HR Company aiming to help local businesses thrive and survive announces support for We Love Lichfield

In the current economic climate local businesses are struggling and it can be hard to find the budget for training and assistance that people might need.  That is why Lichfield business owner, Anthony Sutton, founder of Cream HR is putting on a free workshop for local businesses.

Recruiting can be expensive for a company and even more so if the wrong person is recruited.  The “Recruitment: Getting it Right” workshop which has been devised by the experts from Cream HR will allow local businesses to gain the knowledge they need to ensure that they get the recruitment process right ensuring hiring managers make the right decision every time for both the business and the candidate.

Katy Foster, Senior HR Consultant at Cream HR, said: “We know times are tough for businesses at the moment and we wanted to do something that would allow us to give back to the local business community. So we are running a free workshop that will teach hiring managers some useful tips. Many people believe recruitment is and the truth is it can be – if you have the right tools at your disposal.  But with so few managers actually trained in recruitment skills, and so many candidates now offered free interview coaching, it is more important than ever for employers to be able to identify the best candidates for them that will become long-term assets to their business.”

“Furthermore, we have partnered with We Love Lichfield and are asking attendees to consider a voluntary donation to the fund to further support the local community.” 

The free 2-hour workshop which will be held at Cream HR’s premises on Wednesday 4th October, will provide attendees with answers to common questions and will also ensure they leave the session with a number of tips that they can incorporate into their next round of recruitment.

 Topics that will be covered on the day include

  • Why you shouldn’t ask ‘what would you do’?
  • What is ‘the law of crappy people’ and why is it relevant
  • How to structure an interview
  • How to recognise and overcome inevitable unconscious bias
  • How to spot a fibber
