FAILING YET AGAIN TO IMPRESS: RECRUITMENT UTILITY ANALYSIS - AN INNOVATION IMPLEMENTATION

Abstract [en]

The research area of recruitment utility analysis (RUA) models has

been somewhat unexplored for decades, and has earlier been reduced

to simplified mathematic formulas measuring only dollar term value.

The need for more dynamic models and theories surrounding the area

has been voiced numerous times, yet little has been done. The purpose

of this study was to highlight this need to encourage to further

research, and to examine the managerial perspective on RUA from a

semi explorative perspective. Eight interviews were conducted where

the managers received questions concerning the recruitment process

and the method used to conduct RUA. The results of this study

indicate somewhat unimpressed attitudes toward the added value of

conducting RUA. The reasons for not conducting

RUA were found to be due to time constraint, lack of skills and

managerial support. The majority of the RUA was found to be reactive

and based on gut feeling implying a need for proactive RUA hence

ensuring the value of the recruitment process.
