Recruitment - the first step to success

An organization cannot build a good team of working professionals without focus on human resources. One of the major responsibilities in any organization is the recruitment and training of people. All organizations need to have a plan for hiring the right candidate for the job. It starts with designing the criteria best suitable for a specific job description.
