Recruitment: Good Recruitment Campaign

  • Over 270 employers signed up

The Good Recruitment Campaign helps organisations benchmark their current recruitment methods and reinvigorate their strategies in order to attract the right candidate. Led by the REC and a panel of employers and experts including CIPD, City and Guilds Group, EY and Vodafone the initiative promotes inclusive hiring practices, flexible work, quality candidate experiences and continuous improvement to enable organisations to acquire the talent they need to perform and grow.

At the heart of the Good Recruitment Campaign is the Good Recruitment Charter which defines good recruitment practice through nine key principles that the organisations who sign up to the charter will aspire to.

Upon joining the initiative, organisations are provided with direct access to a large network of HR/In-house recruitment professionals. Signatories also benefit from workshops, conferences, peer-reviews and self-assessment tools. With over 270 companies signed up, representing more than 2 million employees the campaign is going from strength to strength.

The Good Recruitment Campaign welcomes all businesses that are committed to resourcing the right way.
