Course overview

The selection of employees, with the ensuing costs and risks associated with such a decision, is one of the most critical steps in the entire process of managing. The importance of the selection decision is further emphasised through the costs associated with mis-hiring.  These cost figures can include wasted salary, squandered training, poor service to clients and loss of business opportunities.
