Talanoa on the job
Using a Pacific worldview to connect during the interview process.
Demonstrate genuine interest, respect and cultural awareness when selecting a new employee.
The Talanoa approach to recruitment is about showing genuine interest in your interviewee, understanding and making sense of what the experience is like for people from different cultures.
In this webinar you’ll explore verbal and non verbal communication and delve into background stories. It will help you lead authentic and respectful relationships within your team which can then form part of your new employee selection process.
