An organization's capacity to achieve a competitive advantage through human resources begins with successful staffing. This subject evaluates the decision to “make” (train) or “buy” (recruit and select) employees for the organisation. We examine the strategic implications of staffing the organisation and then, using both theory and empirical research to assess the role and impact of recruitment, selection and training. Topics in the “buy” section of this subject include determining recruiting needs, identifying selection criteria, internal and external sourcing, evaluating recruiting effectiveness, interviewing and selection procedures and the application process.
