Managing Turnover With Realistic Job Previews (RJPs)

OnDemand Webinar (90 minutes)

Reduce high turnover rates, remove the element of surprise, and save money with Realistic Job Previews.When it comes to recruiting for candidates, it is a very competitive world to find the best candidate for the job. Companies are using more Realistic Job Previews (RJPs) to attract candidates and retain employees. Once a candidate and the company find a mutual interest, then it is time for the interview process to begin. The beginning of the interview process should be an RJP, which is a job description that lets potential candidates know the details of the job they have applied for regarding many aspects such as pay, hours, schedule flexibility and company culture. There are a number of ways to conduct a RJP. There are studies that show an RJP can reduce high turnover rates of new hires because there is no longer the element of surprise in the job. The new hire understands the job and the conditions they will work in before they accept the offer. Thus, an RJP is a psychological contract between the new hire and the employer. RJPs are a money-saving tool that companies are using. Learn more about this money-saving tool.
