Executive Summary
The Human Resources are the most important assets of an organization. The success or failure of
an organization is largely dependent on the caliber of the people working therein. Without
positive and creative contributions from people, organizations cannot progress and prosper. In
order to achieve the goals or the activities of an organization, therefore, they need to recruit
people with requisite skills, qualifications and experience. While doing so, they have to keep the
present as well as the future requirements of the organization in mind.
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.
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.
The term HR recruiter may sound redundant, as both human resources managers and recruiters
both find job candidates and get them hired, this job is very specific.
Recruiters will work from resumes or by actively soliciting individuals qualified for positions. A
recruiter's job includes reviewing candidate's job experiences, negotiating salaries, and placing
candidates in agreeable employment positions. Recruiters typically receive a fee from the hiring
employers.

How does recruiters/consultant get paid?


A recruitment consultant primarily acts from a position of self interest. Their job is to generate
revenue by making sales. Sales mean selling their service, their ability to find the right candidate,
to prospective employers. In effect they are selling you. This means they will be eager to
champion you, their product, to the employer, likewise they will be keen to ensure that you will
accept the position if offered.

Exactly how a recruitment consultant is paid depends on whether it is a permanent or contract


position. Generally for a permanent placement the company receives a proportion of your salary,
or a set fee agreed with the employer. The more you earn the more they stand to make. Knowing
this should ease any concerns you have; in this you are both on the same side. For a contract the
consultant will receive a margin of your rate.

Human Resource Management and Human Resource Development


Definition:
HRM is the process of managing people in organizations in a structured and thorough
manner. This covers the fields of staffing (hiring people), retention of people, pay and perks
setting and management, performance management, change management and taking care of exits
from the company to round off the activities. This is the traditional definition of HRM which
leads some experts to define it as a modern version of the Personnel Management function that
was used earlier.

HUMAN RESOURCES RECRUITMENT Page 37

We have chosen the term art and science as HRM is both the art of managing people by
recourse to creative and innovative approaches; it is a science as well because of the precision
and rigorous application of theory that is required.
Human Resource Development (HRD) means to develop available manpower through
suitable methods such as training, promotions, transfers and opportunities for career
development. HRD programs create a team of well-trained, efficient and capable managers and
subordinates. Such team constitutes an important asset of an enterprise. One organization is
different from another mainly because of the people (employees) working there in. According to
Peter F. Drucker, "The prosperity, if not the survival of any business depends on the performance
of its managers of tomorrow." The human resource should be nurtured and used for the benefit of
the organization.

Uses of Human Resource Management in an organization:


Human Resource Management (HRM) is the function within an organization that focuses
on recruitment of, management of, and providing direction for the people who work in
the organization. It can also be performed by line managers.
Human Resource Management is the organizational function that deals with issues related
to people such as compensation, hiring, performance management, organization
development, safety, wellness, benefits, employee

motivation, communication,

administration, and training.


HRM is also a strategic and comprehensive approach to managing people and the
workplace culture and environment. Effective HRM enables employees to contribute
effectively and productively to the overall company direction and the accomplishment of
the organization's goals and objectives.
Human

Management

is

away

from

traditional

personnel,

administration, and transactional roles, which are increasingly outsourced. HRM is now

HUMAN RESOURCES RECRUITMENT Page 38

expected to add value to the strategic utilization of employees and that employee
programs impact the business in measurable ways. The new role of HRM involves
strategic direction and HRM metrics and measurements to demonstrate value.
The Human Resource Management (HRM) function includes a variety of activities, and
key among them is responsibility for human resources -- for deciding what staffing needs
you have and whether to use independent contractors or hire employees to fill these
needs, recruiting and training the best employees, ensuring they are high performers,
dealing with performance issues, and ensuring your personnel and management practices
conform to various regulations. Activities also include managing your approach to
employee benefits and compensation, employee records and personnel policies. Usually
small businesses (for-profit or nonprofit) have to carry out these activities themselves
because they can't yet afford part- or full-time help. However, they should always ensure
that employees have -- and are aware of -- personnel policies which conform to current
regulations. These policies are often in the form of employee manuals, which all
employees have.
HRM is widening with every passing day. It covers but is not limited to HR planning,
hiring (recruitment and selection), training and development, payroll management,
rewards and recognitions, Industrial relations, grievance handling, legal procedures etc.
In other words, we can say that its about developing and managing harmonious
relationships at workplace and striking a balance between organizational goals and
individual goals.

Advantages / Importance of HR:

HUMAN RESOURCES RECRUITMENT Page 39

Meeting manpower needs: Every Organization needs adequate and properly qualified staff
for the conduct of regular business activities. Imaginative HRP is needed in order to meet
the growing and changing human resource needs of an organization.
Replacement of manpower: The existing manpower in an Organization is affected due to
various reasons such as retirement and removal of employees and labor turnover. HRP is
needed to estimate the shortfall in the manpower requirement and also for making suitable
arrangements for the recruitment and appointment of new staff.
Meeting growing manpower needs: The expansion or modernization programme may be
undertaken by the enterprise. Manpower planning is needed in order to forecast and meet
additional manpower requirement due to expansion and growth needs through recruitment
and suitable training programs.
Meeting challenges of technological environment: HRP is helpful in effective use of
technological progress. To meet the challenge of new technology existing employees need
to be retrained and new employees may be recruited.
Coping with change: HRP enables an enterprise to cope with changes in competitive
forces, markets, products, and technology and government regulations. Such changes
generate changes in job content, skill, number and type of personals.
Increasing investment in HR: An employee who picks up skills and abilities becomes a
valuable resource because an organization makes investments in its manpower either
through direct training or job assignments.
Adjusting manpower requirements: A situation may develop in; an organization when
there will be surplus staff in one department and shortage of staff in some other
department. Transfers and promotions are made for meeting such situations.
Recruitment and selection of employees: HRP suggests the type of manpower required in
an organization with necessary details. This facilitates recruitment and selection of
suitable personnel for jobs in the Organization. Introduction of appropriate selection tests
and procedures is also possible as per the manpower requirements.

HUMAN RESOURCES RECRUITMENT Page 40

Placement of manpower: HRP is needed as it facilitates placement of newly selected


persons in different departments as per the qualifications and also as per the need of
different departments. Surplus or shortage of manpower is avoided and this ensures
optimum utilization of available manpower.
Training of manpower: HRP is helpful in selection and training activities. It ensures that
adequate numbers of persons are trained to fill up the future vacancies in the Organization.

HR Recruitment:
HUMAN RESOURCES RECRUITMENT Page 42

According to Edwin Flippo, "Recruitment is the process of


searching for prospective employees and stimulating
them to apply for jobs in the Organization."
Recruitment is a continuous process whereby the firm attempts to develop a pool of qualified
applicants for the future human resources needs even though specific vacancies do not exist.
Usually, the recruitment process starts when a manger initiates an employee requisition for a
specific vacancy or an anticipated vacancy.
It is the process to discover sources of manpower to meet the requirement of staffing schedule
and to employ effective measures for attracting that manpower in adequate numbers to facilitate
effective selection of an efficient working force.
Recruitment of candidates is the function preceding the selection, which helps create a pool of
prospective employees for the organization so that the management can select the right candidate
for the right job from this pool. The main objective of the recruitment process is to expedite the
selection process.
Recruitment is almost central to any management process and failure in recruitment can create
difficulties for any company including an adverse effect on its profitability and inappropriate
levels of staffing or skills. Inadequate recruitment can lead to labor shortages, or problems in

HUMAN RESOURCES RECRUITMENT Page 43

management decision making and the recruitment process could itself be improved by following
management theories. The recruitment process could be improved in sophistication with Rodgers
seven point plan, Munro-Frasers five-fold grading system, psychological tests, personal
interviews, etc. Recommendations for specific and differentiated selection systems for different
professions and specializations have been given. A new national selection system for
psychiatrists, anesthetists and dental surgeons has been proposed within the UK health sector.

Need for Recruitment


The need for recruitment may be due to the following reasons /
situations
Vacancies: due to promotions, transfers, retirement, termination, permanent disability,
death and labor turnover.
Creation of new vacancies: due to growth, expansion and diversification of business
activities of an enterprise.
In addition, new vacancies are possible due to job respecification.
The recruitment and selection is the major function of the human resource department and
recruitment process is the first step towards creating the competitive strength and the strategic
advantage for the organisations. Recruitment process involves a systematic procedure from
sourcing the candidates to arranging and conducting the interviews and requires many resources
and time. A general recruitment process is as follows:

Identifying the vacancy:

HUMAN RESOURCES RECRUITMENT Page 44

The recruitment process begins with the human resource department receiving requisitions for
recruitment from any department of the company. These contain:

Posts to be filled
Number of persons
Duties to be performed
Qualifications required

Preparing the job description and person specification.


Locating and developing the sources of required number and type of employees
(Advertising etc).
Short-listing and identifying the prospective employee with required characteristics.
Arranging the interviews with the selected candidates.
Conducting the interview and decision making

The HR Role in Recruitment changed and HRM:


Decides about the design of the recruitment processes and to decide about the split of
roles and responsibilities between Human Resources and Hiring Manager
Decides about the right profile of the candidate
Decides about the sources of candidates
Decides about the measures to be monitored to measure the success of the process
A traditional role of HR in Recruitment was an administrative part of the whole process. The
HRM was responsible for maintaining the vacancies advertised and monitored, but the real
impact of HRM to the performance of the whole recruitment process was minimal.
But as the role of Human Resources in the business was increasing, the HR Strategy was
changed. From making the process working to the real management of HR Processes and the
Recruitment Process was the first to manage.

HUMAN RESOURCES RECRUITMENT Page 45

The role of HR in Recruitment is very important as HRM is the function to work on the
development of the recruitment process and to make the process very competitive on the market.
As the job market gets more and more competitive, the clearly defined HR Role in Recruitment
will be growing quickly. HRM is not a function to conduct all the interviews today, the main role
of Human Resources is to make the recruitment process more attractive and competitive on the
job market.

Scope of HR Recruitment:
HR jobs are one of most important tasks in any company or organization.

picture of what are the possible career options out there for you and which job option
suits you the best.

HUMAN RESOURCES RECRUITMENT Page 46

the management can select the right candidate for the right job from this pool.
Recruitment acts as a link between the employers and the job seekers and ensures the
placement of right candidate at the right place at the right time.

outsourcing helps the HR professionals of the organizations to concentrate on the strategic
functions and processes of human resource management rather than wasting their efforts, time
and money on the routine work.
Outsourcing the recruitment process helps to cut the recruitment costs to 20 % and also provide
economies of scale to the large sized organizations.

HUMAN RESOURCES RECRUITMENT Page 47

Changing Role of Recruitment Intermediaries:


Recruitment consultancies, agencies or intermediaries are witnessing a boom in the demand of
their services, both by the employers and the job seekers. With an already saturated job market,
the recruitment intermediaries have gained a vital position acting as a link between the job
seekers and the employers.
But at the same time, one of the major threats faced by this industry is the growing popularity of
e-recruitment. With the changing demand, technologies and the penetration and increasing use of
internet, the recruitment consultancies or the intermediaries are facing tough competition. To
retain and maintain their position in the recruitment market, the recruitment intermediaries or
consultants (as they are commonly known) are witnessing and incorporating various changes in
terms of their role, functions and the services.

According to a survey amongst top employers, most of them agree with the growing influence of
technology and the Internet on the recruitment processes. 70 per cent of employers reported the
use of application portal on their companys official website. Apart from that, the emerging
popularity of the job portals is also growing.

HUMAN RESOURCES RECRUITMENT Page 49

But the fact that the intermediaries or the consultants are able to provide their expert services,
economies of scale, up to 40 percent savings in the recruitment costs, knowledge of the market,
the candidates, understanding of the requirements, and most importantly, the assess to the
suitable and talented candidates and the structured recruitment processes. The recruitment
intermediaries save the organizations from the tedious of weeding out unsuitable resumes, cocoordinating interviews, posting vacancies etc. give them an edge over the other sources of
recruitment.
To retain their position as the service providers in the recruitment market, the recruitment
intermediaries are providing value added services to the organizations. They are incorporating
the use of internet and job portals, making their services more efficient.
Despite of the growing use of the internet, the recruitment intermediaries are predicted to
continue dominating the recruitment market in the anticipated future.

processes of an organization. It is one of the technological tools facilitated by the information

HR Challenges in Recruitment
Recruitment is a function that requires business perspective, expertise, ability to find and match
the best potential candidate for the organization, diplomacy, marketing skills (as to sell the
position to the candidate) and wisdom to align the recruitment processes for the benefit of the
organization. The HR professionals handling the recruitment function of the organization- are
constantly facing new challenges. The biggest challenge for such professionals is to source or
recruit the best people or potential candidate for the organization.
In the last few years, the job market has undergone some fundamental changes in terms of
technologies, sources of recruitment, competition in the market etc. In an already saturated job
market, where the practices like poaching and raiding are gaining momentum, HR professionals
are constantly facing new challenges in one of their most important function- recruitment. They
have to face and conquer various challenges to find the best candidates for their organizations.
The major challenges faced by the HR in recruitment are:
Adaptability to globalization The HR professionals are expected and required to keep in
tune with the changing times, i.e. the changes taking place across the globe. HR should
maintain the timeliness of the process
Lack of motivation Recruitment is considered to be a thankless job. Even if the
organization is achieving results, HR department or professionals are not thanked for
recruiting the right employees and performers.
Process analysis The immediacy and speed of the recruitment process are the main
concerns of the HR in recruitment. The process should be flexible, adaptive and
responsive to the immediate requirements. The recruitment process should also be cost
effective.

HUMAN RESOURCES RECRUITMENT Page 55

Strategic prioritization The emerging new systems are both an opportunity as well as a
challenge for the HR professionals. Therefore, reviewing staffing needs and prioritizing
the tasks to meet the changes in the market has become a challenge for the recruitment
professionals.

THEORITICAL FRAMEWORK

HUMAN RESOURCES RECRUITMENT Page 70

THEORITICAL FRAMEWORK:
THEORIES REGARDING RECRUITMENT
RECRUITMENT IS TWO WAY STREET:
It takes recruiter and a recruitee: It takes a recruiter and a recruitee recruiter has a choice whom
to recruit and whom not;
As per Behling et al, there are three ways in which a prospective employee makes a decision to
join an organization.

Accordingly, the following three theories of recruitment have been


evolved:
Objective factor theory
Subjective factor theory
Critical contact theory
These theories can be explained as follows:
Objective Factor Theory
It assumes that the applicants are rational. As per this theory, the choice of organization by a
potential employee depends on objective assessment of tangible factors such as;
Pay package, Location, Opportunity per career growth, Nature of work and Educational
opportunities. The employer according to this theory considers certain factors among others;
educational qualification, years of experience and special qualification/experience.

HUMAN RESOURCES RECRUITMENT Page 71

Subjective Factor Theory


The decision making is dominated by social and psychological factors. The status of the job,
reputation of the organization and other similar factors plays an important role.
According to this theory, compatibility of individual personality with the image of organization
is decisive factor in choosing an organization by individual candidate seeking for employment.
These subjective factors are; Personal compatibility for the position, Competence and Best fit.

Critical Factor Theory


The critical factors observed by the candidate during his interaction with the organization play a
vital role in decision making. Recruiter being in touch with the candidate, promptness of
response and similar factors are important. This theory is more valid with the experienced
professionals.
There are instances when a candidate is unable to choose an organization out of alternative based
on Objective and Subjective factor(s) listed above. This is due to many reasons such as limited
contact and insufficient data with regards to the organization or its own inability to analyze and
come to ant conclusion. In such cases, certain critical factors observed by the manager during
interview and contact with personnel of the organization will have profound influence in his
decision process.
It must be noted that, the theoretical base given above by Behling et al was mostly influenced by
the working condition which existed in developed countries like The United States of America
and European countries. In these countries, vacancies are many and there is scarcity of suitable
hands unlike in developing countries like Cameroon where vacancies are less and hands are more
resulting to large scarce unemployment. The theoretical base given above cannot be applied in
developing countries except in hid paid jobs where higher skills and better knowledge are the
prerequisites. In such cases, candidates have variety of choices and he is the master of his choice.
In production, servicing and clerical jobs, unemployment is where the number of job seekers far
exceeds the vacancies.

HUMAN RESOURCES RECRUITMENT Page 72

In such a situation, candidates have little choice and such, grab whatever organization call him or
her for employment. In such a case, the potential organization is in a better place to choose the
candidates from the many available.
Hence, the recruitment process should be that of filtering and re-distributing potential candidates
not only, for actual or anticipated organization vacancies but also searching for prospective
employee.
From Behlings review, it could be assessed that workers output will increase due to certain
objectives of motivating them through regular payment. This will help to influence their working
conditions thereby making them to be effective at work.
Problems arise when unemployment rate is high and the number of those seeking for jobs far
exceeds the vacancies that exist. In this case, candidates have little choice to be offered the job in
the institution. Though they possess the knowledge, education, the process should be to filter and
re-discover their potentials.
When this happens, right (qualified) employees should be placed in the right positions and as a
result, it will lead to an increase in productivity.
Due to the subjective factor of a candidate being best fit for the job, it is not the best procedure to
determine whether his output will increase or decrease but it should be assessed from the critical
factor observed during interview and the contact with the personnel of the organization that will
influence his productivity and his decision making.

PersonalityJob Fit Theory


The personalityjob fit theory postulates that a person's personality traits will reveal insight as to
adaptability within an organization. The degree of confluence between a person and the
organization is expressed as their Person-Organization (P-O) fit. This also referred to as a
personenvironment fit. A common measure of the P-O fit is workplace efficacy; the rate at
which workers are able to complete tasks. These tasks are mitigated by workplace environs- for
example, a worker who works more efficiently as an individual than in a team will have a higher
P-O fit for a workplace that stresses individual tasks (such as accountancy). By matching the
right personality with the right company workers can achieve a better synergy and avoid pitfalls
such as high turnover and low job satisfaction. Employees are more likely to stay committed to
organizations if the fit is 'good'.

HUMAN RESOURCES RECRUITMENT Page 73

In practice, P-O fit would be used to gauge integration with organizational competencies. The
Individual is assessed on these competencies, which reveals efficacy, motivation, influence, and
co-worker respect. Competencies can be assessed using various tools like psychological tests,
competency based interview, situational analysis, etc.
If the Individual displays a high P-O fit, we can say that the Individual would most likely be able
to adjust to the company environment and work culture, and would be able to perform at an
optimum level.

CONCLUSIONS

Polices adopted by EMC are transparent, legal and scientific.

Recruitment is fair.

The recruitment should not be lengthy.

To some extent a clear picture of the required candidate should be made in order to search
for appropriate candidates.

Most of the employees were satisfied but changes are required according to the changing
scenario as recruitment process has a great impact on the working of the company as a
fresh blood, new idea enters in the company.

HUMAN RESOURCES RECRUITMENT Page 77

SUGGESTIONS

Time management is very essential and it should not be ignored at any level of the
process.

Recruitment policy is satisfactory in EMC but the periodicity of recruitment is being


more which needs to be reduced.

Communication, personal and technical skills need to be tested for employees
