The Recruitment Process: From An Administrative Burden To Online Communication

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review

The aim of this research was to determine whether the introduction of e-recruitment has an impact on the process and underlying tasks, subtasks and activities of recruitment. Three large organizations with well-established e-recruitment practices were included in the study. The three case studies, which were carried out in Denmark in 2008-2009 using qualitative research methods, revealed changes in the sequence, divisibility and repetitiveness of a number of recruitment tasks and subtasks. The new recruitment process design was identified and presented in the paper. The study concluded that the main task of the process shifted from processing applications to communicating with candidates.
