Abstract:The requirements for e-selection, in order for that technology to be of practical use for Company T, have been investigated. With their main business in the secondments of personnel, especially in the technical sector, Company T has been expecting a shortage in the supply of candidates. This anticipated problem has served as the initial problem definition for this research. In order to cope with the expected situation, speed and accuracy have been reckoned to be of major importance. Using interviews, eleven problems have been identified across two topics, namely the use of web-based technologies, i.e. speed, and the use of other personal characteristics (O), i.e. accuracy. These eleven problems have been ranked using a focus group. Then, based on contemporary literature, solutions have been proposed to counter these problems. Combining these solutions has led to a design in which it has been proposed that valid psychological instruments should be applied and interpreted by skilled professionals. Furthermore, extensive knowledge sharing has been proposed to be vital when dealing with the large amount of tacit knowledge associated with the work at Company T. Lastly, the web-based technologies should support the core day-to-day work activities rather than be user-friendly or providing additional functionality.
