The Recruitment Procedures Important of having an efficient and effective procedure foe recruitment and selection is very important. One of the most important 1stbsteps in planning for recruitment is to establish a suitable policy and procedure. Success or desired results could be achieved only then. A recruitment policy in a typical situation may indicate out the principles or the code of the company adopting in recruitment. E.g.:
Advertise all vacancies internally. Reply all job applicants with minimum delay. Aim to inform all potential candidates basic details and job conditions of every job advertised.

Aim to process all applications with the same efficiency Seek candidates on the basis of their qualifications for the vacancy. Aim to ensure that every candidate invited for interview will be given a fair and a through hearing.

Selection is a process by which you select the most suitable and qualified individuals for specific positions in the organization. Why selection of right employee is so important. Your own performances always depend in part on your subordinates. Employees with the right skills and attributes will do a better job for you and the company. It is too costly to recruit and hire employees. Legal implications.

The Selection Process Screening and Short-Listing of Applications(Review Applications) Preliminary interviews Employment test/Selection test Secondary interviews Reference checking Medical examination Selection decision

Screening and Short-Listing of Applications its obvious that you will get applications which are not in line with the advertised criteria. In order to reduce time wasting, these applications need to be screened out and only the applications which meet minimum entry criteria will be taken to the next step.

Preliminary Interviews this is a process that determines whether applicant is in fact as impressive as the application submitted. This brings about one of the 1st personnel contacts of an individual with the company and since its the stage at which some candidates get rejected. Types of Interviews Structured(Directive) Unstructured(Non-Directive) Methods of Interviews Personnel Interview Panel Interview Mass Interview Computerized Interview Video tape Interview

Personality test Test of motor and physical abilities Intelligent test Simulations Management Assessment Centers

Secondary Interviews Most organizations have a minimum of 2 or 3 interviews depending on the recruitment procedure of the company. Reference Checking This usually takes place either before or after the 2nd interview. Most organizations provide space on the application from for the purpose of listing references. References can be obtained either personally from the schools and institutions or from past employer.

Medical Examination Medical tests are a requirement in certain organizations. Candidates have to be proved fit for employment in certain trades such as armed services.

Analysis of Recruitment & Selection in Amana Invests

Amana invests company is very popular company in Srilanka and they have many branches in all over the country. So they have very big number of employees. Among their employees some are turnover the organization and some designate from the organization. So company has many vacancies and HR department must fill these vacancies. So their recruit and select new employees highly recommended way. So the company has 8 major departments and if their have any vacancy the department heads are informed the HR department and HR department get all the information about that job vacancy and they get responsibility to recruit a new employee to that position. The 1st step of recruitment process is the HR department find an existing employee in their organization and if they found an employee in their organization they give that job to the employee. So that way is very profitable to their company. The methods of advertising vacancies Notice Boards Circulars Annual General Meeting Company journal

By recruiting existing employees to higher post, its very advantages for the company. Because the time they spent to recruit a new employee is very few. In otherwise managers confidence about the employee is very high and the employee is highly motivated and he/she do their work accurately.

Otherwise if they recruit a employee out side of the organization. This is get more time to recruit a new employee and spent more money to recruit an employee. The 1st step is the HR department put an advertisement on the media about the vacancy. The ways that they advertise are Newspapers www.amana.lk www.sofjob.com So in that advertisement they published all the information of the position and they publish the job application in their web site and www.sofjob.com.They give a deadline to all the candidates

to submit their applications to the HR department and they strictly reject the applications that submitted after the deadline. After the deadline the HR department collect the all the applications which they are received and they firstly they check whether all the CVs and applications are in order to suitable manner. If they arent reject those applications. After the checking those applications they send a letters to all applicants those who are select to the 1st interview. The purpose of the1st interview is identifying the applicant to the interview board; the interview board consists with 3 members. The applicant should introduce his/her self to the interview board. After the 1st interview they select some number of applicants to the 2nd step. The 2nd step is writing exam. The examination questions are consisting with 4 major parts. Job related Math Writing skills General knowledge

They give marksout of 200 and those who got above 125 considered pass. Strictly say that they doing the examinations for the above of officers level. The 3rd step is second interview. It is called as rough interview, because this interview is the turning point of the applicant. If the applicant the pass the interview he/her can reach the last step and if he failed he/her will throw out. After the 2nd interview the next step is the 2nd examination. Its too difficult to the applicant. The examination consists with 2 major parts. Job related General knowledge They give marks out of 100 and those who got above 70 considered pass. And the next step is interview with department heads. After this interview, the applicant who passes this interview, company recruits them as new employees. Before the recruitment the company checks the references of applicants and the do medical examination to the applicant. After all of these new employee is welcome to the company.


Amana Invests is very huge investment company in Srilanka. So they have big number of employees. After ending of their service, they are turnover from the company.

So department heads are must recruit new employees to fill those vacancies. Most of the department heads idea is recruits new employees out side of the company. The department heads are consider as recruiting new employees from the outside is very advantage for their company. But the existing employees have more experiences and they have good understanding about the environment of the company. So 1st departments heads are should give chance to their existing employees. In other hand its also very advantage for the company. Because the employees are motivated and doing the works to company success. The HR department is held the examinations for above of officers level. They didnt hold the examinations for below of the officers level of employees when they were recruiting. Its a wrong idea. Because the below of the officers level employees are also valuable resources to the company. So when they recruiting the company, the company must check their knowledge.

In other hand firstly they published their vacancies in their web site. But the few of people have the internet facility. So some of the qualified people didnt get chance to send the job applications. They published it on newspapers two weeks before to the deadline. So it is too short period to send job applications.

They do references checking after the applicant selecting from the 2nd interview. But they should check it after the 1st interview.


Amana Invests is big company and their existing employees and customers are heart of the company. So the recruiting system of Amana invests is highly recommended and its very transparency. But the after the 2nd examination the company informed the applicant by calling to him/her. Its very unpleasant, because if the company calling to the applicant when he busy time or when he switched off the phone, the applicant will skip that big opportunity. So company should send a letter to the applicant, its highly appropriate.
