The purpose of the recruitment and selection process is to find the widest pool of applicants to provide the greatest opportunity to select the best candidatespeople for the required roles in a business.
The objective when advertising is to attract the best applicants to a role. It is important to promote the workplace as a great place to work and one that stands out from the competition.
It is important to start planning for the selection process, including ‘applicant care’. In a tight labour market, maintaining regular contact and a good relationship with applicants, where possible, is important. It helps to give a good first impression of the Company.
Cost is a major reason why effective recruitment and selection is important. There are many ways in which poor recruitment practices can result in financial losses. For example, if a candidate’s competency is not accurately assessed, they may make mistakes that can hinder productivity. If they need to be retrained or replaced, this takes up more company time that could otherwise be invested toward remaining competitive.
