There is no best way to hire new employees – a strategy that works for one organization may not be best suited to another. Hiring practices and strategies vary based on position, location, resources, and industry. The purpose of this assignment is for you to begin researching and analyzing the concept of sourcing, selecting, and hiring new employees. This assignment will also provide a vehicle for you to review the process in an organization with which you are familiar, thereby building a foundation from which you can learn and assess.
