// Recruitment and selection are one of the most significant Human Resource Management functions that predominantly focuses on identifying the organizations needs to employ the right person at the right place. This function plays a vital role in enhancing growth and profitability of the organizations. In the following section, we are going to understand the various internal and external challenges faced by health care organizations in managing their recruitment and selection process efficiently. Further, the impact of such challenges is also discussed.//
External and Internal Challenges
The selection and recruitment process face potential difficulties that are essentially required to be addressed by human resource managers by formulating suitable strategies for dealing with such challenges. The predominant issue behind human resource management challenges, the emerging environment trends in the organization and formulation of policies and procedures for dealing with such problems. The dynamic nature of external and internal environment constitutes a variety of human resource management challenges. The environmental challenges are related with factors that exist in the external environment of the organizations thus, influence their efficient management. The external environmental factors are not within the control of organizations management. The major external challenges faced by health care organizations are mentioned below:
l Ethical challenges
l Challenges related with Globalization
l Legal challenges
l Technological challenges
l Moral challenges
Ethical challenges faced by health care organizations are related with the issues faced by such organizations while making contribution for welfare and development of the society, as a part of their social responsibility. The human resource department of the organizations is required to develop a code of conduct, as well as, code of ethics principles that provide a framework for regulating behavior of their employees. In this regard, the challenge is to formulate such strategies that are favorable for existing as well as for prospective employees, at the same time make efforts for welfare of the society. With globalization, the health care organizations are facing severe competition that has resulted in laying off the effective human resources of these organizations. The human resource (HR) department faces issues in integrating global culture with their organizational culture (Cooper, Robertson & Tinline, 2003).
Challenges due to laws and regulations in the country are another challenge that affects the efficiency of organizations operating in the health care industry. There are certain labor laws developed by the government for employees benefit. Some of such laws are not within the interests of the organizations so human resource management faces issues in implementing such laws within their organization. Further, if the organizations do not comply with such laws, penalties are imposed by the government authorities. The technological changes lead to development of innovative methods that dominate the older ones, makes them obsolete (Darwish, 2013).Therefore, HR managers are required to assure changes in skills and expertise of employees either by recruiting and selecting through appropriate sources or providing training for such purpose to existing employees, for incorporating updated technologies in the organizations management for enhancing the organizations productivity as a whole. In addition to these, HR department has to ensure that their organizational culture complies with moral values while working for attaining the common organizational goal (Swart et al., 2012).
The internal challenges related to the factors that are within the organization and are linked to environmental challenges. Internal challenges can be controlled by the organizations management to some extent do that their impact on recruitment and selection process is minimized. The internal challenges affecting the efficiency of the recruitment and selection process of the health care organizations include, competitive position and flexibility; organizational restructuring, self-managed teams (such as employees union) and development of suitable organizational culture to increase productivity of employees (Darwish, 2009).
If suitable strategies are not formulated to overcome the challenges we have discussed above, they will negatively influence the performance of health care organizations such as:
l Decreased productivity: If the challenges faced by human resource management in managing selection and recruitment process effectively are not addressed, the employees productivity might decline, as if their interest is not aligned with the organizational goals due to changes in the internal and external environment of their organization, they will become unproductive; less engaged in their job and responsibilities thus, resulting in downfall of the organizations.

l Employees Turnover: Another negative ...
