    Detecting Deception in Interviews and Internal Investigations

     Program Details:

    Human Resource professionals have always been faced with making sure that they are not being lied to during the screening and interview process.  We are challenged to be more aware of the backgrounds of our applicants and find it difficult to get meaningful references.

    We are frequently being asked to perform internal investigations regarding harassment, discriminatory behavior, retaliation and employee disputes.

    This program is designed to help HR professionals learn more about detecting signs of deception when we need to make good hiring decisions and “get to the real truth” when we are called on to mediate disputes and conduct investigations.

    Three takeways:

    How to conduct a real background investigation.

    Are there verbal and physical “tells” when someone is lying?

    How to ask simple base questions to help you know if you are being lied to.
