What is Recruitment

Recruitment refers to the overall process of attracting, selecting and appointing suitable candidates for jobs within an organization.

For many businesses this can be a daunting task and can have unfortunate results if not handled with care. Often, business owners are faced with assigning the art of recruitment to the hiring manager or even themselves, adding to their already full plates. This usually results in one of two things occurring; one, important business tasks fall by the wayside or two, hiring decisions are rushed. A rushed hiring decision can be a staggering expense; easily to the tune of one to three times the annual salary of the open position.

There are also costs that are not so obvious. These hidden costs include:

Loss of productivity

A new hire can take months before they are truly productive. Considering a rushed new hire may not even make it 6 months, that hit to productivity is even greater.

Low staff morale

When hiring mistakes are made, other staff members may lose faith that a replacement will ever be found. This lack of faith can easily lead to lower morale, frustration and eventual departure of even your best employees.

Thinly stretched staff

Other employees have to pick up additional responsibilities when there is an opening. Many employees can sustain this for a short period of time, but if there is a delay in hiring or there is repeated turnover, this too will lead to frustration of current employees.
