NEW MEETING TIME AND PLACE! Stonewolf Golf Club, Fairview Heights, Ilinois.  Chapter meetings are held the 2nd Thursday of every month, 4 - 5:15 pm.    

 As much as 80% of employee turnover is due to a bad hiring decision - Harvard Business Review.  The definition of insanity is doing something over and over again and expecting a different result. Yet, when it comes to successfully attracting, selecting, and onboarding the best-fitting candidates, we seem to double down on the same old selection and interview techniques that are not working for us! 

Join us at our next meeting on April 12, 2018, when Amy Leslie, CEO of Perspective Consulting, Inc.,​ will explore hiring practices and the failure rates of hiring predictability and what can we do to improve our odds.
