A PROJECT STUDY
‘RECRUITMENT AND SELECTION
IN IMS Learning Resources Pvt. Ltd’
OBJECTIVE OF PROJECT
In basic idea behind selecting the topic of “Employee Hiring” is to study how
employees are hired. Today organizations are coming up with the new techniques of
hiring people. Hence to study how the actual process is carried in the organization.
This project aims the finding out and analyzing the hiring process in the organization.
The method of approach adopted for the same, would be as follows:
1. To wok out the various steps and procedures involved.
2. To contacts various companies and collect information
3. To collect the information secondary like magazines, newspapers, internets
Importance and scope

1. Organization did not disclose full information.
2. Data collected in this field are not sufficient.
People form an integral part of the organization. The efficiency and quality of its
people determines the fate of the organization. Hence choice of right people and
placing them at right place becomes essential. Hiring comes at this point of time in
the picture. Hiring is a strategic function for HR department. Recruitment and
selection form the process of hiring the employees. Recruitment is the systematic
process of generating a pool of qualified applicant for organization job. The
process includes the step like HR planning attracting applicant and screening them.
This step is affected by various factors, which can be internal as well as
external. The organization makes use of various methods and sources for this
Selection is carried from the screen applicant during the recruitment process. There is
also some specific process is involved. By the way of conducting preliminary
interview and conducting the various test , if required reference check and
further final interview is conducted. During the process there are certain
difficulties and barriers that are to be overcomes.
Different organization adopts different approaches and techniques for their
employees. To know the practical application of the employees hiring process,
the analysis of IMS Learning Resources Pvt. Ltd. was undertaken.
People are integral part of any organization today. No organization can run
without its human resources. In today’s highly complex and competitive situation,
choice of right person at the right place has far reaching implications for an
organization’s functioning. Employee well selected and well placed would not
only contribute to the efficient running of the organization but offer significant
potential for future replacement. This hiring is an important function. The process
of hiring begins with human resource planning (HRP) which helps to determine
the number and type of people on organization needs. Job analysis and job design
enables to specify the task and duties of hobs and qualification expected from
prospective job HRP, job analysis, hob design helps to identify the kind of people
required in an organization and hence hiring. It should be noted that hiring is an
ongoing process and not confined to formative stages of an organization.
Employees leave the organization in search of greener pastures, some retire and
some die in the saddle. More importantly an enterprises grows, diversifies, take
over the other units all necessitating hiring of new men and women. In fact the
hiring function stops only when the organization ceases to exist.
Hiring involves two board activities:-
The word ‘recruitment’ has many meaning and plays an important role. Employees
leave the organization in search of greener pastures- some retire some die in saddle.
The most important thing is that enterprise grows, diversifies, and takes over other
units-all necessitating hiring of new men and women. In fact recruitment functions
stop only when the organization ceases to exist. To understand recruitment in simple
terms it is understood as process of searching for obtaining applications of job from
among from whom the right people can be selected. To define recruitment we can
define it formally as it is a process of finding and attracting capable applicants for
employment. The process begins when new recruit are sought and ends when their
application are submitted. The result is a pool of applicants from which new
employees are selected. Theoretically, recruitment process is said to end with receipt
of application in practice the activity extends to the screening applicants as to
eliminate those who are not qualified for job.
1.2 PURPOSE AND IMPORTANCE
The general purpose of recruitment is to provide a pool of potentially qualified job
Specifically, the purposes are to:
1. Determine the present and future requirement of the organization in conjunction
with its personnel planning and job analysis activities;
2. Increase the job pool of job candidates at minimum cost;
3. Help increase the success rate of the selection process by reducing the number
visibly under qualified or job application;
4. Help reduce the probability that job applicants, once recruited selected, will leave
the organization only after a short period of time;
5. Meet the organizations legal and social obligation regarding the composition of its
6. Being identifying and preparing potential job applicants who will be appropriate
7. Increase organization individual effectiveness in the short term and long term;
8. Evaluate the effectiveness of various recruiting technique and sources for all types
of job applicants.
1.3 FACTORS AFFECTING RECRUITMENT
There are a number of factors that affect recruitment. These are broadly classified into
1. Internal factors
2. External factors
The internal factors also called as “endogenous factors” are the factors within the
organization that affect recruiting personnel in the organization.
Some of these are:-
Size of the organization
The size of the organization affects the recruitment process. Larger organization
finds recruitment less problematic than organization with smaller in size.
The recruitment policy of the organization i.e. recruiting from internal sources and
external sources also affect the recruitment process. Generally, recruitment through
internal sources is preferred, because own employees know the organization and they
can well fit in to the organization culture.
Image of the organization
Image of the organization is another factor having its influence on the recruitment
process of the organization. Good image of the organization earned by the number of
overt and covert action by management helps attract potential and complete
candidates. Managerial actions like good public relations, rendering public service
like building roads, public parks, hospitals and schools help earn image or goodwill
for organization. That is why chip companies attract the larger numbers of
Image of the job
Better remuneration and working conditions are considered the characteristics of
good image of a job. Besides, promotion and carrier development policies of
organization also attract potential candidates.
Like internal factors, there are some factors external to organization, which have
their influence on recruitment process. Some of these are given below:-
As demographics factors are intimately related to human beings, i.e. employees,
these have profound influence on recruitment process. Demographic factors include
age, sex, Literacy, economics status etc
Labor market condition I.e. supply and demand of labor is of particular importance in
affecting recruitment process. E.g. if the demand for specific skill is high relative to
its supply is more than for particular skill, recruitment will be relatively easier.
The rate of unemployment is yet another external factor its influence on the
recruitment process. When the employment rate in an area is high, the recruitment
process tends to simpler. The reason is not difficult to seek. The number of
application is expectedly very high which makes easier to attract the best-qualified
applications. The reserve is also true. With low rate of unemployment, recruiting
process tend to become difficult
There are several labor laws and regulations passed by the central and state
governments that govern different type of employment. These cover working
condition, compensation, retirement benefits, safety and health of employee in
The child Labour Act,1986; for example prohibits employment of children in certain
Similarly several other acts such as the Employment Exchange Act,1958; The
Apprentice Act, 1961; the Factory Act,1948; and The Mines Act, 1952 deal with
Another external factor is legal consideration with regard to employment reservation
of jobs for schedule tribes, and other backward class (OBC) is the popular examples
of such legal consideration. The supreme court of India has given its verdict in favor
of 50 per cent of jobs and seats. This is so in case admission in the educational
1.4 INTERNAL SOURCES
Promotions and transfer from among the present employees can be good sources
of recruitment. Promotion implies upgrading of an employee to a higher position
carrying higher status, pay and responsibilities. Promotion from among the
present employees is advantageous because the employees promoted are well
acquainted with the organization culture, they get motivated and it is cheaper also.
Promotion from among the person employees also reduces the requirement of job
training. However, the disadvantage lies in limiting the choice of the few people
and denying hiring of outsiders who may be better qualified and skilled.
Furthermore, promotion from among present employees also results in
inbreeding, which creates frustration among those not promoted. Transfer refers
to shifting an employee from one job to another without any change in the
position/post, status and responsibilities. The need for transfer is felt to provide
employees a broader and carried base, which is considered necessary for
promotion. Job rotation involves transfer of employees from one job to another
job on the lateral basis.
Former employees are another source of applicant for vacancies to be filled up in
the organization. Retired or retrenched employees may be interested to e come
back the company to work on the part time basis. Similarly, some former
employees who had left the organization for any reason, any come back to work.
This source has the advantages of hiring people whose performance is already
known to the organization.
This is yet another internal source of recruitment. The existing employees refer to
the family members, friends and relatives to the company potential candidates for
the vacancies to be filled up in the organization. This source serves as the most
effective methods of recruiting people in the organizations because refer to those
potential candidates who meet the company requirement known to them from
their own experience. The referred individuals are expected to be similar in type
in the of race and sex, for example, to those who are already working in the
This is considered as internal source in the sense that applications from the
potential candidates are already lying with organization. Sometimes the
organization contacts though mail or messengers these applicants to fill up the
vacancies particularly for unskilled or semiskilled jobs.
EVALUATION OF INTERNAL SOURCES:
Let us, evaluate the internal source of recruitment. Obviously, it can be done in
terms of its advantage and disadvantage the same are spelled out as follows:
The advantages of the internal source of recruitment include the following:
Familiarity with own employees:
The organization has more knowledge and familiarity with the strengths and
weaknesses of its own employees than of strange on unknown outsiders.
Better use of the talent:
The policy of internal recruitment also provides an opportunity to the organization
to make a better use of talents internally available and to develop them further and
In case of internal recruitment, the organization does not need to spend much
money, time and effort to locate and attract the potential candidates. Thus,
internal recruitment proves to be economical, or say, inexpensive.
This method makes employees sure that they would be preferred over the
outsiders as and when they filled up in the organization vacancies.
The promotion through internal recruitment serves as a source of motivation for
the employees to improve their carrier and income. The employees feel that
organization feel that organization is a place where they can build up their life-
long career. Besides, internal recruitment also serves as a means of attracting and
retaining employees in the organization.
The main drawback associated with the internal recruitment is as follows:
Internal recruitment limits its choice to the talents available within the
organization. Thus, it denies the tapping of talents available in the vast labor
market outside the organization. Moreover, internal recruitment serves as a means
for “inbreeding”, which is never healthy for the future organizations.
In this system, the internal candidates are protected from competition by not
giving opportunity to otherwise competent candidates from outside the
organization. This in turn, develops a tendency among the employees to take the
promotion without showing extra performance.
Stagnation of skills:
With the feeling that internal candidates will surely get promoted, their skill in the
long run may become stagnant or obsolete. If so, productivity and sufficiency of
the organization, in turn, decreases.
Conflicts and controversies surface among the internal candidates, whether or not
they deserve promotion.
1.5 EXTERNAL SOURCES
External sources of recruitment lie outside the organization. These outnumber
internal sources. The main ones are listed as follows:
The national commission labor (1969) observed in its report that in the pre-
independence era, the main source of labor war rural areas surrounding the
industries. Immediately after independence, national employment services were
established to bring employer and job seeker together. In response to it, the
compulsory notification of vacancies act of 1959 (Commonly called employment
exchange act) was instituted which become operative in 1960.the main functions
of these employment exchanges with the branches in most cities are registration
of job seeker and tier placement in the notified vacancies. It is obligatory for
employer to inform about the outcome of selection within 15 days to the
employment exchange. Employment exchange is particularly useful in recruiting
blue-collar, white- collar and technical workers.
In addition to the government agencies, there are number of private agencies that
register candidates for employment and furnish a list of suitable candidates from
the data bank as and when sought by the prospective employer. Generally, these
agencies select personnel for supervisory and the higher levels. The main function
of these agencies is to invite application and short-list the suitable candidates for
the organization. Of course, the representative of the organization takes the final
decision on selection. The employer organizations derive several advantages
through this source. The time saved in this method can be better utilized
elsewhere by the organization. As the organizational identity remains unknown to
the job speakers, it, thus, avoid receiving letters and attempts to influence.
This method of recruitment can be used for jobs like clerical, technical, and
managerial. The higher the position in the organization, the more specialized the
skills or the shorter the supply of that resources in the labour market, the more
widely dispersed the advertisement are likely to be. For instance, the search for a
top executive might include advertisements in a national daily like the Hindu.
Some employers/companies advertise their post by giving them post box number
of the name of some recruiting agency. This is done to particular keep own
identity secret to avoid unnecessary correspondence with the applicants. However
the disadvantage of these blind advertisement, i.e., post box number is that the
potential job seekers are the hesitant without unknowing the image of the
organization, on the one hand, and the bad image/ reputation that the blind
advertisement have received because of the organizations that placed such
advertisements without position lying vacant just to know supply of labor/
workers in the labor market, on the other. While preparing advertisement, a lot of
care has to be taken to make it clear and to the point. It must ensure that some
self-selection among applicant take place and only qualified applicant responds
the advertisement copy should be prepared by using a four-point guide called
AIDA . The letters in the acronym denote that advertisement should attract
Attention, gain Interest, arouse a Desire and result in action.
However, not many organizations mention complete detail about job
positions in there advertisement. What happened is that ambiguously worded
and broad-based advertisements may generate a lot irrelevant application,
which would, by necessity, increasing the cost of processing them.
Very often, recruitment for certain professional and technical positions is made
through professionals association also called ‘Headhunters’. Institute of
Engineers, All India Management Association, etc., provide placement service
to the members. The professional associations prepare either list of jobseekers
or publish or sponsor journal or magazines containing advertisements for
their member. It is particularly useful for attracting highly skilled and
professional personnel. However, in India, this is not a very common
practice and those few provide such kind service have not been able to
generating a large number of application.
This is another source of recruitment. Though campus recruitment is a common
phenomenon particularly in the American organizations, it has made rather
recently. Of late, some organizations such as HLL, HCL, L&T, Citibank,
Cadbury ANZ Grind lays, etc., in India have started visiting educational and
training institute/ campuses for recruitment purposes. Many Institutes have
regular placement cells / offices to serve liaison between the employer and the
students. Tezpur Central University has one Deputy Director (Training and
Placement) for purpose of campus recruitment and placement.
The method of campus recruitment offers certain advantages to the employer
organizations. First, the most of the candidates are available at one place;
second, the interviews are arranged at short notice; third, the teaching is also
met; fourth, it gives them opportunity to sell the organization to a large
students body who would be graduating subsequently. The disadvantages of this
of recruitment are that organizations have to limit their selection to only
“entry’’ positions and they interview the candidates who have similar
education and experience, if at all.
Another source of recruitment is deputation I.e., sending an employees to
another organization for the short duration of two to three years. This method of
recruitment is practice in a pretty manner, in the Government department and
public sector organization does not have to incurred the initial cast of induction
and training. However, the disadvantages of this of deputation is that
deputation period of two/three year is not enough for the deputed employee to
provide employee to prove his/her mettle, on the one hand, and develop
commitment with organization to become part of it, on the other.
Some organizations in India also practice the “word-of-mouth’’ method of
recruitment. In this method , the word is passed around the vacancies or
opening in the organization. Another from of word-of-mouth method of “employee-
pinching’’ i.e., the employee working
In another organization is offered by the rival organization. This method is
economic, in terms of both time and money. Some of the organization maintain a
file applications and sent a bio-data by a job seeker. These serve as a very handy
as when there is vacancy in the organization. The advantage of this method is no cost
involved in recruitment. However, the disadvantages of this method of recruitment
are non- availability of the candidates when needed choice of candidates is
restricted to a too small number.
Raiding or Poaching:
This is another sources of recruitment whereby the rival firm by offering terms
and conditions, try to attract qualified employees to join the. This raiding is a
common feature in the Indian organizations. For instance, service executive of HMT
left to join Titan Watch Company, so also exodus of pilot from Indian Airlines to
join the private air taxi operator. In fact, raiding has become challenge for the human
Besides these, walk - ins, contractors, radio and television, acquisitions and
merger, etc., art some other sources of recruitment used by organization.
EVALUATION OF EXTERNAL SOURCES:
Like the internal source of recruitment, external sources are mixed of advantages and
Being a more open process, it is likely to attract a large number of
applicants/application. The, in turn, widens it option of selection.
Availability of Talented Candidates:-
With the large pool of applicants, it becomes possible for organization to have
talented candidates from the outside. Thus, it introduces new blood in the
Opportunity to Select the Best Candidate;
With the large pool of applicants, selection process becomes competitive. This
increases prospects for selection the best candidates.
Provides healthy competition:
As the external members are supposed to be more trained and efficient. With such a
background, they work with the positive attitude and greater vigor. This helps create
healthy competition and conductive work environment in the organization.
However, the external sources of recruitment suffer from certain disadvantages too,
Expensive and time consuming:
This method of recruitment is both expensive and time consuming. There is no
guarantee that organization will get good and suitable candidates.
Unfamiliarity with the Organization:
As candidates some outside the organization, they are not familiar with tasks, job
nature and the international scenario of the organization.
Discourage the Existing Employee:
Existing employees are not sure to get promotion. This discourages them to do the
hard work. This, in turn, boils down to decreasing productivity of the organization.
1.6 PHILOSOPHIES OF RECRUITMENT
The traditional philosophy of recruiting has been to get as many people to
apply for a job as possible. A large number of jobseekers waiting in
queues would make the final selection difficult, often resulting in wrong
selection. Job dissatisfaction and employee turnover are the consequence of this.
A persuasive agreement can be made that matching the needs of the organization
to the needs of the applicants will enhance the effectiveness of the recruitment
process. The result will be a workforce which is likely to stay with the
organization longer and performs at a higher level of effectiveness. Two
approaches are available to bring about match. They are:
Realistic Job Preview (RJP)
Job Compatibility Questionnaire (JCQ)
Realistic Job Previews:
Realistic job preview provides complete job related information , both
positive and negative, to the applicants. The information provided will help
job seekers to evaluate the compatibility among the jobs and their personal
ends before hiring decisions are made. RJPs can result in self selection
process- job applicant can decide where to attend the interviews and tests
for final selection or withdraw them the initial stage. Research on realistic
recruiting shows a lower rate of employee turnover incase of employee
recruited through RJPs, particularly for more complex jobs and higher level
of job satisfaction and performance, at the initial stage of employment.
RJPs are more beneficial for organization hiring at entry level, when there
are unemployment. Otherwise the approach may increase the cost of
recruiting by increase the average time it takes to fill each job.
Job Compatibility Questionnaire-
The job compatibility questionnaire was developed to determine whether
applicant preferences for work match the characteristics of the job. The
JCQ is designed to collect the information on aspect of a job, which has
bearing on employee performance, absenteeism, and turnover and job
satisfaction. The underlying assumption of the JQC is that greater the
compatibility between an the jobseeker, the greater the profitability of
employee effectiveness and longer the tenure. The JCQ is a 400- item
instrument that measure job factors, which are related to performance,
satisfaction, turnover and absenteeism. Items cover the following job factors:
task requirement, physical environment, customer characteristics, peer
characteristics, leader characteristics, compensation preference, task variety,
job autonomy, physical demands, and work schedule.
1.7 RECRUIMENT PROCESS
As stated earlier, recruitment is the process of location, identifying, and
attracting capable applications for jobs available in an organization.
Accordingly, the recruitment process comprises the following five steps:
• Recruitment planning;
• Strategy Development;
• Evaluation and Control.
Recruitment Planning: -
The first involved in the recruitment process is planning. Hire, planning involves
to draft a comprehensive job specification for the vacant position, outline its
major and minor responsibilities; the skills, experience and qualifications
needed; grade and level of pay; starting date; whether temporary or
permanent; and mention of special condition, if any, attached to the job to
Once it is known how many with what qualification of candidates are
required, the next step involved in this regard is to device a suitable
strategy for recruitment the candidates in the organization. The strategic
considerations to be considered may include issues like whether to prepare
the required candidates themselves or hire it from outside, what type of
recruitment method to be used, what geographical area be considered, for
searching the candidates, which source of recruitment to be practiced, and
what sequence of activities to be followed in recruiting candidates in the
This step involves attracting job seeders to the organization. There are broadly
two sources used to attract candidates. These are:
Through some view screening as the starting point of selection, we have
considered it as an integral part of recruitment. The reason being the
selection process starts only after the application have been screened and
short listed. Let it be exemplified with an example. In the Universities,
application is invited for filling the post of Professors. Application received in
respond to invitation, i.e. advertisement are screened and short listed on the
basis of eligibility and suitability. Then, only the screened applicant are
invited for seminar presentation and personal interview. The selection process
starts from here, i.e., seminar presentation or interview. Job specification is
invaluable n screening. Applications are screened against the qualification,
knowledge, skills, abilities, interest and experience mentioned in the job
specification. Those who do not qualify are straightway eliminated from the
selection process. The techniques used for screening candidates are vary
depending on the source of supply and method used for recruiting. Preliminary
applications, de-selections tests and screening interviews are common techniques
used for screening the candidates.
Evaluation and control:-
Given the considerable involved in the recruitment process, its evaluation and
control is, therefore, imperative. The costs generally incurred in a recruitment
• Salary of recruiters;
• Cost of time spent for preparing job analysis, advertisement, etc;
• Administrative expenses;
• Cost of outsourcing or overtime while vacancies remain unfilled;
• Cost incurred in recruiting unsuitable candidates.
In view of above, it is necessary for a prudent employed to try answering certain
• Whether the recruitment methods are appropriate and valid?
• Whether the recruitment process followed in the organization is
effective at all or not?
1.8 METHODS OF RECRUITMENT
Recruitment methods refer to the means by which an organization reaches to the
potential job seeker. It is important to mention that the recruitment methods are
different from the resources of recruitment. The major line of distinction between
the two is that while the former is the means of establishing links with the
prospective candidates, the latter is location where the prospective employees
are available. Dunn and Stephen have broadly classified methods of
recruitment into three categories. These are;
Third Party Method.
Brief descriptions of these are follows:
In this method, the representatives of the organizations are sent to the potential
candidates in the educational and training institutes. They establish contacts with the
candidates seeking jobs. Person pursuing management, engineering, medical, etc.
programmers are mostly picked up the manner.
Sometimes, some employer firm establishes with professors and solicits
information about student with excellent academic records. Sending the recruiter
to the conventions, seminars, setting up exhibits at fairs and using mobile
office to go to the desired centers are some other methods used establish direct
contact with the job seekers.
Indirect methods include advertisements in the newspaper, on the radio and
television, in professional journals, technical magazines, etc. this method is
Organization dose not find suitable candidates to be promoted to fill up the
When the organization want to reach out a vast territory, and
When organization wants to fill up scientific, professional and technical posts.
The experience suggests that the higher the position to be filled up in the
organization, or the skill sought by the sophisticated one, the more widely
dispersed advertisement is likely to be used to reach too many suitable
candidates. Sometimes, many organizations go for what referred to as blind
advertisement in which only Box No. is given and the identity of the
organization is not disclosed. However, organizations with regional or national
repute do not usually use blind advertisements for obvious reasons.
While placing an advertisement to reach to the potential candidates, the
following three points need to borne in mind:
To visualize the type of the applicant one is trying recruit;
To write out a list of the advantages the job will offer;
To decide where to run the advertisement , i.e., newspaper with local,
state, nation-wide and international reach or circulation.
Third Party Method:
These include the use of private employment agencies, management
consultants, professional bodies pr associations, employee referral or
recommendation, voluntary organization, trade banks, labor contractors, etc.,
to establish contact with the job seekers.
Now, a question arises; which particular method is to be used to recruit
employee in the organization? The answer to it is that it will depend on the policy
of the particular firm, the position of the labor supply, the government
regulations in this regard and agreements with labor organizations.
Notwithstanding, the best recruitment method is to look first within the
EFFECTIVENESS OF RECRUIITMENT PROGRAMME
Though there has so far not been evolved any formula such that makes recruitment
programme necessitates having certain attributes such as:
A well – defined recruitment policy.
A proper organizational structure.
A well - laid down procedure for locating potential jobseekers.
A suitable method and technique for tapping and utilizing these candidates
A continuous assessment of effectiveness of recruitment programme and
incorporation of suitable modifications from time to improve the effectiveness of the
An ethically sound fool-proof telling an applicant all about the job and its
position, the firm to enable the candidate to judiciously decide whether or not to
apply and join the firm, if selected.
2.1 MEANING AND DEFINATION
Selection is the process of picking individuals (out of the pool of job
applicants) with requisite qualifications and competence to fill jobs in the
organization. A formal definition of Selection is:-
“ It is the process of differentiating between applicants in order to
identify (and here) those with a greater likelihood of success in a job.’’
Recruitment and selection are the two crucial in the HR process and are often used
interchangeably. There I, however, a fine distinction between the two steps. While
recruitment refers to the process of identifying and encouraging prospective
employees to apply for jobs, selection is concerned with picking the right
candidates from the pool of applicants. Recruitment is said to be positive in its
approach as it seeks to attract as many candidates as possible. Selection, on the other
hand, is negative in its application in as it seeks to eliminate as many unqualified
applicants as possible in order to identify the right candidates.
2.2 ROLE OF SELECTION
The role of selection in an organization’s effectiveness is crucial for at least, two
reasons; first, work performance depends on individuals. The best way to improve
performance is to hire people who have the competence and the willingness to work.
Arguing from the employee’s viewpoint, poor or inappropriate choice can be
demoralizing to the individual concerned (who finds himself or herself in the wrong
job) and de-motivating to the rest of the workforce. Effective selection, therefore,
assumes greater relevance.
Second, cost incurred in recruiting and hiring personnel speaks about volumes of
the selection. Costs of wrong selection are greater.
2.3 STEPS IN SELECTION PROCESS
2.4 ORGANISATION FOR SELECTION
Until recently, the basic hiring process was performed in a rather unplanned
manner in many organizations. In some companies, each department screened and
hired its own employees. Many managers insisted upon selecting their own people
because they were sure no one else could choose employee for them as efficiently as
they themselves could. Not any more. Selection is now centralized and is handled by
the human resources department.
Ideally, a selection process involves mutual decision-making. The organization
decides whether or not to make a job offer and how attractive the offer should be. The
candidate decides whether or not organization and the fob offer fit his or her needs
and goal. In reality, the selection process is highly one-side. When the job market is
extremely right, several candidates will be applying for a position, and the
organization will use a series of screening devices to hire the candidates it feels
is most suitable. When there is a shortage of qualified workers, or when the
candidate is a highly qualified executive or professional who is being sought
after by several organizations, the organizations will have to sweeten its offer and
come to a quicker decision.
2.5 NEW METHOD OF SELECTION
In recent years, HR specialists have found out new methods of selection. These
approaches are deemed to the alternatives to the traditional methods of selection.
Two intersecting alternatives are participative selection and employee leasing.
Participative selection that subordinates participates in the selection of their co-
workers and supervisors. The idea is that such participation will improve quality,
increase support for the selected supervisors and co-workers, and improve employee
morale. In employee leasing, the client company leases employees from a third part,
not on a temporary basis, but rather ate leased as full-time, long-term help. An
interesting feature of this method is that the client company need not perform
such personnel activities as hiring, compensation or record keeping. The
advantages of employee leasing are significant. The client is relived from many
administrative burdens, as well as the need to employ specialized personnel
employees. Further, employees not recruited by one client are sent to another
client company for employment.
2.6 SELECTION IN INDIA
Conditions of labor market largely determine the selection process. As is well
known, we have a strange paradox in our country. There is large-scale unemployment
juxtaposed with shortage of skilled labor. ‘No Vacancy’ boards are seen along with
‘wanted…’ hung on factory gates everywhere’.
Unemployment prevails among people who are unemployable-individuals who
have acquires university degrees but do not possess any specific skills. Matriculates,
B.A.’s, B.Com’s, and B.Sc’s fall into this category. All the evils associated with
selection –corruption, favoritism and influence- are found in hiring these people.
Selection is obviously, not systematic and times bizarre too.
Selection practices in hiring skilled and managerial personnel are fairly well
defined and systematically practiced. Particularly in hiring managerial personnel
and executives, a lot of professionalism has come in, thanks to the realization that
these individual are difficult to come by and no effort is too excess to attract
them. Specialist agencies to available whose services are retained for hiring
technical and managerial personnel. Merit and not favorite, objectivity and
subjectivity will be the criteria for such selections.

The IMS Way…
'Love the job you are doing and you will never have to work a day in your life’.
This simple adage captures the essence of our employees being with us. Our team
members at IMS are here because they identify with IMS's vision – that of
'mentoring' the youth of this country to dream, 'motivating' them towards greater
hopes and aspirations and 'guiding' them on the right track to realize those ambitions.
We have a fun-based work culture combined with an open door policy of the
management and approachability, which differentiates us from the also-ran.
Independence of thought and action and initiative is greatly appreciated at IMS. We
encourage creativity and excellence. This is reinforced by the positive attitude of our
employees - an attitude that helps maintain an optimum 'Work - Life Balance'.We
know that every interaction a student has with us is vital. Hence, we esteem these
interactions that builds the foundation for the student to embark on the right career
track. Faced with a choice between a student's interest and the company's interest, it is
always the former that gets a priority. It is this dedication that makes IMS stand apart
from other organizations.
Do you have the PASSION to make a positive difference in a young person's life and
in our society? If your answer is Yes, send us your profile to
firstname.lastname@example.org and we shall get in touch with you in case of a suitable
As our credo effectively sums it up, we aim for 'Excellence Through Innovation,
Empathy, and Ethical Values And Teamwork'.
Our employees are our greatest resources and it is their commitment and drive that
makes IMS what it is today. We believe in our employees and encourage them to
think beyond the obvious and aim beyond the horizon. Go on and read about the
experiences which some of our employees, our pillars of strength would like to share.
Gejo Sreenivasan, a dynamic MBA from IIM-C, who has constantly enriched his
growth from an Assistant Manager (Marketing) to a Product Head today, shares his
reminiscences, "Personally I feel that IMS is a wonderful place to work with. I have
worked with the most talented individuals in the industry. My work experience in
IMS has provided me with a tremendous opportunity to learn and grow. In my
opinion, this is a dynamic organization with unlimited energy."
We have always believed in our employees and it is this very belief and trust that
translates and manifests itself in the initiatives our employees take, the passion and
enthusiasm with which they contribute to our vision and mission. As Manisha Sagar,
Assistant Centre Manager of IMS-Thane, rightly puts it: "Across the hierarchy of
IMS, there are professionals who are treasures of talent and skills, and yet very
humble and helpful. It is because of this amicability and cooperation that even the
most critical situations are dealt with ease. That is what I believe is a vital part of the
IMS work culture."
The work-oriented approach and open corporate etiquette ensures that each of our
employees attains his potential and performs beyond the obvious. Praveen Murmu, an
MBA from IIM-C who has worked with us for over five years in both line as well as
staff functions says, "It has been a great learning experience for me guiding students,
which has provided me a sense of purpose and perspective."
Vinayak Kudva, Head - Course Design (Mathematics), opines "IMS believes in
fostering and supporting its employees so that they can not only contribute to the
organization's goals more effectively but also achieve their individual objectives."
Innovative and constructive ideas are encouraged and readily implemented at IMS. A
constant endeavor at achieving excellence coupled with empathy and motivation
given to the employees helps them realize their full potential. IMS also gives them a
platform to unleash their caliber. Kaushik Ramachandran, an MBA from IIM-L, who
is currently working as a Manager for International Operations has used this
opportunity to share his views about being an IMSian, "Product Conceptualization,
Product Development, Marketing Plans, Technology Plans for Servicing, Identifying
Right People to take product to market. All those I learned 5 years back at IIM were
used by me for the first time at IMS... Simply put it was absolute fun to work with
great set of like-minded individuals. Have never been more satisfied in my life".
All these viewpoints prove that IMS is an extremely professional organization. At the
same time, we believe in having a work-conducive yet comfortable atmosphere across
our centres. Rajesh Lad, who heads the Sion Centre and also takes lectures, asserts
that he has "experienced a 'family atmosphere' at my centre. Such an environment
very much facilitates the individual's as well the team's optimum performance."
This atmosphere also translates into a very approachable outlook that we maintain
towards all our students - in line with our ideology of 'Mentor. Motivate. Guide.'
Roshni D'Souza, an Assistant Manager with the Systems Team in the Corporate
Office and a Part-Time Faculty, hits the nail on the head with her statement: "There
can never be a monotonous day at IMS because each day presents new students and
through them, new challenges to be faced, new dreams to be nourished, new
experiences to be cherished."
All these experiences at IMS underpin what we have always believed in - our team
members are our greatest assets. Roshni says, " Samuel Butler has rightly said that
People are always good company when they are doing what they really enjoy. This
truism best represents why I am here at IMS. I enjoy talking with students, knowing
about their dreams, helping them out. Despite being a part of the Systems Team, I
utilize the opportunity being a faculty as I enjoy it when students look at me as not
just a faculty but as a guide, a mentor and a friend. I know I am 'good company' for
both-my students as well as my colleagues at IMS."
We as a part of the HR Team would like to share our experiences too…"IMS values
and our philosophy has been close to our hearts. We believe in Mentoring, Motivating
and guiding those associated with us. Be it our students or our employees. In fact, this
led to the inception of IMS Mentorship Programme where we have always
encouraged those who aspire to study further. To sum up, we would consider IMS as
a place for people who have a passion and have a dream of walking their way to
