How to attract and recruit high performers
The increasing competition for talent is set to get tougher as baby boomers continue to leave the work force. As a result there has been increased pressure to become an employer of choice. But what does that really mean? Often this means different things to each employee and has pushed employee benefits higher without necessarily realising greater productivity to the organisation.
The end result is that many organisations oversell what the job involves including the terms and conditions. Too often this leads to a disillusioned new employee and a disappointed manager who isn't getting from their staff what they are paying for. The cost of poor recruitment is enormous; the advertising and placement time, the time taken to get up to full speed, let alone the impact on the workplace.
In this course you will learn the skills and techniques needed to overcome the most common recruitment mistakes.
- Common recruitment mistakes
- Understanding the current labour market
- The power of position descriptions and job analysis
- Developing an employment value proposition
- Sourcing quality candidates

By the end of the course you will be able to successfully:
- Understand how to reduce the organisation’s risk of discrimination or adverse action claims
- Conduct a job analysis to review a position and develop a position description
- Prepare and advertise a vacancy to attract the right candidates
- Manage applicants professionally
- Prepare for and conduct effective interviews
- Ensure they select the best fit for the role with the greatest likelihood of intrinsic motivation
