Recruitment and Selection

Recruitment and Selection: Hiring the Best

recruitment_large_250Recruitment and selection is one of the key processes of any business, often regarded as the most important. Often the process is undertaken with a minimum amount of preparation because most managers believe they have a gut feel for who will do a good job for them. But seat-of-the-pants recruitment is an unwise approach to people management, not least because of the costs of failure. Instead, time taken initially to learn the people management skills of good hiring and selection, pays dividends in the end.
