PR UPDATE SEPT

HR forum puts spotlight on avoiding recruitment pitfalls

A HR forum on 22 September will equip employers with insights into best practice in recruitment and how to avoid common pitfalls. The free event, hosted by hlw Keeble Hawson, includes a networking breakfast and takes place at the firm’s Commercial House office on Commercial Street, Sheffield from 8.45am-10.15am. Attendees will be invited to discuss key recruitment areas including pre-employment checks, interviews, investigating potential candidates on social media, offer letters – and how to avoid discrimination. Lauren Pickard, associate at hlw Keeble Hawson who will host the workshop, said: “As skills shortages bite harder, businesses across wide-ranging sectors face tough competition to recruit and retain top talent. “Our seminar will help attendees to implement processes to help prevent discrimination claims and avoid taking on the wrong employees – both of which can prove costly, time consuming and demotivating for other staff.”
