Module Discussion Board
HRM professionals must plan to effectively recruit applicants who will be the right “fit” for available positions. Strategic planning and forecasting for recruitment are essential to ensure that the best applicants are selected from the available pool. New trends in recruitment efforts, such as the use of the Internet, have added an element of globalization to this HRM function, making it easier to recruit a diverse workforce. However, recruiting older workers, women, individuals with disabilities, and minorities may still require additional efforts on the part of an HRM professional.
Present the strategies for recruiting and managing a diverse workforce, differentiating between legal compliance and an integrated approach to inclusion within your organization or organization you are familiar with?
