Hire Better, Retain Better
GRA Georgia Restaurant Association
Art spoke to the Members of the Georgia Restaurant Assocation on March 22, 2005 to call for a talent upgrade in the hospitality industry. Startling statistics about the reality and risks of losses generated by turnover, poor hiring, absenteeism, and counterproductive behaviors by employees in the hospitality industry demand solutions. Citing a number of recent surveys and studies, Mr. Schoeck demonstrated the pervasiveness and cost of cash/product theft, alcohol/drug abuse, anti-diversity, disrespect for others, sexual harassment, unreliability, and food handling violations. While those who engage in one counterproductive behavior are actually more likely to engage in several, the employees who are productive tend to be so "across the board."
Pre-Employment Selection Tools
Georgia Safety, Health and Environmental Conference, GA Dept of Labor
Art spoke at the 2004 Georgia Safety, Health and Environmental Conference for the Georgia Dept. of Labor Safety Engineering Division. The presentation, given at the Gwinnett Center in Duluth on October 12, 2004, explained how to use pre-employment assessments to lower labor costs and increase safety. The most effective applications of advanced tools for drug testing, attitudes, style, and surveying were presented. The proper use of these tools in hiring and assessing current employees increase safety and cut costs - a savings that can then be used for higher wages and benefits, resulting in more satisfied and motivated employees.
Performance Management: The Key to More Effective Performance Evaluations
In November of 2000, Mr. Schoeck spoke at the YMCA (Young Mens Christian Association) Forum 2000 in San Francisco on the topic of how to make the performance evaluation process useful in actually improving performance. Effectiveness is not based on the length of a survey or process but on clearly-defined objectives and action plans. The more effective evaluations consider personal, team, and organizational levels in which performance is defined in concrete terms of optimal tasks, goals, motivations, priorities and behaviors. While more complicated job positions require more complex information, using the best practices with the most advanced tools will always give you the best and most useful information.
Enhancing the Use of Selection and Retention Assessments
Art Schoeck spoke for The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) at their Greater Atlanta Chapter Meeting, held on August 7, 2000.

Mr. Schoeck addressed the latest techniques and technologies in hiring and retaining the "right people" - from defining job competencies to strategizing the roles of personal values and motivations. He shared how organizations can actually increase compensation and benefits while at the same time reduce overall labor costs. Attendees left with an understanding of how selection, retention and motivation come together in one seamless process.
