Personnel Selection In Health Sector With EVAMIX and TODIM Methods

1.390 341


Nowadays human is the most important factor that affects the success of production and service companies. Different jobs and positions exist within the structure of the companies require different knowledge, talent and personality characteristics. In this manner operating efficiently and productively is affected by the selection of proper personnel to these jobs and positions. In the personnel selection process there are many criteria that the companies consider. These types of problems may be solved by Multi Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) methods. In this study the nurse selection problem of a private hospital is handled and this problem is solved by EVAMIX (EVAluation of MIXed Data) and TODIM (Iterative Multi Criteria Decision Making) methods which are MCDM methods. At the end of the study ranking order of nurse alternatives is provided to the hospital management after performing necessary operations and results are compared.
