Recruitment and Retention

Recruitment and Retention is a specialist element within Human Resources and People Management.

Recruitment refers to the process of attracting, screening and selecting qualified people for a position within an organisation. It is an important management activity in securing an effective workforce. Good recruitment is about finding the right person for the job and has implications for business performance, image with customers and industry, staffing levels and profitability

Employee turnover can have negative impact on an organisation’s performance. By understanding the reasons behind staff turnover, employers can devise recruitment and retention initiatives that reduce turnover and increase employee retention.

Employers need to be aware of employee turnover rates in their organisation, and understand how these affect the organisation’s performance and ability to achieve its strategic goals. Depending on the size of the business, an appreciation of the levels of turnover across occupations, locations and particular groups of employees (such as identified high performers) can help inform a comprehensive resourcing strategy.

Tools such as confidential exit surveys and staff attitude surveys can help managers understand why people leave the business, and enable appropriate action to be taken to address it. Ensuring that new joiners have realistic expectations of their job and receive sufficient induction training will help to minimise the number of people leaving the organisation within the first six months of employment.

Measuring the levels and costs of employee turnover is vital in building the business case and informing the design of targeted recruitment and retention initiatives. This can be a powerful tool for winning line manager and board-level support for resourcing activities.
