Reduce the Cost of Hiring Standardize your recruitment practices
Anyone can spend time and money recruiting but it takes expertise to
turn a 'hit and miss' approach into a comprehensive project plan that
saves time and money through the gathering and interpreting of recruitment
statistics. Generating and screening a candidate base doesn't have to
be a headache if you follow a few proven guidelines.
Improve Hiring Accuracy Lower the risk of bad hiring decisions
All job applicants will tell you why you should hire them and they will
present only the positive aspects of their backgrounds in the interview.
But it takes expertise to discover why they shouldn't be hired. Conducting
the interview is truly an art. It can be learned through a series of
simple steps yet provide you with a powerful set of interview tools.
Avoid Needless Litigation Know and understand employment law
Recruiting and hiring takes place in a rigorous legal environment. Employment
Acts and Codes have a direct impact on the way you recruit and these
rules and regulations change frequently. In addition, the courts see
employment contractually and employees can sue for damages. You will
have to know and
understand these laws and apply them rigorously to your recruitment
plans and strategies.
