Recruitment and selection - personnel planning, HR Management

Recruitment and Selection:

Once a proper assessment of manpower requirements is  made, the process of recruitment would begin. The steps are: Obtaining sanction to filling up the vacancies from  the personnel department so that the process of recruitment and selection gets the right attention and speed. 

Advertisements in appropriate newspapers and/or professional journals of  the types and number of posts to be filled up, with other details like conditions of employment, opportunities professional advancement, career prospects, salary structure and fringe benefits and other related aspects. All these or any group of job information, as desired by the parent organisation have to be determined. Even in small organisations, the person in charge of the library should initiate appropriate action at the right time. 

The routine operations involved  in recruitment and  selection of persons are usually conducted by the personnel departments of the parent organisation. Screening applications to shortlist candidates for interview (if necessary, holding a written test for shortlisting), conducting personal  interviews or other methods to ensure the suitability of persons for different positions, are among the steps for recruitment and selection. 

In doing this work, the initiative has to  be taken by the head of the library/information centre, even though the process of recruitment and selection are handled by the personnel department of the parent organisation. The interests of the library have to be well guarded.
