Welcome to The ABWA Oceanside Charter Chapter




While many companies believe they have a good hiring process, high turnover and low productivity often say otherwise.  Studies have shown that most hiring processes not only miss top performers, but actually eliminate them.  There is a better way to find people who not only have the right skills, but will be happy and productive working in your company.


Please join us on Tuesday, July 28 to learn how high performing companies are using cutting edge behavioral analytics, combined with effective interviewing techniques to build teams of winners.  During this session you will learn:

  • How to identify the profile of a top performer
  • How to attract candidates
  • How to use analytics to improve the speed and accuracy of your interviewing process
  • How your personal style affects your hiring and management effectiveness
