From the summary:
Two of the most critical activities within the human resources (HR) domain are recruiting and staffing. This involves identifying and attracting the right people to fill positions, ranging from upper management and key decision-maker roles to entry-level personnel. Finding the right person for each position and doing so in a cost-effective and timely manner is a challenge for any organization, but it is becoming especially difficult for public sector entities. This IPMA-HR research study sought to understand what public sector HR organizations do to identify and attract qualified applicants, what methods and strategies work well, and what difficulties organizations encounter in these efforts.
