Recruiting, hiring and retaining the requisite competencies (supplied by the employees of course) is a core deliverable of Human Resources Deliverables. We begin by looking at the nature of jobs – and the steps involved in conducting job analyses. The interesting part for me is managing the global aspects of these issues. Accommodating time zones and dealing with ex-pats issues are an added dimension for today’s HR professionals. In this first conference topic, first, I’d like you to discuss your understanding of workflow analysis. What is it? Why would a company go through all of this effort to conduct a workflow analysis? And by all means, take the time to read and respond to a colleague’s post. You can certainly disagree, just as long as you support your argument. After workflow analysis comes job analysis. Describe the job analysis process in your own words. Include in your discussion you understanding of the stages and methods used in the process. And then, I’d like to hear your ideas about how you would conduct a job analysis in a company that had never had job descriptions. What roadblocks might you expect to encounter? What are your strategies and approaches for overcoming the roadblocks? In chapter 7 we look at recruiting practices. The first step for me in the recruiting process is to know the labor markets available to me. So, in this first topic, I would like you to discuss your definition of labor markets. Be sure to include a list of the labor market components. Then include an idea or two about how you can and/or should actually recruit in the different labor markets. (Try to see your answer as a summary of the material found in your texts on pages 194 – 199.) Second part….a major strategic recruiting decision is whether to recruit internally or externally. Do you have preference? Discuss the pros and cons of these options, state your preference – and then be sure to defend your decision. NOTE: You will want to understand the pros and cons of each option. This would be a wonderful exam question, wouldn’t it?
