When HR planning indicates the need for additional labor, organizations have a number of choices to make. This may be the first step in a full-scale recruitment and selection process, but something hiring additional employees is not the best method to obtain additional labor. It may be appropriate for a organization to consider alternatives to recruiting, such as outsourcing or contingent labor, instead of hiring regular employees. If this a temporary fluctuation in work volume, the simplest solution may be part-time labor or overtime by existing employees. If this a temporary fluctuation in work volume, the simplest solution may be part-time labor or overtime by existing employees. The costs of recruitment and selection can be staggering; hiring new employees should occur only after careful consideration and only when the organization anticipates a long-term need for additional labor. Estimates on the cost to replace supervisory, technical and management employees run from 50 percent to several hundred percent of employee salaries. Careful HR planning must consider the overall growth prospects of the organization and accurate forecasting of future labor needs. Recruitment planning begins only when other alternatives have been considered and eliminated.

RECRUITMENT: The process of attracting individuals on a timely basis, in sufficient numbers and with appropriate qualifications, to apply for jobs with an organization.


Promotion From Within

Your organization’s promotion policy will have a significant effect on the recruitment process. If the open position is above entry level, it may be appropriate to promote someone already working for the organization. Many organizations use promotion from within as a motivation tool and a reward for good work or longevity with the organization. When employees see their co-workers being prometed, they become more aware of their own career opportunities. Promotion may be especially important in a stagnant economy where people have little chance of improving their lot by changing organizations. They only opportunity for career growth and increased income is to move up within their current organization. The problem with promotion from within is that the promoted person leaves a staffing gap in his or her former position, so there is still a position to be filled. However, that gap is likely to be at lower, less-skilled position, and therefore it may be an easier position to fill.

The advantage of promotion from within is that your promoted employees is already comfortable with the corporate culture, knows organization policies and will likely get up to speed much faster than a person new to organization. The disadvantage of promotion from within is that the organization loses out on the chance for new ideas and the creativity that can come from a new person entering the organization for the first time. Clearly, there are pros and cons to both promotion from within and outside hiring. It’s not that one way is right and the other is wrong – is simply depends on organizational policy, the type of job being filled and its level within the organization. Higher-level jobs are more likely to be filled by promotion than are lower-level jobs.


Labor Market Conditions

The strength of the economy and labor market conditions will significantly affect your organization’s ability to attract and retain top-level employees. When the economy is strong, with little unemployment, your organization may have to compete with other employers for a limited number of skilled employees. This may require increased compensation or benefits incentives to attract quality applicants. The reverse may be true in a soft economy, with high levels of unemployment. The problem then is not a shortage of qualified applicants, instead, the problem is managing the huge number of applications that must be pared down to find a few good hires. Local labor market conditions strongly affect no managerial and supervisory positions, and depending on your industry, global considerations may affect your labor market for professional and technical applicants.


Job Posting

The most common method used to find qualified applicants from inside the organization is job posting.

JOB POSTING: The procedure to inform employees that job openings exist.
