Lesson 3: Recruitment
Recruitment is the process of seeking and attracting the right kind of people to apply for a job in an organization. Recruitment in any organization is effected by various internal and external factors. Internal factors include the recruitment policy, time and cost constraints etc. External factors include the situation in the economy, the job market, the industry etc. The recruitment policy of an organization effectively defines and determines the pattern, the sources and the methods of recruitment of the firm. A good recruitment policy is based on the organization’s objectives, complies with the government policy, and results in successful placements in the organization at the minimum cost and time. It provides the basic framework in the form of guidelines, procedures and sources for recruitment.
