How to Identify and Hire a Dream Team In Your Department or Company
Date / Time: Tuesday, October 27, 2015, 3:00 p.m. New York/Noon San Francisco

Everything about your professional life gets easier and more productive when your company or department is filled with talented team members who are motivated to do great work. The trick, of course, is being able to identify potential team members and then evaluate them effectively during the hiring process.

In spite of the critical importance of selecting team members effectively, many individuals who are tasked with hiring responsibilities get little guidance and are forced to rely on instincts that are unscientific and unreliable. Moreover, a candidate can seem impressive in an interview but then fail to perform over time in the job.

Since 1984, Barry Shamis has been developing programs to help managers learn to hire the best employees possible for their companies and departments. Barry’s techniques and methods allow clients to hire more confidently by making the hiring process more objective and less capricious. His company, Selecting Winners, has a client list that includes tech companies like Oracle, Microsoft, Cisco, SAP, GoPro, and Autodesk.

Barry will be joining Business Matters for a live episode of InformationWeek Business Matters on Tuesday, October 27th, at 3:00 PM EDT. He’ll be discussing his unique approach to to the entire hiring process. During the show, he’ll be available to respond to questions from listeners.
