The true hallmark of a great organization is its people. Impeccable ROI, fantastic customer success stories, and all that is underpinning these are an organization's employees. In HR speak, your people are truly your greatest asset.

This profound thought is backed by many industry leaders. Here is a perfect one from Apple's bigwig. Steve Jobs once said, "Great things in business are never done by one person. They are done by a team of people."

And how right he was! It is simple: the people you ultimately choose to recruit form the core of your organization's success. However, not everyone is as lucky as you! Cash-strapped businesses, in particular, often hesitate to start hiring, even when they need a helping hand.

"What is the purpose of hiring?" they ask. Really - what is the whole point of recruitment, especially when one bad hire can cost you an average of $4,129, up to 30% of the employee's first-year earnings according to the USDOL?

Naturally, it is not easy to forget that taking on a new employee can be a massive investment, which can burn a hole in your pocket. Oh, and once you also start factoring in the cost of infrastructural overheads and targeting training expenses, the dollars add up rather quickly. That is why it is important to hire right.

And that brings us to the topic of how much of a game-changing role recruitment plays for an organization's well-being. Driving revenue, growth, and innovation in your organization, your hiring activity is expensive, so make sure it pays off in rich dividends.

Throwing caution to the wind and recruiting mindlessly will eat into your organization's revenue, especially in a post-Covid digital landscape. With the new normal making its presence felt, recruiting has only gotten more complex and nuanced. Let us explore how to make it a painless and hassle-free activity. But first, let us get the basics out of the way.

Recruiting is the positive process of identifying, analyzing, and estimating the potential of prospective hires to match fitment for an organization's work and culture.

It is a dynamic activity that does not follow a linear approach. When the applicant pool is vast, the recruitment gets a flavor of diversity because it opens up a versatile talent pool.
