SkillSurvey Regional Vice President, Michael Bartkus, will present the webinar. He has helped HR leaders at hundreds of organizations improve their quality-of-hire, increase their recruiting efficiency and implement best practices for hiring. He is an expert at leveraging technology to drive reference-assessment programs and modern-day talent acquisition strategies. Before joining SkillSurvey, Bartkus held leadership positions with several other leading technology firms.

“Reference assessments are tremendously powerful, valuable and useful in the hiring process,” Bartkus said. “They have scientific integrity and are quicker, more efficient and harder to ‘game’ than self-assessments. Plus, they can help identify candidates who are faking job references. Join me to see what all the buzz is about for reference assessments and how you can use them to identify the best talent and eliminate bad hires.”
