Seminar: "Stop Praying for Talent and Start Predicting It"
From the 2011 ICCFA Annual Convention
The perfect hire can take your business further than you might dare to dream, while a bad hire can cost it so much in terms of money, morale, productivity and more.
Whether you are hiring for an administrative assistant, a sales counselor, a maintenance worker, a funeral director or an executive, there are certain protocols that will greatly enhance your chances of bringing in the right talent for the position. In this session, Anthony Casablanca will share his expertise on sound hiring practices, including:
- developing detailed, competency-based job descriptions
- designing and conducting competency-based interviews
- understanding the talent waterline and how to see below it
- knowing what to look for and what to ask
- designing and conducting competency-based reference checks
Anthony Casablanca is vice president of operations for Batesville Casket Company, Batesville, Indiana. Previously, in his position as Batesville's vice president of human resources, he was named Human Resources Professional of the Year by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce for his "implementation of best practices, organization design and effectiveness, and alignment and accomplishment of the strategic direction of his company." Anthony recently was named to the board of trustees of the Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science.
