November HR Webinar Series: Testing and Assessment

We have been thinking about minimum qualifications all wrong.  Minimum qualifications are often developed with a presumption that certain types of education and experience are necessarily required for entry into a job, without consideration of what that education and experience really tells us about a candidate.  This often leads to minimum qualifications that do little to narrow our candidate pools in a meaningful way, to ones that cause unfair advantage to some, while denying others employment opportunities. In this webinar, we will challenge you to think about the minimum qualification screen as the selection test that it actually is, and discuss a simple way to use job analysis data to develop minimum qualifications, as well as preferred or desirable qualifications, that are not based on assumptions, but are strictly job related and merit based.
