Many employers would say that taking on employees is a comparatively easy task. It contrasts sharply with the problems associated with dismissal, whether that be for conduct, capability, redundancy or some other reason. The law relating to dismissal is complex and can be confusing; it has certainly led over the last few years to growing numbers of industrial tribunals. Argues that getting it right at the beginning, at the recruitment and employment stage, can minimize problems at later stages and is certainly important in ensuring that an organization has the workforce it needs to meet its objectives.

Leadership style is a variable that has received significant attention in the management literature. This study suggests that effective leadership style may not be dependent on whether an organization is for-profit or not-for-profit. The findings of this study indicate that even in a not-for-profit context, effective leadership is defined not only by task and people orientations but also the interaction between them. Therefore, in developing the psychological profile of effective not-for-profit leaders, as is the case in the for-profit sector, management researchers should explore both their task and people orientations.
