A recruiting source is effective if it helps a company meet its staffing goals for the position being filled. The firm’s staffing goals might include speed, cost, and candidate and new hire quality. Given the goal of hiring high-potential employees able to perform well and contribute to a business’s strategy execution, attending to the quality of the applicant pool is at least as important as attending to the quantity of applicants. It does not matter how many people apply to an organization if none of them meet the minimum hiring requirements. If the only applicant for a job opening is a perfect fit, accepts the job offer, and performs well, then the sourcing and hiring effort must be considered successful. Different sources of employees have different strengths (Phillips & Gully, 2015).
