The JobswapShop is a new concept, but please give it five minutes thought. You could have a new recruit pre-selected by the best qualified person available - the person already doing the job. We don't think your employee would approach you if they thought their intended swap wouldn't fit the bill.
You are still in charge, you could arrange a trial period and of course interview the potential candaidate.
If you employee is determined to leave to get a job nearer home, think how much The JobSwapShop could save you in recruitment time and costs.
You don't have anything to lose, you can always say no, but consider the advantages of local employees:
Be one of the first to join The JosSwapShop. Save yourself some money. Improve the work life balance of your employees. Help protect the environment.
