Employers Guide to Recruitment


People are vital to the success of any organisation. It has been shown repeatedly that poor recruitment practices results in high labour turnover and absenteeism, with a consequent increase in costs. If the right people are recruited in the first place, they are likely to stay, fit into your organisation and work to optimum effect.


If the wrong people are recruited, they will either leave or engage in unsatisfactory behaviours or conduct, which means that you will have to manage them out of the business. This is time consuming and in itself carries risks.


This course will help you to recruit effectively, avoiding the common pitfalls. It sets out the legal requirements applicable during the recruitment process as well as the best practices and some useful hints and tips to help you recruit the right person for the job, saving you time, money and effort.
