Employee Recruitment & Selection

The goal of employee recruitment is to efficiently attract a large pool of qualified, good-fit applicants. Some recruitment modes and outlets are more efficient than others. You want highly qualified, good-fit pre-candidates to self-select into the application process. At the same time, you want less qualified, poor-fit pre-candidates to self-select out of the application process.

The goal of employee selection is to legally and efficiently identify the single best candidate for a particular job. Only once the recruiting process has been optimized, can the selecting and hiring processes be optimized as well.

During the recruiting process, pre-candidates should be able to answer the question: “Is this job – and is this organization – the right one for me?” During the selecting process, management should be able to answer the question: “Which candidate is the absolute single best one for this position and our organization?”
