Introduction

Tesco human Resources The human resources department focuses on human resources. This means that they are responsible for looking after people. They focus on recruiting, employing, staff training, working conditions, retention, dismissal, health and safety. The meaning of recruitment is hiring some one for a job which is vacant. This means that they would have to advertise the job vacancy and hire the person with the best qualities and qualifications for the job. They have to be able to recruit people locally and people far away for different jobs. E.g. if they want some one to work in the production line they would have different skills, qualities and qualifications than some one who wants to be a manager, secretary, caretaker etc. That's why Tesco have to try and find the person with the right skills, qualities and qualifications for the job that they would like to do. When they are advertising for a job vacancy they need to make it as effective as possible because they need to make sure that the advertise attracts as many people as possible. ...read more.

In staff training they need to be able to train their staff as efficiently as possible so they can compete with other competing companies. This way they will not need to fire any old staff and hire new staff that already has the training. Tesco have to train their staff the best they can as efficiently as possible so they are able to cope with new machinery so they can make as much product as they can without wasting any. E.g. Tesco have hired some staff which checks up on machines in the production line. The staff checks if machines to see if they are working so they can fix they machine as quickly as possible so they only waste a few products as possible. Tesco must be able to train their old staff and also their new staff. ...read more.
