Abstract

Scarcities of qualified personnel are a substantial problem in securing an adequate workforce. At the same time, increasing wages to secure an adequate workforce is not always possible or sufficiently effective, and other ways of retaining and recruiting personnel have to be found. Investigates the importance of various job characteristics for retaining and recruiting employees and presents the results from a survey among employees of a Dutch hospital experiencing a tight labour market. Job characteristics other than wages, such as labour relations and work content, were found to play a major role in individuals′ choices to resign or stay. Discusses consequences for employment strategies in other organizations.
