10:15 am        So Many Assessment Tools – Which/How to Choose?

We have had some great presentations from various leadership assessment vendors over the last few years but have not yet had a discussion on the user experience. In this segment we will ask your member peers who have experience using a variety of products, to lead us in a conversation on the ups and downs of utilizing such tools, when in the hiring process these tools should be used, and the value of the information gained. Discussion leaders graciously sharing their experiences will include Megan O’Malley of IRC and Céline Raffray of BMS.

1:30 pm          Screening Out Sexual Harassment Risk, Among Others

In our work hiring at the highest level for our organizations, we literally cannot be too careful. References are a favorite of many, but even these can be flawed, and we must now consider other ways of checking our potential hires’ backgrounds. Mintz Group, experts in the extended background-checking space, will not just check candidates’ social media histories and work history, but also look for tell-tale patterns that give clues of potential risks, which might include sexual harassment. Yet, even this may not be foolproof, and Mintz Group Partners Zack Henry & Alex Williams will join us to share what can be done to mitigate risk as much as possible, and what may still slip through the cracks.
