The article describes the methods of human resources selection in Slovak companies. The aim of the article is to describe the change in the approach in management of human resources selection. The selection of the employees is an integral part of human resource management. The severity of choice is the fact that every employee has certain personal assumptions, qualifications, performance and personal capacity, which are individually specific and reflect the level and scope of his employment eligibility. At the same time, any activity, profession and position is clearly defined set of requirements and demands with respect to various aspects of employee profiles. It is therefore important to select not only the right employee but also to use the most appropriate method of selection. On the base of analysing and comparing of the surveys realized in the year 2012 and in the year 2016, the difference in human resources selection will be identified. The detected gaps will be analysed, the possible root causes that could make them will be generated, and the next possible ways of development of human resources selection in Slovak companies will be recommended.
