Factors Affecting Recruitment

2. External factors

Internal factors


Size: The organizational size is an influencing factor. Larger organizations find recruitment less problematic than smaller size units.

Policy: The policy of recruitment by the organization, whether recruitment is from internal source (from own employees) or from external sources also affect the recruitment process. Generally, recruiting through internal sourcing is preferred in view of cost consideration, familiarity and in easily finding the most suitable one.

Image: Image of the organization is another internal factor influencing recruitment. Managerial actions like good public relations, rendering public services like building roads, public parks, hospitals and schools help to earn a good image or goodwill for the organization.

Image of jobs: Better remuneration and working conditions are considered as the characteristics of good image of a job. Besides, promotion and career development programmes of the organization also attract potential candidates.

External factors


Demographic factors: Demographic factors such as sex, age, literacy, economic status etc, have influence on recruitment process.

Labour markets: Labour market conditions, that is, supply labour is of particular importance in affecting recruitment process. If the demand for a specific skill requirements is high relative to its supply, recruiting employees will involve more efforts. On the contrary, if supply is more than demand for particular skill, recruitment will be relatively easier.

Unemployment situation: The rate of unemployment is yet another external factor having its influence on the recruitment process. When the unemployment rate in a given area is high, the recruitment process tends to be simpler.

Labour laws: There are several labour laws and regulations passed by the central and state Governments that govern different types of employment. These cover, working conditions, compensation, retirement benefits and safety and health of employees in industrial undertakings. Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Act, 1986, for example prohibits employment of children in certain employments. So also, several other acts such as Employment Exchange (Compulsory Notification of Vacancies) Act, 1959, the Apprentice Act 1961; the Factories Act, 1948 and the Mines Act 1952 have bearing on recruitments.
