About this webinar

(Originally on Thursday 10th December)

Join Instant Impact and a panel of experts to learn how to make hiring decisions based on the potential of a candidate, and the likelihood that they'll succeed at your company.

There's mounting evidence showing that the specific experience is much less predictive of their in-role performance than previously assumed.

This pandemic has taught us that, to thrive in our rapidly changing workplace, we need to be agile and adapt. It's often most important to be able to learn quickly, after all, skills can be picked up but drive, motivation and personality cannot be taught.

Making hiring decisions based on a candidate's qualities and characteristics allows us to tap into more diverse talent pools, different industries, and candidates that would previously have been overlooked.

This interactive session covers everything from the benefits of shifting your mindset to methodologies that you can adopt to be successful.

Who should watch: 

  • HR Directors
  • Hiring Managers
  • Recruitment Directors

Roger Philby

Founder, The Chemistry Group

Roger has spent the past 25 years dedicated to creating brilliant careers, to create brilliant organisations.

Today, talent is being wasted due to poor decisions, based on uninformed, inconsistent and biased information. As a result, talent is not being accurately identified and connected to the right opportunity; limiting the potential of people and holding back organisations.

Roger has created innovative and award-winning approaches to how some of the world’s largest companies recruit and develop their workforces, including SAP, Co-Op and the NHS. He was part of “the biggest turnaround in UK business history”, running recruitment for Energis Communications.

Chemistry is changing the way global organizations think about people selection, enabling them to find and hire the right people for them at scale. Most importantly, they're giving everyone the opportunity to be brilliant.
