Attraction and retention in rural and remote communities
Becker, Karen L., Hyland, Paul, & Soosay, Claudine (2011) Attraction and retention in rural and remote communities. In 25th Annual Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management Conference: The Future of Work and Organisations, 7 – 9 December, Wellington, New Zealand.
Attracting and retaining a skilled labour force is a critical yet complex issue for rural and remote communities. This article reports the findings of a study investigating the current approaches to recruitment and retention in two separate Australian regions. Building on previously developed models, the research analyses the roles employers and the wider communities are playing, or potentially could play, in addressing issues that influence labour shortages. The findings of the research highlight the complexities of employee attraction and retention and emphasise the need for communities and businesses to work together to overcome labour shortages in rural and remote locations.
