Preface

An organization is nothing without human resource. It is vital foundation for the growth of any
organization, much more so for an organization, which provides services on a global scale.
Human resource management (HRM) is concerned with the “people” dimension in the
management. Since every organization is made up of people, acquiring their services, developing
their skills, motivating them to high levels of performances, & ensuring that they continue to
maintain their commitment to the organization are essential to achieve organizational objectives.

Due to tremendous change in the society, science and technology, many complexities have arisen
due to the industrial system. Whereas the limitation of the machine is restricted to its
specification that of human being is unlimited if it is tapped in the right way. Accordingly, all
kinds of organization seem to be growing steadily with the importance of people as a resource.
The success of an organization depends to a great extent upon the people, they are one of the
most valuable resources for an organization excellence, and that all people can grow & develop
when opportunities are provided to them.

They are the most important resource of an organization An organization depends basically upon
the leadership of the manager in a competitive business world. The primary responsibility of a
manager is to develop people working at all levels-“it is the people in the organization which
provide their competitive advantage

Executive Summary

This project is a study done on “ Recruitment& Selection Process” at ICICI Lombard Gic
.co. Ltd.Lucknow.

The study is done to test the relevance of the theoretical studies done in classroom and also to
analyze the effectiveness of the whole HR practice in the organization.

I have mentioned the conceptual study of these topics in my report in order to compare the actual
practice with the theories.

The analysis is done through the means of questionnaire, which was served, to the management
who is involved in the policy making and the Selection process.

The study also finds out that the management gives equal weightage to all the four parameters.
Skill, Experience, Training and overall personality while selecting a candidate.

I have also observed that the HR Department coordinates well with other departments and
maintain a cordial relation with all the employees of the organization.

Objective of the study

This study investigates on the uses of Human Resource Interventions offered to the employees in
Insurance Industry for their personal as well as organizational development. This study also
sought to recognize the importance of Human Resource Management in achievement of
sustainable growth and success of the business by the means of different HR Interventions.
Opportunities are created, by means of the reporting structures and structured interventions, to
capture the skills of the individuals (employees) to add value to the business they belong to and
to the group as a whole.
Also building required competencies in people enable them to perform their roles to meet the
changes in the business and building a pipeline of leaders.

The objective also includes:-

1. To compare an ideal HRD Climate with the existing HRD Climate of ICICI Lombard by
involving both; the individual concerned and the department heads.
2. To study the existing Organization structure of ICICI Lombard gic.co. Limited.
3. To identify human resource planning and needs of the organization.
4. To suggest measures to make HRD Climate more effective.
5. To suggest measures to improve the organization structure.

Significance of the study

To the Researcher:
This study was being undertaken to compare an ideal HRD climate with the existing HRD
climate and to suggest measures to make it more effective. Since, HRD is a continuous process
to ensure the development of employee competencies, dynamism, motivation and effectiveness
in a systematic and planned way and also HRD Climate survey is a starting point for examining
and reviewing the HRD Climate, there was felt the need for launching the project by the HRD
department.

To the Company:

In the Organizational context, a climate survey can be a powerful tool in the


organization improvement. This survey will provide data for changing practices
or provide an index against which to compare trends.
The above-mentioned project will help the organization in collecting feedback about the present
HRD Climate. The improvement suggested by the employees incorporated by the HRD will
motivate the employees and will help in making better understanding, of the strength and
weaknesses of the HRD Climate and design corrective action steps there upon.

“Manpower” or “Human resource” may be thought of as “the total knowledge, skills, creative
abilities, talents and aptitudes of an organization’s work force, as well as the values, attitudes and
benefits of an individual involve. It is the sum total of inherent abilities, acquired knowledge and
skills represented by the talent and aptitudes of the employed persons.” Of all the “Ms” in
management (i.e., the management of Materials, Machines, Methods, Money, Motive power),
the most important is “M” for Men or human resources. It is the most valuable asset of an
organization, and not the money or physical equipment.

Human resources are utilized to the maximum possible extent in order to achieve individual an
organizational goals. An organization’s performance and resulting productivity are directly
proportional to the quantity and quality of its human resources.

DEFINITIONS:

39
Human resource or manpower planning is “the process by which a management determines how
an organization should move from its current manpower position to its desired manpower
position. ‘Through planning, a management strives to have the right number and the right kind of
people at the right places, at the right time, to do things, which result in both the organization and
the individual receiving the maximum long-range benefit.

Coleman Bruce. P:
“Manpower planning is the process of determining human resource requirements and the means
of meeting those requirements in order to carry out the integrated plans of the organization”
Giesler:
“Manpower planning is a process by which the firm ensures that it has right number of people,
right type of people, at right places, at right time doing work of which they can be economically
most useful”

Wickstorm:
Human resource planning consists of a series of activities, viz.

A. Forecasting future manpower requirements, either in terms of mathematical projections of


trends in the economic environment an development in industry, or in terms of judgmental
estimates based upon the specific future plans of a company;

B. Making an inventory of present manpower resources and assessing the extent to which these
resources are employed optimally;

C. Anticipating manpower problems by projecting present resources in the future and


comparing them with the forecast of requirements to determent their adequacy, both
quantitatively and qualitatively; and

40
D. Planning the necessary program of requirement, selection, training, development, utilization,
transfer, promotion, motivation and compensation to ensure that future manpower
requirements are properly met.

NEED FOR MANPOWER PLANNING:

(1) To carry on its work, each organization needs personnel with the necessary qualifications,
skills, knowledge, work experience and aptitude for work. These are provided through
effective manpower planning.

(2) Since a large number of persons have to be replaced who have grown old, or who retire, die
or become incapacitated because of physical or mental ailments, there is a constant need for
replacing such personnel. Otherwise, the work would suffer.

(3) Human resource planning is essential because of frequent labour turnover which is
unavoidable and even beneficial because it arises from factors which are socially and
economically sound such as voluntary quits, discharges, marriage, promotions, or factors
such as seasonal and cyclical fluctuations in business which cause constant ebb and flow in
the workforce in many organizations.

(4) In order to meet the needs of expansion programs human resource planning is unavoidable
(it becomes necessary due to increase in the demand for goods of the same goods and
services with growing population, a rising standard or living --- large quantities of the same
goods and services are required.

(5) Nature of the present workforce in relation to its changing needs also The necessitates the
recruitment of new labour. To meet the challenge of a new and changing technology and
new techniques of production, existing employees need to be trained or new blood injected
in an organization.

41
(6) Manpower planning is also needed in order to identify areas of surplus personnel or areas in
which there is a shortage of personnel. If there is a surplus, it can be redeployed; and if there
is shortage it can be filled.

(A) Importance of Manpower Planning:

Manpower planning fulfills individual, organizational and national goals. The main purpose is
one of matching or fitting employee’s abilities to enterprise requirements, with an emphasis on
future instead of present arrangements. The objectives may be laid down for a short-term (i.e.,
for one year). For example, the short-term objective may be to hire 25 persons from Scheduled
tribes or Backward Class for purposes of purposes of training. The long-term objective may be to
start a new industry, to expand the market, to produce a new product, to develop its own sales
force rather than depend on distributors, or to have minority group members eventually in
position of middle and upper management cadres.

(B) Forecasting the Manpower Requirements:

The management must estimate the structure of the organization at a given point in time. For this
estimate, the number and type of employees needed have to be determined; many environment
factors affect this determination. They include business forecasts, expansion and growth, design
and structural changes, management philosophy, government policy, product and human skills
mix, and competition.

After estimating what the future organization structure should be, the next step is to draw up the
requirements of human resources, both for the existing departments and for new vacancies.

In determining the requirements of human resources, the expected losses which are likely to
occur through labour turnover --- quits, retirement, death, transfers, promotions, demotions,
dismissals, disability, resignations, lay-offs, and other separations --- should be taken into
account.
42
It may be noted that for purposes of manpower planning, the main dimensions to be taken
into consideration are:

(i) The total number of personnel available, this could be obtained from the payrolls and
other personnel records, such as the applications for employment.

(ii) The job-family, i.e., a detailed job-description for each position such as stenographers
who may belong to various departments, e.g., finance, marketing, personnel, public
relations, general administration, etc.

(iii) Age distribution of the employees, available in the present departments, says in the age
groups 20-29 years; 30-45 years; 46 years and above.

(iv) Qualification and experience desired, such as a person with 5 years or 10 years
experience in a particular branch/job; or with under-graduate, post-graduate degree,
diploma holders, etc.; or with specialized knowledge in the field of House Keeping, Food
& Beverage (both production & service), Front Office, Security, Sales & Marketing,
Finance, Engineering work.

(v) The salary range, etc.

(C) Auditing Human Resource:

Once the future human resource needs are estimated, the next step is to determine the present
supply of manpower resources. This is done through what is called “Skills Inventory.” A skills
inventory contains data about each employee’s skills, abilities, work preference and other items
of information that indicate his overall values to the company.

Some organizations do not compile a Skills Inventory but prepare Organization Charts to
determine “how many people, at what level, in what position and what kind of person’s age, the
number of years he has been in a particular position, and his fitness for promotion. Once the

43
present manpower resources are determined, the personnel department can estimate what
changes will occur in the present labour force in the next few years, say, 5 years

(D) Job Analysis:

After having decided how many persons would be needed, it is necessary to prepare a job
analysis, which records details of training, skills, qualifications, includes the preparation of job
description and job specifications. This has been discussed in the later section of this chapter.

(E) Developing a Human Resource Plan:

This step refers to the development and implementation of the human resource plan, which
consists in finding out the sources therefore, is to decide on the policy - should the personnel be
hired from within through promotional channels or should it be obtained from an outside source.
The best policy that is followed by most organization is to fill up higher vacancies by promotion
and lower level position by recruitment from the labour market.

RECRUITMENT & SELECTION PROCESS AT ICICI LOMBARD

RECRUITMENT:-

50
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.

51
• 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 high-quality 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. Thus, the effectiveness of
a recruitment process can play a major role in determining the resources that must be expended
on other HR activities and their ultimate success.

Recruitment needs are of three types (SCOPE 0f STUDY)-:

1. Planned -: planned needs arise from changes in the organization and retirement
policies.
2. Anticipated -: these are those movements in personnel, which an organization can
predict by studying trends in the internal and external environment.
3. Unexpected -: resignations, deaths, accidents and illness give rise to unexpected
needs.
4. Some interesting thing about recruitment

52
1. Recruitment is a process or a series of activities rather than a single act or event.
2. jobs.
3. Recruitment is a positive function as it seeks to develop a pool of eligible persons from
which most suitable person can be selected.
4. Recruitment is an important function as it makes it possible to acquire the number and
type of persons necessary for the continued functioning of the organization.
5. Recruitment is a pervasive function as all the organizations engage in recruiting
activities.
6. Recruitment is a complex job because too many factors affect it. E.g., image of the
organization, nature of jobs offered organizational policies, working conditions and
compensation levels in an organization, rate of growth of an, organization, past
recruitment record, employment conditions in a community, trade union attitude, labor
laws, culture and environment, government policies. Most of these factors serve as
constraints restricting the freedom of management in recruitment.
7. The basic purpose of recruitment is to locate the sources of people required to meet job
requirements and attracting such people to offer them for employment in an organization.
8. Recruitment is a two way process. It takes a recruiter and a recruiter. Just as the recruiter
has a choice whom to recruit or not, similarly the prospective employee can choose for
which organization to apply for a job.

Sources of recruitment:-

57
Source of Recruitment:

Basically organizations are available by the two main sources of recruitment which are:

I. External Recruitment.

II. Internal Recruitment.

Vacancies in upper level management can be filled either by hiring people from outside the
organization or by promoting lower level mangers. Both strategies have advantages and
disadvantages. We will consider both internal and external recruitment sources in detail:

I. Internal Recruiting Sources:

When job vacancies exist, the first place that an organization should look for placement is within
itself. An organization’s present employees generally feel that they deserve opportunities to be
promoted to higher-level

positions because of their service and commitment to organization. More over organizations
have opportunities to examine the track records of its present employees and to estimate which
58
of them would be successful. Also recruiting among present employees is less expensive than
recruiting from outside the organization. The major forms of the internal recruiting include:

1. Promotion from within.


2. Job posting.
3. Contacts and referrals

a. Promotion from within:

Promoting entry level employees to more responsible positions is one of the best ways to fill job
vacancies and important reason why company should have a human resource planning system.
An organization that has human resource planning system uses succession plans and replacement
charts to identify and prepare individuals for upper level positions. Skills inventories are useful
in identifying individuals who have the potential for advancement, and individual’s desire to be
promoted can be assessed in the performance appraisal review. A promotion from within policy
is intrinsic to career development and human resource planning. A promotion from within policy
can stimulate great motivation among employee, and this motivation is often accompanied by a
general improvement in the employee morale.

b. Job posting

An organization can also use the policy of job posting as a internal recruitment source. In the job
posting system the organization notifies its present employees about job openings through the
use of bulletin boards, company publications, or personal letters. The purpose of the job posting
is to communicate that the job opening exists. An effective job posting system involves the
following guidelines:

Job posting should be prominent. Clear job specification should be communicated so that
applicants assess themselves either they are eligible to apply or not. Once the decision is made,
all applicants should be informed about the decision. Job posting systems generally work quite
well.

c. Contacts and Referrals:

Many firms have found that their employees can assist in the recruitment process. Employees
may actively solicit applications from their friends and associates. Before going outside to
recruit employees, many organizations ask present employees to encourage friends or relatives to
apply for the job openings. Contacts and referrals from the present employees are valuable
sources of recruits. Employee referrals are relatively inexpensive and usually produce quick
responses. However some organizations are concerned about problems that result from hiring
friends of employees for example, the practice of hiring friends and relatives favoritisms, cliques
etc.

59
Advantages of Internal Recruitment:

1. Provides greater motivation for good performance.


2. Provides greater opportunities for present employees
3. Provides better opportunity to assess abilities
4. Improves morale and organizational loyalty
5. Enables employees to perform the new job with little lost time

Disadvantages of Internal Recruitment:

1. Creates a narrowing thinking and stale ideas


2. Creates pressures to compete
3. Creates homogeneous workforce
4. Chances to miss good outside talent Requires strong management development programs
5. specially to train for technology.

II. External Recruiting Sources:

A broad variety of methods are available for external recruiting. An organization should are fully
assess the kinds of positions it wants to fill and select the recruiting methods that are likely to
reduce the best results.

There are some employee needs that a firm must fill through external recruitment. Among them
are: filling entry-level jobs, acquiring skills not possessed by current employees, and obtaining
employees with different backgrounds to provide new ideas.

a) High Schools and Vocational Schools


Organizations concerned with recruiting clerical and entry-level operative employees often
depend on high schools and vocational schools.

b) Community Colleges
A number of community colleges are sensitive to the specific employment needs in their local
labor market and graduate highly sought-after students with marketable skills.

c) Colleges and Universities


Colleges and universities represent a major source of recruitment for many organizations.
Potential professional, technical, and management employees are typically found in these
institutions. Different institutes use to publish booklets having information about the graduates
that can be communicated to organization who are in search of applicants.

60
d) Competitors and other Firms
Competitors and other firms in the industry or geographic area may be the most important source
of recruits for positions in which recent experience is highly desired.

e) Unemployed
Individuals who are unemployed, regardless of the reason, often provide a valuable source of
recruitment.

f) Older Individuals
Older workers, including those retired, may also comprise a valuable source of employees.

g) Military Personnel

proven work history, and are flexible, motivated, and drug free.

h) Self-Employed Workers

technical,
professional, administrative, or entrepreneurial expertise.

EXTERNAL RECRUITMENT METHODS

Recruitment methods are the specific means through which potential employees are attracted to
the firm. a.

a) Advertising

A way of communicating the employment needs within the firm to the public through media
such as radio, newspaper, television, industry publications, and the Internet. Sometimes
organizations can perform the recruitment function through blind advertisements in blind
advertisements no identification about the company is provided to applicants. Companies can use
blind advertisements for many reasons e.g.

• Company wants to keep the recruitment in low profile so that lesser number of applicants
should apply in order to discourage the irrelevant people. Due to bad reputation or
image of the organization

61
• Advertisement is made just for the purpose of test marketing fro example just to have
knowledge about the supply of applicants in labor market etc.

b) Employment Agencies

An organization that helps firms recruits employees and, at the same time, aids individuals in
their attempt to locate jobs. There are two types of the employment agencies i.e.

• Public Employment Agencies.


• Private Employment Agencies

Both of these sources provide coordination between the organizations and applicants who are
searching for jobs, for this service they use to charge a fee .Employment agencies are able to
tailor their services to the specific needs of the clients For example some agencies Specialize in a
particular employment areas, such as engineering, human resource or Computer programming,
etc.

Recruiters

The most common use of recruiters is with technical and vocational schools, community
colleges, colleges, and universities.

Internships

A special form of recruiting that involves placing a student in a temporary job. There is no
obligation on the part of the company to permanently hire the student and no obligation on the
part of the student to accept a permanent position with the firm. Hiring college students to work
as student interns is typically viewed as training activity rather than as a recruiting activity.
However, organizations that sponsor internship programs have found that such programs
represent an excellent means of recruiting outstanding employees.

Executive Search Firms

Executive search firms sometimes called HEAD HUNTERS are specialized form of private
employment agencies that place top level executives and experienced professionals. These are
the organizations that seek the most-qualified executive available for a specific position and are
generally retained by the company needing a specific type of individual.
62
Professional Associations

Associations in many business professions such as finance, marketing, information technology,


and human resources provide recruitment and placement services for their members. Professional
associations and trade organizations provide a valuable service in bringing together professional
and professional job openings. Most professional organizations have newsletters, annual
meetings and trade publications that advertise job openings. The annual meetings of these
organizations are good occasion for professionals to learn about available job openings and for
employers to interview potential applicants.

Unsolicited Walk-In Applicants

an organization has the reputation of being a good place to work, it may be able to attract good
Prospective employees without extensive recruitment efforts.

Virtual Job Fairs-Individuals meet recruiters face-to-face in interviews conducted over special
computers that have lenses that transmit head-and-shoulder images of both parties.

Cyber Recruiting-Organizations can also use web sites and internet sources to recruit people
application submission test and interview and other recruitment and selection activities can be
performed online.

e Recruitment and Job Portals


The buzzword and the latest trends in recruitment is the “E-Recruitment”. Also known as
“Online recruitment”, it is the use of technology or the web based tools to assist the recruitment
processes. The tool can be either a job website like naukri.com, the organisation’s corporate web
site or its own intranet. ICICI group are using Internet as a source of recruitment. They advertise
job vacancies through worldwide web. The job seekers send their applications or curriculum
vitae (CV) through an e-mail using the Internet. Alternatively job seekers place their CV’s in
worldwide web, which can be drawn by prospective employees depending upon their
requirements.

The internet penetration in India is increasing and has tremendous potential. According to a
study by NASSCOM – “Jobs is among the top reasons why new users will come on to the
internet, besides e-mail.” There are more than 18 million resume’s floating online across the
world.

The two kinds of e-recruitment that an organisation can use is –

Job portals – i.e. posting the position with the job description and the job specification on the
job portal and also searching for the suitable resumes posted on the site corresponding to the
opening in the organisation.

Creating a complete online recruitment/application section in the companies own website. -

65
Companies have added an application system to its website, where the ‘passive’ job seekers can
submit their resumes into the database of the organisation for consideration in future, as and
when the roles become available.

Resume Scanners: Resume scanner is one major benefit provided by the job portals to the
organisations. It enables the employees to screen and filter the resumes through pre-defined
criteria’s and requirements (skills, qualifications, experience, payroll etc.) of the job.
Job sites provide a 24*7 access to the database of the resumes to the employees facilitating the
just-in-time hiring by the organisations. Also, the jobs can be posted on the site almost
immediately and is also cheaper than advertising in the employment newspapers. Sometimes
companies can get valuable references through the “passers-by” applicants. Online recruitment
helps the organisations to automate the recruitment process, save their time and costs on
recruitments.

Online recruitment techniques


• Giving a detailed job description and job specifications in the job postings to attract
candidates with the right skill sets and qualifications at the first stage.
• E-recruitment should be incorporated into the overall recruitment strategy of the
organisation.
• A well defined and structured applicant tracking system should be integrated and the
system should have a back-end support.
• Along with the back-office support a comprehensive website to receive and process job
applications (through direct or online advertising) should be developed.
Therefore, to conclude, it can be said that e-recruitment is the “Evolving face of recruitment.”

Advantages & Disadvantages Of E-Recruitment


There are many benefits – both to the employers and the job seekers but the e-recruitment is not
free from a few shortcomings. Some of the advantages and the disadvantages of e-recruitment
are as follows:

Advantages of E-Recruitment are:


· Lower costs to the organisation. Also, posting jobs online is cheaper than advertising in the
newspapers.
· No intermediaries.
· Reduction in the time for recruitment (over 65 percent of the hiring time).
· Facilitates the recruitment of right type of people with the required skills.
· Improved efficiency of recruitment process.
· Gives a 24*7 access to an online collection of resumes.
· Online recruitment helps the organisations to weed out the unqualified candidates in an

66
automated way.
· Recruitment websites also provide valuable data and information regarding the
compensation offered by the competitors etc. which helps the HR managers to take various HR
decisions like promotions, salary trends in industry etc.

Disadvantages of E-Recruitment
Apart from the various benefits, e-recruitment has its own share of shortcomings and
disadvantages. Some of them are:
• Screening and checking the skill mapping and authenticity of million of resumes is a
problem and time consuming exercise for organisations.
• There is low Internet penetration and no access and lack of awareness of internet in many
locations across India.
• Organisations cannot be dependant solely and totally on the online recruitment methods.
• In India, the employers and the employees still prefer a face-to-face interaction rather
than sending e-mails.

SELECTION:-

70
WHAT IS SELECTION:-

Selection is the process of choosing the most suitable persons out of all the applicants. In
this process the relevant information about applicants is collected through a series of steps so
as to evaluate their suitability for the job to be filled. Selection is the process of matching the
qualifications of the applicants with the job requirements. Selection can also be described as
the process of rejection because generally more candidates are turned away than are hired.
_

Selection is different from recruitment; Recruitment technically precedes selection in the


following ways-:

1. Recruitment involves identifying the sources of manpower and stimulating them to


apply for the job in the organization. ®n the other hand selection is the process of
choosing the best out of those recruited.
2. Recruitment is positive as it aims on increasing the number of applications for wider
choice or-- for increasing the selection ratio. Selection is negative as it rejects the large
number of applicants to identify the few who are suitable for the job.
3. Recruitment involves prospecting or searching whereas selection involves comparison
and choice of candidates. The purpose of selection is to pick up a right person for every
job.

Selection is an important function as no organization can achieve its goals without selecting
the right people. Faulty selection leads to wastage of time

71
and money and spoils the environment of an organization. Scientific selection and placement
of personnel can go a long way in building up a stable work force. It helps to reduce
absenteeism and labor turnover. Proper selection is helpful in increasing the efficiency and
productivity of an enterprise.

SELECTION PROCEDURE AT ICICI Lombard

The selection process consists of series of steps. There is no standard selection procedure
to be used in all organizations for all type of jobs. But still the step s involved in employee
selection can be described as under

1.Preliminary interview: First of all, initial screening is done to weed out totally
undesirable/unqualified candidates at the outset. Preliminary interview is essentially a sorting
process in' which prospective candidates are given the essential information about the nature of
the job and the organization. Preliminary interview saves time and efforts of both the company
and the candidate. It avoids unnecessary waiting for the rejected candidate and waste of money
on further processing of an unsuitable candidate. Preliminary interview helps to determine
whether it is a worthwhile for a candidate to fill up application form. Preliminary interview is
brief and generally carried out by a junior executive across the counter or at the reception
office.

1. Application bank : Application form is a traditional and widely used device for
collecting information firms candidates. Small firms design no application form and
ask the candidates to write details about their age, marital status, education, work
experience, etc. on a plain sheet of paper. But big companies use different types of
application forms for different jobs. The application forn1 should provide all the
information relevant to selection. Application form helps to serve several objectives

a. Scrutiny of forms helps to weed out candidates who are lacking in education,
experience or some other eligibility traits
b. It helps in formulating questions to be asked in the interview.
c. Data contained in application forms can be stored for further reference.

72
2. Selection test:Psychological tests are being increasingly used in employee selection.
A test is a sample of some aspect of an individual's attitudes, behavior and
performance. It also provides a systematic basis for comparing the behavior,
performance and attitudes of two or more persons. Tests help to reduce bias in
selection by serving as a supplementary screening device. Tests are helpful in better
matching of candidate and the job. Tests are useful when the number of applicants is
large.
3. Employment interview: An interview is a conversation between two persons. In
selection it involves a personal, observational and face-to-face appraisal of candidates
for employment. Interview is an essential element of selection and no selection
procedure is complete without one or more personal interviews. A selection interview
serves following purposes:
a. Obtaining information about the background, education, training, work history
and interests of the candidate.
b. Giving information to candidates about the company, the specific job and
personnel policies.
c. Establishing a friendly relationship between the employer and the candidate so
as to motivate the successful applicant to work for the organization.

In practice, however, interview becomes a one-sided affair serving only the first
purpose.

4. Medical examination.- Applicants who have crossed the above stages are sent
for a physical examination either to the company's physician or to a medical officer
approved for the purpose. However, this procedure is normally not followed in practice
in many organizations in India.

73
5. Reference checks : The applicant is asked to mention in his application form the
names and addresses of two or three persons who know him well. These may be his
previous employers, head of education institutions or public figures. The organization
contacts 'them by mail or telephone. They are requested their frank opinion about the
candidate without incurring any liability. They- ,Are assured that all information
supplied will be kept confidential. The opinion of referees can be useful in judging the
future behavior and performance of a candidate. But it is not advisable to rely
exclusively on the referees because they are generally biased in favor of the candidate.
6. Final approval:In most of the organizations, selection process is carried out by the
human resource department. The decisions of this department are recommendatory.
The candidates short-listed by the department are finally approved by the executives of
the concerned departments/units. Employment is offered in the form of appointment
letter mentioning the post, rank. Salary grade, and the date by which the candidate
should join and other terms and conditions in brief. In some organizations both the
candidate and the representative of the organization sign a contract of service on judicial
paper. Appointment is generally made on a probation period of one or two years. After
satisfactory performance during this period the candidate is finally confirmed in the job
on permanent basis or regularized.

The Company believes in offering opportunities for growth and career progression to its
employees; thus each time a requirement arises, internal recruitment is a preferred mode. HR
places an advertisement on the intranet. The advertisement contains the following details:
a. Job Profile
b. Educational qualifications, Skills, Experience
c. Last date of receiving Applications
d. Contact person in HR
All Applications are then screened for the eligibility against pre-determined criteria for the
vacancy. HR prepares a list of eligible applicants and seeks approval from the respective
Departmental Head. If approval is given, HR sends a notification to the eligible candidates via
telephone/email.

74
If no suitable applicants apply within one week from the date of posting the advertisement,
external recruitment is initiated.

Eligible candidates go through 4 rounds of interviews as follows: -

Step 1-done by HR executive and the Personnel Manager

Step 2- Interview Step 1- SCREENING with General Manager HR

Step 3- Interview with the Head of the concerned department.

Step 4- Interview with Vice President (Operations)


Step 5- Interview with the Directors

Selection Process:-

Initial Screening:
HR will conduct an initial screening based on the details provided in

the CV, and also the pre determined criteria. HR will then establish

a candidate’s list using set priorities when there is more than one

qualified applicant interested in the same position.

75
