This workshop provides effective sources for recruitment as well as selection methods to hire the right candidates crucial to meeting manpower needs


Recruitment and Selection system and practices is the cornerstone of human resource function. This is because without the right talent, sourced and selected with the appropriate methods, no other functions in the organisation can operate at the optimal level. Thus it is critical that line managers and human resource practitioners acquire a good knowledge and skills to sharpen their ability to seek and select the right employees in terms of behaviour, skills and competencies. Job description, derived from job analysis, is a business tool as it helps the organisation to hunt for talent of different profiles and to reward and develop them accordingly to meet the business requirements. Without hiring right, all subsequent human resource activities are not aligned.

Therefore it is important that HR practitioners as business partners and hiring line managers be equipped with the knowledge and skills to write a good job description to use it to match and hire the potential employees with the skills needed to support business goals and objectives. Organisations that implement proper job descriptions are able to align their talent recruitment to business since employees will be suitably sourced and chosen to match their needs and the organisation.

The objective of this program is to provide participants with an in-depth treatment of job current recruitment and selection systems and techniques. Through the practical exercises adopted during the training, participants will learn how the effective sources of recruitment as well as the contemporary selection methods to hire the right candidates are crucial to meeting business needs for manpower.
