Why do I need this training?
Getting recruitment right is critical to ensure you recruit the right people for the success of the business. It’s essential that any recruitment process is fair, consistent and complies with legal requirements including discrimination law. Whether recruitment is internal or external, there are many pitfalls for the unwary manager. Implementing a robust recruitment process can help to reduce the chance of complaints and employment tribunal claims. It will also help ensure a diverse workforce which promotes equality of opportunity and in turn drives business success by attracting good staff and enabling them to fulfil their potential.
The seminar will firstly consist of exploring the issues. There will be an equality and diversity overview where you will develop your knowledge of the protected characteristics and the key legal concepts which relate to recruitment. We will help you understand the legal implications at each stage, helping to bring the issues to life through real cases and interactive questions, before sharing best practice with you in relation to the recruitment process.
We will then run a practical workshop using case study questions so you can apply your knowledge from the previous session to different scenarios and interact in group discussions.
