HR Roles and Responsibilities in Recruitment Process
Human Resources is not responsible for the final selection of the job candidate in the recruitment process. The manager is always responsible for the final decision about the hire of the new employee.
HR Role in the recruitment process is about the corporate culture, background check, proper use of the recruitment channels and the compliance of the recruitment process. Human Resources is responsible for setting the recruitment process and for meeting the basic rules.
The main HR Role in the recruitment process is about setting the correct Recruitment Strategy. The recruitment strategy defines the recruitment channels, responsibilities of managers, costs associated with hiring new employees and recruitment key performance indicators.
The main role and responsibility of managers in the recruitment process is in following the rules and stick to deadlines defined by Human Resources. The managers cannot complain about the slow recruitment process, when the delays are usually at their side and the best job candidate is lost as the manager is not able to make a short phone call.
HR Roles and Responsibilities in recruitment process are not about conducting job interviews. The manager wants to hire a new employee, the manager should organize the job interview on his or her own within the time frame defined by Human Resources. As HR Recruiters conducts 1st round job interviews, the job candidates have to be told, by when they will be contacted by the responsible manager. That is why, it is important to meet the deadlines defined by the recruitment strategy as the process can run smoothly.
