How Do I Recruit The Best?
Fri, June 16, 2017, 9:30 AM – 2:00 PM BST
About the workshop
Getting good staff is a perpetual problem for managers. In some disciplines like software engineering, there just aren’t enough good engineers in the labour market. In others like marketing, there are plenty of candidates and this places a huge strain on managers to select for the right skills.
This problem of how to recruit the best is not going to abate any time soon.
Who’s this workshop aimed at?
SME managers in science, technology and engineering who find it challenging to find high quality staff.
What will you learn?
Valid, tangible and immediately applicable information and methods to enable you to recruit the best.
What’s the workshop style?
A small group of managers from science, technology and engineering sharing the problem but encouraged and enabled by five short presentations.
