Selection process is harder than it looks June 7, 2007

We live in a world where the community is more conscious about what businesses do. People are now aware of the procedures used by business organisations. In such a cognisant world, firms need to be careful about their recruitment and selection procedures. A simple discrimination can cost thousands of dollars for a firm. Discrimination can occur in many different ways which includes the job advertisement as well. For instance, if your firm is a pharmaceutical manufacturer and you have advertised for a sales representative where you specified that males are prefered and women need not apply. This results a gender discrimination. There are many women in the world with sales related professions who are equally competent to male sales representatives.

Therefore, when selecting employees for your organisation please be careful about the procedures you use to select. As a matter of fact, selection process itself is a form of discriminating where you select one individual over another based on the preferences you or your firm might have.
