    This training program will cover the interviewing and hiring process in six steps: understanding the organization’s culture, conducting a job analysis, developing behavior-based interview questions, recruitment strategies, interviewing and selection, and HR onboarding.

Why Should You Attend?

    When you rush to hire someone simply to get the job done, or when you focus only on technical skills and not on whether someone will fit your organizational culture, you will no doubt see turnover shortly after your hire. This costs time and money, and causes frustration among employees and managers surrounding that position. It is important to hire the right person the first time.
