Develop Recruitment, Selection and Induction Policies and Procedures
Recruitment, selection, and induction are crucial functions of Strategic Human Resource Management (SHRM), because these functions help to develop competitive advantage and achieve organisational objectives. One of the biggest challenges that organisations face today is how to attract and retain the best human resources. The human resources function is an element of the strategic planning function of the organisation in view of the importance and value of good staff to the success of any operational activity. The overall human resource management activities include demand forecasting, supply forecasting, job analysis, preparing job description, developing selection criteria, strategic recruitment, strategic selection, and training and development. The development of recruitment, selection and induction policies and procedures are very important. These policies and procedures will need to be documented and drawn up in the form of guidelines and protocols, which can be referred to by relevant staff for recruitment, selection and induction activities.
