Building a Recruitment and Retention Plan

Step 3: Analyze the Selected Job Position [2.1.0.g]

If you are following this process in its entirety, you have completed:

In Step 1, you identified retention, turnover, and vacancy rates for your organization and data on effective and ineffective recruitment and retention practices.
In Step 2, you summarized your recruitment and retention data and used that information to identify the most critical job position.

If you complete Step 3 you will have:

  • Developed clarity concerning what type of individual (possessing what knowledge, skills, and abilities) is best suited for the position; and
  • Identified supports needed for staff to be effective in the position.
Once you have identified the focus or “challenge” job position that will be addressed, you will need to clarify the duties, responsibilities, skills, competencies, required outcomes, supervision and training needs, and work environment for the position. This will help ensure that the appropriate people are being recruited and selected, and will identify the required supports for incumbents. The more information gathered in the job analysis stage, the easier it will be to write the job description.
