Recruiting right first time? Raising your chance of success 29th August 07.30 – 08.45

“Many small business owners find recruitment a painful experience, and it can be costly when you end up with the wrong person (typically figures of around £30,000 minimum can be the cost through lost sales, poor service, errors, management time and so on).  This workshop-based session will explore what it is you need to be looking for in new recruits, by defining more precisely what excellence would look like in that role.  Ideally if we can have real examples of anyone looking to recruit a new role (or perhaps have recently done so), then we can use that as a case study.  The outcomes are a different way of thinking about what you’re looking for, and so giving you a better chance to recruit right first time”

Venue: Orange Square. The Broadway. Haywards Heath.

Price: HHDBA members £10. Non members £15. This includes a drink and a full English breakfast.
