New Online Course – Sourcing, Selecting, and Securing Talent

xrecruitWe’ve just launched a new online course, Sourcing, Selecting, and Securing Talent by Luciano Anjos!

Globalization and technology have created both opportunities and new challenges for the employment relationship and how employers and employees relate with one another. This holds true for the mining industry that must also deal with challenges such as volatile commodity markets.

While all these challenges can be daunting, the fundamental issues of staffing, orientation, compensation, performance management, etc. remain vital and ongoing factors for organizations to address.

This course looks at the best practices of sourcing, selecting, and securing employees. This course will be of interest to managers and supervisors who work with recruiters to build their teams. This course will also benefit prospective employees to gain a better understanding of this process.

Taking a strategic approach, this course not only focuses on the immediate need to fill a vacancy. It looks at this as the first step in the longer term approach to engage and retain talent. This is achieved by linking the specific HR functions to the achievement of the organization’s goals and strategic objectives.

The course is divided into 3 Parts:

  • Part 1: Recruitment and Selection covers planning the sourcing process to inform potential candidates of the opportunity to generate a sufficiently populated applicant pool of qualified candidates from which to make a selection.
  • Part 2: Orientation and On-Boarding covers the process that starts the employee on the path of becoming a committed and productive employee.
  • Part 3: Compensation covers how this area contributes to engagement and retention.

For more information and to register for certification, see the course homepage.
