Employing Suitable People to Communicate Information

Introduction

EMPLOYING SUITABLE PEOPLE TO COMMUNICATE INFORMATION Task 1 Sainsbury's advertise their positions either online or in store, but you can only apply for them online. When applying for Sainsbury's, you must first fill out an online application form and answer the assessment questions. Once submitted, and you are successful, they will then contact you either by telephone or email inviting you to an individual interview and a group interview where you and other people applying for positions will work on a group activity to see how well you can communicate and get along with others. Then, if you are successful they will offer you the position and invite you to an induction day. Then you will be trained on the department they have designated you. When you first start you are on a 6 month probation period to find out if you are right for the position and to see how well you are settling down in the job. ...read more.

Middle

The only difference between them is that during the interview Sainsbury's include a group activity, which involve other applicants, whereas KFC have a 30 minute work sample where you get to meet some of the team. Out of the two businesses I would prefer to apply to Sainsbury's because of the way they have set up there online recruiting. They make it easier to find vacancies in your local area and list the hours that are available and give you more information about the position you intend to apply for. Plus, there are many different positions to choose from as not only have you got shelf stacking and checkouts, you've also got jobs behind the scenes like administration. Where as with KFC you've got kitchen work and till work. The retention process at Sainsbury's is that they offer many different types of benefits for employees, but they will only come into affect after the 6 month probation period and these are: * Colleague discount card - 10% for most of the year with occasional increase up to 15% * Annual Bonus Scheme - encourages the staff to meet targets throughout the year. ...read more.

Conclusion

* Career breaks - allows eligible employees to have a maximum of a year off to pursue personal development. * Sainsbury's social association - this allows discounts for members on many outings and leisure activities that have been organised, and also entitles exclusive leisure discounts for a wide range of services. * Shining star incentive programme - this recognises workers who do a great job both working as individuals and as part of a team and is rewarded with Sainsbury's vouchers. * Award for long service - celebrates and recognises colleagues who have worked 5, 10, 15, 25 and 40 years of services. After looking at the retention process for Sainsbury's I would still choose to apply to them as they offer many different benefits and rewards once you have past the probation period. They have options to suit everyone for example the discount card, not only does this benefit Sainsbury's by encouraging their workers to shop their but it gives great saving to the staff, especially when combined with other offers in store. ?? ?? ?? ??
