The recruitment and selection of the best employees is central to organisational success. Recruitment and selection policies and practices are core processes within all organisations, across all industries and irrespective of country. Success and failure of organisations can often be attributed to strengths and weaknesses with the recruitment and selection process.
However, these activities need to be carried out within a legislative framework that increasingly influences our practice. This degree will provide you with an understanding of the activities involved in the more complex and difficult areas of recruitment and selection, from the viewpoint of a human resource practitioner and/or business manager.
