The Role of Recruitment in Human Resources

An HR officer’s primary responsibilities include the recruitment, development and retention of employees. As human capital, employees are the foundation of every company. Without labor, skills and talent, it is impossible for an enterprise to maintain a successful existence. Accordingly, HR professionals fulfill an important role in acquiring human capital and ensuring that company policies are in alignment with both company values, but also satisfying employees needs in order to motivate a high retention rate.

Skills Learned During Recruitment Courses

Recruitment is centered on identifying, locating and signing the right person for the right position. As a process in itself, recruitment begins with job analysis, a secondary process which entails identifying and specifying the content of a job role. Job analysis is more than a set of activities, it also involves stipulating the skills and personal characteristics required to perform the job in question. It other words, it’s not always about skills: personality and desire can have a significant impact on an employee’s success within a certain role. This personal, or mental capacity, is referred to as a job psychograph.

The second stage of recruitment is the process of reaching out to potential candidates. Over the past decades, the ways in which employees are recruited has changed dramatically, especially with the turn of the digital age. Today, HR professionals can look to recruitment tools ranging from newspaper advertisements and online job search engines to professional head hunters and word of mouth.

Next comes a critical stage of the recruitment process: interviewing. With an interview, HR professionals have the opportunity to gain insight on what a candidate’s CV does not include. As personality, attitude, social skills and professional presence have as much to do with job performance as hard skills, an interview can make it or break it for a potential candidate – and, much of that can ride on the skills of the interviewer. Good interviewing skills have the potential to bring out the best in a candidate that would otherwise be missed.

Arguably the most important of the recruitment process, it is important to take a methodological approach to the selection of the right candidate. In these circumstances, one must consider candidates from a well-rounded perspective and account for potential as well as current skill sets and personal qualities. That is, while a candidate may have excellent skills on one area and may lack in another, it is possible to fill in the gaps with learning and development.

The skills to do all of this as effectively can be learned with the help of recruitment courses.

Recruitment Courses for HR Professionals

Considering the significant costs of high employee turnover on an organisation, recruitment courses on methodology and strategy are well worth the investment. Training and courses in this area are available in a variety of shapes and forms, including in-house and open courses. Common topics might include:

  • Job Analysis
  • Talent planning and resourcing
  • Selection
  • Interviewing Skills
  • Talent Management

Recruitment does not end with the selection process, but continues into the realm of learning and development and HR management. This refers to the process of developing employees, maintaining employee satisfaction, developing organsational policies that are in line with a positive company culture and ensuring that the organisation has a high employee retention rate.

Participating in HR recruitment courses in the UK or Ireland allows individuals who are responsible for hiring to gain practical guidance about today’s challenging workplace and how it affects the recruitment process. HR recruitment courses are also important in guaranteeing that an organisation is in compliance with the changing employment and recruitment laws.
