Welcome to the Recruitment, Selection & Hiring IQRM!

The recruitment, selection, and hiring process is fertile ground for employment-related claims, however laws, court decisions, and government enforcement have evolved to the point where virtually every facet of the recruitment, selection, and hiring process is examined and scrutinized. Your organization’s legal exposure and potential liabilities occur whenever any of its recruitment, selection, and hiring practices eliminate or deny employment opportunities to an individual in a protected category; whenever selection decisions are based upon impermissible criteria; whenever affirmative action requirements are not met; or, when the failure to use hiring due diligence results in a claim of negligent hiring.  

This IQRM reviews keys aspects of your organization’s recruitment, selection, and hiring process.  Click below to begin our 20 statement survey to gain your organization’s IQRM Effectiveness Risk Audit Score as relates to recruitment, selection, and hiring.
