About

Finding and hiring the right people is often cited as the number one concern of businesses today. It seems we are all competing for the best and brightest workers.  As you will see in our time together in the second course, a critical component of the People Manager Value Proposition is to hire talented people who enable the organization to achieve its strategic goals. This Recruiting, Hiring, and Onboarding Employees offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Minnesota is an introduction into the topic of recruitment, selection and onboarding. 

At the outset of the course we will explore the importance of linking recruitment goals with overall company strategy. We then look at a number of options to recruit and select employees both effectively and legally. 

Throughout the course we will examine current issues in talent acquisition, such as how companies are now leveraging social media and hiring analytics to ensure better quality hires.
