Recruitment and selection process: a case study of a Swedish and an Australian IT company

Abstract [en]

Most organizations are likely to agree that recruitment is one of the most important issues that an organization deals with. Recruitment planned in advance is about so much more than just filling of positions. Often it is also a tool to absorb new ideas and new thinking. An organization struggling with setbacks can for example be very successful if a person with new and good ideas starts to work there. Therefore it is very important to be aware of and control the different steps involved in the recruitment and selection process. This Bachelor’s Thesis investigates the differences and commonalities in the recruitment and selection process between a Swedish and an Australian IT company and compares their approach to the existing theories in this area. It also describes how the companies discuss when they are about to employ new labor and investigate in which areas their recruitment and selection process differs and why. The investigation was conducted through a case study where three persons responsible for new recruitment in different levels or different areas of responsibility in the organizational hierarchy, in each organization were interviewed. The Swedish company is located in three cities in the north of Sweden and the Australian company is located in Sydney, Australia. The conclusion is that the two investigated organizations use almost the same process when they are about to employ a new employee. Both organizations follow the different steps involved in the recruitment and selection process. The minor differences in the proceedings can be explained by the structural differences, i.e. size and time of existence. Their approach when recruiting follows the proceedings described in the theory very well.
