In the global war for talent, companies are seeking out and securing relevant skills and people with potential any way they can. In the South African context, Employment Equity and Labour Relations legislation render the field of recruitment and selection even more complex. A contested selection process or decision where the CCMA rules in favour of the aggrieved party can cost a company dearly. In addition, the application of a poor recruitment and selection process can be equally costly in terms of inappropriate person-job-organisation fit selection decisions.
