Finding and hiring the right person for any job requires cooperation between HR and department managers, creating up-to-do job descriptions, promoting the position in the right places, and using effective, compliant selection methods to ensure the person can do the work and will fit in with the people and environment. These days, branding your company as a great place to work and using various social media platforms can assist you in finding and attracting the best person for the job.
