Evaluation and Control


Evaluation and control is the last stage in the process of recruitment. In this process, the effectiveness and the validity of the process and methods are assessed. Recruitment is a costly process, hence it is important that the performance of the recruitment process is thoroughly evaluated.

The costs incurred in the recruitment process are to be evaluated and controlled effectively. These include the following −

  • Salaries to the Recruiters

  • Advertisements cost and other costs incurred in recruitment methods, i.e., agency fees.

  • Administrative expenses and Recruitment overheads

  • Overtime and Outstanding costs, while the vacancies remain unfilled

  • Cost incurred in recruiting suitable candidates for the final selection process

  • Time spent by the Management and the Professionals in preparing job description, job specifications, and conducting interviews.

Finally, the question that is to be asked is, whether the recruitment methods used are valid or not? And whether the recruitment process itself is effective or not? Statistical information on the costs incurred for the process of recruitment should be effective.
