From the Paper:

"The Human Resource Department is mandated to choosing the right candidate for the required job position and ensures that his or her skills match accordingly. Recruitment is a very crucial exercise and important role which is time expensive and time consuming. Careful recruitment eliminates additional selection of employees who perform poorly to the existing staff. Filling of vacant posts in a hurry by way of using interview in isolation can be very detrimental to the Company resulting in high employee turnover and loss of money. Hiring new employees consists of costs such as training and development and advertising costs."
