Open to Senior Hiring Managers, Talent Executives, and Recruiters

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Next week Unitive, the software platform that empowers any company to make consistently great hires, will host their first ever webinar, The REAL way to hire for "fit." The session will walk forward-looking HR professionals on the frontlines of tackling workforce diversity through the do's and don'ts of values-based hiring.

The webinar will explain how aligning hiring practices around company-wide values will consistently yield better, more capable hires and will help build more creative teams. Hiring expert and Unitive staff sociologist Liz Kofman will reveal research on the pitfalls of hiring for "culture" and will discuss what true culture fit means for organizations looking to diversify and strengthen their workforce.

Our webinar will dive deeply into the specifics of incorporating values-based hiring practices into any company's system," said Unitive founder and CEO Laura Mather. "Participants will walk away with actionable strategies for improving hiring processes and building a system which will allow capable and qualified applicants to succeed and thrive."

The more than twenty participants from a range of companies will also get a short demo of Unitive's powerful hiring platform and walk away with a concrete understanding of the next steps needed to truly implement values-based hiring into their hiring process.
