Help! I need to hire someone – FAST! But – where do you start? And, how do you start? Most of us have made a ‘nightmare hire’ at some point in our career, and we’ve also been sad when a valued employee leaves to move into his/her next career step? The preparation activities that you undertake prior to extending the offer of employment will support you to make the BEST hiring decision possible. Whether you are a solopreneur ready to hire your first employee, or you’re the leader of a larger organization with established team members, making the decision to add to your business has both short and long-term implications for your business success.

The recruitment, selection and hiring of an individual is each a unique process with definite steps which, when employed, will result in better hiring decisions for your business, team relationships and work satisfaction.

We will explore:

    Identifying the tipping point when a recruitment is beneficial to the business
    The essential processes and interview tools used during the recruitment segment of The Employee Lifecycle™
    Defining the selection criteria and processes to evaluate candidates, conduct reference checks, and make the right selection decision
    Understand the importance and application of Employment and Contractor Agreements to manage risk for your employees and your business operations
    Human Resources and business support, including government websites, to support your recruitment and hiring practices
