The Ethics of Recruitment

In this highly interactive session you will be introduced to two ethical recruitment dilemmas that are typical of scenarios that are faced every day across Australia by companies.

The aim of the session is to have you consider the principles, either explicit or implicit, upon which you operate not just a recruiter but also as the representative of your employer.

The challenge of fully and carefully considering your own ethics, your job role, your employer’s responsibilities and the law will be fully explored in this stimulating and engaging session.
