Business Studies - Recrutiement

Extracts from this document...


Recruitment My company (Argos) has people working in different areas which require different abilities and such. For example they have a person working as sales assistants, which doesn't require that much training and then they have a person working as Executive Managers, which requires previous experience as they need someone who can quickly take control. Each person will have to be evaluated, to see if they are suitable for the job. Once this is done, the recruitment process can start. The next thing to take into consideration is the job description, this is very important as without it, no-one would know what the job required doing.

Argos doesn't place adverts in newspapers, but rather it forwards it's vacancies towards agencies and it relies on people to visit its website. Once the closing date has passed, the selection process begins. The first stage of selection is to draw up a shortlist. During the short-listing stage people who will be involved in the selection process examine the applications and compare them to the job specification. The purpose of this is to decide who to interview and who to reject. Some of the organizations will 'grade' each application against each point, whilst other companies will give an overall grade. The applicants who meet the requirements of the job are then invited for an interview. Interviewing applicants is just really a conversation between the applicant and firms representatives to find out more about each other and to see if they are suitable for the job. ...read more.

Some firms use personality assessments for certain types of jobs. For example organisations that sell pensions and insurance might require individuals being considered for jobs in the sales force to complete a questionnaire about their attitudes and ambitions.
