Slughorn was reluctant to work at Hogwarts; Harry helped Dumbledore convince Slughorn that it was in his (Slughorn's) best interest to do so - as Dumbledore had evidently foreseen. Apparently the main reason Dumbledore wanted Slughorn in Hogwarts is because Slughorn had some important information (which he really preferred to keep secret), which Harry and Dumbledore needed to defeat Lord Voldemort.
