Read the following case and answer relevant questions:
During the early 2000 s, a hotel chain in Egypt instituted a recruiting plan based on REFERALS from current employees. This system worked, primarily because the operation had strong, competent staff during that period. However, problems began to develop in mid 2006 as fewer and fewer people applied to fill the increasing number of position at the hotel.
Despite a shrinking pool of applications for an expanding number of jobs , the human resources manager continued to rely on the employee referral system for his labor supply .
He justified this decision by saying "Even though fewer employees are available, the employee referral method brings employees into our chain who know about our work and our expectations. That s because these people have friends working here. In the long run, this knowledge will help us keep training and orientation cost down"
Unfortunately, the managers program is failing miserably. The hotel is desperately

You are asked to prepare a recruitment plan that taps labor supplies that your chain has failed to develop over the past several years.
Your first problem, however, is convincing the human resources director of the need for such a recruitment program.
What arguments can you use to convince the human resources director of the need to establish new recruiting methods and strategies?
