Affintus Webinar to Offer HR Departments Strategies for Scientific Hiring and Job Matching

AUSTIN, Texas — September 21, 2012 — Affintus Scientific Hiring will present a one-hour webinar, “So Remind Me…Again…Why Did We Hire This Guy?” on Wednesday, October 3 at 2:00 p.m. EDT/11:00 a.m. PDT.

As the available pool of top talent shrinks and the war for talent escalates, hiring well becomes a critical component of an organization’s business strategy. Deborah L. Kerr, Ph.D., co-founder and president of Affintus, will share insights to help organizations meet their staffing needs, such as:

• Why most hiring strategies are about as successful as flipping a coin
• What if not reading a resume could produce better hiring results?
• The science behind predictable hiring success
• Three small changes that deliver big data dividends for hiring managers
• How to measure and report selection results

Kerr is a performance measurement expert. Her work in measurement system design and implementation has been written about in Financial World magazine and has been cited as “best practice” by the Society for Human Resource Management. She led the development of one of the nation’s first public sector balanced scorecards, which was selected for the Balanced Scorecard Hall of Fame. Kerr is an award-winning teacher serving on the graduate faculty at Texas A&M University, where she teaches management, public policy theory, and organizational performance measurement.

“Companies want more than a warm body occupying a chair; they want high-performing employees,” said Kerr. “This webinar is designed to help organizations grow their success by using science to make the best possible people decisions — the ones that lead to greater bottom-line success and productive, satisfied employees.”
This webinar has been approved for 1 (General) recertification credit hour toward PHR, SPHR and GPHR recertification through the HR Certification Institute.
