Led by Ana Cláudia Rodrigues, Ana Luisa Martinho, Ana Isabel Couto, Manuel Araújo, CEOS.PP/ISCAP/P.PORTO

The selection process is one of the most important human resources management activities because it is the “entrance door”. Even though professionals in the companies acknowledge that, they believe it is too costly to do it professionally with a specialised firm. As most of the firms in business are SME they often do it internally, not having specifically qualified or trained staff to perform good selection processes. It is also frequent for them to simplify the process, because of the urgency to fill that vacancy. Consequently this leads to hire people, who often stay in the firm for a long time, not being the best the firms could aspire, but they stay, filling the firms with average level professionals. In this workshop we aim to share a gender neutral selection process and its tools to get the best candidates.  Learning Outcomes
  • To present and share gender neutral selection process and its tools developed in the European Project GeNeus
  • To know how to develop a gender neutral selection process
  • To know how to use the tools: competencies test, problem solving exercises, interview script and sample questions, foreign language test, and its’ interpretations, and individual report template
