Then it needs to find out about the persons specifications e.g. what type of person they want and there and qualifications, then the job is advertised to newspapers and the internet and some of the job centres. When people see the job advertisements and are interested then people ask for details and application forms. When the applications form have been sent they check and see which people are the ones that are suitable and reduce the number of applicants to those that are most suitable to be interviewed, the people who are suitable for the job are then interviewed and asked questions face to face. They then choose a person who is the most suitable person for the job and contact the successful person either by letter or telephone and let them know that they are suitable for the job and when they should start. In Lex Transfleet they recruit both internally and externally. Internal recruitment - It refers to the filling of job vacancies from within the business, where existing employees are selected rather than employing someone from outside Advantages of internal recruitment helps Lex meet staff needs because: - Gives existing employees greater opportunity to advance their careers in the business. - May help to retain staff who might otherwise leave. - Requires a short induction training period.

Conclusion

This could also be a good chance for Lex to employ new staff and while employing them it is also reducing the pressure on other staff members doing that job. It can also become more efficient but they may need help to increase their profits. * The communication skills at Lex are also very good. This is a key skill to success. Lex always tries to ensure that the communication with their customers is at its highest standard. Even though it is very good I think that they should have more meetings for the customers. I think this because then the customers would feel more involved and would like to come back to Lex as they also know what is going on within the business. If they have any questions or queries they can also bring it up in these meetings. This is a good way of communicating with their customers. Getting more customers to give idea can also improve Lex as a business itself, by doing this Lex can attain higher amount of profit and make their sales increase too. * Lex can improve their customer service is by giving regular updates on any new products using posters, leaflets and fliers. This ensures that the customers have the right knowledge of the new services available and if ever needed they could straight back to Lex Transfleet. This is effective for Lex because they do not need to compete with any other company, as they already have customers coming to them and this would also help to increase their revenue. * I think that Lex should improve their customer service by issuing the employees with regular health and safety check ups and also health and safety training. This will ensure that they are always aware of what is safe and what is unsafe. It meets the needs of a customer because the customer knows that they will receive good help and advice at all times. ?? ?? ?? ?? - 1 - Mariam Ali Unit 2 - People On Business - Lex Transfleet Ms Begum 22/09/06 ...read more.
