Introduction

´╗┐Asid Ashraf Unit 13 Recruitment & Selection in Business P1: Identify how two organisations plan recruitment using internal and external sources In this assignment I am going to be explaining the recruitment process of two organisations. Recruitment is the activity of employing workers to fill vacancies or enrolling new members. Employment recruitment is composed of several stages: verifying that a vacancy exists; drawing up a job specification; finding candidates; selecting them by interviewing and other means; and making a job offer. Reasons to recruit people: Employees leave their job, because they can find another place where the company will pay them better salary. Employees leave for training to learn more about the department they work. Employees may have got a suitable place for work. There are different reasons for an organisation to recruit someone; Employee leaving, increased volume of business, Different work, Maternity cover, Sickness. The other reason for employees leave is because of sickness, a time away from work caused by illness, injury, or other form of incapacity, which means that an employee is medically unfit for work. It depend how long the person is going to be off work. Person may be recruited to cover another employee when they go on maternity leave and their work needs to be done by someone else. ...read more.

be better suited / qualified for the job Another vacancy will be created that has to be filled Existing staff may feel they have the automatic right to be promoted, whether or not they are competent Business may become resistant to change; by recruiting from outside, new perspectives and attitudes are brought in Recruiting externally: There are many sources on how to recruit externally such as careers fairs, newspapers, Job Websites ( monster.co.uk), agencies e.g. reed.co.uk, job centres, head-hunters, company websites such as BA, Volkswagen, John Lewis and Arcadia. Advantages of recruiting externally: Outsider people bring in new ideas Larger pool of workers from which to find the best candidates People have a wider range of experience Disadvantages of recruiting externally: Longer process More expensive process due to advertising and interviews required Selection process may not be effective enough to reveal the best candidate Agency: A recruitment agency can help you by submitting you for vacancies notified to the agency by employers. Employers use recruitment agencies in order to Recruit for a new type of post for which they have no expertise Minimise publicity when recruiting in one area of work while losing staff in another Conceal recruitment activities from competitors Get help with the recruitment process - eg if they don't have enough staff to deal with it Many agencies specialise in certain types of work, within certain sectors or in particular geographical areas. ...read more.

Conclusion

The interview: The interview will mostly cover Your Background and technical skills, Your abilities ? both personal and professional and Your fit with our Values. Selection stage: The face to face interview is the last stage in the process ? it varies by role. In other cases there may be further interviews or perhaps individual assessment exercises or attendance at an assessment centre. Pre-Employment Screening: During the employment screening Tesco will do their normal check-ups for example ID checks and credit checks The Offer: If everything goes well Tesco will be in a position to offer the job to you. Psychometric Test: Psychometric tests are structured methods used by employers to assess each candidate?s suitability for a job. They may include aptitude or ability tests, personality questionnaires or a combination of both. Psychometric testing is usually one part of a multi-stage recruitment process. Aptitude Test: These are formal tests, completed online or on a printed answer sheet. They are designed to test your reasoning and cognitive capability, usually to a strict deadline. Each test is generally comprised of multiple choice questions. An employee will be given instructions before you start and there will be some example questions to try with no time limit. Online tests are often used as an early selection method. An employee will usually be asked to sit a similar test in person, should you progress to a later stage of assessment or selection. ...read more.
