How do you know when someone is being less than truthful? Body language, tone of voice, and choice of words are some of the best indicators. We’ll discuss this and more through the use of pants-on-fire video footage. We’ll also discuss what to do when you suspect your witness, employee, or manager is lying to you. This presentation will provide attendees the tools they need to recognize, describe, and manage employee deception, a skill that is useful in all aspects of HR work, but particularly talent acquisition and management, employee development, and internal investigations.



  • Understand why, as an HR professional, it's important to trust your gut
  • Learn how to spot employee deception by interpreting body language and verbal cues
  • Learn what to do when you determine that an employee is being less than truthful
