Industrial and Organizational Psychologist to Offer Insight Into Aligning Hiring Solutions With Company Culture and Values; Complimentary White Paper on Assessment Provider Selection

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO--(Marketwire - Dec 16, 2011) - Leanne Buehler, PhD, director of experience solutions for Corvirtus, will be the featured speaker in a live webcast presented by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). The webcast, "Hire with Precision: The Science of Identifying the Right Match," will take place on Tuesday, December 20, at 2:00 -3:00 p.m. ET.

The free webcast is part of SHRM's member education program and qualifies for PHR and SPHR recertification credit. SHRM members can register at: http://www.shrm.org/multimedia/webcasts/Pages/1211buehler.aspx. As a complement to the presentation, Corvirtus offers a free white paper, "10 Considerations for Selecting the Right Assessment Provider," available to SHRM members and non-members.

"In today's tight job market, many organizations are bombarded with applicants," said Dr. Buehler. "Increasingly, HR organizations -- particularly those in the retail, food service and hospitality industries -- are turning to assessments to efficiently identify qualified candidates. While standard assessments can be helpful for determining whether a candidate has the basic skills for the job, these tests fail to determine whether a candidate has unique characteristics that will make him or her a good fit with company culture. As a result, companies still struggle with new hire performance and retention," she said.

In this webcast, Dr. Leanne Buehler will show that with a disciplined and focused approach to assessments and supporting tools, tied closely to the company's mission and values, organizations can accurately predict whether or not a candidate is the right fit. Included in the webcast will be strategies for aligning the hiring process with organizational culture, examples of companies using scientific assessments to their strategic advantage, and tips on how HR organizations can influence the effort to define and build company culture and hire employees who are the right match.

Dr. Buehler has worked with companies of all sizes on hiring, retention and development projects, including the implementation and rollout of million-dollar hiring solutions. Her clients have included global cruise brand Royal Caribbean International; Cycle Gear, America's largest specialty retailer of motorcycle parts, apparel and accessories; and Smokey Bones, the nationwide restaurant and bar. She is an expert in employee selection, development, engagement, competency modeling, performance management, leadership and training.

Dr. Buehler contributed to the white paper, "10 Considerations for Selecting the Right Assessment Provider," available to SHRM members and non-members. The white paper discusses what HR executives should expect related to areas such as assessment objectivity, validity, results, and support -- and also provides questions for potential vendors on topics such as technical competence, contextual performance, and candidate experience.
