The latest thinking, news and events from the world of Recruitment

What’s the Point of Recruitment Training?


Here’s a thought provoking new blog post from our e-learning expert, Sam Burrough.

A lot of the time as managers, we think training is a magic bullet. We’re happy to pay the money for the course, but we don’t put in the time and effort before and after to get the results.

Sam shares some great insights from over 12 years experience of designing learning experiences as to what really works and poses the key question – what do you want from recruitment training?

What is the point of Recruitment Training? I mean what do you really want from it?

Before we dig into that, and a few other important questions, let me introduce myself. Hello, I’m Sam Burrough and I’m in charge of creating the online training experiences at Elevated. If Alex is the recruitment geek, then I’m the learning/training/design geek.

I’ve spent the past 12 years working in e-learning and training roles. Over that time I’ve written lots of blog posts, regularly participated in debates, been invited to speak at conferences and designed many, many hours of e-learning.

If you’re reading this, you’re probably from a recruitment background. So I’d like to share some insights about training that you might not know.
