Recruitment And Selection; Recruitment is the process of captivating screening and selecting potential and qualified candidates based on objective criteria for a particular job. The goal of this process is to attract qualified applicants and to opt themselves out. Before starting the process of recruitment the companies must execute proper staffing plans and should grade the number of employees they are they are going to need. Forecasting of the employees should depend upon the annual budget of the organization and the short-term and long-term goals of the organization.

Part 2. Reply to the following classmate in a minimum of 100 words:
“In my line of work, Human Resources has been most beneficial to the company for multiple reasons. The first reason that I would like to make note of is being available for legal representation. With a company of our size, there are many circumstances in which an employee faces disciplinary action for performance and attendance issues. HR has been extremely helpful in making sure that the corrective action is warranted and within legal limits.
More important than legal representation is being a one-stop-shop for employee benefits. The majority of employees have the most problems with sorting through the countless benefits the company has to offer. As an example, navigating through our healthcare benefits and continuous changes to our plan can be a very daunting task for most people. HR has always been proactive to the changes and making sure everyone understands how it will affect them.
All employees want to know what they are going to get from the company and not miss out on any opportunities that may be available to them. Keeping the employees updated and informed of company benefits is the most important function of Human Resources.” Andrew J.
