About the course

Introduction

Selection is the process of choosing the right talent - individuals with the right skills, competencies, attitude, qualifications.

It is about assessing three key aspects -

  • Can the individual do the job
  • Will he / she do the job
  • How well will the person fit in

“Hire tough, manage easy.” - It is true that the amount of time, effort and energy that you put into the hiring process may make management of your new employees much less difficult because many problems will be eliminated up front during the selection process.
