Businesses gear-up to jump HR hurdles Says Randstad 

82% of organisations say they are experiencing recruitment challenges

36% of employees who have been in a role for less than two years are looking for a new role

Cost to replace an employee can add up to a year's salary

Findings recently published in the 2013/2014 edition of the Randstad workpocket follow the complete recruitment journey from finding and interviewing candidates, onboarding, retention, performance management and succession planning. This essential guide to HR, which is eleventh in the series, will help organisations of all sizes navigate HR legislation and current recruitment topics. As well as a user-friendly top tip feature and informative statistics, workpocket outlines a number of case studies for businesses to identify with.  

82% of organisations say they are experiencing recruitment difficulties, with 59% saying it's due to a shortage of skills.* Retention is also proving a considerable HR challenge, with 36% of employees who have been in a role for less than two years now looking for a new job.**

Ruth Jacobs, Managing Director of Randstad Business Support, said “Over recent years, demand for workpocket has soared within the SME sector. Many small businesses are spread thin and not all have the luxury of dedicated HR resource. This HR tool is ideal for helping organisations stay on top of ever-evolving HR-related legislation. The recruitment and retention chapters always prove valuable to SMEs as the cost of making the wrong recruitment decision or losing a key member of personnel can have a significant impact on their business. In fact, one of the workpocket’s statistics highlights how it can cost up to a year’s salary to replace an employee.”***

Ruth Jacobs adds “We’ve listened to our SME clients and they requested something accessible and easy to read. Despite the digital age, people want a quick reference guide that they can have on hand. This issue we’ve also included a new chapter on how to make the most of social media in employee recruitment and engagement, which are very topical across the board but are of particular interest to smaller businesses who want to learn, explore and capitalise on new and cost effective channels available to them.”
