To become as successful as possible in the attraction, selection and hiring of people, it is vital to ensure that good practice prevails throughout the resourcing process. The campaign, created by businesses for businesses, exists to promote the critical importance that good recruitment practice plays in organisational success.
As demand returns to the economy and businesses are looking to hire more staff, fine-tuning their resourcing strategies becomes critical.
