The risk of not getting the right employee is a waste of management time. The ongoing challenge for organisations is the attraction and retention of talent against the backdrop of a skill and talent shortage. As the talent crisis escalates, organisation that have a well-defined employer brand and world class recruitment process are the ones best positioned to succeed.
The Good Recruitment Charter has been devised by employers for employers and led by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation, the professional body for the UK’s recruitment industry. Organisations are benefitting from the effects of implementing The Good Recruitment Charter and seeing its positive contribution to a highly effective people strategy. In a nutshell the Good Recruitment Charter is an aspirational set of 9 clearly defined principles.
To complement the Charter there is a Toolkit with guidance to support the implementation of each principle with links to published sources of good practice. Find out how your organisation can benefit from the Good Recruitment Charter.
