INTRODUCTION

Recruitment is understood as a process searching and obtaining a pool


potential candidate with the desired knowledge, skills, and experience to
allow an organization to select the most appropriate people to fill the job
vacancies against defined positions descriptions and specification. Employing
the right person in organization is important however choosing an applicant
to hire may be hard because there are some recruitment specialists that look
into consideration on the gender of a person.
We, the researchers were inspired to conduct this study knowing that
individual carries the baggage of our personal values, experience, beliefs,
and perceptions with us everywhere. It is also inevitable for us to meet
diverse people inside or outside the workplace. As students we wondered
how to handle this kind of situation not only in the workplace but in our
school as well. By this study, we can acquire new ideas and broaden our
knowledge regarding on this matter that will help us to be more informed
and to be able to apply these new acquired ideas when being faced with the
situation in the near future.
Gender sensitivity is the way service providers treat male, female,
lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender applicants in service delivery facilities
and thus affects applicants willingness to seek services, continue to use

services, and carry out the health behaviors advocated by the services. We,
the researcher want to know if who among the diverse and non-diverse
gender people has a greater chance to be hired in an organization, also we
want to be inform if the gender of an individual affects or considered as a
barrier to be hired. To know whether business processing outsourcing
industries develop policy statement, implement an appropriate equal
opportunities program within their organization and how BPO industry
attracts possible applicants knowing that there is a diversity in gender in an
organization, also to know how they select applicants with different gender
preferences.
BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
In the past, men and women are treated differently in an organization.
Mostly men has a greater chance to get hired and has more opportunity to
occupy higher position in a workplace because they are the one who has
given a chance to finish their study, while women suffered a hard time to find
a work and to be employed because of lack of access to higher
education that lead to limited, low-paid and poor status occupations for most
of the 19th and 20th centuries, or earned less pay than men for doing the
same work. One of the reasons of inequality of men and women is lack of
political and economic power of women, which the political parts are played
mostly by male. This is caused by the factor that usually men have better
financial opportunities, which let them realized their supremacy in politics.

Consequently, women possess less economic power, as major influential


people in global economies are male.
Not only women suffer inequality in workplace as today issue there is a
widespread discrimination to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender to be
hired in an organization. The LGBT community remains as one of the
country's minority sectors today. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender
people often face disadvantages in getting hired for jobs, because certain
employment sectors are perceived to be in difficult workplace with LGBT, one
of the reason is that they are not open on workplace diversity or the variety
of differences between people encompasses race, gender, ethnic group, age,
personality, and sexual orientation. This usually result hard time for
individual with different sexual orientation to be employed in a certain
organization. However, some are given an opportunity to be hired but they
need to disclose their sexual orientation or gender identity in a particular
work to be able to suit in organizations policy which also lead to skillful LGBT
employees leave their workplaces because they dont feel welcome.
THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK

Equal opportunity Theory, is a stipulation that all people should be


treated similarly, unhampered by artificial barriers or prejudices or
preferences, except when particular distinctions can be explicitly justified.
The aim according to this often complex and contested concept is that

important jobs should go to those most qualified persons most likely to


perform ably in a given task and not go to persons for arbitrary or irrelevant
reasons, such as circumstances of birth, upbringing, having wellconnected relatives or friends, religion, sex, ethnicity, race, caste, or
involuntary personal attributes such as disability, age, gender, or sexual
orientation. Chances for advancement should be open to everybody
interested such that they have an equal chance to compete within the
framework of goals and the structure of rules established. The idea is to
remove arbitrariness from the selection process and base it on some preagreed basis of fairness, with the assessment process being related to the
type of position, and emphasizing procedural and legal means. Individuals
should succeed or fail based on their own efforts and not extraneous
circumstances such as having well-connected parents. It is opposed
to nepotism and plays a role in whether a social structure is seen as
legitimate.
