Why study this course

Top talent will not always find you. You must seek out people to fill the positions that you have open. Recruiting the most qualified candidates will ensure that your employees keep your organisation running smoothly. 

Having a well designed recruitment process helps to increase job satisfaction, reduce wastage of resources, achieve better retention of employees, and improves productivity.

You'll learn critical recruiting skills like how to design a best-practice selection process, setting tangible goals, how to implement new staff orientation and retention, interviewing techniques, and measuring and monitoring the results of your recruitment efforts.
