Ethiopia Bezaneh, HR Director, spent a month visiting colleges and churches, appearing on radio and television shows, and using other means to market CBE’s recruiting and employment efforts. All of these activities were done to inform applicants about the numerous jobs at CBE and the month-long time frame for application.

To make its recruiting system effective in screening the large number of applicants, CBE established an online-only application process on a special website. As part of its recruiting efforts, CBE and the Federal Ministry of Work and Social Affairs agency worked together. One of the agency activities was to make computers available at a local technical college, libraries, and other locations for those persons without home-based Internet. Having the online system allowed CBE’s HR staff to move quickly to identify those applicants who matched available jobs. The use of this system by HR recruiters and managers doing the hiring made the selection process more efficient.

To aid in the selection of employees, recruiting software was used to sort applicants into electronic “buckets,” divided by work experiences and education. Then an eight-step process was established to let applicants obtain a realistic job preview of working at Commercial Bank of Ethiopia. These recruiting actions resulted in the hiring of more than 500 new employees within six months.
