Effective Recruitment and On-boarding


No schedule at the moment

If you have three or more candidates or you would like to run this course as an in-house programme, please contact us.


Successful companies are made up of great employees hence it is imperative to hire the right person for the right position. Hiring the right person is more about skills and abilities; it is about finding the right combination of skills, attitude, and fit for your organisation’s culture. Hiring, training, and bringing new employees on board cost a lot of money and are major investments. Onboarding is a secure investment that will assist newly hired employees in developing and keeping their skills, knowledge, and value within the company.

The workshop will prepare you to seek out that great candidate and make sure they are a fit for your company. You will obtain the necessary tools required in finding that diamond in the rough.
