Abstract

Firms' decisions about whom to hire and fire have big effects, not only on their own bottom line but also on the functioning of the labour market and the performance of the whole economy. Analysis of Brazilian data by Daniela Scur and colleagues demonstrates the value of 'structured management practices' for better quality recruitment and retention - and improved productivity.
