Recruiting Strategies to Hire the Best Candidate
Recruiting in today’s fast paced, global economy is not the same as it was even five years ago. With constant competition, identifying the right candidate is far more difficult than writing up an ad based on a job description and hiring someone that has most of those skills. And research has shown the high costs of filling a position as well as leaving it open. Developing a clear, deliberate strategy to hire the best candidate instead of “a candidate” has become increasingly important.
In this course, we’ll review best practices in acquiring talent without wasting resources. We’ll focus on what it means to hire for cultural fit and discuss the interview process. Building a strategy to maximize a return on recruiting investments is imperative. Educate and guide your management team by learning how to hire the best and save your organization a great deal of time and money.
