Overview

Recruitment is one of the key human resource management functions in any organisation, whatever its size or business. The objective of any recruitment and selection policy is to obtain the right person for the right job at the right time in a cost-effective manner. To achieve this objective, an organisation must involve itself in a number of different processes from human resource planning, right through to selection and induction. The effort and cost in recruiting key skills mean that retention of these skills is a very important part of the process, and of course, the impact of employment legislation must be borne in mind.
