Editor's message: Recruitment begins with defining what type of person the organisation is seeking to recruit before identifying how to attract, and eventually appoint, the ideal applicant.
Having an effective recruitment strategy should help the employer to fill vacancies faster and more cost-effectively, with high-quality individuals ready to make a positive contribution to the success of the organisation.
Once recruited, retaining employees is the next challenge. An effective retention strategy should include a range of initiatives such as flexible working and an induction programme.
