Skills Development Scotland (SDS) has published its latest guidance for employers – Employer’s Guide to Recruitment: Support Your Employees.
This latest publication forms part of a series of guides to help employers achieve a more diverse workforce, focusing on different aspects of the recruitment process.
The newest addition to the guides focuses on how to support and retain staff once they start a new role. Practical tips include what an organisation can do to offer support on day one, the benefits of a buddy and mentor, as well as a list of useful contacts.
The guide was created in response to a recommendation from the Equalities Engagement Group, part of the Scottish Apprenticeship Advisory Board (SAAB), made up of industry leaders from across different sectors in Scotland.
