The module takes a highly practical overview of the key steps and options in the recruitment process, including: Job design, advertising, recruiters, interviews, assessments, job previews and other techniques, databases, making the appointment, contracts of employment and so forth. As technology has increased the range of options to reach candidates, both recruiters and candidates are often overwhelmed and make poor choices. Simultaneously organisations are increasingly defining recruiting skill as a strategically valuable part of talent mix.
This module is therefore about getting the basics right. The module covers the range of recruiting & interview techniques and issues flowing from them, on-boarding, job trials and employment contracts.
Key topics covered include:
Labour market theory and competitive advantage
Identifying top performers
Understanding the recruitment industry
