An employee recruitment screening system is a system that processes the application of applicants so as to determine eligible candidates for employment. Screening and recruitment of employees forms a core part of the central activities underlying human resource management. It forms an important part of the work of human resource managers – or designated specialists within work organizations. It has an important role to play in ensuring worker performance and positive organizational outcomes. It is often claimed that selection of workers occurs not just to replace departing employees or add to a workforce but rather to put in place workers who can perform at a high level and demonstrate commitment. Recruitment is important for organizations since it performs the essential function of drawing an important resource, human capital, into the organization. It has a strategic aim as it focuses on the need to attract high-quality people in order to gain a competitive advantage. Recruiting people with the right abilities reinforces the organizational goals. E-recruitment is the use of the internet to attract potential employees to an organization, and can include the use of an organization’s own corporate website as well as the use of commercial job boards (Parry, 2009).

Every organization is made up of employees, and before employees are recruited, information pertaining to them is obtained, screened to determine their qualification for employment into a given position. For every position, there are certain skills and qualifications needed. The performance of the individual is a function of employee ability, motivation and level of education. Screening is a fundamental part of Human Resource Management (HRM) which is a term that has been in use for over two decades now and it is a unit with the responsibility of short-listing eligible applicants to become staffs of a given firm. It was previously referred to as personnel administration and it is a vital part of every organization. Every organization seeks to employ the most suitable staff in order to move the organization to the next level or to beat-up the ever increasing competition in the business world. The problem is how to get the appropriate person for a particular post or job considering the large number of people that will apply for a particular job offer. Screening makes it possible for the personnel management unit to select the best applicants from a large pool of applications.
