The question is, are they tackling the hiring process in the best way? Hiring for effective change management is challenging and this module will help you reflect on your practices at each of the critical stages involved.

4 Steps of Recruitment
1.Defining the job
What is required for the role, what will the successful candidate have to do? Define the job first, rather than the candidate’s attributes.
2. Searching for candidates
Widening the net, leveraging referrals appropriately, and treat recruitment as a marketing exercise which is the responsibility of the whole team
3. Interviewing effectively
Exploring reactions and behaviors as well as competencies and managing your impression on candidates (Learn more about STAR Interview Questions)
….Or not hiring and managing rejecting unsuccessful candidates respectfully. Keep in mind: No matter how urgent a role is, don’t compromise on hiring quality. It’ll backfire.
