Talent management, including talent selection, is Human Resource’s job, right? Yes, and no. Yes, HR should be involved in the process. But employees in other departments also need a say. If only HR and the hiring manager chooses new hires, then the right employees probably aren’t being hired, because it’s difficult for just two people to see the whole picture and understand what is required for the job. And if HR is removed from the process, talent selection becomes less fair and consistent.
