Olatunji Eniola Sule, Ugoji I. Elizabeth


The purpose of this study is to examine the processes through which personnel are recruited into organisation and the impacts of the personnel recruitment on the organisational development. Six research questions and two hypotheses were postulated to find solutions to the problems of the study. One hundred and fifty senior personnel formed the sample size from six organisations. A self-designed instrument labeled Personnel Recruitment Process Impact Questionnaire (PEREPRIQ) containing five sections was used in the collection of data. The findings of the study revealed certain recruitment procedures adopted in organisations. It also revealed that the recruitment procedures used in the organisation influence personnel behaviour and performance to a large extent. It further established those factors militating against recruitment processes in organisations as well as its consequences on the personnel and organisational development. Based on the findings, the following recommendations were proffered that recruitment processes and procedures must be developed which all applicants must pass through; that all applicants must all be treated equally, and that what constitute qualification and merit must be well spelt out to include applicant ability to “deliver” and not just ‘paper’ qualification.
