    Course Description

    Too many organisations make too many mistakes when hiring new people. Worse still, the same interview mistakes recur and recur. Our course is designed to enhance interviewing skills for interviewers and enable them to identify and hire the best talent. This course helps participants navigate around new challenges in the selection process. You’ll also learn some new loyalty and retention techniques. Let’s look at your onboarding procedures too.

    Sometime people get too caught up in the process rather than thinking through the candidate’s abilities and fit with your organisation. The workshop is an opportunity to reflect on what has worked well and what hasn’t. Course participants are then introduced to new skills and tools that they can use in selecting, retaining and onboarding. The course was designed by an organisational psychologist.
