Executive Summary: A question of balance – managing recruitment risk

This executive summary outlines the main topics and themes of the full research report - A question of balance – managing recruitment risk. The 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 recruitment risk.

Some of the topics covered in the executive summary include:
• The greatest recruitment risks today
• How the length and complexity of some recruitment processes can result in lost candidates
• The importance of a clear brief for managing recruitment risk
• Co-ordination of recruitment with organisational strategy
• Managing recruitment risk in relation to organisation reputation and brand
