About This Unit<br />Managers have responsibility for ensuring that the most suitable people are employed (directly orindirectly) by the organisation. Recruitment and selection are key aspects of this, but it is alsoimportant that the organisation retains the people it requires. ‘People’ covers all types of staff,whether they are full time or part-time, paid or voluntary. The process of recruiting and selectingthem also covers people coming into a department or team, as well as the people who are enteringthe organisation itself. Managers do not therefore have to have responsibility for recruitment into theorganisation in order to perform this function.<br />
Activities<br />1. Think of colleagues/staff who have left your employment, what where there reasons for leaving? How do you think, as a manager, you can identify ways of addressing staff turnover problems - suggest possible remedies? (PC1,2)<br />2. As a manager it is fundamentally important to review existing staff numbers in order to execute required tasks against any given specifications. Complete a short analysis of your team that may include; shortfall in numbers, skills knowledge, understanding and experience. Summarize by suggesting a solution to the problem. (PC3,4,)<br />3. Consult with others (external agencies if applicable) to produce or update job descriptions for your staff. Below are some suggested websites/links that will help you identify skill sets in order to produce, check or update existing job descriptions. (PC5,6)<br />
