                                               Summary

Scope:
The scope of my study is to observe the degree of satisfaction levels of the employer as well as
the employees as per my sample size towards the process of Recruitment and Selection
Techniques adopted by the company. I will also study the deviations if any, towards this effect
that I will be experiencing in my research. Apart from getting an idea of the techniques and
methods in the recruitment procedures I will take a close look at the insight of corporate
culture prevailing out there in the organization. This would not only help me to aquanaut with
the corporate environment but it would also enable me to get a close look at the various levels
authority responsibility relationship prevailing in the organization. Also the stipulated time for
the project is insufficient to undergo an exhaustive study about the topic assigned and
moreover the scope of the topic (Recruitment and Selection) is wide enough, so it is difficult to
cover the entire topic within the stipulated time, but still whatever I could do towards this
effect, I will do that.

Limitations:
Although the limitations that I faced in the organizations is the absence of Trade Unions,
otherwise which could have help me in understanding the industrial relations in a
comprehensive manner. Secondly, the limitation that I have is the scope of collection of sample
size which was confined to only one department, which would have other wise made my study
and observations in an effective manner. Thirdly, the stipulated time for the project is
insufficient to undergo an exhaustive study about the topic assigned and moreover the scope of
the topic (Recruitment and Selection) is wide enough, so it is difficult to cover the entire topic
within the stipulated time, but still whatever I could do towards this effect, I have done that.

Conclusions:
1. From the analysis it is clear that more than 91% of the employees are working in the
    company, for a period of less than 3 years. Only 8.33% of the employees are working in the
    company having completed more than 3 years. So it is evident that the employees of the
    Hughes Software Systems are much younger. It indicates the recent trend of recruiting fresh
    candidates by the organization.
2. I have given various options for joining of the candidates in the organization in the
    questionnaire. Also I got more options from the employees while interacting with them.
    Most of the employees (28%) have mentioned the salary package as a reason for joining the
    organization. 16% of the employees have mentioned or pointed it out the working
   environment as the reason for joining the organization. 17% talked about the reputation of
   company and 23% mentioned about career growth opportunity. So I can say salary package
   and career growth opportunity are the more attractive to the employees.
3. From the analysis of recruitment and selection procedure it is clear that for recruiting
   employees Hughes Software Systems mainly conduct written examination followed by
   interview. Written exam is mandatory for mainly all types of recruitment. For selection of
   the technical candidates they have to go through three mandatory interviews, out of which
   two are technical interviews and one is the interview with the Human Resource head.

Recommendations
1. After looking and analyzing all the criteria in the organization, I have analyzed that the
   company lacks in job security. Job security forms an integral part of an employee’s
   motivation to lend full dedication to his services to the organization.
2. As a result of a constant threat to ones position in the organization, an undercurrent of
   mutiny was prevalent amongst the employees I came across. The disdain was more
   amongst the entry level executives. In order to get full support of the lower level staff
   policies should be devised to sense such signals.
