Our mission is to nurture a peer-based community of industry experts dedicated to learning and development through collaboration.

Recruiting & Selection Strategies is part of the CPIA Webinar Series.

There are signs everywhere – Hiring Now! This past year we’ve seen record numbers of people leaving their jobs; and we are currently experiencing a low number of applicants. Hiring committed and skilled talent is imperative for business growth. Employers are having to get more creative with their sourcing methods and also ensure they have objective and consistent processes for evaluating and selecting candidates.

Thoughtful organizations and leaders build strategy around acquiring talent to meet both current and future business needs. Having a clear sense of the strengths and opportunities within your team will allow you to make a more calculated decision about your next hire. And while there is no exact science for guaranteeing the perfect hire, you can improve your chances of hiring right the first time through a well-planned and executed process.

In this webinar, attendees will learn to:

• Identify talent acquisition strategies based on business needs and objectives;
• Implement techniques to fairly and objectively assess skills and commitment; and
• Establish a standardized interview and evaluation process.
