Much has been written on the various methods of recruiting and selecting staff, including how competencies, increasingly the building blocks of the recruitment and selection process, fit in. What, however, the personnel professional faced with recruiting wants to know is how to apply these mysterious methods. This book aims to do just that. Specifically, it provides a step--by--step guide for the recruitment, selection and assessment of candidates and includes: aeo the best practice aspects of recruitment and selection aeo the practical considerations important when implementing a process aeo leading edge, unreported methods developed in the field. HR managers will find this enlightening and instructive book enormously useful in their day--to--day functions. "For what is principally billed as a guide, the authors have provided a comprehensive and up to date collection of recruitment and selection practices with some valuable critiques of some of the more mysterious processes in use." Richard Donkin, Financial Times "Overall, it was refreshing to read a book that comes down firmly on their (competencies) side it forces you to take a fresh look at your current practices and to question how they are used." Sue Simons, People Management
Good book about assessing candidates
By Neal Bruce - December 29, 1999
As an experienced recruiter, I am always looking for books that go beyond the basics. This book is helpful in describing assessment techniques. It is written from a U.K. perspective, but translates well for U.S. readers. Pros: There is excellent food for thought on interviewing skills training. Cons: Weak information on finding candidates. Overall: Recommend for those looking to learn more about competency-based or behavioral-based interviewing.

In the era of "Strategic Human Resources Management", this study is a new breath for recruitment and selection process.As written by Wood and Payne " the book effectively falls into four sections :* The context of recruitment and selection.* Attracting and sifting candidates.* Assessing candidates.* Decision making and evaluating."To reinforce and dramatize what they are saying, Wood and Payne are going to run a case study throughout the book.I highly recommend this invaluable book to HR practitioners.
