Customers who’ve deployed our training to their hiring manager and interviewing teams

Hiring managers, interviewers, and recruiting teams watched 6,223,838 minutes of our content online last year
and over 3 million minutes last quarter.

“The feedback was incredible. I really don’t think I’ve ever seen or heard of such a great rollout of training. We added some content ourselves but primarily this was your content and it was so, so, well received. Thanks so much for the effort put in to get us here. Here’s to a better interview experience for our candidates!”

Does this recruitment training for hiring managers
focus on diversity? Yes!

“We built a ‘License to Hire’ program for our hiring managers. We wanted to augment our own best practices with thought leadership external to IBM, so we leveraged content created by John Vlastelica, one of my favorite facilitators and thought leaders, into our training. We’ve already deployed it to over 17,000 people. We use NPS to measure effectiveness, and have received amazing feedback so far.”

Hiring managers and interviewers focused on white collar roles in a corporate environment are the primary audience. There’s good content in here for recruiters and HR professionals, as well, but if you want content built just for recruiting teams, please check out our online recruiter training page.
Each episode is about 3-6 minutes. There is a core 1-hour training that many clients start with for hiring managers or interviewers, and then there’s additional content – broken out by level 1, 2, 3 – that goes much deeper. Because you can customize your learning journey by role, you get to determine how long the training is for each user-type. There is 7 hours of total content, including 1.5 hours worth of content focused on diversity for hiring managers. Most clients set learning goals of 30-60 minutes per month.

It might not be cost effective if you only want 1 hour of total content. Overall, this is not a basic training – the total content has level 1, 2, and 3 training, where level 3 is quite advanced.

You can engage Recruiting Toolbox to help you build custom content.  Contact us to learn more. 

Yes, we can use our online training as a foundation, and then build custom, offline, live training to create something more interactive, with small breakout group discussions, paired practice, and live Q&A – all critical if you’re trying to drive real behavior change.  We can also build custom guides –interviewing guides tied to your competency models, for example – to complement the online training.
