MY Chamber HR Seminar Postponed

Published 30th Jul 2013 by Events

We apologise for any inconvenience caused but the MY Chamber HR Seminar has been postponed for the foreseeable future. We'll be sure keep you updated on the rescheduled date, upon arrangement.

The first MY Chamber HR seminar to be run by Halifax based Organic HR partner Spencer Lord and Huddersfield based Pennine Business Partners, Lynn Bradley will unfortunately be rescheduled for a later date.

The first seminar will delve in to Effective recruitment and selection.

Finding and hiring the right people is one of the most important challenges businesses face. What is more, the average cost of filling a vacancy in the UK is around £5,000 – it pays to get it right first time!

Do it well and there are tangible advantages – the latest research shows that when it comes to delivering on recruiting, the most capable companies achieve 3.5x the revenue growth and 2x the profit margin compared to the least capable companies over a ten year period.

On the other hand, get it wrong and the business will have lost time, potentially exposed itself to employment law risks and incurred significant direct and indirect cost.

This short, focused session aims to provide some quick wins and practical advice, including:

  • What is the difference between recruitment and selection?
  • Where to find candidates?
  • Which selection techniques work?
  • What are the employment law considerations when hiring?
  • A checklist for recruitment and selection – end to end

So, whether you are preparing to take on your first member of staff, you’ve had some hiring experiences you’d like to share, or you’d like to refresh your awareness in readiness for a recruitment campaign, this session could be for you.

Following the session, there will be an opportunity for a confidential one to one ‘HR surgery’ with a HR expert to discuss recruitment or any other people focused issue your business is facing. If you would like to book a HR surgery session, please confirm in advance.

We shall keep you updated on the rescheduled date of the event, in due course.

Once again, we apologise for any inconvenience caused.
