Your people are your most important resource so getting the right people is essential. Recruitment can be one of the most time consuming and costly tasks of running a business.

But, how do you assess if someone is right for your organisation?

We start from the very beginning in this course, defining your requirements, and take you all the way through to the legal requirements of making an offer of employment and the risks and issues of rejecting candidates.

From there we look at the benefits of having a clear, detailed and effective induction process, essential in making sure that your new recruit feels welcome.

This course is CPD certified.
