Compare and contrast TWO modern recruitment/selection methods (e.g. psychometric tests) with more traditional systems (e.g. individual interviews). To what extent do the innovative techniques overcome the problems inherent in traditional methods of recruiting and selecting staff?
To put this title into context, the importance of recruitment and selection must be outlined. It is clear, from the literature and from my own personal experiences, that recruitment and selection are a crucial element of Human Resource Management (HRM). Regardless of size, it is essential to employ an effective recruitment and selection procedure. According to Marchington and Wilkinson (2002: p277), recruitment and selection have become a highly sophisticated practice of HR; consultants and organisational psychologists have been employed to ensure companies have made valid and reliable selection decisions (Marchington and Wilkinson, 2002).
This essay will compare and contrast psychometric testing and online recruitment against traditional methods. Furthermore, it will assess how the modern recruitment and selection methods have overcome the problems inherent in traditional methods of recruiting and selecting staff.
Selection is the process of discriminating between the pool of candidates which have been recruited. This can be in the form of references, interviews, tests and assessment
