P1 Unit 4: effective people, communication and information Application form analysis Introduction I will be describing the recruitment and retention process and documentation process in McDonalds. I will be analysing the process in which McDonalds recruit staff into the business. I will also be identifying the ways that McDonald holds onto their staff so that the staff can become trusted loyal people toward the company. I will also be explaining all 5 different processes which are: recruitment planning, skills auditing, evaluating sources, method of application and I will be making a flowchart of all these process, In order to assist me when I want to create my own application form. Recruitment planning I will understand the process in which people go through fill in a job vacancy before it has been occurred. Recruitment Planning is used to find out how many workers and what types of workers are required. McDonalds will then plan what vacancies exist as they might have left due to the fact that: sickness absence, Maternity cover, or they could be on a holiday period. The latter are examples of non permanent vacancies. Efficient planning maintains PRODUCTIVITY. Productivity is when a company reaches there aims, also productivity is the amount of output created.

In person- This is when a person go to a branch where he would ask the staff who work there whether or not they have vacancies or not, after the company will tell him what to do next. Recruitment - Flow chart Hospitality Industry Size and of the industry The hospitality industry is probably the world's fastest-growing, job-creating profession, employing one in ten people worldwide. In the UK alone, the industry employs over 1.8 million people. It is estimated that the industry will require 30,000-35,000 trained people at management and supervisory level year on year until 2010, if it is to fulfil its potential. There are currently too few students taking college and university courses in hospitality to sustain this requirement. You can imagine, therefore, that there is enormous scope for those who want to pursue a career in the industry, plus a huge range of employment opportunities across the varied sub sectors. ...read more.

Conclusion

If an employer is said to have a high turnover, it most often means that employees of that company have a shorter tenure than those of other companies in that same industry. Similarly, if the average tenure of employees in a particular sector is lower than that in other sectors, that sector can be said to have a relatively high turnover. means that employees are unhappy with the work or compensation, but it can also indicate unsafe or unhealthy conditions, or that too few employees give satisfactory performance (due to unrealistic expectations or poor candidate screening). Low turnover indicates that none of the above is true: employees are satisfied, healthy and safe, and their performance is satisfactory to the employers. Retention flow chart Contract of employment A contract of employment exists as soon as an employee starts work. Starting work proves that they accept the terms and conditions offered by the employer. Both employer and employee is band by the terms offered and accepted. Employees are however entitled by the law to the law to be given a written statement setting out the "main features" Of their employment written two months of the start date. Conclusion I have finally learnt from this task how to analyse a application for as I know why the company have written what they wrote. I also know what high staff turnover is and why it happens and what happens to prevent this from happening. I have also learnt the steps in which a company takes to hire staff. I have also learnt the steps in which to take to when working as a mnanger and what ways in which managers can get promoted. Gabby Ajibola ...read more.
