    Predictive Hiring

    Predictive Hiring

    How do you hire the right person for the job? In our federal public  service, the conventional method demands that applicants use a rigid  format, using specific keywords to map their education, skills and  experience onto a defined list of essential and merit criteria. Canada's  Free Agents went another way, assessing applicants against a set of  behavioural characteristics, to great success. Our guest this episode  says that whatever process we try to implement, in the end, it all comes  down to first impressions.

    Consensus Hiring and Surge Teams

    A Surge Team is a group of employees with no ongoing files. Instead,  they exist to tackle priority initiatives identified by Deputy Ministers  and other senior government officials. The assignments are time  sensitive, complex and innovative, and as such, depend on employees  suited to this type of dynamic work. But how do you find the right  people to perform in an environment of frequent change?

A window into the reality of government innovation

I'm hooked; learning about how things really work (or really don't) is fascinating. It could be scary, but instead it's incredibly inspiring. Can't wait for more.

Great podcast

Super informative on a variety of innovative ideas - makes the vague term “innovation” seem more real and not just a nonsense buzzword!
