Review the engagement practices presented in this chapter and check the

ones you believe your organization needs to implement or improve:

To Match Expectations with Reality:

1. _ Conduct realistic job previews with every job candidate.

2. _ Make a significant percentage of hires from pool of temp, adjunct,

and part-time workers.

3. _ Make a significant percentage of hires from current employee referrals.

4. _ Create a realistic job description with a short list of most critical

competencies.

5. _ Allow candidate’s future coworkers to participate in job interviews.

6. _ Make a significant percentage of hires from pool of current employees.

7. _ Build into the interviewing process a way for candidates to gain a

‘‘sample’’ of on-the-job experience.

8. _ Survey or interview new hires to find out how to minimize new

hire surprises in the future.
