“The Dating Game”
How to hire right and increase your chances of a long-term relationship? This program takes an in-depth look “through a creative lens” at the psychological games played by both parties in regards to employee selection (the courtship) retention (the marriage) and termination (the divorce). Just like in dating, personality matters! Ultimately poor matched personalities will end relationships sooner than later regardless of the level of skill and could be a costly venture. Dysfunctional turnover has both indirect and direct costs that can be detrimental to organizational effectiveness. Therefore finding, hiring and keeping top talent should be on the top of the priority list.
This program takes a creative view of these relationships with an interesting twist that anyone who has been on the dating scene, married or wished they were back on the dating scene can relate to. We will also discuss some of the best practices that organizations are using for talent management that will keep relationships strong and enduring.
