Placing a deserving candidate at a right place, at a right time ensures that the organisation would not perform below its targeted objectives.

Within that context, a process of recruiting and selecting possesses a paramount importance as it is that door that facilitates new comers to become a part of a team. However, online recruitment and selection have considerably revolutionized this concept from the management points of view and from a potential applicant’s point of view. 13 Boots and Waitrose are two companies who are analysed from the management’s perspective. The former sets a certain expectations. And, for that purpose it uses the images and pictures in a way to influence over the thinking of potential candidates for employment in Boots.

It portrays the pictures and images of its employees as being satisfied with the environment and they enjoy working with Boots. The Boots management considers and values such depictions as a way to communicate with the potential employees. They believe that the content and messages being displayed on its recruitment website must be simple, easy to read and understandable, and it must deliver what the management expect that content to. On the other hand, Waitrose do not use images and pictures of its employee to depict the inside environment of Waitrose.

Instead, Waitrose believe in using more professional content and professional use of words in a way to satisfy the expectations of potential employees. For example, its use the word “partners” instead of using “employees”. This sort of management philosophy highlights how much values Waitrose attaches with its current and potential partners. They give them a sense of partnership rather than a concept of employee-employer relationship. 13 5.2 Recommendations 14 6.0Bibliography 15 7.0Appendices 16 7.1Peer Review Forms 16 7.2 Interview Questions 19 Executive Summary 1.0 Introduction Recruitment and selection is one of the most important factors to consider for an organisation.
