Part of the Macmillan Business Masters book series


In this chapter we concentrate on the process of matching the characteristics of individuals to the demands of jobs. This is the purpose of recruitment and selection. As in other areas of personnel management you will find that unfortunately there are no easy prescriptions for success. Much depends on the knowledge and skills of those involved, whether line managers or personnel specialists. In addition, as you should recall from earlier in the book, any personnel technique needs to be relevant to and effective within the context of a particular organisation. Towards the end of the chapter you will be encouraged to examine how you might evaluate the effectiveness of recruitment and selection in an organisation.
