The problem of retention begins with recruitment! In most of the organizations the recruitment function operates independently of the retention department. HR people have so far been naive to the direct relationship between the two and the resulting increase in employee turnover.

In recruitment Human resource department comes across a wide range of people who are different in terms of their psyche, their attitudes, beliefs and all other factors. It becomes difficult to judge what motivates whom. Incentives may motivate a certain person but may be equally unimportant to some other.
