can u give exact meaning of recruitment.
From India, Hyderabad

According to Edwin B. Flippo, recruitment is the process of searching the candidates for employment and stimulating them to apply for jobs in the organisation”. Recruitment is the activity that links the employers and the job seekers. A few definitions of recruitment are:

• A process of finding and attracting capable applicants for employment. The process begins when new recruits are sought and ends when their applications are submitted. The result is a pool of applications from which new employees are selected.

Recruitment is a continuous process whereby the firm attempts to develop a pool of qualified applicants for the future human resources needs even though specific vacancies do not exist. Usually, the recruitment process starts when a manger initiates an employee requisition for a specific vacancy or an anticipated vacancy.


i.e. the needs arising from changes in organization and retirement policy.

Anticipated needs are those movements in personnel, which an organization can predict by studying trends in internal and external environment.

Resignation, deaths, accidents, illness give rise to unexpected needs.

In simplest words, Recruitment means calling for the applications for a job (through advertisement e.g.) and receiving the applications/resumes.
That's it basically.
It may not be that simple as it sounds for the reason there are quite a few steps involved in the process:
. Receiving a requisition for staff
. Making sure you are aware of the Job Description and Specification for the person you are looking for (absence of which in turn also involves many steps)
. Placing an ad (which also involves a number of things to think about), etc.
But in a nutshell, top two lines serve the purpose.
