Short Course Description
The course is designed to give the participants a depth of understanding of recruitment and selection processes and their impact on building affective organizations since the success of the organization depend on the quality of the people working in it.
Organizations have recruitment needs arising from business expansion that creates a need for additional workers, specific employee departures or employee turnover, changes in the company's business activities that require a different mix of employees in terms of work experience and abilities, etc.
The demand for workers initiates recruitment processes that start with a deep understanding of the job requirements , future changes , the need for teamwork or managing in a matrix environment and the implications of these factors in terms of the range of experience and capabilities required . Understanding recruitment needs for the organization and the required candidate characteristics leads to defining the potential sources of candidates and different approaches to identify potential candidates including internet, employment agencies and internal resourcing.
Identifying potential candidates raises the need to choose the most appropriate employee through a variety of selection tools including job interviews, cognitive and personality tests, simulations etc. The selection results enables an informed choice from a pool of candidates and the process ends with the construction of effective on-boarding processes.
The course will focus on each of these stages in the recruitment process based on work processes in leading organizations with advanced recruitment and selection systems and the academic knowledge that provides the research foundation for selecting effective processes in this area.
