In an era of dynamic change due to rapid technological advancement and globalisation, managers and recruiters have to react proactively as there is no reason to expect that recruiting will be exempted from this rapid change. This paper focuses on the recruitment policies that are practiced by four multinational companies operating in Malaysia. It is hypothesised that these companies would have adopted contemporary recruitment practices that are aligned with global trends. The objective of this research is to analyse how these companies are responding to these international trends. It provides an account of current recruitment policies practiced in the multinational companies in Malaysia and to identify the global recruitment trends adopted by these companies. It hopes to update knowledge on current best recruitment practices that local companies could emulate. The study is designed to help HR professionals within large enterprises to understand best recruitment practices that can be applied in their organisations in order to attain employer of choice status.
