  • About This Course
    Selecting and recruiting staff is one of the most important activities that businesses carry out, but it’s often badly managed. This is because people can be too quick to sift through applications without an appropriate selection process or struggle with formulating a shortlist. If you’ve been given the responsibility of recruiting within your company but aren’t quite sure how you should go about it, this is the course for you. Selecting the Right Person examines how you can assess applicants impartially and efficiently, whilst providing guidelines on how to conduct effective and structured interviews as part of the selection process. With the help of Selecting the Right Person, you’ll find that the recruitment process has never been easier.
