As one of the top issues for CIOs nowadays the recruiting and retention of IT-professionals has received a lot of attention both in practice and research. While companies are in dire need of new strategies and integrated approaches in human resources, research has predominately observed the general attitude of IT-professionals to their work, their individual incentives and consequentially their turnover intention. We aim to relieve these needs in practice by introducing an approach containing an aligned ITarchitecture of e- recruiting and retention processes. For this purpose we use a design science approach to develop an IT-architecture of retention processes and their related subsystems and combine this architecture with the next-generation holistic e-recruiting system invented by In Lee in 2007. This architecture could increase knowledge transfer and thereby improve the adjustment and performance of both processes.
