XYZ GROUP
RECRUITMENT POLICY

The XYZ Group policy on recruitment provides for equal employment


opportunity to all applicants, without regard to religion, caste, colour,
gender, and disability or veteran status. The recruitment is carried in
a transparent manner, paving no room for malpractices
/unprofessional conduct such as extending preferential treatment or
favouring those having influence of political outfit, bureaucrats or
worker representative bodies, unless the candidate is found
suitable/apt for the position concerned, possessing the right required
qualifications and skills and relevant experience, provided he or she
passes through the company selection process - interview/test.

It adopts an action plan composed of three strategies – Attract the


best talent; develop each individual to their fullest potential and retain
its employees at all levels.

Objective of the policy


 To attract and retain highly qualified, talented workforce
available to us

XYZ HR-DEPTT / Confidential - Internal Use Only


3

 To disseminate information about employment opportunities


with the Company through numerous channels, to ensure
necessary attraction.
To ensure recognition, advancement and development of the
current employees
The policy document covers the following aspects of
recruitment:

 Estimating the manpower requirement


 Decision authority vested in various levels of
management
 Preconditions for recruitment
 Roles of various players in recruitment
 Recruitment Sources
 Recruitment and Selection Methods
 Stages of recruitment and guidelines for every stage
 Detailed guidelines for conducting Interviews
 Post-recruitment guidelines and procedures

I. Estimating the number and class of manpower required for


present and immediate future needs.
The requirements are carefully estimated because any negligence
would result in either overstaffing or understaffing.
The estimation of the number of employees required for each
category/cadre or work level depends on the following factors
 New show rooms /Installed machinery
 Employee turnover in a particular section/department
 Superannuation
 Promotion
 Transfers
 Degree of automation
 Introduction of new processes

XYZ HR-DEPTT / Confidential - Internal Use Only


4

 Increased additional responsibilities


 Expansion plans

2. Authority for Various Decisions on Recruitment


Recruitment related decisions vary in scope and impact.
Annexure I give a detailed list of various issues involved and
the decision-making authority for every one of those issues.

In summary,
 New positions are sanctioned by the CEO;
 Filling up of sanctioned positions is at the discretion of the
Business/ Functional ED in consultation with HRD;
 Regulation of recruitment matters in line with the policy
and HR principles is handled by HRD;
 Administrative, procedural and liaison matters are taken
care of by HRD
 Senior level recruitment directly involves CEO in all
matters

3. Preconditions for Recruitment


Any position would be filled up only if there is a vacancy arising
out of the separation of an employee or there is a newly created
position on explicit written sanction from CEO. While
recruitment efforts such as, calling for candidates or
interviewing candidates etc may be initiated, appointment order
for a person could be issued only if the position and the level
are sanctioned.

Company would encourage planned manner of recruitment


rather than a piecemeal approach. In March every year, all
Business and Functional Heads would present to CEO a
manpower plan for the year indicating requirements in terms of
number, level and timing along with a detailed justification for
every position. After necessary discussions CEO would
sanction the additional manpower wherever required. This
would be a basic source for recruitment planning and
budgeting.

favour internal sources more than external ones to fill in


vacancies at all levels except the entry level.

The Company shall not consider for employment


candidates from the following sources:
 People employed with close business associates unless

6. Guidelines for different stages of recruitment

XYZ HR-DEPTT / Confidential - Internal Use Only


9

Vacancy Assessment – A position is said to be vacant if it


already sanctioned and is not being manned. It may have
arisen because the incumbent has left the company or been
posted in another job. It might have been created new by due
process of sanction. New positions are created to manage new
and emergent jobs mentioned in the annual manpower plan
and are sanctioned by the CEO. At certain times when the
incumbent leaves the job the position may be abolished and it
would not be counted as a vacant position. Recruitment should
be initiated only for a sanctioned position, which is vacant.

Initiating Recruitment – Recruitment is always initiated by


Departmental Head for all positions. The initiator shall send the
manpower requisition form to HRD and discuss with HR Head
on possible sources. Any difference in job specifications
compared to that in database would also be discussed. HRD
and the Department Head would agree on methods and end
dates for recruitment depending on the urgency. The
department has the option of keeping a vacancy in abeyance.

Internal Search – On receiving the requirement HRD would


assess availability of internal candidates either on its own or on
the advice of the Department. As this would not be fresh
search, this process should not take more than a day. However,
if there are possibilities, which need to be discussed with other
departments, it may take more time.

Database Search - HRD would also simultaneously search the


candidates’ database for a possible match. If found the details
may be given to the department. This should take less than a
day.

XYZ HR-DEPTT / Confidential - Internal Use Only


10

External Search – within a week of initiation department and


HRD may have decided on external search. HRD would discuss
with the department the different options such as
advertisements or consultants etc.

Ad Release – HRD shall arrange to get the advertisement


designed, composed and checked for release. This should take
less than a week. Keeping the department informed, HRD
would release the ad for publication in journals decided upon.
HRD would have on roll specialised agents for ad release in
various publications to ensure getting the best rates. While
releasing ads HRD may include similar positions even if
vacancies do not exist but are foreseen. Advertisements for the
same position would not be released within six months.
Advertisements would include items such as job specs,
candidate specs, company information, contact information etc.
Advertisements would be designed by a creative agency and
HRD coordinate with them ensuring completeness and
correctness of the ad including correct representation of
corporate name, logo and symbols.

Consultants – For certain positions, consultants may be asked


to furnish leads by HRD. These may be for positions that have
got no response from the ads or positions that are too urgent or
not urgent at all. Company would prefer dealing with
consultants who take regular assignments and have been
successful in the past. All the consultants are expected to have
a clear contract with the company on the terms of service.
Company may take in a consultant on the advice of a
departmental head provided their terms are similar to the
regular consultants. HRD would coordinate contracting
placement consultants for assisting in employment.

XYZ HR-DEPTT / Confidential - Internal Use Only


11

Brief to the consultants would include


 The job specs such as designation, department, location;
approximate salary may or may not be given
 The candidate specs such as qualifications, years of
experience, industry worked, age, language etc
 The company profile, plans, department the job is placed
etc
 Other items such as probable interview location,
reimbursements, contact person etc
 Consultants would be asked to shortlist candidates on the
basis of the specs, check with the candidates their
interest, assess salary match and then forward the bio
data to the company.

Short-listing the Candidates – HR officer / Coordinator would


do the first stage short listing of applications. First stage short
listing usually is done mechanically by matching the
specifications rigidly and rejecting all candidates who do not
qualify. All applications short-listed at the first stage first stage
would be entered in the Candidates database maintained by
HRD.

HR Head or the Functional Head would do the second stage


short listing. At this stage applicants with most potential would
be selected. HRD may also select some applications for
consideration to other posts currently vacant or likely to arise in
future.

Interview Preliminaries/ Trial test – All short listed candidates


would be called for a preliminary discussion with a HRD
representative. Based on the preliminary discussions if it was
felt that potentiality of the candidature is in doubt the candidate
may be dropped from the process and duly informed.
If the selection involves any tests or exercises this would be
administered by HRD and further short listing may be done in
consultation with the Functional Head concerned.

Interviews – HRD would coordinate with concerned function in


setting the interview panel, dates and the location. The
interview panel would typically involve managers from

XYZ HR-DEPTT / Confidential - Internal Use Only


12

concerned function and HRD. It may involve CEO for senior


level recruitment and specialists from outside for certain
positions.

Panel Composition

All positions of Manager and Related Functional Head,


above in all functions; HR Head, CEO.
Executives ED-BU/Function, Related
Functional Head and HR
Head.
Assistants & Others Concerned Departmental/
Functional head, HR
Representative

Interview Call
Once the panel is setup and the dates are finalised, HRD would
call the candidates for interview either through a letter or an e-
mail or phone. Candidate would be informed of the date, place,
time of the interview and the eligible reimbursements. HRD
would decide on interview location in consultation with panel
members and considering the cost and convenience.
Candidates applying through consultants would be intimated
through the concerned consultant. If many candidates are
called on the same day, their timing would be staggered to
minimise the waiting time.

Candidates’ eligibilities
Company would reimburse the travel expenses to the
candidates coming for interview on par with what they would be
eligible if selected. As special cases, senior level candidates
(for the position of Manager or above) from outstation may be
put in a hotel if interview extends to the next day. Candidate
needs to submit a claim along with supporting for getting the
expenses reimbursed. Company would insist on supporting
from the candidates and exceptions would have to be
authorised by HR Head.

XYZ HR-DEPTT / Confidential - Internal Use Only


13

Main Interview
The main interview would normally in two or three parts with
panelists in a rough order of seniority meeting the candidates
successively. Candidates would be short listed at the end of
every part with only cleared candidates meeting the senior
panel members. HR Head or his nominee would be present in
all interviews to ensure full communication among panelists and
to aid the panelists in administrative formalities such as
recording interviewer’s comments and decisions. The interview
record form (Exhibit) would be filled up after every interview for
recording and filing purposes. Yes-No-Hold decisions should be
clearly marked in the form.

While interviews need not be too structured, every


interview should necessarily cover the following aspects:
 Candidate’s education and family background,
 Reason for seeking change,
 Position aspiring for and long term career goals,
 Functional competence – practical and conceptual
matters relating to concerned function,
 Managerial competence in areas such as communication,
decisiveness, clear thoughts,
 Intangibles such as life’s values, leadership, human
orientation,
 Examples of major achievements,
 Gaps in career, if any,
 Leisure time interests,
 Computer literacy,
 Disabilities, if any,
 Reason for choosing our company,
 locational preferences,
 Salary expectations etc

Candidate should also be explained


 The nature of the job,
 Position offered,
 Background information about the company,
 Any other query the candidate may have.

XYZ HR-DEPTT / Confidential - Internal Use Only


14

Interview Etiquette
The company executives would do their best to extend the
following basic courtesies to all candidates seeking
employment with the company
 Clear information to candidate about date, time and place
of the interview
 Reasonable time for the candidate to appear for the
interview
 Agreeing to genuine requests with strong reasons for
postponing interviews
 Travel directions to outstation candidates
 Starting interviews promptly minimizing the waiting time
 Instruction to people in reception about candidate’s arrival
 Information to candidates if there is any delay
 Setting a decent place for conducting the interview
 Avoiding interruptions during the interview
 Putting the candidate at ease, unless it is a consciously
decided stress interview
 Introducing the panel members to the candidate
 Allowing the candidate to express self reasonably well
 Not making sarcastic comments
 Not making value judgments
 Giving a chance to the candidate to ask questions
 Letting the candidate know the next step in the process
 Explain the administrative formalities such as travel claim
etc
 Feedback to candidate about yes-no-hold decisions

Interviewing Competence
The company expects every member who sits in the panel to
continuously improve their competence as interviewers. While
the competence may come with experience, it often requires a
conscious effort on the part of the interviewer. The following
are some of the skills possessed by successful interviewers.

 Ability to put a person at ease, drawing him out to express


himself; interviewer needs to make polite talk, be aware of
one’s own body language and control it, if required;

XYZ HR-DEPTT / Confidential - Internal Use Only


15

 Ability to switch questioning style from closed to open and


back; closed questions are effective for quick factual
responses and with long-winded speakers; open
questions are best for assessing thinking abilities,
communication skills and opinions;
 Ability to probe the candidate to get in-depth responses
and pinpoint evasive communicators
 Ability to communicate a lot by saying little; giving more
airtime to candidates than oneself
 Ability to spot contradictions and read between the lines
coupled with the patience not to jump to conclusions
 Ability to read non-verbal communication including, eye
contact, paralanguage, posture, shift in tone or rate of
speech, involuntary hand movements, facial expressions
etc to understand candidate’s moods, feelings and
emotions; this needs to coupled with an understanding of
the limitations of non-verbal communication
 Ability to frame neutral, non-leading questions
 Ability to understand the psychological implications of the
stories and statements made by the candidate, the things
emphasised and the things ignored etc
 Ability to test functional knowledge by asking questions
that would stretch the candidate’s thinking
 Reasonable level of self-awareness to understand own
blind spots, biases and weaknesses.
 Ability to rephrase questions or statements and
summarise long responses

 Apart from using these skills, an interviewer also needs to


understand the styles of other fellow interviewers and act
in complete tandem with them. Lot of efforts would be
needed in establishing total communication with others,
which alone would ensure consensus and consequently a
good collective judgment.

Post Interview Formalities


Candidates selected by an interview panel may go for the next
interview or may be considered for appointment. The panel of
the final interview would record the comments and discuss
briefly with HRD regarding appointment, designation, salary etc.

XYZ HR-DEPTT / Confidential - Internal Use Only


16

All interviewers need to ensure that no promise of any kind is


given to the candidate regarding appointment or salary or
benefits are made to the candidate before a final decision is
taken. HRD would inform the candidate accordingly and set
time for salary negotiation. The reimbursement of travel
expenses would also be done. For frontline or junior staff
recruited, the Business Head would perform these functions
and inform HRD in the corporate office.

Salary Negotiations
The company would initiate salary negotiations only after
satisfying the suitability of the candidate. Although some
information would have been collected in the earlier stages
regarding salary, no promises would have been made.

HRD would negotiate salary with the individual keeping in mind,


salaries of comparable existing employees, salary band for the
level of the candidate, current salary of the candidate and
candidate’s expectations. HRD would finalise the salary if it is
acceptable to the candidate and above his current salary and it
is 10% of comparable employee. Any exception would be
discussed with the next appropriate level and the concerned
Functional/ Business Head.

No member of the company should make any promise to the


candidate solely with the intention of increasing the attraction of
the offer. Only the terms, which are agreed upon or sanctioned
by the appropriate authority, should be discussed with the
candidate. Any violation would be a serious lapse on the part of
the employee concerned, as it damages Company’s credibility.

In discussions with the candidates, company usually quotes the


gross salary, which includes all monetary elements including
reimbursement limits but does not include retrial benefits like
PF, gratuity etc and also indirect benefits such as insurance or
cash values of job and level based perks such as car, phone,
computer etc. However, during negotiation candidate shall be
explained all his eligibilities, direct or indirect, monetary or
otherwise. Along with the salary the date of joining would also
be discussed and agreed to.

XYZ HR-DEPTT / Confidential - Internal Use Only


17

On verbal acceptance of the offer, the candidate would be given


an offer letter by appropriate authority indicating the position,
gross salary, place of joining and acceptable date of joining.
The department concerned would also be informed. The
candidate would be asked to confirm acceptance of the offer.

9. Post Selection Formalities

The candidate is given an offer of employment after selection


subject to his joining by the agreed date. The company usually
allows two weeks for positions below Managers and up to one
month for others. In exceptional cases, a candidate may be
allowed an extension for joining if the concerned Functional
Head and HR Head agree. The offer becomes void after the
specified date if the candidate does not join.

During the period after offer and before joining, HRD would
coordinate with the concerned function and Administration for
required arrangements.

10. Concluding Note

While recruitment and selection processes remain an important


aspect of Human Resources Management, the overall
effectiveness would depend on the other core processes of
HRM such as training and development, performance
management and reward and punishment. Managers need to
pay constant attention to all these for making true the cliché '
people are the greatest assets of an organisation.'
