Effective recruitment, selection and on-boarding

“Recruiting should be viewed as business partner, someone who is critical to the success of the business.”

Employing the right person for your business might be the most important part of your project. An effective recruitment and selection process reduce turnover. These processes match up the right person with the right job skills. Therefore, it all starts and ends there. Onboarding is a prime opportunity for employers to win the hearts and minds of new employees. Do not waste it, experts say. Onboarding is a magic moment when new employees decide to stay engaged or become disengaged.
