When you have negotiated with shortlisted candidates and selected the best choice, then you should ask the management’s approval for the recruitment of the candidate.

It should be done against the department’s requisition of manpower.

The approval must be in written form and the copies should be circulated to the HR department as well as the department which put on the requisition.

12. Opening Employee Personal File

  • Application of the employee
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Training Details
  • Copies of certificates

An offer letter must include –

  • Job Title
  • Job Description
  • Mention of the probationary period and permanency terms
  • Compensation Package and Breakdown of the package
  • Authorization signature


You should remember that an offer letter is not an employment contract. And it should be printed on the company pad, not a white paper.

14. Joining Documents

This is the set of documents an employee has to submit once he/she accepts the offer letter for the job and joins the work. Depending on the nature of the documents, they can be obtained ASAP or given a period to the employee for obtaining from the source. Following is a list of documents an employee may need to submit while joining-

  • Legal Photo ID – Possible the National Identity Card/Social Security Number/Passport or Birth Certificate
  • Academic Certificate – Copies of all the educational certificates an employee has obtained and mentioned on the job application.
  • Job Experience Certificate – Clearance or experience certificate for working at the previous organizations.
  • Nominee Form – In case of life-threatening problems, the nominee who will be eligible to receive the assets of the employee should be mentioned on the form
  • Other details – Training certificates, extracurricular achievement certificates, other details etc

15. Medical Tests

An employee should be tested for any chronic illness or possible health problems. If he/she is fit for the job, then he/she must be recruited.

Medical tests and health certificates should be obtained from the new recruit at this stage.

16. References/Background Checking

At this stage, the submitted documents should be verified by the HR department –

  • You should cross-check the educational background with the institutions
  • For verifying information of past recruitment and achievement, you can contact the previous organization’s HR department
  • For other documents, you can contact the necessary institutions
  • Check the references directly from the provided information

17. Resignation acceptance letter

A resignation acceptance letter from the previous organization is very important for the recruitment and selection process. It is proof that the recruit has left his/her previous job fully and accepted the new position accordingly.

Recruitment & Selection Process

18. Appointment Letter & Job Description (JD)

An appointment letter or employment contract is the legitimate and legal contract between the two parties – the recruiter organization and the recruit.

An appointment letter must consist of all the necessary details an employee needs to know about the job and the tenure. It also includes the permanent employee compensation package, the gratuity, bonus, incentives, and everything else.

Job Description consists of what the organization expects from the employee to achieve organizational goals and objectives.

After delivering the appointment letter and JD, you should take acknowledgment from the employee of receiving it with a signature.

After that, you can proceed to the next step.

19. Ensuring Logistics Supports

Right at this point, you should ensure that the employee receives the best logistics support from the organization so that he/she can perform his/her work well and achieve company objectives without hindrance. Following are the set of logistics you may need to offer an employee.

  • Work Station – Where the employee will work, his/her seat
  • Mobile – If offered by the company, if necessary for the job
  • PABX – Landline phone for contacting regarding the job
  • PC – For executing duties like report writing, presentation preparation, documents preparation etc
  • Stationery – To execute various duties regarding documentation and other purposes
  • Email ID – All employee must have their email ID for internal communication so that the company information might not become personal

20. ID Card & Business Cards Preparing

After you have taken care of the logistics support for the new employee, you should provide the employee with a company ID Card as well as Business Cards.

The identity card from the company is a very important document. It identifies the employee as part of the organization.

So, you should keep a received copy signed by the employee for the identity card. It is very important that the employee must not lose his/her identity card in any case.

On the other hand, business cards also represent the company to external people. So they should bear the standard of the company at great length.

For your reference, a business card should bear company resemblance, ideals, and morals, more than unnecessary ornamental designs.

Above mentioned parts were the second parts of steps to a successful recruitment & selection process. But it is to mention that, not all points of a step can be applied to all the employees. They may vary from organization to organization depending on the cultures and norms. You should look into that.

The last parts of the recruitment & selection process will be described in the PART C blog,
