Event Synopsis

We hear a lot about competency based recruitment methods but what do you know about values based recruitment? 

In this seminar our event partners Hays Recruitment will explore Values Based Recruitment and aim to answer and explore the following:

  • What is Values Based Recruitment?
  • What are the key differences between values based and competency based recruitment?
  • Exploring examples of VBR Interview questions and activities, and whether VBR can effectively assess the behaviours and values of an applicant and whether they are inline with those of the organisation;
  • What are the psychometric tools to use to measure and compare cultural fit?

All of our branch events are organised by volunteers who give up their time freely to provide CPD opportunities for others in North Yorkshire, events are funded through branch funds, and our speakers (who at most receive expenses only) give up their time freely to prepare and present their sessions. With this in mind, if you do book on an event and find you’re no longer able to attend – please email and give your apologies to those involved with the event – we really do appreciate this, especially in advance where possible as this might allow us to avoid catering wasteage, but if it’s an unavoidable last minute cancellation we’d still like to hear from you.
