By the end of this session, you will know the components of a recruitment plan and how to implement it. The first step will be to identify the knowledge, skills and attributes that are required to succeed in this role and to clearly incorporate these into the job posting.
By identifying "must have" and "nice to have" qualifications, you will be able to eliminate those candidates who don't meet the must have requirements. You will learn strategies to screen applications based strictly on the job criteria and how to avoid implicit bias in the hiring process. Finally, you will learn recruiting best practices, so your hiring practices are fair to all candidates.
Why you should Attend
Many managers are being tasked with assessing employees for new opportunities in the organization or for hiring external candidates to meet organizational staffing needs.
Unfortunately, managers may not have training or experience with recruiting and hiring practices. This session is designed to help front-line managers plan an effective, fair competition and to screen applications to find the best candidates for the role.
As a hiring manager, you may receive countless applications for every job posting, but of course you have limited time to screen them to find the most promising candidates.
The good news is that there are strategies and best practices that can ensure that you are effectively promoting the role and choosing the best candidates to proceed to an interview.
