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.

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.
