Much has been written about the role of human resources professionals in creating sustainable organizations. However, despite recognition that organizational human resources functions have an important role to play in sustainability, researchers tend to focus on strategic issues and sustainability. This higher-order focus has often meant that practical, operational-level advice has been overlooked. This article addresses that gap by presenting a framework of suggested sustainable recruitment and selection practices. This framework is applicable to practitioners and acts as a curriculum for educators. Almost 90 specific environmental, economic and social sustainability practices in recruitment and selection were revealed in the data collection process. A prioritized top 10 list of practices is recommended for immediate implementation.
