Online Workshop: Hiring for Success

Online Workshop: Hiring for Success
Care Providers of Minnesota commissioned Martin-McAllister Consulting Psychologists—industrial psychologists—to examine the long-term care industry to gain insight on hiring and training staff. In this session, Dr. Pendergrass will discuss some of the common challenges and pitfalls in interviewing and selecting candidates for care provider roles. She will discuss practical steps to take in enhancing employee election processes, based on scientific research and on accumulated experience. Using real world examples, Dr. Pendergrass will offer examples of red flags to look for in interview answers that might indicate future management challenges.
Learning objectives
Upon conclusion of this session, the learner will be able to:
  • Develop strong, competency-based interviews and evaluate candidates’ characteristics based on scientific evidence of a strong match with care provider roles
  • Learn the most and least effective training strategies for helping employees to learn the soft skills associated with care provision
