What is Recruitment and Selection?

Recruitment and selection is the process of identifying the need for a job, defining the requirements of the job, advertising the position, and hiring the most appropriate person for the job.

Recruitment and Selection is an important process to hire employees who are the most skilled for a job, who fit into your organizational culture and who will motivate others to boost performance and productivity.

Why is having a Recruitment and Selection Policy necessary?

It is important to recruit and hire candidates with the best skills and experience for your organization. These people will drive teams to reach company goals and objectives.

Recruiting the correct people from the start can improve rates of employee retention. The onboarding process is especially important as 40% of new hires quit soon after joining because the job role was not what they were expecting.

Having a recruitment and selection policy guarantees equal opportunities to all, regardless of age, gender, religion, or ethnicity. Additionally, internal, and external candidates are treated equally.

Finally, it is important to have legislation in place in the event that a job offer must be revoked. This can occur if a candidate has been dishonest in their application, if they are not legally allowed to take the job, or if they are involved in an ongoing legal dispute.
