RSM New Zealand

Complimentary Seminar | Getting the right people on the bus and keeping them there

Wednesday 28th August | 12:00pm


Replacing employees can cost a business anywhere between 30% to up to 5x salary costs. Keen to keep this to a minimum?

Come and hear Max Whitehead present on the benefits of hiring right and going the distance with your employees.

Recruitment and retention are hot topics in the HR world; even more-so following recent updates to employment legislation and an ever changing employee priority landscape. Understanding how to navigate and keep on top of modern issues is key to employing the right people and keeping them there.

Max will delve into issues such as:

  • If money is no longer the prime motivator for employment and retention; what is?
  • Mental Illness: Assessing a candidate’s mental duress & future wellbeing during the recruitment process;
  • What are the best ways to assess a candidate’s potential for the role and retain them?

 Who should attend: HR Managers, Office Managers, Recruiters & Employers.
