As an HR professional, how do you handle recruiting?
Recruiting is a very important function for all the companies I have worked for. I have set the selection parameters and used training skills to enhance the quality of candidates and hires that make a difference in the organization. I have worked closely with my recruitment team to make sure that recruitment is developed as a core process. Most of the recruitment was done by in-house recruiters as I believe they understand the values of the organization in addition to the required skills sets better than external search agencies. Currently, at Rsam, it is very important that every candidate considered for a position at Rsam aligns with our values in addition to being suitable for the role.
