Effective recruitment and selection is essential to the success of any organisation and has a direct impact on the bottom line. Realising the true potential of your business is dependent upon recruiting the right people, with the right skills, expertise and qualifications for the role, enabling them to deliver organisational objectives and contributing positively to the performance, development and profitability of the business.
It is crucial that employers follow a fair and effective recruitment and selection process based only on a candidate’s ability to perform the role and their potential for development within the organisation. Employers should be fully aware of equal opportunities legislation and understand how discrimination can occur both directly and indirectly in the recruitment process. In order to remove any bias from the process it is advised that a structured and in-depth recruitment procedure is implemented and those responsible for recruitment and selection should have the relevant training and experience.
Finding the right candidate can be costly, however, finding the wrong candidate even more so, as unforeseen training may be required, the candidate may leave or you may decide to terminate their employment, thus putting you right back where you started, having incurred unnecessary costs and time.
