Course outline

In an effort to provide you with as much value as possible, we’re going to show you how to deliver the key sections of this training course.

We’ve divided this training course content into 3 key steps.

1. Focus on recruitment

You may have an idea about the needs of your target audience, but you’ve got to drill down further and work out what matters most to them.

But by understanding their motivations, you can build a relationship with them.

Ask your audience:

  • What are their jobs?
  • How long have they been there?
  • What recruitment and selection experience do they have?
  • What are their pain points?
  • Where will they use these new skills?

Forming this relationship is critical as it will build trust levels. And, when your audience trusts you, they will be more willing to learn from what you’re sharing.

It just takes a bit of time, but it is not difficult.

You can then use the content provided to explore areas like the selection decision, reliability, validity, and biases in selection.

This section helps your audience feel more connected to the content. And, it will enable them to build more practical skills.

2. Introduce your audience to the recruitment process

Recruitment can be stressful. Especially if a company doesn’t have an effective process.

For corporate training professionals and business managers, this is an opportunity to connect with your audience.

You have already begun to understand what they want, but with this content, you will offer your audience something essential – an effective recruitment process.

And, here’s where it gets really interesting.

With this in mind, use the content to engage in the following simple eight-step recruitment process:

  1. Job analysis.
  2. Source candidates.
  3. The recruitment interview.
  4. Types of interview questions.
  5. Identifying skills.
  6. Psychometric testing.
  7. Reference checking.
  8. Making an offer.

Not only does this content connect your audience to recruitment and selection best practices, but it increases their awareness of an effective process.

3. Learn how to measure recruitment

This section focuses on measuring the effectiveness of all recruitment efforts.

There’s a very simple way to engage your audience: show them how easy it is to measure all recruitment initiatives.

Here’s the breakdown:

  • Hit rate.
  • Hire ratio.
  • Quality of hire.
  • Interview time.
  • Source cost per hire ratios.
  • Interviewing cost.
  • Recruiter effectiveness.
  • Source cost per hire per interview.

If available, share your own perspectives on using measurement within recruitment settings. Your experiences and reflections will make the content more meaningful.
