Recruitmentin the U.S Army

Recruitmentis an essential function of the management of human resources. Theprocess involves the activities of sourcing, selecting and assigningsuitable candidates for positions within an organization (Wilton,2016). It is an important function as it determines the type of staffhired by an institution which, in turn, determines its success. (Kim&amp Sung-Choon, 2013) Recruitment may prove to be a difficultprocess depending on the characteristics of the positions to befilled by the potential employees. As such, the human resourcedepartment is often faced with several challenges in the recruitmentprocess. These problems are dependent on the competency andcommitment of the recruiting staff as well as the appeal of thecompany to the recruits (Marie &amp Derous, 2016) (Stone &ampDeadrick, 2015). Moreover, the quality of the staff being sourced mayalso present challenges as it demands the development of appropriatestrategies (Richardson, 2009). This paper aims to explore recruitmentas a human resource issue while focusing on the recruitment issueswithin the army of the United States.

Background

Similarto other organizations, the United States army follows its owndistinct process of recruitment. This is so given that allinstitutions have its own distinct qualities and qualifications thatit requires potential recruits to possess (Stariņeca, 2015) (Bouton,2016). The process and procedures of recruitment that are employed bythe United States army, its advantages as well as the challengesexperienced during the process are described below.

Sourcing

Giventhe sensitivity of the tasks carried out by the U.S army, a lot ofregards is always given to the process of attracting potentialrecruits. This involves the use of a veteran staff as qualifiedrecruitment agents and organizations in order to identify potentialcandidates for the positions (Mankikar, 2012). As such, the use ofvarious media platforms and leveraging of the veteran networks areessential in the process of publicizing the job opportunities (Davis,2016). Social and brand tailored methods of creating an appeal forthe organization among the right candidates is also a useful tool inthe process of recruitment (Khalid &amp Tariq, 2015) (Van Hoye etal., 2016). This ensures that the candidates that move on to theselection stage of the military have developed passion as well as therequired competencies of serving in the army (Kraichy &amp Chapman,2013) (Catanzaro et al., 2010).

Screeningand selection

Multipletests and assessments are necessary for the recruitment process asthey ensure that only the best available candidates are hired(Nikolaou et al., 2012). In the United States army, psychologicaltests are often used to gauge the literacy of the candidates. Inaddition, there are numerous assessments which the recruits undergoto measure their psychological abilities. Furthermore, psychometrictests make use of special software to measure multiple skills arealso used in the selection process to filter candidates (Dattner,2016). This process is rigorous and facilitates the credibility andcompetency of the candidates selected to join the army (Whitelegg,2016) (Shackleton, 2015).

Advantagesof the US army recruitment systems

Eachinstitution possesses a unique recruitment system. The arrangementsare developed based on the competencies that are required of thepotential recruits as well as the job characteristics (HRCOUNCIL,2016). As such, US army employs an effective and well-developedrecruitment system which ensures that only the best candidates areselected into the army. The advantages of the recruitment system ofthe US army are described below.

Rigoroustraining

Aspart of the recruitment process, the United States army makes use ofspecialized physical and endurance assessments. The potentialrecruits are taken through a series of Mission Essential Fitnessexercises during which some of the participants are eliminated fromthe selection process (Heinrich et al., 2012). The training that isconducted during the selection process is usually meant to introducethe recruits to some of the activities that they will engage in oncethey are hired (Cook, 2015) (Spiering et al., 2012). This form ofrecruitment is effective as the human resource department is able toconduct the selection process on the basis of aptitude and ability asset by the organization (Chen &amp Hung 2010) (Jørgensen &ampBecker, 2015). The level of transparency also increases the fairnessand performance of the candidates during the process (Jacksch &ampKlehe, 2016).

Recruitmentbased on competency

Inthe case of internal recruitment, individual may be selected from theexisting employees of the institution (Maurer, 2016). In this case,potential candidates that are to be hired into new positions areselected on the basis of competency (Shafique, 2012). This type ofrecruitment is very common in the U.S army, especially duringpromotions. As such, making use of the candidate’s professionalexperience as the standards of assessment through the selection andscreening process is an efficient practice as it produces bona fideand validated candidates (Russell, 2016)). Given the sensitivity ofthe positions, this form of recruitment evidences a well-articulatedand effective recruitment system.

Challengesof the recruitment process of US army

Thereare several challenges that the recruitment system of the UnitedStates army faces during the process of hiring. First, given therigorous nature of the recruitment system employed by the army,sustaining such a systems require massive investments of both timeand effort. More so, the system requires constant review and updatein order to reflect the current requirements. As such, constant jobanalysis is mandatory so as to modify the knowledge, abilities,skills as well as other characteristics that are required to beattained by the potential recruits (Bal et al., 2015).

Anothermajor challenge faced by the army during the recruitment process isthe shortage of people with the high-tech abilities that it requiresfor the future (Alexander, 2016). As a result, the army is unable torecruit a large number of adequately skilled candidates to the army.Statistics suggest that over half of those that are eligible to jointhe army are unable to pass the examination entry while the otherhalf fail to prove their competency in terms of physical fitness andcharacter standards that have been set by the institution. Thispossess serious implications on the army’s recruit system as theyare unable to acquire the best available personnel to fill theposition given the sensitive nature of the institution.

Conclusion

Inconclusion, it is evident that the importance of the recruitmentfunction in human resource management cannot be undermined. This isbecause the process determines the quality of staff that is hired tofill the available positions within the organization (Johnston,2016). Owing to this, institutions such as the U.S army havedeveloped efficient and well-articulated recruitment systems to aidin this process. It makes use of various media platforms to sourcefor potential recruits and thereafter conducts a series assessmentsand multiple tests, both physical and psychological, in order toidentify the best candidates to join the army. Such thoroughrecruitment strategies ensure that the institution hires theindividuals based on their aptitudes in performance rather thancredentials alone.
