A question of balance – managing recruitment risk

This report sheds light on the different types of risk involved in organisations’ recruitment practices. It finds that when the biggest risks materialise, the consequences can be as or more ruinous as a major security breach or regulatory violation. The report also examines how some organisations are seeking to minimise risk with their recruitment and selection methods.

Topics covered by this research report include:
• The dangers of making the wrong hire
• Outlining types of risk involved in certain recruitment and selection methods
• The impact of recruitment and selection methods on the process as a whole
• The importance of transparency with candidates and stakeholders
• The value of effective candidate screening
• The dangers of relying too heavily on individual recruitment and selection methods or areas
• The importance of clarity in relation to ownership of the recruitment process
• Aligning recruitment and selection methods with wider business strategy
• Central policy and local interpretation
• Brand reputation risk
