Dube Student no: ST04003628 Campus: Colchester Avenue Course: MBA (full-time) Tutor: Richard Adlam Academic year: September 2004-05 Submitted: 02-08-2006 Provisional title "Critically evaluate recruitment and selection process in employment agencies in UK with reference to Life Search and Selection" Introduction Recruitment agencies are a part of the ever changing world. As the world moves closer to become one, recruitment agencies play a pivotal role in helping in mass transmission of human resources from one part of the world to another. There was a time when people were happy to work in their own community. But nowadays things have changed dramatically. A lot of people travel to different parts of the world to get experience by working in alien environments.

Key reasons for using executive research and selection consultants include the need for confidentiality, a lack of in house recruitment knowledge and skills at this level, and simply a lack of senior management time to devote to the activity. Importance of ensuring the section of the right people to join the workforce has become increasingly apparent as they emphasis on people as a prime source of competitive advantage has grown. Firstly, democratic trends and changes in the labour market have lead to a more diverse workforce, which as placed increasing pressure on the notion of fairness and selection. Secondly, the desire of multi-skilled, flexible workforce and an increased emphasis on team working has meant that selection decisions are concerned more with behaviour and attitudes than with matching individuals to immediate job requirements. ...read more.
