A genuine classic, Recruiting, Interviewing, Selecting & Orienting New Employees has kept readers up to date on the latest in staffing since its original publication. A practical and user-friendly guide to the entire employment process, the book—now extensively revised—contains forms, guidelines, and ready-to-use interview questions as well as guidance on topics including reference-checking, interview methods, documentation issues, orientation programs, applicant testing, and much more.

Smartly organized for easy, everyday reference, the book supplies you with proven strategies for getting employees on board and ready for long-term success during every phase of staffing:

• Recruiting

How to contend with a variety of recruitment challenges; take advantage of a range of sources; and keep up with the newest trends in online recruiting

• Interviewing

How to prepare for and conduct different kinds of interviews; ask more effective competency-based questions; and reveal strengths and potential concerns

• Selection

How to document the interview; perform legal and ethical background and reference checks; and create an efficient and consistent selection process

• Orientation

How to establish an effective employee orientation program that goes beyond the fundamentals

Reflecting today’s evolving workforce, fluctuating economy, and interviewing trends, the fifth edition contains new information on applicant and employer perspectives, including changing expectations about work/life balance and questions applicants are likely to ask of prospective employers. The book examines the rapidly expanding impact of social networks on the hiring process, as well as their their uses and legal risks. In addition, you’ll find information on web-based orientation programs, along with an assessment of their advantages and drawbacks.

The staffing function is among the most crucial in your entire organization. How you conduct each phase, from recruitment to orientation, can ultimately affect common organizational issues such as employee morale, absenteeism, and turn­over. Shedding light on all the traditional challenges of the hiring process while illuminating a host of brand-new topics, the fifth edition of Recruiting, Interviewing, Selecting & Orienting New Employees remains the go-to resource on staffing for any hiring environment.
