About The Book

Recruitment of talented employees is an essential part of any company’s ability to maintain success and ensure the achievement of standards within an organisation.

As the world economy experiences significant improvements in employment, slowly growing and becoming more stable in the prolonged wake of The Great Recession, spurred job creation could usher in innovation for recruiters. Across the globe, as more businesses look to hire new employees quickly so they can meet the rising demands of their operations, HR personnel appear to be turning to advanced tools that will help them make their recruiting practices more efficient.

While the Internet alone has proved to be an effective solution for companies hoping to hire, organisations are now embracing mobility to ensure that they make the applications process readily available to viable prospects, which could allow companies to take on the talent they need without expending a substantial amount of resources.

As recruiting innovations continue to grow, we are excited about the new and emerging technologies and how they will disrupt our industry. In today’s recruiting landscape, businesses have more choices than ever when it comes to talent acquisition and recruitment solutions. As employers and recruiters look to the most effective channels for sourcing the most qualified talent, it is important that they also assess their own internal hiring processes.

The composition of the handbook is as per the prescribed syllabus of Mumbai University, for Second Year BMS Semester III students and instructors at large. It shall also prove valuable to HR executives for in-depth references and study for enhancing their conceptual understanding.
