Certificate in Recruitment, Interviewing and Selection Process


Certificate in Recruitment, Interviewing and Selection Process

Part of the 8 Gems of Human Capital Business Partnering (HCBP)
(Accredited by IBHE – the Illinois Board of Higher Education, USA)

Did you know that the total cost of poor selection for one person can reach as much as $107,970* / year or more?

So what does it really cost when job specifications and personnel forecasts are inaccurate? On the other hand, how will a well-selected and better motivated work force enable your organization to grow this year? How will things change if you have the right person in the right position?

Imagine if your company strictly hired those who have the competencies required for the job, the motivational fit for the job and culture of the organization, as well as the desire to contribute to the success of the organization as a whole. This three-day workshop will give you the confidence and skill to make better selection and placement decisions for new and existing employees. You will take away effective techniques and strategies which will enable you to make faster, more accurate and better targeted choices when it comes to people.
