Recruitment and Induction. Recruiting the most suitable persons to meet the requirements of the role and fit the organisation’s culture is a key human resource management role and skill. In times of rapid technological change and innovation, and an international shortage of skills, retaining good staff is critical. A professional induction programme is the first step in employee engagement and retention.
It is generally recognised that first impressions are central to how relationships develop. The employment relationship is no different, and the goal is to achieve the psychological engagement for new employees to feel part of the organisation by the time they go home on the first day.
