Realistic job preview (RJP)

To increase employee job satisfaction and reduce turnover, managers should consider a realistic job preview (RJP), which includes both positive and negative information about the job and the company.

For instance, in addition to the positive comments typically expressed during an interview, the job applicant might be told that promotional advancement is unlikely, or that work hours are erratic and employees may have to work weekends.
