Gleason & Co. is a mid-sized construction company located in London, Ontario. Four weeks ago, the company was awarded a $2,000,000 federal government contract to renovate a secondary school. Gleason & Co. currently employs 195 employees already working to maximum capacity, so Management has decided to create a department that will be solely responsible for the federal government contract. This will mean a company expansion with 30 new employees joining the organization. You have been given the task of leading the hiring team for the new division.
There have been many changes in the field of HR since the company last expanded, and Management has expressed concerns that some of the people assigned to your team are not as knowledgeable about Recruitment and Selection as they should be. Management has requested that you begin by educating your team members in the most up-to-date Recruitment and Selection methods.
