Recruiting Talent


Recruitment is a costly investment for any business. It’s also high risk. The cost of a bad hire is not just time and money, it also negatively affects team morale and organisational culture.

Yet despite this high cost and high risk, companies rarely provide their managers with training in how to recruit new staff!

Without due consideration of all the factors and legal requirements involved in the recruitment and selection process, managers often hire based on how well a candidate presents themselves, or on gut instinct. This can often lead to later regrets.

RECRUITING TALENT takes a holistic, team-based approach to the effective recruitment and onboarding of new staff.
