'recycled' workers--the best applicant pool?
Did any of you receive the mailing from OfficeTeam--How to Hire Smart? It has a list of the best ways to find good employees.
#1 is "recruit from within" and #2 is "hire former employees." I agree that present and former employees are a "known quantity (and quality)" who are proven to work well in the company culture. However, recruiting from this pool can result in some problems, beginning with lack of new ideas.
What do you all think?
