Frazer Jones Award for Innovation in Recruitment and Retention
Has your team developed recruitment approaches that seek out the most talented staff and ensure they stay with the organisation?Then why not enter this year's Personnel Today Awards?
With the current backdrop of skills shortages and the war for talent, this award could not be more timely or important. It is designed to recognise innovative approaches in selection, recruitment and retention of employees. The judge will look for an HR team that has adopted a clear approach to selecting employees and developing, motivating and retaining them in line with strategic objectives.
Sponsor Frazer Jones wants to stress the importance of looking at recruitment beyond the phase of hiring new staff. "Recruitment and retention is one of the most visible ways that HR can add value to an organisation," says partner Mark Brewer. "In our view retention is as important as recruitment although in many organisations less emphasis is put on it, which simply doesn't make sense. We see our business as not just hiring but enabling clients to keep the best available talent."
New methods of recruitment, measuring and assessing performance, succession planning and testing competency are among the approaches organisations have adopted. Other organisations have looked at the terms and conditions they can offer staff and tailored them to attract the applicants they need. New technology can often play an important role. If your team has developed strong approaches to recruitment and retention you should be entering this award.
Entry for the awards is free.
