Growing Your Team: An Introduction to Recruitment & Selection Essentials

Date: Thu 25 November 2021
Time: 9:00AM - 4:30PM
Where: Humber View Hotel, North Ferriby

This workshop provides an introduction into what recruitment and resourcing involves.

It describes the stages of the recruitment process: defining the role, including job analysis and job description; attracting the applicants using both internal and external methods; taking into consideration the importance of talent pipelines and utilising funding; managing the selection process; and, finally, making the appointment and employment offer.

Your employees are a vital part of determining the success of your business. Finding the best employees for each position requires strong recruitment strategies. Top talent will not always find you. You must seek out people to fill the positions that you have open.

Having a well-designed recruitment process will streamline your recruiting efforts and keep you on track to find the best people for your organisation. Using simple techniques like clearly defined roles and pre-interview screening can help save time and identify those “A-Players” who will contribute most to the success of the business. We’ll also share the Top 11 recruiting pitfalls to avoid.

Run by Kate van der Sluis of Humber HR People this workshop will also explore the importance of employer branding and the candidate experience and the impact this can have on how successful your recruiting campaign will be, especially in the current climate.
