E-recruitment and Selection

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

The use of information and communication technologies has revolutionized e-recruitment and selection function in many organizations, especially transforming it into a time- and space-independent process of sourcing and evaluating candidates. In the process, organizations rely on websites, social media and job portals for sourcing candidates and deploy computerized and online assessment tools when selecting the best-qualified applicants. Similarly, their communication with jobseekers has moved to cyberspace and is often performed through applicant tracking systems, where hiring managers use mobile technologies to track and evaluate candidates. In this chapter, we present an overview of e-recruitment and selection practices and discuss the use of technology throughout the hiring process.

Bibliographical note

As with other parts of business, technology is having a profound effect on the world of work and management of human resources. Technology is a key enabler for faster, cheaper and better delivery of HR services and in some cases can have a transformational as well as unintended negative effect.

Designed for the digital era, e-HRM is one of the first textbooks on these developments. It incorporates the most current and important HR Technology related topics in five distinct parts under one umbrella written by leading scholars drawn from across the world. All the chapters have a uniform structure, and pay equal attention to theory and practice with an applied focus. Learning resources of the book include chapter-wise learning objectives, case study, debate on related burning issues, and a companion website.
