Recruitment

Scott Hurrell, Dora Scholarios

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Recruitment is often neglected in the HRM literature. Most accounts combine the discussion of recruitment with selection, with greater emphasis on selection. However, the more effective organisations are at identifying and attracting a high quality pool of job applicants, the less important the selection stage of hiring becomes. According to some, recruitment is “the most critical human resource function for organizational survival or success” (Taylor & Collins, 2000, p.304 ).
