Effective Onboarding & Talent Acquisition
Successful organisations are built on the effective recruitment, selection and onboarding of great candidates. The challenge for many organisations is not about attracting enough candidates but, ensuring that they get those that are right for the job and the culture. Once recruited, it is important that applicants are integrated to the job, team and organisation so that they can be effective as quickly as possible.
Recent research from the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development (CIPD) suggests that skill shortages are escalating and skills needed for jobs are changing - over three-quarters of organisations experienced difficulties in recent recruitment processes. There has also been an increase in employee turnover after some years of decline and more than three quarters of organisations had challenges retaining staff. Interviews remain the most common selection method, although the traditional interview is not considered one of the most valid selection tools.
By the end of this highly interactive programme you will have an understanding of how successful sourcing and onboarding of candidates makes a positive impact on the performance of the organisation. You will understand the link between validity, cost and time of a range of selection methods. It is run by an expert in the field who is not only a Chartered Fellow of the CIPD but also has relevant up-to-date experience so that you can apply the techniques learnt from training to your organisational challenges.
Participants will gain an understanding of how to ensure they get the candidates for the right job and are successfully integrated into the organisational culture. Delegates will learn how to run high validity interviews and how to onboard candidates so that they make a positive impact on the performance of the organisation.
