In an increasingly noisy marketplace for talent, it’s more important than ever to ensure you have processes in place to hire that ‘right fit’. When a sea of candidates is presented to you, how do you find the best one? What support do you currently have when it comes to narrowing down the perfect employee?
Recruitment mistakes cost UK businesses a pretty penny every year. It’s no surprise that 51% of HR directors admit to not knowing the true cost of a failed hire, particularly when considering not only the loss of salary and investment in that individual, but the loss of team productivity and wider impact on the business.
One thing we are big believers of at The Leadership Academy is the culture catalyst and ensuring businesses are promoting a positive cultural change by hiring the right people, whilst also looking after current staff.
Understanding and developing your talent is about cultural change. We need to develop a mindset in which we recruit for attitude and train for skills, whilst understanding the right attributes that are required for different roles.
That’s where our talent development programmes come in. We don’t just tell you how to hire smarter. We shape our content into a development journey that matches the needs of your business. This could be through white-label training courses, certifying HR directors to deliver certain products, creating online learning resources for your team or facilitating training content in-person or virtually.
