Recruitment and selection are two of the most important functions of personnel
management. Recruitment precedes selection and helps in selecting a right candidate.
Recruitment is a process to discover the sources of manpower to meet the requirement of the
staffing schedule and to employ effective measures for attracting that manpower in adequate
numbers to facilitate effective selection of efficient personnel.
Staffing is one basic function of management. All managers have responsibility of staffing
function by selecting the chief executive and even the foremen and supervisors have a
staffing responsibility when they select the rank and file workers. However, the personnel
manager and his personnel department is mainly concerned with the staffing function.
Every organisation needs to look after recruitment and selection in the initial period and
thereafter as and when additional manpower is required due to expansion and development
of business activities.
‘Right person for the right job’ is the basic principle in recruitment and selection. Ever
organisation should give attention to the selection of its manpower, especially its managers.
The operative manpower is equally important and essential for the orderly working of an
enterprise. Every business organisation/unit needs manpower for carrying different business
activities smoothly and efficiently and for this recruitment and selection of suitable
candidates are essential. Human resource management in an organisation will not be
possible if unsuitable persons are selected and employment in a business unit.
Recruitment is the Process of finding and attracting capable applicants for employment. The
Process begins when new recruits are sought and ends when their applications are
submitted. The result is a pool of application from which new employees are selected.”
The recruitment process comprises of five interrelated stages viz
Evaluation and Control
Now, a brief description of these follows:
The first step involved in the recruitment process is planning. Here, planning involves to
draft a comprehensive job specification for the vacant position, outlining its major and
minor responsibilities; the skills, experience and qualifications needed; grade and level of
pay; starting date; whether temporary or permanent; and mention of special conditions, if
any, attached to the job to be filled ”.
Once it is known how many with what qualifications of candidates are required, the next
step involved in this regard is to devise a suitable strategy for recruiting the candidates in the
The strategic considerations to be considered may include issues like whether to prepare the
required candidates themselves or hire it from outside, what type of recruitment method to
be used, what geographical area be considered for searching the candidates, which source of
recruitment to be practiced, and what sequence of activities to be followed in recruiting
candidates in the organisation.
This step involves attracting job seekers to the organisation. There are broadly two sources
used to attract candidates.These are:
i. Internal Sources, and
ii. External Sources
INTERNAL SOURCES : Best employees can be found within the organization. When a
vacancy arises in the organisation, it may be given to an employee who is already on the
pay-roll. Internal sources include promotion, transfer and in certain cases demotion. When a
higher post is given to a deserving employee, it motivates all other employees of the
organisation to work hard. The employees can be informed of such a vacancy by internal
advertisement. The Internal Sources Are – Transfers
EXTERNAL SOURCES: All organisations have to use external sources for recruitment to
higher positions when existing employees are not suitable. More persons are needed when
expansions are undertaken. The external sources are –
Schools, Colleges and Universities
Recommendation of Existing Employees
Central Application File
Though some view screening as the starting point of selection, we have considered it as an
integral part of recruitment. The reason being the selection process starts only after the
applications have been screened and shortlisted. Let it be exemplified with an example.In
the Universities, applications are invited for filling the post of Professors. Applications re-
ceived in response to invitation, i.e., advertisement are screened and shortlisted on the basis
of eligibility and suitability. Then, only the screened applicants are invited for seminar
presentation and personal interview. The selection process starts from here, i.e., seminar
presentation or interview.
Job specification is invaluable in screening. Applications are screened against the
qualification, knowledge, skills, abilities, interest and experience mentioned in the job
specification. Those who do not qualify are straightway eliminated from the selection
The techniques used for screening candidates vary depending on the source of supply and
method used for recruiting. Preliminary applications, de-selection tests and screening
interviews are common techniques used for screening the candidates.
5.Evaluation and Control:
Given the considerable cost involved in the recruitment process, its evaluation and control
is, therefore, imperative.
The costs generally incurred in a recruitment process include:
(i) Salary of recruiters.
(ii) Cost of time spent for preparing job analysis, advertisement
(iii) Administrative expenses
(iv) Cost of outsourcing or overtime while vacancies remain unfilled
(v) Cost incurred in recruiting unsuitable candidates
In view of above, it is necessary for a prudent employer to try to answer certain questions
like: whether the recruitment methods are appropriate and valid? And whether the
recruitment process followed in the organisation is effective at all or not? In case the
answers to these questions are in negative, the appropriate control measures need to be
evolved and exercised to tide over the situation.
SELECTION must be differentiated from recruitment, though these are two phases of
employment process. Recruitment is considered to be a positive process as it motivates more
of candidates to apply for the job. It creates a pool of applicants. It is just sourcing of data.
While selection is a negative process as the inappropriate candidates are rejected here.
Recruitment precedes selection in staffing process. Selection involves choosing the best
candidate with best abilities, skills and knowledge for the required job.
Employee Selection is the process of putting right men on right job. It is a procedure of
matching organizational requirements with the skills and qualifications of people. Effective
selection can be done only when there is effective matching. By selecting best candidate for
the required job, the organization will get quality performance of employees. Moreover,
organization will face less of absenteeism and employee turnover problems. By selecting
right candidate for the required job, organization will also save time and money. Proper
screening of candidates takes place during selection procedure. All the potential candidates
who apply for the given job are tested.
The Employee selection Process takes place in following order-
PROCESS OF SELECTION
1. Preliminary Interviews
It is used to eliminate those candidates who do not meet the minimum eligiblity criteria laid
down by the organization. The skills, academic and family background, competencies and
interests of the candidate are examined during preliminary interview. Preliminary interviews
are less formalized and planned than the final interviews. The candidates are given a brief
up about the company and the job profile; and it is also examined how much the candidate
knows about the company. Preliminary interviews are also called screening interviews.
2. Application blanks
Appointment Letter Step 6
The candidates who clear the preliminary interview are required to fill application blank. It
contains data record of the candidates such as details about age, qualifications, reason for
leaving previous job, experience, etc.
3. Written Tests
Various written tests conducted during selection procedure are aptitude test, intelligence
test, reasoning test, personality test, etc. These tests are used to objectively assess the
potential candidate. They should not be biased.
4. Employment Interviews
It is a one to one interaction between the interviewer and the potential candidate. It is used
to find whether the candidate is best suited for the required job or not. But such interviews
consume time and money both. Moreover the competencies of the candidate cannot be
judged. Such interviews may be biased at times. Such interviews should be conducted
properly. No distractions should be there in room. There should be an honest
communication between candidate and interviewer.
5. Medical examination
Medical tests are conducted to ensure physical fitness of the potential employee. It will
decrease chances of employee absenteeism.
6. Appointment Letter
A reference check is made about the candidate selected and then finally he is appointed by
giving a formal appointment letter.

Recruitment is a linking activity bringing together who offer job and who seeking for job.
The purpose of recruitment is to locate source of manpower to meet job requirement and job
Recruitment is regarded as the most important function of personal administration, because
unless the right type of people or hired even the best plans, organization charts and control
system would fail.
Recruitment is the process of searching the candidate and stimulates them for employment.
OBJECTIVES OF RECTRUITMENT: -
To attract people with multi skills and experience that suits the present and future
To infuse fresh blood at all level of organization.
To develop an organizational culture that attracts competent people to the company.
To search out for talent globally and not just with in the company.
PURPOSE AND IMPORTANCE
The general purpose of recruitment is to provide a pool of potentially qualified job
Specifically, the purposes are to:
1. Determine the present and future requirement of the organization in conjunction with its
personnel planning and job analysis activities;
2. Increase the job pool of job candidates at minimum cost;
3. Help increase the success rate of the selection process by reducing the number visibly
under qualified or job application;
4. Help reduce the probability that job applicants, once recruited selected, will leave the
organization only after a short period of time;
5. Meet the organizations legal and social obligation regarding the composition of its
6. Being identifying and preparing potential job applicants who will be appropriate
7. Increase organization individual effectiveness in the short term and long term;
8. Evaluate the effectiveness of various recruiting technique and sources for all types of job
FACTORS AFFECTING RECRUITMENT
There are a number of factors that affect recruitment. These are broadly classified into
1. Internal factors
2. External factors
1. INTERNAL FACTORS
The internal factors also called as “endogenous factors” are the factors within the
organization that affect recruiting personnel in the organization.
Some of these are:-
I. Size of the organization
The size of the organization affects the recruitment process. Larger organization finds
recruitment less problematic than organization with smaller in size.
II. Recruiting policy
The recruitment policy of the organization i.e. recruiting from internal sources and external
sources also affect the recruitment process. Generally, recruitment through internal sources
is preferred, because own employees know the organization and they can well fit in to the
III. Image of the organization
Image of the organization is another factor having its influence on the recruitment process of
the organization. Good image of the organization earned by the number of overt and covert
action by management helps attract potential and complete candidates. Managerial actions
like good public relations, rendering public service like building roads, public parks,
hospitals and schools help earn image or goodwill for organization. That is why chip
companies attract the larger numbers of application.
IV. Image of the job
Better remuneration and working conditions are considered the characteristics of good
image of a job. Besides, promotion and carrier development policies of organization also
attract potential candidates.
2. EXTERNAL FACTORS
Like internal factors, there are some factors external to organization, which have their
influence on recruitment process. Some of these are given below:-
I Demographic factors
As demographics factors are intimately related to human beings, i.e. employees, these have
profound influence on recruitment process. Demographic factors include age, sex, Literacy,
economics status etc
II Labor market
Labor market condition I.e. supply and demand of labor is of particular importance in
affecting recruitment process. E.g. if the demand for specific skill is high relative to its
supply is more than for particular skill, recruitment will be relatively easier.
III Unemployment situation
The rate of unemployment is yet another external factor its influence on the recruitment
process. When the employment rate in an area is high, the recruitment process tends to
simpler. The reason is not difficult to seek. The number of application is expectedly very
high which makes easier to attract the best-qualified applications. The reserve is also true.
With low rate of unemployment, recruiting process tend to become difficult
IV Labor laws
There are several labor laws and regulations passed by the central and state governments
that govern different type of employment. These cover working condition, compensation,
retirement benefits, safety and health of employee in industrial undertakings.
The child Labour Act,1986; for example prohibits employment of children in certain
Similarly several other acts such as the Employment Exchange Act,1958; The Apprentice
Act, 1961; the Factory Act,1948; and The Mines Act, 1952 deal with recruitment.
V Legal consideration
Another external factor is legal consideration with regard to employment reservation of jobs
for schedule tribes, and other backward class (OBC) is the popular examples of such legal
consideration. The supreme court of India has given its verdict in favor of 50 per cent of
jobs and seats. This is so in case admission in the educational institutions also.
SOURCES OF RECRUITMENT
I Present employees:
Promotions and transfer from among the present employees can be good sources of
recruitment. Promotion implies upgrading of an employee to a higher position carrying
higher status, pay and responsibilities. Promotion from among the present employees is
advantageous because the employees promoted are well acquainted with the organization
culture, they get motivated and it is cheaper also. Promotion from among the person
employees also reduces the requirement of job training. However, the disadvantage lies in
limiting the choice of the few people and denying hiring of outsiders who may be better
qualified and skilled. Furthermore, promotion from among present employees also results in
inbreeding, which creates frustration among those not promoted. Transfer refers to shifting
an employee from one job to another without any change in the position/post, status and
responsibilities. The need for transfer is felt to provide employees a broader and carried
base, which is considered necessary for promotion. Job rotation involves transfer of
employees from one job to another job on the lateral basis.
II Former employees:
Former employees are another source of applicant for vacancies to be filled up in the
organization. Retired or retrenched employees may be interested to e come back the
company to work on the part time basis. Similarly, some former employees who had left the
organization for any reason, any come back to work. This source has the advantages of
hiring people whose performance is already known to the organization.
III Employee referrals:
This is yet another internal source of recruitment. The existing employees refer to the family
members, friends and relatives to the company potential candidates for the vacancies to be
filled up in the organization. This source serves as the most effective methods of recruiting
people in the organizations because refer to those potential candidates who meet the
company requirement known to them from their own experience. The referred individuals
are expected to be similar in type in the of race and sex, for example, to those who are
already working in the organization
IV Previous applicant:
This is considered as internal source in the sense that applications from the potential
candidates are already lying with organization. Sometimes the organization contacts though
mail or messengers these applicants to fill up the vacancies particularly for unskilled or
EVALUATION OF INTERNAL SOURCES:
Let us, evaluate the internal source of recruitment. Obviously, it can be done in terms of its
advantage and disadvantage the same are spelled out as follows:
The advantages of the internal source of recruitment include the following:
1. Familiarity with own employees:
The organization has more knowledge and familiarity with the strengths and weaknesses
of its own employees than of strange on unknown outsiders.
2. Better use of the talent:
The policy of internal recruitment also provides an opportunity to the organization to make a
better use of talents internally available and to develop them further and further.
3. Economical recruitment:
In case of internal recruitment, the organization does not need to spend much money, time
and effort to locate and attract the potential candidates. Thus, internal recruitment proves to
be economical, or say, inexpensive.
4. Improves morale:
This method makes employees sure that they would be preferred over the outsiders as and
when they filled up in the organization vacancies.
The promotion through internal recruitment serves as a source of motivation for the
employees to improve their carrier and income. The employees feel that organization feel
that organization is a place where they can build up their life-long career. Besides, internal
recruitment also serves as a means of attracting and retaining employees in the organization.
The main drawback associated with the internal recruitment is as follows:
1. Limited choice:
Internal recruitment limits its choice to the talents available within the organization. Thus, it
denies the tapping of talents available in the vast labor market outside the organization.
Moreover, internal recruitment serves as a means for “inbreeding”, which is never healthy
for the future organizations.
2. Discourage competition:
In this system, the internal candidates are protected from competition by not giving
opportunity to otherwise competent candidates from outside the organization. This in turn,
develops a tendency among the employees to take the promotion without showing extra
3. Stagnation of skills:
With the feeling that internal candidates will surely get promoted, their skill in the long run
may become stagnant or obsolete. If so, productivity and sufficiency of
the organization, in turn, decreases.
4. Creates conflicts:
Conflicts and controversies surface among the internal candidates, whether or not they
External sources of recruitment lie outside the organization. These outnumber internal
sources. The main ones are listed as follows:
I Employment exchanges:
The national commission labor (1969) observed in its report that in the pre-independence
era, the main source of labor war rural areas surrounding the industries. Immediately after
independence, national employment services were established to bring employer and job
seeker together. In response to it, the compulsory notification of vacancies act of 1959
(Commonly called employment exchange act) was instituted which become operative in
1960.the main functions of these employment exchanges with the branches in most cities are
registration of job seeker and tier placement in the notified vacancies. It is obligatory for
employer to inform about the outcome of selection within 15 days to the employment
exchange. Employment exchange is particularly useful in recruiting blue-collar, white-
collar and technical workers.
II Employment agencies:
In addition to the government agencies, there are number of private agencies that
register candidates for employment and furnish a list of suitable candidates from the data
bank as and when sought by the prospective employer. Generally, these agencies select
personnel for supervisory and the higher levels. The main function of these agencies is to
invite application and short-list the suitable candidates for the organization. Of course, the
representative of the organization takes the final decision on selection. The employer
organizations derive several advantages through this source. The time saved in this method
can be better utilized elsewhere by the organization. As the organizational identity remains
unknown to the job speakers, it, thus, avoid receiving letters and attempts to influence.
This method of recruitment can be used for jobs like clerical, technical, and managerial. The
higher the position in the organization, the more specialized the skills or the shorter the
supply of that resources in the labour market, the more widely dispersed the advertisement
are likely to be. For instance, the search for a top executive might include advertisements in
a national daily like the Hindu. Some employers/companies advertise their post by giving
them post box number of the name of some recruiting agency. This is done to particular
keep own identity secret to avoid unnecessary correspondence with the applicants. However
the disadvantage of these blind advertisement, i.e., post box number is that the potential job
seekers are the hesitant without unknowing the image of the organization, on the one hand,
and the bad image/ reputation that the blind advertisement have received because of the
organizations that placed such advertisements without position lying vacant just to know
supply of labor/ workers in the labor market, on the other. While preparing advertisement, a
lot of care has to be taken to make it clear and to the point. It must ensure that some self-
selection among applicant take place and only qualified applicant responds the
advertisement copy should be prepared by using a four-point guide called AIDA . The
letters in the acronym denote that advertisement should attract Attention, gain Interest,
arouse a Desire and result in action.
However, not many organizations mention complete detail about job positions in there
advertisement. What happened is that ambiguously worded and broad-based
advertisements may generate a lot irrelevant application, which would, by necessity,
increasing the cost of processing them.
IV Professional Associations
Very often, recruitment for certain professional and technical positions is made
through professionals association also called ‘Headhunters’. Institute of Engineers, All
India Management Association, etc., provide placement service to the members. The
professional associations prepare either list of jobseekers or publish or sponsor journal
or magazines containing advertisements for their member. It is particularly useful for
attracting highly skilled and professional personnel. However, in India, this is not a
very common practice and those few provide such kind service have not been able to
generating a large number of application.
V Campus Recruitment
This is another source of recruitment. Though campus recruitment is a common
phenomenon particularly in the American organizations, it has made rather recently.
Of late, some organizations such as HLL, HCL, L&T, Citibank, Cadbury ANZ Grind
lays, etc., in India have started visiting educational and training institute/ campuses
for recruitment purposes. Many Institutes have regular placement cells / offices to serve
liaison between the employer and the students. Tezpur Central University has one
Deputy Director (Training and Placement) for purpose of campus recruitment and
The method of campus recruitment offers certain advantages to the employer organizations.
First, the most of the candidates are available at one place; second, the interviews
are arranged at short notice; third, the teaching is also met; fourth, it gives them
opportunity to sell the organization to a large students body who would be
graduating subsequently. The disadvantages of this of recruitment are that
organizations have to limit their selection to only “entry’’ positions and they
interview the candidates who have similar education and experience, if at all.
Another source of recruitment is deputation I.e., sending an employees to another
organization for the short duration of two to three years. This method of recruitment
is practice in a pretty manner, in the Government department and public sector
organization does not have to incurred the initial cast of induction and training.
However, the disadvantages of this of deputation is that deputation period of
two/three year is not enough for the deputed employee to provide employee to prove
his/her mettle, on the one hand, and develop commitment with organization to
become part of it, on the other.
Some organizations in India also practice the “word-of-mouth’’ method of recruitment. In
this method , the word is passed around the vacancies or opening in the organization.
Another from of word-of-mouth method of “employee-pinching’’ i.e., the employee
In another organization is offered by the rival organization. This method is economic, in
terms of both time and money. Some of the organization maintain a file applications and
sent a bio-data by a job seeker. These serve as a very handy as when there is vacancy in
the organization. The advantage of this method is no cost involved in recruitment.
However, the disadvantages of this method of recruitment are non- availability of the
candidates when needed choice of candidates is restricted to a too small number.
VII Raiding or Poaching:
This is another sources of recruitment whereby the rival firm by offering terms and
conditions, try to attract qualified employees to join the. This raiding is a common feature
in the Indian organizations. For instance, service executive of HMT left to join Titan Watch
Company, so also exodus of pilot from Indian Airlines to join the private air taxi operator.
In fact, raiding has become challenge for the human resource manager.
Besides these, walk - ins, contractors, radio and television, acquisitions and merger,
etc., art some other sources of recruitment used by organization.
EVALUATION OF EXTERNAL SOURCES:
Like the internal source of recruitment, external sources are mixed of advantages and
1. Open process
Being a more open process, it is likely to attract a large number of applicants/application.
The, in turn, widens it option of selection.
2. Availability of Talented Candidates:-
With the large pool of applicants, it becomes possible for organization to have talented
candidates from the outside. Thus, it introduces new blood in the organization.
3. Opportunity to Select the Best Candidate;
With the large pool of applicants, selection process becomes competitive. This increases
prospects for selection the best candidates.
4. Provides healthy competition:
As the external members are supposed to be more trained and efficient. With such a
background, they work with the positive attitude and greater vigor. This helps create healthy
competition and conductive work environment in the organization.
However, the external sources of recruitment suffer from certain disadvantages too, these
1. Expensive and time consuming:
This method of recruitment is both expensive and time consuming. There is no guarantee
that organization will get good and suitable candidates.
2. Unfamiliarity with the Organization:
As candidates some outside the organization, they are not familiar with tasks, job
nature and the international scenario of the organization.
3. Discourage the Existing Employee:
Existing employees are not sure to get promotion. This discourages them to do the hard
work. This, in turn, boils down to decreasing productivity of the organization.
PURPOSE AND IMPORTANCE OF RECRUITMENT
The general purpose of recruitment is to provide a pool of potentially qualified job
candidates. Specifically, the purposes are to:
Determine the present and future requirements of the organization in conjuction with its
personnel planning and job-analysis activities.
Increase the pool of job candidates at minimum cost.
Help increase the success rate of the selection process by reducing the number of visibly
under qualified or overqualified job applicants.
Help reduce the probability that job applicants, once recruited and selected, will receive
the organization only after a short period of time.
Meet the organization’s legal and social obligations regarding the composition of its
Begin identifying and preparing potential job applicants who be appropriate candidates.
Increase organizational and individual effectiveness in the short term and long term.
Evaluate the effectiveness of various recruiting techniques and sources for all types of
FACTORS GOVERNING RECRUITMENT

several factors. These include external as well as internal forces.
Supply and Demand
Size of the firm
Growth and Expansion

SELECTION : SELECTING THE BEST EMPLOYEES
Whatever form the applications take, there may be a need to sift them before moving on to
the interview stage. Such a sift serves to match the applicants as closely as possible to the
job and person specification and to produce a shortlist of people to interview. To avoid any
possibility of bias, such sifting should be undertaken by two or more people, and it should
involve the direct line manager/supervisor as well as personnel. The sifting stage can also
help the organisation by providing feedback on the advertising process and the suitability of
the application form. It can also identify people who might be useful elsewhere in the
organisation. If references or medicals are to be taken up before the invitation to interview
stage, it should be made clear on the application form/information pack sent to the applicant.
WHO MAKES THE DECISION?
In some companies there will be a personnel or human resource specialist who will
undertake most of the sifting and short listing. It is very important that the line
manager/supervisor for the job also be involved, both at the job and person specification
stage and at the interview stage. The final selection will thus normally be a joint decision,
except in those very small companies where only a line manager/supervisor is available to
do the recruitment of staff.
There is a variety of methods available to help in the selection process - including
interviews, tests (practical or psychometric), assessment centres, role plays and team
exercises, to name a few. Usually a range of methods will be used by the organisation
depending on the type of job to be filled, the skills of the recruiter and the budget for
Most jobs are filled through interviews. The interview has two main purposes - to find out if
the candidate is suitable for the job, and to give the candidate information about the job and
the organisation. Every candidate should be offered the same opportunities to give the best
presentation of themselves, to demonstrate their suitability and to ask questions of the
A structured interview designed to discover all relevant information and assess the
competencies of the applicant is an efficient method of focusing on the match between job
and candidate. It also means that there is a consistent form to the interviews, particularly
important if there are a number of candidates to be seen.
Unstructured interviews are very poor for recruiting the right person. The structured
interview is most likely to be effective in obtaining specific information against a set of
clearly defined criteria. However, not every manager is skilled at interviewing, and may not
be able to judge efficiently the applicant's skills and competencies. Ideally all interviewers
should receive training, including the equal opportunities aspects of recruitment and the
PREPARING THE INTERVIEW
The reading the application form, job and person specifications to identify areas which
need further exploration or clarification
Interviewer should prepare by planning the questions. In some interviews it is
appropriate to ask only one or two questions to encourage the candidate to talk at length
on certain subjects. In others it may be better to ask a series of short questions on several
different areas. If there is more than one interviewer, different people can cover different
topics, eg job knowledge, training, qualifications. Do not ask for personal information or
views irrelevant to the job. Do not ask potentially discriminatory questions such as 'Are
you planning to have children in the next few years?'
Being ready for the candidates' questions, and trying to anticipate what additional
information they may seek.
CONDUCTING THE INTERVIEW
Conduct the interview in an environment that will allow candidates to give of their best.
Arrange for there to be no interruptions, divert telephone calls, welcome the candidate(s),
and show them cloakroom facilities, etc
If possible, let the candidate have a brief tour of the place of work. This is particularly
useful in the case of people new to the job market (school-leavers, returning men and
women), who may have little or no experience of what to expect in a workplace. It may also
prove valuable in offering an additional opportunity to assess the candidate's interaction
with possible colleagues.
Consider whether any adjustments need to be made to accommodate an interviewee who has
indicated a disability on the application form - it is easy to overlook simple adjustments that
may be reasonable to make:
Candidates with hearing impairment may not only need to be able to clearly see the
interviewer as they are talking, but may need communication support if they are not to be
placed at a disadvantage
Is there an alternative to steps for access to the building? Can the interview take place
elsewhere, where access might be easier for someone with a physical disability?
After identifying the sources of human resources, searching for prospective employees and
stimulating them to apply for jobs in an organization, the management has to perform the
function of selecting the right employees at the right time. The objective of the selection
decision is to choose the individual who can most successfully perform the job from the
pool of qualified candidates. The selection procedure is the system of functions and devices
adopted in a given company to ascertain whether the candidate’s specifications are matched
with the job specifications and requirements or not.
ESSENTIALS OF SELECTION PROCESS: -
The selection process can be successful if the following requirements are satisfied:
Some one should have the authority to select. This authority comes from the
There must be some standard of personnel with which a prospective employee may be
compared i.e. a comprehensive job description and job specification should be available
There must be a sufficient number of applicants from whom the required number of
employees may be selected.
There is a no standard selection process that can be followed by all the companies in all the
areas. Companies may follow different selection techniques or methods depending upon the
size of the company, nature of the business, kind and number of persons to be employed,
government regulations to 0be followed etc. Thus, each company may follow any one or
the possible combinations of methods of selection in the order convenient or suitable to it.
Following are the selection methods generally followed by the company.
Selection procedure employs several methods of collecting information about the
candidate’s qualifications, experience, physical and mental ability, nature and behavior,
knowledge, aptitude and the like for judging whether a given applicant is or is not suitable
for the job. Therefore, the selection procedure is not a single act but is essentially a series of
methods or stages by which different types of information can be secured through various
selection techniques. At each step, facts may come to light, which are useful for comparison
with the job requirements an employee specification.
RECRUITMENT & SELECTION IN ESCORTS PVT. LTD.
When we talking about the recruitment and selection process in company, the recruitment
and selection process is very standardized.

When we talking about the recruitment the first process is the Man Specification Sheet
after that the second process is Manpower Requisition Form.
“Man Specification Form” specifies that which candidate is needed for which post with
his / her essential and desirable qualification, skills and also carries the necessary
information about the skills set of the required candidate.
With the help of this form every person can easily understand that what is the hierarchy
system of each position and what are the various competencies are required for which level.
It includes the various parameters like, which are mentioned below:-
Specific Training / Specialization
The format of Man Specification form is given in annexure (at page no.65 ) which is used in
. Manpower Requisition Form
When a supervisor finds there is a need to hire a new employee, whether to replace a
terminating employee or because of an increase or change in workload, the first step will be
to complete a Position Requisition form and forward it to the Department Chair or
Administrative Manager for approval. The purpose of this form is to establish a valid need
for the new position, indicate that funding and space are available, and provide a source
document for posting the position. A job description, detailing all essential position
functions, required education and experience, should be attached. Human Resources is
available for assistance.
Position requisition assessed by Human Resources
Upon approval by the Department Chair or Administrative Manager, the Position
Requisition will be forwarded to Human Resources to assess that:
the special duties described are consistent with the position description and grade;
the education and experience specified are consistent with the position description and
The format of Manpower requisition form is given in annexure (page no. 66) which clearly
specifies that how useful information it contains;
In ESCORTS there are three major sources of recruitment of the employees i.e.
Recruitment through Campus Placements
Recruitment through Consultants
Recruitment through References.
RECRUITMENT THROUGH CAMPUS PLACEMENTS
The recruited candidate as designates as per their qualification as described below:
Degree holder in engineering candidate is appoint as a” GET”,
Diploma holder in engineering is appoint a”DET”and
Management degree holder candidate is appointed as a”MT”.
TRAINING INDUCTION SCHEDULE IN ESCORTS PVT LTd
When the candidate joins the company, training induction schedule is prepared for the
Through this the candidate can able to know about the organization, can be able to know
about their superior and subordinate so that it help the candidate to work comfortably.
Introducing the new employee who is designated as a probationer to the job, job location,
surroundings, organizations, organizations surroundings, and various employees is the final
stage of employment process. Some of the companies do not company do not lay emphasis
on this function as they view that the colleagues of the new employees will automatically
perform this function. This processes gains more significance as the rate of turnover is high
among new employees compared to that among senior employees. This is mainly because of
the problem of adjustment adaptability to the new surrounding and environment. Further
induction is essential as the new comer may feel insecure, shy, nervousness and disturbing.
This situation leads to instability. Hence, induction plays pivotal role in acquainting the new
employee environment, company rules and regulations.
Induction is the process of receiving and welcoming an employee when he/she first joins a
company and giving him the basic information he needs to settle down quickly and happily
and start work.
Lecture, handbook, film, group seminar are used to information to new employees about the
environment of the job and the organization in order to make the new employee acquaint
himself with the following heads.
About the Company
About the Department
About he Superiors, Subordinates etc.

A very good sign for any organisation where its employees follow ethics and values and
also feel the presence of it in the organisation
The two months training period has been a very valuable experience for me from the entire
study conducted. I have become well acquainted with policies laid by the HR
DEPARATMEN in an organization
Recruitment and selection are getting very much importance these days in the organization.
It is very critical thing to evaluate the human resources.
It is a systematic procedure that involves many activities. The process includes the step like
HR planning attracting applicant and screening them. It is very important activity as it
provides right people in right place at right time. It is not an easy task as organization’s
future is depends on this activity. If suitable employees are selected which are beneficial to
the organization it is at safe side but if decision goes wrong it can be dangerous to the
organization. So it is an activity for which HR department gets very much importance.
Recruitment and selection procedure and its policies changed as per the organization.
Its importance also gets changed as the organization changed.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Bottom Line of HR initiatives
As my scope of study is on recruitment process and recruitment process is the foremost &
important process in every organization.
Tie up with more & more consultants from multiple segments.
Know what you're looking for in candidates.
The company should made online process for filling PP Form and the PI form i.e the
predictive index form so that the process become less time consuming and shortlisting of
candidates should be done more easily which can help the organizationto call up only
thoseperson who are eligible and fit to their vacancyand can save money and time both.
The organization need some more professionals in the HR department which help the
organization to achieve their goals and to move the process smoothly and fastly.
Punching machine should be put on one place with a security guard so that chance of
proxy will reduce.
ESCORT GROUP Limited should improve upon its advertising and services for
attracting more customers.
Better incentives and additional benefits should be provided to meet the competitive
threat in growing market.
They should go for newer techniques of the Recruitment & Selection.
The company should try to celebrate the diversity to reduce the work force diversity.
The should try to reduce the organizational challenges i.e. competitive position,
decentralization and downsizing.
The should try to reduce the environmental challenges i.e. the internet revolution and
