"In boom times and recessions alike, finding and keeping the best talent for your organization is a demanding job. Now 14 human resources (HR) specialists are on hand to help you meet the ongoing challenge in this major reference and practical guide that encompasses every aspect of employee recruitment and retention." "Edited by a former corporate HR professional with almost 30 years' experience in the field, The AMA Handbook for Employee Recruitment and Retention shows how to attract and retain the most productive workers in an increasingly high-tech age. In particular, it will help you handle one of the most vexing problems facing organizations today, well known to readers of the "Workforce 2000" report: the growing mismatch between the types and numbers of people available to work and the types of available jobs. You'll find classic and flexible approaches to:" "The Hiring Process. Learn how to identify your needs as far in advance as possible." "Assess the demographics and skills of your applicant base. Enhance traditional recruitment methods with low-cost technology solutions. Take advantage of innovations in testing and competency-based assessment. Explore orientation programs that enhance loyalty and encourage productivity." "Compensation and Benefits. Investigate net strategies, such as two-tier wage plans and salaried plans. Evaluate executive compensation plans and alternatives. Survey the changing world of standard and flexible benefits, and learn to devise competitive yet affordable programs." "Employee Relations. Review standard and cutting-edge employee assistance programs. Examine the trends in performance appraisals. Use ongoing training and a more participative management style to retain your best employees. Improve employee communications. And help resolve work and family issues by examining alternative work options." "The AMA Handbook for Employee Recruitment and Retention also reviews legal and regulatory considerations, clarifying the measures that HR professionals can and cannot adopt. And it gives you a wealth of practical, hands-on aids including dozens of sample policies, forms, worksheets, checklists, and guidelines."--Jacket.
