Recruiting the Hard-to-Employ. Perspectives on Training the Disadvantaged--The Hard-to-Employ. Personnel Services Review Series 2.
Harrison, Don K.
Traditional recruitment for employment could be made through news media, but for the hard-to-employ more aggressive tactics will be necessary. A company will need to tap community resources such as state employment services, Office of Economic Opportunity agencies, the Urban League, and vocational rehabilitation agencies. A special company recruiting agent, who can move freely in the community, will go into the community centers and pool halls to find and attract future employees. Private firms, which can be located with help of local Chamber of Commerce or National Association of Businessmen, specialize in training the hard-core; they also do the recruiting. It should be realized that recruiting is but the first step in support for the hard-to-employ; special programs will need genuine support of top management, supervisory personnel, and plant workers.
