RL100: Hiring Processes that are Effective, Fair, Ethical and Engaging  ·
Browns, Covent Garden, London

About the Event

Putting your assessment process to the test

All too often organisations make compromises when designing an assessment process. For example, using blunt assessment measures to reduce the volume of applications at the expense of fairness; or introducing multiple assessments to make the best hiring decision, only to alienate your applicants with a long drawn out process. In this interactive session, we will examine these polarities and explore how to build a hiring process without the trade-offs.  We will draw on our experience of working with clients in volume assessment, with a particular focus on building a diverse and inclusive workforce.

  • Peter Chater – How personalised assessments helped shape our Social Mobility strategy + early stages results

In-Depth Roundtable Discussions

The Venue

Lively, vibrant and eclectic, Covent Garden is in the heart of the West End, surrounded by theatres, galleries, shops and landmarks. Once the Westminster County Court building and now elegantly converted into a bar and restaurant, Browns is close to all the main theatres and our pre- and post-theatre suppers are extremely popular. The once Courtroom has now become the house to our events.

A day out the office!
