This paper aims to introduce the concept of 360° recruitment, which is a systematic, practical and holistic recruitment process that provides a reliable employee-selection structure for an organization of any size.


The recruitment process, which begins with establishing the correct selection criteria, provides a 360° view of a candidate by combining assessments, job interviews, reference checks and job previews.


Hiring the right employees is critical for the growth and success of an organization. However, many companies do not have an effective and reliable recruitment process that enables them to hire top-notch talent who are highly compatible with the firm. The 360° recruiting process is a practical technique that enables organizations to evaluate job applicants from multiple angles while reducing the uncertainty and the biases that are inherent in a typical recruiting process.


The 360° recruitment process is comprehensive yet practical and can be used by an organization of any size. The technique, if properly administered, will optimize recruiting and ensure that qualified and compatible employees are hired into the organization.
