Abstract
This study investigates the staff selection process and identifies particular criteria influencing the personnel selection methods. Such methods of personnel selection as screening, interview, questionnaire, lie detector, biographical method, assessment center and reference checks are analyzed. This empirical research is based on a sample of 40 companies of different business areas from St. Petersburg, Russia. The authors use regression models for testing several hypothesis regarding the relation between selection methods and the factors such as company's size, age, business area, job complexity or the number of required skills, and the amount of required training. The authors found that the more skills are required for a job position, the higher the degree of use of personnel selection methods by the companies. Moreover, the authors observe that business area influence the degree of use of selection methods. In particular, construction companies use phone interviews more intensive than companies of other business areas do. Financial companies use lie detector more frequently than others do; manufacturing companies – biographical methods and reference checks. Finally, large companies use more phone interviews, personality test, questionnaire and lie detector compared to small companies. At the same time, authors did not reveal the relation between length of formal adaptation period and the degree of use of personnel selection methods.
