Module 1
Reduce the Cost of Hiring
Standardize your recruitment practices

Anyone can spend time and money recruiting but it takes expertise to turn a 'hit and miss' approach into a comprehensive project plan that saves time and money through the gathering and interpreting of recruitment statistics. Generating and screening a candidate base doesn't have to be a headache if you follow a few proven guidelines.

Module 2
Improve Hiring Accuracy
Lower the risk of bad hiring decisions

All job applicants will tell you why you should hire them and they will present only the positive aspects of their backgrounds in the interview. But it takes expertise to discover why they shouldn't be hired. Conducting the interview is truly an art. It can be learned through a series of simple steps yet provide you with a powerful set of interview tools.

Module 3
Avoid Needless Litigation
Know and understand employment law

Recruiting and hiring takes place in a rigorous legal environment. Employment Acts and Codes have a direct impact on the way you recruit and these rules and regulations change frequently. In addition, the courts see employment contractually and employees can sue for damages. You will have to know and
understand these laws and apply them rigorously to your recruitment plans and strategies.
