All Private Service Professionals and Vendor Members in the Washington, D.C., area are invited to the June meeting of the Domestic Estate Managers Association.
This month, Derron McDuffee, of Via Integrity, will present:

“Screening Employees for Character and Integrity”

With years of interviewing experience, Mr. McDuffee will cover the following, and more:

  • Background Checks:  The inherent problems with background checks and how it gives employers a false sense of security will be discussed.

  • Elicitation Techniques:  How an employer asks interview questions will determine if they get useful information from the applicant.  Several question techniques will be discussed during the presentation as well as how the questions categories must be introduced.

  • Learn How to “Read” People:  How do you know if your applicant is lying to you during the job interview?  You will learn what deceptive and truthful behaviors look and sound like.  How our subconscious influences affect our perception of the truth will also be discussed.

Attending your local DEMA meeting is a great way to network with your peers and learn valuable information to help maintain your estate.
