Recruiting, Selecting Staff & Induction

Recruiting, Selecting Staff & Induction

Finding and retaining the right person for a role and for future contribution/potential is identified as one of the most important contributions you can make to your organisation. It is also an increasing difficult challenge! With an unemployment rate of 4% (2008 ABS), there is an acknowledged skills shortage. Combine this factor with the need for flexibility in an ever changing work environment and it is clear that knowing how to recruit, select and support staff are critical skills for every professional.

There are vital stages to consider when you are investing in a recruitment process. Whether targeting for junior or senior roles; internal or external recruitment; positions in the private or public sector - establish the best chance of hiring talent for your organisation by focusing your skills.
