Find the talent you need. Then keep it. 3
Welcome to the third and final part of my quick look at recruitment, I am really skimming the tip of the iceberg here, but its sometimes the fundamental parts we overlook – or bypass in the name of perceived efficiency.
Rules and regulations of recruitment in organisations
• Provide clarification and detail of the core commitments
• Offer step by step support to all those involved, perhaps interviewers, note takers, colleagues offering a view on applicants.
• Ensure you have an unbiased and consistent procedure for the whole process.
• Make the whole process as speedy as you can, move quickly to retain good applicants and keep costs down by increasing efficiency.
Let’s not forget- the whole process of defining a job and attracting applicants for the vacant post, is to attract capable applicants for employment – the process begins when new recruits are sought and ends when their applications are submitted. The result of all this hard work and planning, is a pool of applicants from which a selection of new team members can be created.
Selection is the process of choosing the most appropriate candidate to fill the post, from all those who apply. Selection is the pivotal point between recruitment and retention, hopefully your efforts have gained you several qualified candidates. Now all you must decide is who is the best fit for the job! You need to plan a process that is fair and objective and results in choosing the best person. Taking time to plan will help you to find an individual whose skills and talents will be an asset to your organisation, a person that will want to keep you as an employer as well as engage well with your team and progress in ability and confidence.
