This study sought to look at the perceptions of human resource managers on costs and benefits associated with e-recruitment strategy among state corporations in Kenya. The costs of e-recruitment were addressed as well as the benefits of e-recruitment and finally looked at which of the two components outweighs the other. Many researches especially those done in Kenya touching on e-recruitment have only looked at the application of erecruitment however this study sought to look at perceived costs and benefits associated with e-recruitment a gap which had not been addressed before. The research study was a case study involving state corporations in Kenya. This study used systematic sampling where the researcher chooses every third corporation from the list of 166 state corporations in Kenya. The questionnaire was administered to the human resource managers in the sampled corporations. Data obtained was then analyzed using SPSS and presented using descriptive statistics. These findings will imply that state corporations in Kenya will save the taxpayer a lot money associated with other forms of recruitment in addition to enabling the state corporations benchmark level of service delivery and efficiency in the private sector. Equally the findings will assist in dealing with e-recruitment as a standalone component linked to other aspects of recruitment. The study concluded that e-recruitment strategy is steadfastly becoming embraced by the Human resource component within organisations particularly the state corporations, while at the same time it will save costs and benefit taxpayer in efficiency and service delivery. The research came up with recommendations that there is need for the e-recruitment strategy to be treated not only as a stand-alone human resource tool but should be integrated into overall recruiting and selection strategy that includes, among other things, sophisticated behavioral and skills assessment, interviewing, research, and additional means of identifying needs and sourcing candidates.
