Quick Reference

Is a policy of non-replacement of existing staff (when they choose to leave or retire) and non-recruitment of trainees. A recruitment freeze can be an effective short-term measure when an organization needs to reduce headcount as a result of structural change or changing economic conditions and has reliable human resource planning data. For example, a large corporation that typically takes graduate trainees on an annual basis may have a recruitment freeze for a year in order to ensure there is not an oversupply within the internal labour market.
