The Risks of Archaic Recruitment Processes Exposed - HRPA Webinar

Posted on 11 Jan 2017 by Kateryna Velma

To kick off 2017, Xref Canada is excited to host our very own Webinar with HRPA. 

John and Rick, Xref’s Canadian Regional Sales Managers will be running the Xref Recruitment Risk Index Webinar on January 16, 2017 at 12:00pm EST.

The Human Resources Professional Association (HRPA) governs and regulates professional practices within the HR industry. HRPA ensures competent and ethical HR practices are followed, as well as provides certifications to HR professionals that are recognized globally.

The hiring process is rarely easy, but for HR professionals with competing priorities and ever-growing workloads, it can be a significant pain point. This is especially true when it comes to reference checking – a time consuming process that is traditionally phone-based, manual and driven by the employer. This is not the way it should be.

During the webinar, you will learn more about conventional recruitment processes and risks, which will be highlighted by information gathered through the Recruitment Risk Index. This will showcase candidate behaviours and experiences in the recruitment lifecycle as it relates to referencing.

The research being presented, conducted by Quantum Market Research, is based on a survey of 1,000 job seekers and revealed some startling realities about the risk of inefficiencies and inconsistencies in the recruitment process – including the discovery that almost half of respondents admitted to using deliberately deceptive methods to improve their chances of landing a role.

The Index is a must-read for all HR professionals and will reveal valuable insights into the environment in which we operate. We are excited to showcase how Xref helps increase transparency in the hiring process which ultimately leads to better talent acquisition processes - all while saving time and money.
