Abstract

Purpose: This research dissertation looks to explore the recruitment and selection process employed by a manufacturing company and look at other recruitment and selection alternatives which the Manufacturing Company could use to try and reduce their staff turnover.

Approach: The researcher distributed questionnaires among the recruiters and the employees in order to get feedback on how the recruitment process worked, what the job entailed, and what type of person would be the right fit for this Manufacturing Company. The researcher also observed the general operatives at work, and carried out some exit interviews to assess why people were leaving their positions. The researcher also looked at alternative recruitment and selection processes the Manufacturing Company could use.

Findings: The researcher found some issues with the current recruitment and selection process. The returned questionnaires clearly pointed out problems which the Manufacturing Company must address. The researcher gave some recommendations as to how the Manufacturing Company can improve their current process, and hopefully reduce their staff turnover.
