Why does my business need a Recruitment and Selection Policy and Procedure?

A Recruitment and Selection Policy and Procedure should be used by any business who is looking to hire employees in the present or future.

Implementing a Recruitment and Selection Policy and Procedure can assist your business to prevent discrimination in the workplace by clearly identifying each step of the hiring process.

A Recruitment and Selection Policy and Procedure is different to an Equal Opportunity Policy (hyperlink for Equal opportunity policy template) which focuses on characteristics which are not to be discriminated against and provides anti-discrimination guidelines, whereas, a recruitment and selection policy primarily focuses on recruitment and the recruitment process.

A Recruitment and Selection Policy and Procedure will assist your business to:

  • Prevent exclusion and maintain fair and equal hiring opportunities based on merit.
  • Provide direction to hiring managers and executives on the hiring process in relevant considerations to be made.
  • Maintain a consistent and transparent hiring process.
  • Remain legally compliant with recruitment and selection laws.

If you or your business is considering hiring, we suggest implementing a Recruitment and Selection Policy to assist your business to remain compliant with recruitment laws and maintain transparency and consistency.
