. RESEARCH PLAN Formulating the objective of study. Process of data collection Usage of appropriate sampling plan. Analysis of data and interpretation. Reporting and findings. POPULATION - 110 SAMPE SIZE - 50 employees of various departments SAMPLING METHOD Random Sampling Method TOOLS FOR DATA ANALYSIS - Pie chart.

MAJOR FINDINGS: It has been great pleasure and a practical experience at the organization which helped to gain exposure and learning about the functioning. 1. The data banks are not properly maintained. 2. The dead resumes are never being destroyed. 3. Proper induction is not given to all the employees. It reserves to only a few levels. 4. Salary comparison is not justifies. Old employees are demoralized by getting less salary then new employee.

SUGGESTIONS 1. Other methods of selection like Psychometric and written tests should be introduced in the selection tests because these tests are vital in choosing the best candidate.

2. Cost of recruitment can be reduced by the help of e-recruiting and by employees referral as this practice of recruitment is considered the least in the company.

3. As company considers mostly experienced people for the job, a look on fresher should also be given because they can be recruited at a less salary offered to the

experienced and they can also give good results by giving proper training and guidance by the seniors in the company.

4. On campus recruitment should also be considered for recruitment of personnel from various colleges and business school.

CONCLUSION The study of recruitment and selection policies of BajajAllianzInsurance Company Shows a small but systematic procedure

Overall employees are satisfied with this recruitment process as they dont have to go through different test and this ease their tensions.

Employees are treated well and they are satisfied

All the employees gets the recreational facilities

PROJECT TITLE My project is STUDY OF RECRUITMENT AND SELECTION . This project was conducted at Jabalpur at Bajaj Allianz Insurance Company.

Scope of the Study: The scope of my study was limited to the recruitment process of executive level of employees for the Bajaj Allianz Insurance Company, location Jabalpur Limitation of the project

The limitations that I faced in the organization are:1. SHORT TIME SPAN 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.
