Building a Recruitment and Retention Plan

Assignment 9: Select the Priority Challenge (Usually a Job Position) that will be the Focus

Some of the following materials are adapted from the Decision Process Guide, published by the U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Reclamation.

Now that alternatives have been evaluated and ranked, the decision maker will select one alternative. In many cases the decision maker will ask the group who worked on these assignments to make the decision. The alternative that is chosen will relate to or focus on a job position.

How to do it:

Look at the results of the evaluation conducted in Assignment 8 to determine the most effective alternative. The selected alternative must strike a balance between support needed to accomplish the task and effectiveness in meeting the goal. Consult with implementers to be certain that the alternative selected is feasible.

Document and share the reasons for selection to show everyone what drove the decision and why.

Once the priority focus of your recruitment and retention plan is identified, the alternatives list may be used to develop the action plan.
