recruited). These are not the same either. These two are not one and the same. Some people use the term “Recruitment” for employment. the function of recruitment precedes the selection function and it includes only finding.. Recruitment is only one of the steps in the entire employment process.e. Some others use the term recruitment for selection.they have to keep the present as well as the future requirements of the organization in mind. the management has to find the places where the required human resources are/will be available and also find the means of attracting them towards the organization before selecting suitable candidates for jobs. All this process is generally known as recruitment. developing the sources of prospective employees and attracting them to apply for jobs in an organization. . Technically speaking. Once the required number and kind of human resources are determined. whereas the selection is the process of finding out the most suitable candidate to the job out of the candidates attracted (i.Formal definition of recruitment would give clear cut idea about the function of recruitment. Recruitment is distinct from Employment and Selection.

DEFINITIONS
Recruitment is defined as, “a process to discover the sources of manpower to meet the requirements of the staffing schedule and to employ effective measures for attracting that manpower in adequate numbers to facilitate effective selection of an efficient workforce.” Edwin B. Flippo defined recruitment as “the process of searching for prospective employees and stimulating them to apply for jobs in the organization.” Recruitment is a ‘linking function’-joining together those with jobs to fill and those seeking jobs. It is a ‘joining process’ in that it tries to bring together job seekers and employer with a view to encourage the former to apply for a job with the latter.

In order to attract people for the jobs, the organization must communicate the position in such a way that job seekers respond. To be cost effective, the recruitment process should attract qualified applicants and provide enough information for unqualified persons to self-select themselves out. Thus, the recruitment process begins when new recruits are sought and ends when their applications are submitted. The result is a pool of applicants from which new employees are selected.

PURPOSES AND IMPORTANCE
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 conjunction 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 leave the organization only after a short period of time. • Begin identifying and preparing potential job applicants who will be appropriate candidates. • Induct outsiders with a new perspective to lead the company. • Infuse fresh blood at all levels of the organization. • Develop an organizational culture that attracts competent people to the company. • Search or head hunt/head pouch people whose skills fit the company’s values. • Devise methodologies for assessing psychological traits. • Search for talent globally and not just within the company. • Design entry pay that competes on quality but not on quantum. • Anticipate and find people for positions that do not exist yet. • 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 job applicants. Recruitment represents the first contact that a company makes with potential employees. It is through recruitment that many individuals will come to know a company, and eventually decide whether they wish to work for it. A well-planned and well-managed recruiting effort will result in highquality applicants, whereas, a haphazard and piecemeal effort will result in mediocre ones. High-quality employees cannot be selected when better candidates do not know of job openings, are not interested in working for the company and do not apply. The recruitment process should inform qualified individuals about employment opportunities, create a positive image of the company, provide enough information about the jobs so that applicants can make comparisons with their qualifications and interests, and generate enthusiasm among the best candidates so that they will apply for the vacant positions. The negative consequences of a poor recruitment process speak volumes about its role in an organization. The failure to generate an adequate number of reasonably qualified applicants can prove costly in several ways. It can greatly complicate the selection process and may result in lowering of selection standards. The poor quality of selection means extra cost on training and supervision. Furthermore, when recruitment fails to meet the organizational needs for talent, a typical response is to raise entry-level pay scales. This can distort traditional wage and salary relationships in the organization, resulting in avoidable consequences.

the function of recruitment seems to be easy. • Stimulating as many candidates as possible and asking them to apply for jobs irrespective of the number of candidates required. a number of factors make performance of recruitment a complex one. Though. . the unsuitable candidates are automatically eliminated. Management has to attract more candidates in order to increase the selection ratio so that the most suitable candidate can be selected out of the total candidates available. Recruitment is positive as it aims at increasing the number of applicants and selection is somewhat negative as it selects the suitable candidates in which process.SUB-SYSTEMS OF RECRUITMENT The recruitment process consists of the following four sub-functions:- • Finding out and developing the sources where the required number and kind of employees will be available. • Employing the techniques to attract candidates. • Developing suitable techniques to attract the desirable candidates.

FACTORS AFFECTING RECRUITMENT The following are the 2 important factors affecting Recruitment:1) INTERNAL FACTORS • Recruiting policy • Temporary and part-time employees • Recruitment of local citizens • Engagement of the company in HRP • Company’s size • Cost of recruitment • Company’s growth and expansion 2) EXTERNAL FACTORS • Supply and Demand factors • Unemployment Rate • Labour-market conditions • Political and legal considerations • Social factors • Economic factors • Technological factors .

The following factors should be taken into consideration in formulating recruitment policy. However. Recruitment policy should commit itself to the organisation’s personnel policy like enriching the organisation’s human resources or servicing the community by absorbing the retrenched or laid-off employees or casual/temporary employees or dependents of present/former employees. internal sources. recruitment policy by itself should take into consideration the government’s reservation policy. etc. social responsibility in absorbing minority sections. etc.

As such the cost of recruitment would be relatively less. • It enables centralised training programmes which further brings uniformity and minimizes average cost of staff. .• It enables the line managers of various units and zones to concentrate on their operational activities by relieving them from the recruiting functions. in selecting and employing the techniques to stimulate the candidates. family background aspects. • Units can recruit candidates as and when they are required without any delay. etc. promotional and transfer procedure.

Both have their own merits and demerits. Alternatively management may decentralize the recruitment of certain categories of employees preferably middle and top level managerial personnel and centralize the recruitment of other categories of employee’s preferably lower level positions in view of the nature of the jobs and suitability of those systems for those categories of positions. Hence. the management has to weigh both the merits and demerits of each system before making a final decision about centralizing or decentralizing the recruitment. Both the systems of recruitment would suffer from their own demerits. SOURCES OF RECRUITMENT The sources of recruitment may be broadly divided into two categories: internal sources and external sources. . Let’s examine these. The management has to find out and develop the sources of recruitment after deciding upon centralizing or decentralizing the recruitment function.• The unit would enjoy better familiarity and control over the employees it recruits rather than on employees selected by the central recruitment agency.
