HR Academy - Recruitment and Selection

Recruitment and Selection

Recruiting to fill a vacant position does take time and energy, but remember that you are selecting someone to join your work team. You want to find someone who has the knowledge, skills, and abilities to benefit the team and further your agency's goals. It's important to get it right!

On the flip side, it can be extremely costly - both in time and in money - if you don't recruit and select the candidate correctly. The U.S. Department of Labor estimates the average cost of a bad hiring decision can be as much as 30% of the individual's first-year potential earnings. Consider a bad hire making $40,000 per year; that adds up to $12,000 lost. Not only that, a bad hire can have a negative effect on your current workforce; you certainly don't want that.

This training is intended to provide you with our HR best-practice recommendations for the recruiting and selection process so you can ensure your agency's practices are effective and legally compliant. We will review each step of the recruiting and selection process to ensure you choose the best candidates for your job openings.

**For those attending this session, we ask that each attendee bring a JDQ (Job Duty Questionnaire) and JDAQ (Job Duty Analysis Questionnaire) for a position they might advertise in the coming months. We will conduct an exercise where data from those documents are used in the training session.
