An efficient recruitment process is an organisation-specific sourcing model that aims to find the right fit for the right job at the right time. It is a step-by-step approach to bringing in talented people who can help the company grow. An all-inclusive recruitment process has key phases, but it may vary from organisation to organisation depending on the business organisational structure, size of the organisation, nature of operations, existing recruitment workflow and selection process.

Factors that influence recruitment:

Size of the organisation

Salary structure

Work culture and working conditions within the organisation

The growth rate of the organisation

The current state of employable skills in the employment economy

The recruitment process:

This consists of interrelated steps which are as follows:

Identifying hiring needs

Preparing the job description

Talent search

Screening and shortlisting


Evaluation and offer of employment

Introduction and induction of the new employee

The recruitment team:

A strong recruitment team ensures a good and professional process. One wrong decision can affect the productivity of the entire workforce. The best teams are able to:
Clearly identify job vacancy and define qualities of an ideal candidate
Write clear job descriptions that enable candidates to understand the job and assess whether they’re the right fit
Create outlines detailing the qualities needed in an ideal candidate, which will also help during the selection process

Why do you need a strong recruitment process?

A full proof recruitment process is targeted at attracting qualified suitable candidates and encouraging maximum possible job seekers to apply. A good recruitment process makes it possible to build a pool of talented players in a tight job market and minimizes the time involved in finding the candidates and filling roles for the present and future requirements of the organisation.

A well-planned and thought-out recruitment process helps the hiring team filter the right candidates faster. A recruitment process not only reflects the organisation’s professionalism but also helps attract the kind of candidates needed while saving time and money in the identifying, attracting, engaging, recruiting and retaining talent.
