Recruiting Employees
Individual and Organizational Perspectives

  • Alison E. Barber - Michigan State University, East Lansing, USA, Michigan State University, USA

May 1998 | 184 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
In this book, Alison E Barber delineates three separate stages of recruitment - generating applicants, maintaining applicant status and influencing job choice - and discusses existing knowledge and important unanswered questions relevant to each of these stages. She also addresses the questions of whether and how recruitment influences organizational outcomes.

Traditional recruitment topics such as recruitment source effects and reactions to initial interviews are covered in detail, while alternative approaches to recruitment research, requiring different theoretical frameworks and different research methods, are also proposed.

Generating Applicants
Maintaining Applicant Status
Influencing Job Choice
Does Recruitment Matter? The Organization's Perspective
