Introduction

GCSE Business Coursework: People In Business The different types of organization are sole trader, partnership, LTD's or Plc's. The fast food restaurants are mainly public limited companies because of the size of the organization. The fast food restaurant organizations have key functions: Production, human resources and financial market. A fast food restaurants main objective is to make profit. Its secondary objective is to serve food fast, constantly, at a low price. For this they mainly employ young adults, or teenagers, as they demand less than more qualified and more experienced adults. The role that I will adopt is the human resources manager. This controls the recruitment of staff. My main objective is to evaluate the different methods of communication used in the recruitment and training process. For this I will research the various ways in which jobs are advertised and how the employee is interviewed, short-listed, tested, trained and appointed. Firms presently advertise to recruit new members of staff by advertising, and interviewing. Recruiting can happen in two ways, internally or externally. Internal recruitment is when a company decides to recruit someone in the company, to do a job that normally has a higher status of their previous job (Promotion). ...read more.

A short list consists of the applicants that suit the job specification (Trainee manager). Short lists can be used for interviewing in which each person on the short list goes on to testing, then interview and so on (Recruitment and selection sheet diagram). The purpose of interviewing people on the short list is that it can help the employer get to know the employee, it can also help in checking their information, and finding out their personality. For an interview I would ask, * How old are you? * Qualifications? * What language do you speak? * Have you ever had this kind of job before? * What type of hour would you like? * Why do you want this job? * Do you have any medical conditions? * Would you like training? * Do you have reliable transport? * Are all your details correct? Most of these questions would be referring back to the candidate's letter of application, and would just mainly be checking that it is correct. Most candidates for interviews get taken off the list because of their lack of confidence. If they come across as being unfriendly, uncooperative or quiet the interviewer will not be impressed. ...read more.

Conclusion

and where to go to get medical attention This training program will insure that each and every employee will have the correct information on how to work in the workspace. It will help them get on well with other employees avoiding unwanted confrontations of any kind and help them work better. It will also ensure their safety and enjoyment in their job Training can effect the future of a typical fast food restaurant in several ways. Without training the employer would have to employ specific people to do each individual job, e.g. Tills, Computing, Cooking, Cleaning. With training one person can clean and cook, or use computing or ICT and do the tills. This can save an enormous amount of money in the long term, and save staff problems that may occur. Also if an employee quits, another employee can take their place immediately, or trained to do their job. Training can clearly save a lot of money, it can save the company the problem of employing new staff, and help employees improve their qualifications. If staff can be trained regularly to the latest technology or methods of work, then they can be one step ahead of anyone else in terms of productivity and profit making. ...read more.

Response to the question

In summary, the report is quite good. The report states the different types of businesses and states how the business chooses a person to employ for new job roles within the company. However I feel that some sections lack detail. In addition, the question list contains questions which are unnecessary. The student states 'the different types of organisation', this needs altering to 'businesses'. As the majority of these different types are businesses and not organisations. The student acknowledges that the employees required are either teenagers or young adults. This is due to the lack of skills required in the majority of their job roles. This is quite good, as it states the age groups of the business. This shows the examiner that there have a good understanding of the business. The student states that the manger position at the business, will be advertised using a low budget newspaper. However the majority of job vacancies will be advertised via an website. The student needs to ensure that there are 'in touch' with current times as it's quite easy to forgo the latest developments.

Level of analysis

I believe that the student isn't fully aware of what 'internal recruitment' or 'external recruitment' is. The student I believe has gotten a little confused over the two terms. 'Internal Recruitment' is whereby the business advertises itself for the job. 'External Recruitment' is whereby the business will use the servers of an external company to seek an suitable person to work at the business. The report states a number of questions that there will ask the student. Although I feel that some of these aren't necessary, such as 'What language do you speak?', as at the interview you can access their English. This question is pointless.

Quality of writing

The student states the four different types of business set-ups, although I would advise if the student were to explain these before talking about the different forms within the report.
