Introduction

How Tesco would use local labour market information to recruit an employee. If Tesco found that they needed to recruit an office supervisor externally, after finding that the company did not have the suitable candidate(s) internally, it would need to use relevant local labour market information. Tesco's would need to research the following: 1. Age breakdown of the local workforce 2. Gender breakdown of the local workforce 3. Employment status of the local workforce 4. Unemployment trends locally and Nationally 5. Qualifications of suitable people within locally 6. Number of people staying on at school Nationally 7. Skills shortages within locally. 8. Wage rates locally and nationally. 1. the age structure of the population working age in UK, from 1997 to 2010 this is based on a prediction of the future using information from census and birth rates.

Conclusion

and from this Tesco can begin preparations for recruiting a new employee when a current one is coming close to retirement age. Factors like these can only be determined from labour market trends as it is the only accurate and official source of information cumulated on the labour of England. Failure to comprise such detail for tesco would mean that they cannot set high targets of achievement as the workforce would not be the best that they could get as they have not done enough research into other employees available throughout the country. Labour market trends tells the company about the kind of contracts that potential employees are looking for example part time full time permanent etc. however if tesco do not take this into account and launch full time vacancies into a population which is primarily looking for part time vacancies then they will see that their productivity will be low as they will not have the employees to perform the jobs. If Tesco did not have this sort of information they would not be able to assess and monitor many of the issues that they may be subjected to when hiring an employee. ?? ?? ?? ??
