Overview of the webinar

Employees are the backbone of the organization. Keeping that backbone strong and straight requires assuring quality applicants are recruited, hired, and retained. The first step is to fully understand the true cost of turnover and how that affects the company. The second step is recruiting practices should attract targeted groups that will bring desirable knowledge, skills, and abilities to the table. Assuring a selected applicant’s interest and acceptance of an employment offer requires marketing and finesse. Understanding what employees really want and then making efforts to provide appropriate benefits is essential. Initially, you may think money is the motivating factor; however, high-performing employees are searching for something more than just a high salary. Today’s workforce desires flexibility in their job and balance in their life. Employees want a challenging job where they are motivated, engaged with incentives and rewards that make sense, and shown respect and appreciation. Developing a staffing strategy that is effective and compliant will produce cost-savings and profitable results.

This presentation covers staffing strategies from the start of a job vacancy to the beginning of an employee’s engagement with your company. Areas that will be reviewed include why it is important to invest time and effort from the very beginning of the recruitment process, and how to do so. We will also review compliance practices during the whole life of the process in order to help you decrease perceptions of discrimination and potential litigation results. Items covered will span the time from pre-recruiting, recruiting, interviewing, selection, and the job offers.

With the high cost of turnover and the minimal number of qualified applicants available, fine tuning your staffing strategies and practices is a critical time saver, risk reduction, and will lead to a successful experience.

With this resource-loaded, fast-paced, and relatable course, you will receive tools, tips, and techniques to use to successfully lead your team. By the conclusion of this training, you will have actionable items and tools to implement the learning objectives and achieve sustained success.
