Abstract and Keywords

Recruitment sources refer to the methods employers use to attract future employees. For several decades, the research has focused on their effect on turnover and performance. This chapter expands the focus to include a much broader collection of dependent variables that include absenteeism, work attitudes, fit, cognitions, stress reactions, demographics, information types, and applicant characteristics. Current hypotheses explaining why recruitment sources influence outcomes are reviewed with the addition of a fairly recent explanation referred to as the “richness hypothesis.” The review ends by posing a number of research questions with the hopes of stimulating future research in the realm of recruitment sources.

Keywords: absenteeism, applicant characteristics, explanations, job satisfaction, performance, recruitment sources, richness, stress, turnover
