What’s Involved in Recruitment?

Recruitment — the filling of vacancies — is a fairly involved process with several steps that include:

  • Determining the characteristics you are looking for
  • Writing an effective job description
  • Sourcing (the art of finding skilled people)
  • Resume screening
  • Interviewing for knowledge, skills and attitude
  • Testing
  • Reference Checks

HOW DO RECRUITMENT STRATEGIES AFFECT MY BUSINESS?

How you recruit and select people can reduce your turnover, improve employee morale and increase productivity — all of which contribute directly to your bottom line. The key is selecting the right strategy for your business. For example, you may find that a policy to promote from within results in lower turnover as employees see that hard work and effort are recognized.
