Book review – Staff Recruitment and Retention: A Good Practice Guide

Helen Green, The Housing Corporation

ISBN 190320860 , £25


Although written for a social housing readership, Helen Green
covers topics that are broadly applicable to social care, writes
Neil Thompson. Given the current problems in relation to
recruitment and retention, this could be a very important

A strong message put forward is that it is important to focus on
people rather than just processes. The significance of equality and
diversity is emphasised.

Personally, I would have liked to see more emphasis on retention
(stress is covered in one and a half pages), but I would
nonetheless recommend this book for managers and human resources
