Planning the recruitment process

Monday 14 November 2016

Effective recruitment processes are vital to ensure that an organisation has the people it needs to implement its strategy and meet its objectives. Recruitment can be expensive, but so too is the appointment of an employee who is inadequately qualified, fails to perform well or leaves the organisation before he or she has been able to make a significant contribution. The time and effort invested in planning the process of recruitment with care will help to ensure that the right person will be appointed, reducing future labour turnover and increasing competitive advantage.

Recruitment is the process of attracting, assessing, selecting and employing people to carry out the work required by a company or an organisation. This checklist focuses on planning and undertaking the initial stages of the process. This involves assessing whether there is a need for additional or replacement staff, identifying the tasks to be carried out, specifying the kind of person needed, finding a pool of suitable candidates and drawing up a shortlist.
