Businesses are established to cater for the needs of numerous people. Fulfilling the needs requires a coordinated efforts from staff with different skills and knowledge. When wrong people are hired, experts say the intended benefits customers would derive from products or services would be reduced and at the same having drastic effects on firms’ turnover.
Recruitment of wrong staff by some companies has been hinged on sentiment most human resources managers and individual business owners had while recruiting applicants for certain positions. Instead of adopting strategic recruitment method, which has the tendency of producing strategic staff who would act tactically on the management’s strategic policies and plans, sentiment is always prioritized over strategy. Marc Benioff, Chief Executive Officer, Salesforce says looking for the people who want to change the world is the secret to successful hiring. This set of people could only be employed when strategic human resources techniques are strictly followed in recruiting entry, middle and top levels of staff.
