Recruitment is the end-to-end process of effectively and efficiently sourcing, screening, selecting, and appointing the best-suited candidate to the right role. This entails not only filling in vacancies but also predicting talent requirements and proactively managing talent.

For example, with succession planning becoming an effective practice across sectors, especially for senior executives, recruiters today need to be able to build and keep handy a steady talent pipeline to fill in those vacancies that cannot be filled through internal hiring or promotions.

With the state of flux that characterizes the current talent and business ecosystems, there is a growing need for smarter recruitment strategies. This involves identifying talent needs, developing ways to source the target talent group, building an employer brand that can motivate application, applying modern screening and selection technologies, and formulating effective onboarding strategies to help new employees succeed.

Recruitment is the process of hiring new staff, from initial discussions around opening a new position and what the position entails through to onboarding and developing the new staff member.

HR director involvement in the recruitment process will typically be around the perceptions of the employer branding and talent acquisition. In small SMEs the most senior HR representative may handle the recruitment process from start to finish.

Recruitment is often undertaken in-house but may also be outsourced to recruitment companies, who specialise in locating suitable candidates. Recruitment companies vary in the services they offer; some advertise available positions only while others will handle the whole recruitment process. Executive search firms are specialist businesses who source and recruit individuals for senior and executive-level positions.

Onboarding is the final stage of the recruitment process and involves integrating a new hire with the physical, emotional and practical aspects of the role, as well as the organisational culture.
