Much has been written on the various methods of recruiting and selecting staff, including how competencies, increasingly the building blocks of the recruitment and selection process, fit in. What, however, the personnel professional faced with recruiting wants to know is how to apply these mysterious methods. This book aims to do just that. Specifically, it provides a step-by-step guide for the recruitment, selection and assessment of candidates and includes:
â the best practice aspects of recruitment and selection
â the practical considerations important when implementing a process
â leading edge, unreported methods developed in the field.
HR managers will find this enlightening and instructive book enormously useful in their day-to-day functions. "For what is principally billed as a guide, the authors have provided a comprehensive and up to date collection of recruitment and selection practices with some valuable critiques of some of the more mysterious processes in use." Richard Donkin, Financial Times "Overall, it was refreshing to read a book that comes down firmly on their (competencies) side it forces you to take a fresh look at your current practices and to question how they are used." Sue Simons, People Management
