The hiring process has never been more critical for organisations, but poses enormous challenges in the current environment.  Organisations need to attract and retain talent and set up new employees to succeed.   Research shows that 33 percent of employees would not remain in a new position unless well supported through the company’s onboarding process, and that new employees who went through a structured onboarding programme were 58 percent more likely to still be with the organisation after three years.


This programme will equip hiring managers with the necessary skills to be an effective member of the interview panel and conduct competency based interviews in a fair and transparent manner to grow and develop their organisations talent.
