    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.

But how do you find the right  people to perform in an environment of frequent change?

Our guest this episode was at or near the centre of the  projects that orchestrated our transformation from then to now.

    Virtual Leadership

    Virtual Leadership

    Telework remains a contentious issue in the public service. Some  groups use it extensively. Others grant it only in extreme circumstances  and for limited periods of time, requiring proof of need in order to  prolong the arrangement, because after all, how can you manage people  you can't see? And how could a manager ever possibly consider  teleworking?
