Employer Support Resources

A successful recruiting program is necessary in attracting and selecting qualified candidates to join your company’s workforce. The process of hiring new employees involves several important steps for the employer, from creating an effective job description and promoting the job opportunity, to developing the interview and candidate evaluation process. Once the right candidate has been selected for the position, there are a number of tasks to accomplish a smooth transition for the employee into the workplace. Employers also need to ensure that they comply with all legal requirements related to recruiting and hiring new employees. These resources help support the employer throughout the recruitment process.
