How to Attract the Best Talent in your Team

Course Code: CEPS 1082E
In business, competition is fierce. And the first place that becomes painfully apparent is in recruitment. In this workshop, management professional Sophie Lemieux will help you master recruitment techniques like defining a position, interviewing, candidate selection and making an offer. Softer skills like reading between the lines of a CV and decoding a candidate's subtle behaviour will help you sharpen your skills, making you an invaluable asset to your organization. If you want the best talent on your team, get Sophie on yours.

Your take-away

This workshop will empower you to:
• Understand the importance of clearly defining business needs (skills vs. experience);
• Adapt the recruitment process to each particular organization, service or team;
• Learn and improve your ability to conduct effective interviews;
• See beyond simple appearances when choosing a candidate;
• Develop your hiring, negotiation and referral skills.

Our approach

This workshop is based on an optimized practical approach that mixes active learning, self-assessment activities, demonstrations and individual exercises to help you push past your comfort zone and develop your skills. In short, you’ll learn by doing and sharing.

Who benefits the most?

• Employees seeking professional growth and success.
• Managers, entrepreneurs and self-employed professionals who want to build the most effective teams.
• Employers who want to give their employees a great learning opportunity that will contribute to the success of their organization.
