Today the biggest challenge
for any organization is to attract right kind of people and to retain them for
a longer period of time. The cost of wrong hiring is too high and has multiple
implications on the organization. Recruitment is the process
of identifying that the organisation needs to employ someone up to the point at
which application forms for the post have arrived at the organisation.
Selection then consists of the processes involved in choosing from applicants a
suitable candidate to fill a post. Recruiting individuals to fill particular
posts within a business can be done either internally by recruitment within the
firm, or externally by recruiting people from outside. The
recruitment and selection process is the center of the human resources
department for any company. It is the most effective way to staff the company
with qualified professionals for every available job. A human resources
specialist must be able to apply all these techniques as well as be trained in
dispute resolution, keeping employee morale high and answering a wide variety
of questions. Some companies hire a separate recruitment firm to bring in the
best employees for their businesses. Aptitude tests are sometimes administered
to prospective employees to determine the applicants abilities. More specific
testing, such as that for computer literacy and mathematical abilities, can
also help employers find an appropriate candidate. The Wonderlic Cognitive
Ability Test is often used to test the prospective employees’ aptitude for
learning and problem solving. All tests should be fair and accurately determine
an applicant’s abilities.All information on the resume and cover letter must be
checked for accuracy. Employees may have access to sensitive information so
their resumes must be vetted before they can be considered for employment. An
applicant who lies on a resume, cover letter or application will be immediately
denied the opportunity for employment. Some companies prefer using a formal
interview process while others favour an informal process. Most businesses
require applicants to be interviewed by someone in the human resources
department and their immediate supervisor. The human resources interview
usually covers the basics to ensure that the applicant really is qualified for
the position. In order to maintain
business performance and competitive advantage, organisations competing in a
global marketplace must recruit the best people they can. For such
organisations, recruitment and selection becomes a key component of their
overall business strategy.
