An organization or institution functioning, majorly depends on the workforce it appoints. The employees are an integral part of the organization and in a way represent or are the BRAND AMBASSADOR’s of the organization. Employees are needed not only to boost up the productivity of the firm but also to maintain the standard and quality of the institution. The ideas and the principles of a company can only be successfully implemented if zealous and hardworking workers are appointed whose thinking is in the line with the company’s vision. That is why it is very important to match the ideologies of both the parties i.e an Employer and an Employee.
Hiring Managers face difficulties to find the right candidate for the right job. The situation is applicable to other side of the fence also, as a candidate also finds it difficult to find a work place he/she desires. Below are some of the reasons which attribute to above situation:-
Firstly, In this digital world, for a single position, employers receive n number of applications, however most of them are irrelevant. To choose the right candidate from large number of applications has really become a mammoth task for the companies. That is why sometimes they are compelled to follow the short cut way to find the employees. They tend to pick up the Cheapest or the Earliest person coming their way.
Secondly, in many instances, the employers are reluctant to recruit New/fresh employees into their firms. Due to this, stagnation occurs inside the company and the productivity curve is affected. The Fresh incumbents get frustrated as there are very few Pickers for them.
Thirdly, the companies face serious challenges to find/replace employees holding Key Positions in the Company. The institution which excels in their field is very punctilious about their Strategy Makers because the master plans of the strategies are conceived by them. The Innovators / Strategist are the feather of the institution’s cap.
Fourthly, shortage of funds has become serious issue for affording the pertinent employee. Due to this insufficiency, the companies have to compromise with their desire and capabilities. On the other hand from the employee’s view point, it is quite natural about the inclination to higher pay packages. Due to this a major disparity arises between the companies which can afford higher salaries and who cannot.
Although there are several hurdles with reference to appointing the right candidate for the right post, however the task is not unattainable. The Human Resource department should think through before offering any position to a candidate. The right candidate for the right job can be achieved through skilful recruiters, who can survey the markets and the necessities with their experiences and make the best out of their employees. The technology friendly atmosphere, adequate salaries helps to nourish the employees and inspire them to achieve the desired goal.
