Abstract and Keywords

Much of the research on employee recruitment has focused on recruitment activities (e.g., the use of different recruitment methods) and their outcomes (e.g., turnover rate). However, for an organization to get maximum value from its recruitment actions, the first thing it should do is establish formal recruitment objectives. Following this, an organization should develop a recruitment strategy that logically follows from these objectives. These two topics are examined here. In addressing the establishment of recruitment objectives, different types of objectives (e.g., pre-hire vs. post-hire) are discussed and methods for demonstrating their job relatedness are described. In addressing the development of a recruitment strategy, seven key strategy-related questions are highlighted.

Keywords: employee recruitment, establishing recruitment objectives, recruitment methods, recruitment strategy development, recruitment timing, targeted recruitment
