I recommend it and have found it very useful. What I like best is he targets things many of us could fix, but we just don't have them on our radar. My favorite is Reason 1 - The Job or workplace was not what was expected. Here are some tough questions you might ask yourself:
- Do you conduct realistic job previews with every job candidate?
- Do you make a significant percentage of your hires from a pool of temps, adjuncts, or part-time workers who already know your workplace?
- Do you use employee referrals and hire a significant percentage of these referred potentials?
- Do you have realistic job descriptions with a short list of the most critical competencies?
- Do you allow candidate's future coworkers to participate in job interviews?
- DO you make a significant percentage of hires from a pool of current employees?
- Do you build into the interviewing process a way for candidates to gain a "sample" of the on-the-job duties.
- Do you survey or interview new hires to find out how to minimize new hire surprises in the future?
