Recruiting is more than just finding workers to fill jobs. It’s a thoughtful process of attracting, evaluating, and selecting candidates, so you hire someone who’s the “right fit” for your business.
Each person and each business is unique, but there are some solid practices that help you find those “unicorns” who have the right balance of knowledge, experience and personality – and entice them to join your team!
Join us for an interactive workshop to ask your recruiting questions and learn:

How to write a job description that’s accurate, appealing and inclusive
Where to advertise so you have a strong pool of candidates
Tips to shortlist applicants and conduct interviews that will make your decision-making easier
