Synopses & Reviews
Endorsed by Institute of Directors (IoD) The recruitment process is both long and costly, and when a mistake is made it can be catastrophic for the organization and the individual involved. The process is complex and offers as many opportunities for making a bad decision as a good one. Yet despite this, many managers only learn how to make these decisions --on the hoof-- or from watching others. ""A Manager's Guide to Recruitment and Selection"" is designed for busy managers who are responsible for recruitment at any level. The book clearly shows that successful recruitment is a two-way process involving both employer and employee. Emphasis is placed on the fact that many of the actions involved do not require the highly developed skills of an experienced practitioner. They do however, require thought, planning and preparation. This book demonstrates how to do this and make the right appointment every time. ""A Manager's Guide to Recruitment and Selection"" covers: * Attracting the right candidate; * Selection methods; * Short listing; * Testing; * Appointing the candidate; * Inducting the new employee; * Evaluating the decision. This fully updated second edition is packed with useful case studies and now includes new material on equal opportunities, and good practice advice to enable employers to counter growing litigation in the workplace.
""Rather than a quick referenceguide or a source of ready action steps or tips, the book provides thoughtful background on each aspect of staffing. It could serves as a useful primer in sensitizing managers to the objective sna implicaiont of recuritment, or a kind of textbook fro those beginning a career in HR."" --Canadian HR Reporter
