Recruitment and Selection Training Reviews:

"Liked how the trainer used one big case study instead of breaking it up into mini case studies as outlined in the manual."

"Troy's personal experience in recruitment really helped to make the content understandable and relatable."


-UQ Sport


 

"Good presenter who was able to convey abstract concepts clearly and with good activities. I learned a lot about myself and the theories can equally be applied to day to day management, and even personal relationships."


"The course was great and I really enjoyed the environment built by the trainer."

Foreword:

Your employees are a vital part of determining the success of your business. Finding the best employees for each position requires strong recruitment strategies. Top talent will not always find you. You must seek out people to fill the positions that you have open. Recruiting the most qualified candidates will ensure that your employees keep your company running smoothly.

 

Having a well designed recruitment process will streamline your recruiting efforts and keep you on track to find the best people for your organisation. Using simple techniques like multi-person interviews and pre-interview screening can help save time and identify those "A-Players" who will contribute most to the success of the business.

In-House Training - We’ll focus on what matters most to you and tailor to your context


Face-to-Face, Live Online, or Hybrid Class Tailored to Your Needs

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.

We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.

Unless you have a preferred tools we use 'Zoom for Education' that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.

live online & hybrid

We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.

You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.

A hybrid class is with some people dialling in, and some people physically together in the same room.
