About Chris Kunze:
0:50 – 154:25 – Many businesses engage in discriminatory practices or unreliable hiring practices that prevent unproductive employees from being hired. Chris Kunze will tell us how the use of data can help improve a company’s employee retention rate. He has helped hundreds of companies across the country by providing them with customized and interactive applications that have the greatest validity. Certified consultant and navigating psychometric testing. Chris states that the psychometric model is able to detect hidden and latent traits the interviewers do not often spot, which allows the company to make more accurate personnel decisions.
17:24 – 31:06 – When using statistics, typically this is done for a company with a minimum of at least ten employees in the same role. In the past, more people would have been needed but with modern advanced analytics there is greater statistical power with fewer people. Good communication between Human Resources and frontline Managers allow Chris’ company to collect useful performance data and create an accurate model. It is very important that companies are mindful of who they promote to a team leader position so that fairness and job relatedness is tied to their personnel decisions. Not only are these people responsible for who is promoted and included, depending on their biases they may exclude candidates and prevent capable employees from receiving certain training.
33:48 – 44:58 – Eric notes that the psychometric test seems to have a personality model and asks if they are connected to other known personality tests. Chris believes that those tests are good for understanding an employee but not ideal for screening employees, other models are used for screening. With AI technology, they are able to apply multiple performance metrics to the application process and make sure that they are compatible. Chris emphasizes the importance of the human element when utilizing this technology. A human being is able to make sense of it, apply the most useful metrics, and customize the applications for each company.
47:15 – 57:30 – In the midst of this pandemic, some biased managers have utilized this pandemic to let go of employees that they did not work well with despite their high performance, others will have to adjust to a growing demand from remaining employees to remain home. The relationship between employers and employees is changing dramatically throughout this pandemic. Chris notes that in the past companies have let go a lot of employees then overworked their remaining employees without compensation. Chris explains the six step method his company Kunze Analytics uses to help employers open up their applicant pool.

About Employment Law Today
Helping Business With Employment Law Issues.
For many business owners, it can be overwhelming to keep up and comply with the federal and state labor and employment laws that govern how they run their business. With the COVID-19 pandemic, there are new laws and regulations regarding hiring, firing, and workplace practices and protocols — all of which can increase business owners’ anxieties about regaining traction or thriving again. On my weekly show, we will be discussing the most common employment law related questions and challenges that business owners have been facing in these uncertain times.
The show will have three main goals: (1) to inform businesses about employment law updates, (2) to inspire businesses by giving them the tools to move forward, and (3) to demonstrate how some business owners have overcome their employment law problems, walked through the challenges imposed by this pandemic, and have taken steps to regain traction during the reopening phases of this pandemic.
Our guests will include professionals who advise businesses from an H.R., legal, and financial perspective, along with thriving business owners who will share their experiences and insights into running a successful company while complying with labor and employment law mandates during COVID-19.
