Your Great is Average: PI Worldwide to Host Webinar on Talent Acquisition Lessons Learned from HR Professionals

Findings to be presented from recent hiring and retention survey

Jul 21, 2015, 08:30 ET from PI Worldwide

WELLESLEY, Mass., July 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- PI Worldwide, a company that empowers businesses to truly understand what drives workplace behaviors, today announced it will host a webinar on Wednesday, July 29, 2015 that explores the results of their recent talent acquisition and retention trends survey.

The survey – which looked at the way employers find, manage and keep their employees – uncovered several key findings including an obvious disconnect when it comes to  human resource departments' ability to hire the right people. When asked what they excel at as part of the survey, the group overwhelmingly reported that they excel most in hiring the right talent. However, there's a difference between this perception and reality.  According to a study by Leadership IQ, 46% of newly-hired employees will fail within 18 months. Gallup also recently released a report stating that 82 percent of management hires fail.

Join PI Worldwide's Greg Barnett, Ph.D. and Matt Poepsel, Ph.D. for this live session as they explore key findings including:

  • A review of the recent PIWW survey results and the implications they have on talent acquisition (sourcing, selecting, and onboarding)
  • The disconnect between human resource's perception and the realities related to hiring
  • Practical tips you can use to increase retention and performance of new-hires from day one
