ACAS has published two new guides to help employers recruit and settle in staff.

The first guide is called ‘Recruiting Staff’ and it goes through the various stages involved in hiring a new employee up until their first day on the job. It provides guidance on the various hiring options, what essential documents are needed, how to advertise a job, choosing the right candidate and what to do when the right candidate has been found. For more details see: http:// www.ACAS.org.uk/media/pdf/j/t/Recruiting-staff.pdf.

The second guide is called ‘Starting Staff: Induction’ and goes through the stages of settling in a new employee once they have accepted a job offer. It also includes sections on inductions for school, college and university leavers and for home workers. For more details see: http://www.ACAS.org.uk/media/pdf/3/0/Starting-staff-induction.pdf.
