Why Attend

Pressure on recruitment and selection units in organizations seems to be constant if not increasing with time. More is required with less. More effective and new recruitment channels have become a necessity now that branding techniques and use of technology is no longer a choice. The diversification of commonly used selection methodologies has become essential to improve the reliability of selection decisions and improve the quality of hires. Moreover, performance measures and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) have become standard in measuring the reliability and effectiveness of recruitment and selection within organizations. This course is designed, and constantly amended, to explore these topics. It is designed from an operational and cultural perspective and is expected to enable participants to build a holistic approach towards their activities and introduce system changes.
