Getting the Right People

Recruiting individuals to fill positions is the most critical HR management function undertaken whether the person is being recruited from within or outside the organization. Committed, motivated, and qualified employees will help an organization achieve its purpose and goals. The recruitment process begins by defining the job, seeking a pool of qualified individuals, selecting the best individual for the position and finally orienting the individual to the position and to the organization (if the individual is hired from outside the organization).

When an organization hires, promotes or transfers an employee it is making a commitment to that person. As such, an organization is obligated to ensure that the individual has all reasonable opportunity to perform the job satisfactorily; the goal is to recruit, select and orient the most suitable individuals to the organization.
