Dear Aarti
In recruitment Hr plays a major part mainly in identifiying right candidate for the right job.
Why we take first round?
There are many reasons
!. We dont want to waste the time of the technical people by sending unscreened candidate
2. To make sure that this candidate suit our organization.
3. Candidates silly questions are cleared in first round.
How HR Can control the excess Recruitment in the organization.
You have a good understanding of business of the organization u belong and should be involved in all aspects of Managment planning.
Eg: Manpower Planning,Yearly Target and in financial meetings etc.
Then you will know what kind and how much people required to run the company.

Hey Arti,

Thanks for the response dear!!

See there are always two facets to a coin, similarly in recruitment role of HR is like that, technical people see just one facet that recruitment is all about interviewing and then hiring the candidate.

How ever the other side is for HR, to judge candidate on the parameters such as:

-Communication skills,
-Presentation skills
-Their attitude and confidence
-Adaptability to the culture
-suitability to the role
-to answer queries of candidates regarding role, company, timings, leaves etc

These are the things we generally try to find out in initial rounds before sending the candidate for technical rounds.

As Mr. Anand also mentioned that technical people will blame HR then for not sourcing right candidate if HR would not be a part of recruitments.

from Sourcing the candidate to giving final offer letter and designing their compensation structure is all part of HR. Its only for technical interviews and gelling with their departmental heads one or 2 rounds are in between for technical/functional departments.

Now the other question - How HR can control the excess recruitment?

Manpower planning is the solution to curb and control any excess selection. HR plays a key role from designing organogram, to drafting JDs, evaluating the requirements, when and how much is required, succession planning, positions requirement in the whole organisation, looking in details if there is any duplication of work/position, budgets for recruitment and so on.

Hope it resolves your query...,..:)
