Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Recruitment is often neglected in the HRM literature. Most accounts combine the discussion of recruitment with selection, with greater emphasis on selection. However, the more effective organisations are at identifying and attracting a high quality pool of job applicants, the less important the selection stage of hiring becomes. According to some, recruitment is “the most critical human resource function for organizational survival or success” (Taylor & Collins, 2000, p.304 ).
