Recruitment, Selection and Retention


Overview

Gain the relevant expertise to recruit, select and retain the right people for your organisation.

Business need

An organisation is nothing without its people. Recruiting people who are wrong for the organisation can lead to performance issues, grievances, increased costs, and lowering of morale in the existing workforce. Such people are likely to be disengaged, unlikely to give of their best, and end up leaving voluntarily or involuntarily when their unsuitability becomes evident.

Employers want to ensure that they are acting legally and have a responsibility to ensure that no unlawful discrimination occurs in the recruitment and selection process.

We will take you through all you need to know about how to recruit the people with right skills, behaviours and capabilities for your organisation. From planning your resourcing requirements and creating job adverts through to recruiting using social media, shortlisting and preparing for interviews. This course covers the entire process including how to induct and retain new employees once they arrive within your workplace.

This full day course includes interactive workshops where delegates will have the chance to discuss and reflect upon their own recruitment experiences and embed what they have learnt in a safe environment.

All delegates will receive an electronic certificate of attendance for their participation in the training.
