Successful Recruitment and Induction (Live Online Learning)

Getting the right people in the right seats in a workplace is absolutely key to its success. But so often organisations get it wrong. How do you recruit new members of staff? Are you struggling to find and hire the best candidates?

At Happy, we have developed a different approach to recruitment. Our ethos is all about "hire for attitude, train for skill." We don’t get people to talk about their ability to do the job – we get them to show us what they can do. In this two-hour online workshop, we will share with you Happy’s method of recruiting staff and help you to make your selection process more robust and collaborative. Plus, we will explore what is needed to ensure your new recruits succeed during their probation period.

This course will delivered remotely via Zoom. Happy's Live Online Learning sessions are interactive webinars. The facilitator guides learners through the material, encouraging participation and interaction.

Course Overview

What you will learn:

In most interviews people are tested not on their ability to do a job, but on their ability to talk about it. It is not surprising that a lot of recruitment ends up appointing the wrong people for the job and then not confirming them in probation.

At Happy, we have developed a different approach to recruitment, which we will share with you in this two-hour workshop.

Themes covered

  • Understand the impact of unconscious bias
  • Identify steps to minimise the impact of unconscious bias through looking at case studies
  • Understand the difference between eligibility and suitability
  • Hire for attitude and train for skill
  • Create a range of exercises to really test your applicants’ potential for the job
  • Identify the benefits of collaborative hiring and the steps you can take towards it
  • Establish effective feedback mechanisms to your applicants, so that even unsuccessful applicants are left feeling positive
  • Understand the value of a successful induction
  • Learn to create an induction process that sets your new recruits up to succeed
  • Your personal action plan

If you have five or more learners, a private group event could be cheaper.

The Small Print

All learners will need to install Zoom on their machines. Full technical requirements are on the Zoom website. Your link will be included in your joining instructions once you have booked your place — if you haven't received this email then please contact our team.

Learners should log into the training session 10 minutes before the start time, to ensure that they have downloaded and set up Zoom correctly. The course will start precisely on time and it may not be possible to go back over material missed by late arrivals.

Your active participation is expected: everyone will be heard and seen throughout, just as they would be if we were in a room together. To be heard, hear and seen you will need a microphone, speakers and camera — if you have a modern laptop that’s all you will need. Remember, you’ll need a quiet place to call from and a decent internet connection is a must.

Please ensure you read our Terms and Conditions before booking for our payment terms and cancellation policy.
