Here’s a concept that shouldn’t come as a shock: In order to perform better, people need on-the-job-training. They need the knowledge, tools and resources to be more effective and skilled at their jobs. And this rule applies to any position – especially recruiters.
Being a recruiter isn’t easy. Talent acquisition is hard work. It’s their job to nurture, source and recruit the best possible candidates for your organization’s open positions. And while most businesses have a talent acquisition function, they don’t always have training specific to recruiting.
Luckily, last week we sat down with our friends from Fistful of Talent, Kris Dunn, CHRO of Kinetix, and Tim Sackett, President of HRU Technical Resources, who were able to tell us a thing or two about creating training programs for recruiters. During the 20-minute hangout, we chatted about:
- Why your training strategy depends on the type of recruiter you’re hiring and the specialization of your recruiting function
- The most important components of a training platform for recruiters
- Ways to link training to ongoing coaching and performance management efforts, and
- Why the right training approach can be viewed as an investment in career development for your recruiters
Check out the recording for some candid stories and great advice on how to develop a solid training program for recruiters.
