VenueOnline event, USA - United States USA - United States

KeywordsHiring Toxic People; Human resources; Live webinars


Topics/Call fo Papers

The toxic workplace behavior has become a somewhat “normal” part of today’s work environments but it doesn’t need to be. With the rising cost of doing business – regardless of the industry and company size – toxic people in the workplace result in avoidable costs. Some costs are tangible such as lower sales while others are not, such as decreased concentration and focus from employees.
Have we simply assumed that toxicity in the workplace is part of the “new normal” in this fast-paced, technologically-enhanced business environment? Not at all.
During this special session, you will learn how to spot symptoms of toxic behavior in applicants before they are welcomed as new employees to your organization. You will learn foundational and actionable steps to ensure that you are building the best structure to protect your company’s culture. By the end of the session, you will be empowered and informed about what to look out for, what to do, and how to ensure a healthy workforce.
Hiring employees is one of the riskiest processes in growing an organization. The wrong hire can result in catastrophic results. While hiring managers and recruiters have high hopes during every step of the recruiting process, if they are not looking for red flags and assessing against the right criteria, they may miss or overlook specific data points. This could lead to not only the immediate cost by the dysfunctional person, but could lead to spread of toxicity, litigation costs, lower employee morale, and unwanted attrition.
