Hiring the Right People for the Right Job and “Onboarding for Success!”

Course description

Making hiring mistakes is costing organizations millions of dollars every year! The current cost of replacing an employee is 1 to 3 years of that employee's salary. Even when companies do make the right hires, they often neglect to have a detailed plan for bringing new people on board. In this course you will learn how to plan for success in the hiring and onboarding process.
