A report about the recruitment and selection for a particular job role in the sports and leisure industry.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

The assignment is to write a report about the recruitment and selection for a particular job role in the sports and leisure industry. The tasks are: to create a job advert and get my peers to act as applicants; go through the whole recruitment and selection process and at the end choosing the most suitable candidate out of those that applied; choosing the most suitable applicant and offering them the position; producing an induction and motivational programme for the chosen candidate. Sufficient research will be carried out to help the analysis of the recruitment and selection processes. There will be an evaluation judging the effectiveness of chosen approaches. The Recruitment Process Recruitment is the process of generating a pool of capable people to apply for employment to an organisation. The Recruitment Process is when a business looks for and finds a suitable person to fill a certain job position. This includes job description, job adverts, person specification, application forms, short listing, dealing with references, assessing candidates, deciding on the most suitable candidate and then informing those who did not get the job. Businesses need to avoid discrimination by sex, race, disability or age during the recruitment process so that they do not get sued. This allows them to make sure the best candidate gets the job. Firstly the business will need to draw up the Job Description. This usually includes the job title, location, information about the company, the job purpose, a detailed list of job requirements and skills, the salary and benefits, working hours, promotion prospects, who the employee will be responsible to and finally who the employee is responsible for. In order to draw up a suitable job description, the human resource manager interviews the current jobholder and the line manager so that they can do a job analysis. A job description is drawn up because it is important when carrying out appraisals, and it helps analyse jobs and training. ...read more.

Motivation Motivation is applying what drives a person, so that they will want to work productively for your company. Everyone is motivated differently. If a business had a motivated workforce then a businesses profitability will be boosted. Different factors of motivation will increase revenue and reduce costs. If an employee is motivated to increase their efforts then there will be higher productivity, if an employee is motivated to take pride in their work then there will be improved quality in work, if an employee is motivated to be loyal to company then there will be a reduced labour turnover and if an employee is committed to a company then it reduces absenteeism. There are many different theories about motivation. Here are two: 1. A. Maslow- Hierarchy of needs In 1954 an American psychologist Abraham Maslow had a theory about what motivated people in the workplace. He believed that all human beings had the same types of needs and this could be organised into a hierarchy of needs. This was his hierarchy: What people need What businesses can offer To achieve their full potential Self-fulfilment needs Training, challenges and opportunities to develop skills Gaining the respect of others; feeling valued; having confidence and self respect Self-esteem needs Reward for achievement promotion and status Being part of the group; giving and receiving affection and friendship Love and belonging needs Opportunities for teamwork; social facilities and positive work relations Security; absence of danger and freedom from anxiety Security needs High standards of healthy and safety; job security; absence of bullying Food, water, air, rest and activity Basic needs Decent pay to enable needs to be met; acceptable hours and conditions He said that firstly lower-level needs have to be met, but to avoid employees feeling irritated higher-level needs should also be met. If an employee feels irritated then they might be demotivated and nonchalant towards their work. 2. F. Herzberg- Two factor theory In the 1950's the American psychologist Fredrick Herzberg conducted research that asked about motivation. ...read more.

Conclusion

I did not break any legal considerations when I was recruiting, selecting, motivating and inducting. I carefully stayed within the equal pay act 1970 which states that there should be equal pay and conditions for people doing the same job, the sex discrimination act 1975 which states that employers can't discriminate between potential employees on the fact that they are male or female, the 1986 sex discrimination act which states that there must be a similar retirement date for both men and women, the race relation act 1968, 1976, 2000 which states that there can be no discrimination against people of different colours, race, ethnicity or national origins, and finally the disability discrimination act 1995 and 2004 states there must be no discrimination at work, and that the employer must provide a suitable workplace for the disabled employees. I also asked my potential employees the same interview questions so that there was no unfairness when it came to picking my final applicant. I also fitted equal opportunities into my application form. If the activity were repeated I would change my job description and person specification so that it would expand on what I have already done and it would help me be more selective about whom I interviewed and chose. If a different job role had been chosen that I had more knowledge about then I possible could have produced better human resources documentation and developed more into areas I didn't know. However this job role was a good choice and I think it was done to the best of my ability at the time. In hindsight, however, I know that I could have done better and expanded more on certain ideas I had. I am now more aware of recruitment and selection process, and it will help me to get a job in the future because I will have a better understanding of how an applicant in selected. ?? ?? ?? ??
