Companies around the world are recruiting every day and going by the way the world is advancing technologically, the need for recruits won’t end, but why make need more recruits when you could mobilize and upgrade the knowledge of the already existing employees? I guess what I’m asking is why do companies need more recruits?

Companies Do Need More Recruits For The Following Reasons;

1. For Increased Man Power

There are moments in a company’s growth where the workload becomes unbearable for the employees, companies at this point will need increased manpower to get the job done without burning out the workers.

2. Need For Fresh And Sophisticated Minds

It’s always wise to stay updated as an individual so you don’t work with the archaic idea of how work is done. Most companies seek out fresh minds when they realize their company is lacking in some particular sphere.

I know it’s possible to train the old workers instead of hiring new recruits but most companies love to avoid the stress of having to go all out to hire tutors, pay for their service, and set up classes which at the end of the day, not all workers may even attend.

As A Company Seeking Out The Five Recruitment Processes, They’re Listed Below;

1. Recruitment Planning

This is the process of identifying the vacancies or positions that need to be filled, the spice that is missing, the rut-out idea that needs to be replaced, and how many recruits will be needed.

As an employer, you should know when to make fresh recruitment and when a particular position needs filling or when a particular department needs an upgrade and try to match up with the steaming competition in the market.

In the recruitment planning, do not fail to write a complete job specification for the position to be filled, highlight major and minor responsibilities, required skills, experience and qualifications, grade and salary level, start date, and whether the position is temporary or permanent, and special conditions (if any), attached to the position.

2. Strategy Development

Strategy Development refers to the process of progression of an idea. Let’s say you know how many hands you’ll need and which positions you need to fill, the next step I’ll be to scout means of achieving these plans.

In strategy development is when you’ll need to consider the how’s of employment: here you consider if you should train the required applicants or recruit the ones who are already knowledgeable. You’ll equally need to decide on the type of recruitment method to be used, the geographic area to be considered for sourcing candidates, the recruitment source to be used, and the sequence of activities to be followed in the recruitment process.

3. Search

This involves scouting for the right candidates, the search process now includes different ways of reaching out to qualified and potential applicants.

The search process could take an external or internal turn, you may decide to train your older employees to take up the available opportunities or recruit new candidates with the knowledge you desire to fill up the positions.

4. Screening

This process successes the search process and precedes the selection process. Here is where you have attracted a large number of candidates vying for the position to determine is who most competent for the job.

The screening process should be based on the position applicants are applying for, thus, applications are reviewed based on the qualifications, knowledge, skills, abilities, interests, and experience listed in the job specification. Those who do not meet the requirements are eliminated directly from the selection process.

5. Selection

Here is where the interviewees are selected based on who is most competent for the job described. Certain criteria are also put into consideration, like salary range, distance from work benefits etcetera. A microcosm of applicants is selected from the large crowd that came for the job offer and that appeared for the interview based on criteria you know are beneficial to the company and to them. This is symbiosis.
