Post-hire training: a means of integrating and retaining new recruits ?
New recruits receive less training than employees with longer job tenure. Training on entry into post is provided less frequently for formerly unemployed individuals than for people already in employment prior to recruitment. Nevertheless, the fact of having received post-hire training seems to improve employee retention, particularly among the previously unemployed. Such training would appear to be a means of improving worker-job matching or employee engagement with the work environment.
