Welcome to Talent Academy Microschool! This one-of-a-kind mentored online training to help you to be confident leaders and to source, interview and recruit top talent.  

This course is for leaders and managers who want to attract the best talent for their business and ensure they are the perfect fit, through Talent Dynamic profiling and asking great questions at interviews.

It does not stop there though, onboarding your new recruit is just as important as the recruiting itself. You will have a clear understanding of the importance and impact onboarding has on your business.



Microdegree Outcomes

Are you fed up recruiting the wrong candidates? Let me take you on a journey that will maximise your chances of recruiting the best possible candidates for your business at a fraction of the financial cost…. 

The average cost of a bad hire is 3 times their salary, and that is just the financial cost. Have you considered the cost of team morale, and engagement?

Often the wrong hire comes from not understanding the role you are recruiting for, not knowing how to attract the right candidates and poor interviewing. 

2022 has seen a global candidate shortage and this has created a "war for talent".

One in 3 offers are rejected because the candidate has been counter offered. As a business do you have the competitive edge to prevent counter offers?
