Recruitment is a necessary process that organizations have to go through to staff and run a successful organization. “Just as corporations compete to develop, manufacture, and market the best product or service, so they must also compete to identify, attract, and hire the most qualified people” (Cascio, 2006). Aco has determined through workforce forecasting that they need to hire a new Warehouse Order Picker, for their Farmington Hills, Michigan location. This warehouse supports the sales operations for all the stores in Michigan. It is important that the right candidate is selected for this position. The job of a Warehouse Order Picker entails for the candidate to be technically and physically efficient. The ability to read, write, drive a Hi-lo and some data entry work is needed. The candidate must also be able to lift up to 50lbs and be able to withstand certain temperature fluctuations. As a management team we have decided to start the initial screening process by evaluating the application of twelve individuals based on the scoring system and recommend three applicants for a follow up, phone screening. The four applicants evaluated for the position were Barry, Charles, Corinna and Chris. Barry’s application was the second choice out of the four evaluated, it was passed up due to his lack of employment history. Charles application was impressive in terms of his work history but his application leaves us to believe that he may not be as flexible with his availability. Corinna shows a good work history on the sales side and could possibly be an asset to the organization within one of Aco’s store fronts. Corinna has customer service experience and appears to be college educated which could benefit the warehouse, but we…...

Determining Internal Candidates

...Determining if an internal candidate is suitable to replace the President and CEO of Stonewall Industries is a process that should not be taken lightly. There are five executive level candidates from different departments that possess different skills and experiences. There are a few steps to outline before making a decision on whether an internal candidate will be suitable. The first step in deciding if an internal candidate was appropriate for replacing the President and CEO of Stonewall Industries is to conduct an inventory of heir apparents. This inventory would outline basic information on each candidate’s position at Stonewall Industries, as well as any other experience they may have had in previous positions. The inventory would also evaluate any relevant education, training, and years of service at Stonewall industries. This first step is very general, but will help to outline which level of experience the successful candidate must have in order to be the head of the company. After an inventory has been conducted, those candidates that have been pooled will be evaluated on their promotability to CEO, as well as potential to be CEO. This can also be described as a management inventory. This way, our group of consultants can outline Stonewall Industries’ strengths and weaknesses, and be able to plan training and development in anticipation of Jim Pender’s retirement. Next the group of candidates will be allocated into a succession planning rating system. This......

...Fairfax Metropolitan Hospital: The Candidate Fairfax Metropolitan Hospital: The Candidate M. June Allard Assumption College Worcester State College Professor Emerita Fairfax Metropolitan Hospital is a moderately sized teaching hospital committed to quality care from a qualified staff. The hospital currently suffers from a lack of diversity among its staff, however—a glaring fault in nearly every unit at the hospital and one pointed out by several accrediting agencies. The hospital now seeks to develop a more diversified staff, which they define as one representing the racial/ethnic diversity of their community. In addition to diversifying, there is an urgent need to modernize the nursing department, as its outdated procedures and inefficient practices concern accreditors. Compounding the hospital’s concerns is the recent retirement of the director of nursing—just as another nursing accreditation visit looms on the horizon. THE INTERVIEW HR director Jorge Hansen listens as the search committee discusses a candidate they have just interviewed for the director of nursing position. The candidate is Dr. Saryn Soysa, a heavyset, pleasant young woman. Although she is very much overweight, she looks even younger than her 32 years. Originally from Sri Lanka, she has been educated in U.S. universities and is now a U.S. citizen. Dr. Soysa’s credentials are truly outstanding. She took advanced exams, graduated early from college summa cum laude, and......

Recruitment and Selection

...RECRUITMENT AND SELECTION: Recruitment means to estimate the available vacancies and to make suitable arrangements for the selection and appointment of candidates to fill those vacancies. Recruitment is understood as the process of searching for and obtaining applicants for the job, from among whom the right people can be selected. “It is the process of finding and attracting capable applicants for the employment. The process begins when new recruits are sought and ends when their applicants are submitted. The result is a pool of applicants from which new employees are selected”. Definition- (By Edwin Flippo) “Recruitment is the process of searching for prospective employees and stimulating them to apply for the jobs in the organization.” The Recruitment Process consists of the following steps: * Decide what positions to fill, through personnel planning and forecasting. * Build a pool of candidates for these jobs, by recruiting internal or external candidates. * Have candidates complete application forms and perhaps undergo initial screening interviews. * Use selection tools like tests, background investigations, and physical exams to identify viable candidates. * Decide who to make an offer to, by having the superior and perhaps others interview the candidates. Recruitment in other words, involves contact with labour market. If recruitment is done well, the business benefits from happier and more productive people, reduced staff......

...Outline the different selection methods that are available to organisations and discuss how the use of assessment centres might support the selection process. During the selection process, a company may utilise a variety of methods in order to be sure of which applicant they wish to hire. These methods will include widely used techniques such as requesting a curricula vitae be submitted, a face-to-face interview and references from employers. Another method to support the process, is the use of assessment centres. Assessment centres were originally introduced during World War Two in order to select officers in the army and navy (Ballantyne & Pover 2004 p.3-4). However since then they have become more commonly used within businesses with, according to research by the Industrial Relations Services, over 50% using them (Martin & Jackson 2002 pg.130). An assessment centre can support the selection process by allowing a business to observe applicants whilst they carry out a number of set tasks such as individual or group work, analytical exercises, oral or written output and input or role play. Assessment centres will also allow businesses to gain an insight into the characteristics of the candidates as they perform tasks which are as similar to job reality as possible (CIPD 2013). In order for any method to be effective, there are numerous criteria which must be true of the method. First the method must be both reliable and valid. Reliability is defined by......

Statisical Analysis-Presidential Candidates

...Class Project Does The Taller Presidential Election Candidate Have an Advantage? A Statistical Analysis of Voting Bias Toward Taller Presidential Election Candidates Jared Causey Online MBA Student E.J. Ourso College of Business Louisiana State University Baton Rouge, LA Abstract After analyzing each presidential election in United States history, a Texas Tech University researcher concluded that a slight bias toward taller presidential candidates exists among the voting population. His claim was based on the theory that through evolution, humans developed a bias toward taller and stronger leaders due to their ability to provide protection. The researcher purports that this bias still exists. In order to test his theory, I collected data regarding candidate height from every United States presidential election with such information readily available. Of the 53 presidential elections at issue, I found the proportion of elections won by the taller candidate to be slightly above 50 percent, suggesting that there is, in fact, a bias toward the taller candidate. Introduction Research suggests that throughout modern and ancient cultures, selection of leaders with more dominant physical traits is prevalent. However, the collective process that leads a voter to choose one candidate over another in a presidential election can depend on a number of variables. Is it then equally likely for a presidential candidate shorter than his opponent to be elected? Or is......

... (Mondy, 12th Edition). Selection is defined as the process of choosing from a group of applicants, the individual best suited for a particular position and the organization.
