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?

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.
