Whether considering current employees for a transfer or promotion or outside candidates for a first-time position with the firm, information about the applicants must be collected and evaluated. Selection begins when a pool of applicants has submitted their resumes or completed application forms as a result of the recruiting process. Successful candidates must fit with the strategic direction of the organization. When a poor selection decision is made and the individual selected for the job isnt capable of acceptable performance in the job, strategic objectives will not be met. Also, when a successful employee must be terminated, the recruitment and selection process must begin all over again, and the new worker must be properly trained. Important because: o Quality of worker determines the organizations performance o Time consuming and costly if selecting the wrong person o Significant legal implications Guidelines for avoiding legal problems: o Selection criteria based on the job o Adequate assessment of applicant ability o Careful scrutiny of applicant-provided information o Written authority for reference checking o Save all records and information o Reject applicants who make false statements Selection ratio is the ratio of the number of applicant hired to the total number of applicants The Selection Process Most firms use a sequential selection system involving a series of successive steps a multiple-hurdle strategy.
