  • 5. Chapter 1: “Introduction” The Human Resources are the most important assets of an organization. The success or failure of an organization is largely dependent on the caliber of the people working therein. Without positive and creative contributions from people, organizations cannot progress and prosper. In order to achieve the goals or the activities of an organization, therefore, they need to recruit people with requisite skills, qualifications and experience. While doing so, they have to keep the present as well as the future requirements of the organization in mind. Recruitment is defined as, “a process to discover the sources of manpower to meet the requirements of the staffing schedule and to employ effective measures for attracting that manpower in adequate numbers to facilitate effective selection of an efficient workforce.” In order to attract people for the jobs, the organization must communicate the position in such a way that job seekers respond. To be cost effective, the recruitment process should attract qualified appli cants and provide enough information for unqualified persons to self-select themselves out. The term “HR recruiter” may sound redundant, as both human resources managers and recruiters both find job candidates and get them hired, this job is very specific. Recruiters will work from resumes or by actively soliciting individuals qualified for positions. A recruiter’s job includes reviewing candidate’s job experiences, negotiating salaries, and placing candidates in agreeable employment positions. Recruiters typically receive a fee from the hiring employers.
  • 6. “Chapter 2: Literature Review” ------------------------------------------------------ 2.1 “What is Recruitment?” • According to Yoder “ Recruitment is a process to discover the sources of manpower to meet the requirements of the staffing schedule and to employ effective measures for attracting that manpower in adequate numbers to facilitate effective selection of an efficient working force.” • According to Edwin Flippo, “Recruitment is the process of searching for prospective employees and stimulating them to apply for jobs in the organization. Sources of Recruitment Every organization has the option of choosing the candidates for its recruitment processes from two kinds of sources: internal and external sources. The sources within the organization itself (like transfer of employees from one department to other, promotions) to fill a position are known as the internal sources of recruitment. Recruitment candidates from all the other sources (like outsourcing agencies etc.) are known as the external sources of recruitment.
  • 7. “Need for Recruitment” The need for recruitment may be due to the following reasons / situations:  Vacancies: due to promotions, transfers, retirement, termination, permanent disability, death and labor turnover.  Creation of new vacancies: due to growth, expansion and diversification of business activities of an enterprise.  In addition, new vacancies are possible due to job specification. The recruitment and selection is the major function of the human resource department and recruitment process is the first step towards creating the competitive strength and the strategic advantage for the organizations. Recruitment process involves a systematic procedure from sourcing the candidates to arranging and conducting the interviews and requires many resources and time. A general recruitment process is as follows:  Identifying the vacancy:  The recruitment process begins with the human resource department receiving requisitions for recruitment from any department of the company. These contain: • Posts to be filled • Number of persons • Duties to be performed • Qualifications required
  • 8.  Preparing the job description and person specification.  Locating and developing the sources of required number and type of employees (Advertising etc.)  Short-listing and identifying the prospective employee with required characteristics.  Arranging the interviews with the selected candidates.  Conducting the interview and decision making. “Changing role of HR in recruitment” • Decides about the design of the recruitment processes and to decide about the split of roles and responsibilities between Human Resources and Hiring Manager • Decides about the right profile of the candidate • Decides about the sources of candidates • Decides about the measures to be monitored to measure the success of the process A traditional role of HR in Recruitment was an administrative part of the whole process. The HRM was responsible for maintaining the vacancies advertised and monitored, but the real impact of HRM to the performance of the whole recruitment process was minimal. But as the role of Human Resources in the business was increasing, the HR Strategy was changed. From making the process working to the real management of HR Processes and the Recruitment Process was the first to manage. The role of HR in Recruitment is very important as HRM is the function to work on the development of the recruitment process and to make the process very competitive on the market. As the job market gets more and more competitive, the clearly defined HR Role in Recruitment will be growing quickly. HRM is not a function to conduct all the interviews today, the main role of Human Resources is to make the recruitment process more attractive and competitive on the job market.

  • 10. “Advantage of Outsourcing Recruitment/Hiring of Consultancy” • Traditionally, recruitment is seen as the cost incurring process in an organization.
