What Recruitment Training means at Antal International
I am a recruitment trainer.
But just what does that mean in an Indian recruitment context?
As I googled for the term in an Indian context, I realized that most people with this term in their profiles are internal HR recruiters within companies, and what I understand they do is to coach on some key word searches, Boolean operators, coach their team in talent acquisition for better mining over job boards and social media; and also give guidance on interview techniques and questions.
Well I was a bit disappointed, because a true recruitment trainer is not just about key word searches and interview techniques. A recruitment trainer assists a recruitment business get off the ground and stay the course, and build a long term and highly profitable recruitment business.
Now, if you were to look at the Western world, which has a highly evolved recruitment industry- where the industry itself is considered a viable profession, it has its own body of regulation, and curriculum, you will realize that the term Recruitment Trainer is not used lightly.
These are people who have worked in, or built or scaled up recruitment businesses themselves and are now extending their knowledge and experience to those who are looking for such advise–so the recipient’s recruitment business gathers momentum, the recruitment consultants KAS (Knowledge, Attitude, Skills) strengthens, eventually leading to a marked positive shift in the revenue generating ability of the business.
I am proud to say that I belong to this category of recruitment trainers.
With Antal, I get a chance to impact the fortunes of recruitment businesses of our franchise owners, coaching them and their consultants, guiding them on what I know makes money in this business.
The support is about constant encouragement to stick to the best recruitment processes.
The support is in the advice to my owners on how to attract, hire, induct, train, performance manage and retain their staff.
The support is in I critical evaluation of individual offices’s marketing and sales pipelines and talking about how to strengthen it.
I coach them on how to increase productivity- how to get more out of what they are doing- I provide structure and systems so that the framework helps their business grow.
With those who are new to the world of recruitment, my work is to reduce their Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt- I strengthen the belief that this is a great profession to be in, intellectually and profit-wise.
I have business conversations with my owners, spark ideas in their minds, influence them to change what’s not working, strengthen what is working, and together we dream of possibilities in their business.
I am a Recruitment Trainer, I am passionate about what I do.
