How to Hire the Right Person for your Business

Please Note: Seminar times include lunch

Disrupting a team with a new staff member that just doesn't fit can result in serious team motivation and performance issues., worse still is the chance that the interviewee is either incompetent or dishonest. With South Africa's stringent Labour laws, firing poor performing or unsuitable employees is extremely onerous and potentially costly, so making the right decision in the first place is crucial! This highly practical seminar will teach you how to "read" interviewees and give you guidelines on what questions to ask, and what red flags to look out for, to ensure you only hire the most suitable and qualified candidate.

Managers and supervisors are often promoted for their technical ability and performance, and find their new role challenging as they strive to gain results through others. Unfortunately one of the key management skills that they need to master is often overlooked - and that is the ability to conduct a thorough interview and "read" candidates accurately to ensure only the best candidates are hired.

By attending this practical seminar, you will gain a template to use during interviews that will allow you to accurately and objectively assess each candidate, ensuring that you only hire the most suitable person!


Key elements covered during this half day seminar:

  • Avoiding wasting time on unproductive interviews by learning how to accurately read between the lines of a CV and dismissing unqualified candidates
  • Learning what the candidates' choice of outfit says about them - so you know right off the bat who you are dealing with

  • Gaining a list of revealing questions that you should use during interviews to get to the bottom of any areas of concern
