear.  How you interview sets the stage for on-the-job performance.  The right questions set the expectations and the follow-up questions should help flush out future slackers with poor attendance records.


The session will include a ten-point self-assessment to discover what type of recruiter and interviewer you really are.  Afterall, the good candidates have other offers and are interviewing you as well. Learn tips on how to get candidates that applied to respond and engage in an interview process immediately.  Recruiting and interviewing is certainly different in 2023.
