  27. 27. 27 ______________________________________ CHAPTER – 5 THEORETICAL BACKGROUND ___________________________________ THEORETICAL BACKGROUND
  28. 28. 28 Operative Functions The operative functions of HRM are related to specific activities of HRM, viz. employment, development, and compensation and employee relations. Since the human resource function is unique to each organization, the activities of each organization differ from one organization to other organization. The various operative functions are discussed below.  Employment Employment is the first operative function of HRM. This involves procuring and employing individuals with suitable knowledge, skills, experience and aptitude necessary to perform various jobs. It includes functions such as job analysis, recruitment, selection, placement and induction.  Job analysis To ensure the satisfactory performance of an employee, his skills, ability and motivation to perform a job must match the requirement of the job. A mismatch will result in poor performance, absenteeism, turnover and other problems. Job analysis is the process by which the tasks, which comprise the job, are determined and the skills and abilities required to perform it successfully are identified. It involves: i. Preparing job description ii. Job specification, iii. Job requirement and iv. Employee specification so that HR can determine the nature, levels and quantum of human resources required. Providing the guides, plans, and basis
  29. 29. 29 for job design and redesign. It also forms the basis for all operative functions of HRM.  Recruitment To a large extent, the effectiveness of an organization depends on the effectiveness of its employees. Hence recruitment of human resource becomes a significant function of HR. Recruitment is the process of seeking and attracting prospective candidate against a vacancy in an organization. It involves: i. Tapping the existing source of applicants and developing new sources; ii. Identifying or creating new source of applicant; iii. Stimulating and attracting the candidates to apply for job in the organization; iv. Deciding the recruitment procedure.  Parameters of Recruitment In recruitment and selection job analysis plays a significant role. Every organization first goes through job analysis, job description and job specification. Firstly the organization frames its own job analysis. Job Analysis is a worker oriented job analytic approach that attempts to describe the whole person on the job. This includes the functional, specific, content, and adaptive skills needed by an individual to perform a job satisfactorily. Under the job analysis process we identify and prepare the job description and job specifications. Job analysis includes the following steps: a. Fundamental job description b. Functional specification
  30. 30. 30 a. Fundamental job description A complete job description should contain job identification information, a job summary the job duties, accountabilities and job specifications or employment standards information. Developing a comprehensive, accurate job description gives the work unit the opportunity to determine if a reorganization of the work is necessary, Confirm previously enacted changes to the job duties, Develop realistic requirement for the position, including specific education and experience, qualification, skills, or professional characteristics. Fundamental Job description comprises of the information in these areas: o Title o Main tasks and key areas. o Responsibilities. b. Functional specifications A functional specification is of equal importance to the job description. the person specification details the skills, experience, abilities and expertise that are required to do the job. It should be drawn up after the job description and, with the job description, should inform the content if the advert. The person specification should be specific, related to the job, and not unnecessarily restrictive. The person specification must form part of the future particulars of a vacancy along with the job description in order that applicants have a full picture of what the job entails. Personal requirement and specifications for a particular job are the personal knowledge, skills, aptitudes, and traits that are required for successful performance. It includes knowledge and skills
  31. 31. 31  Selection The purpose of employment selection is to choose the right candidate for a job. The process of identifying and establishing the credential of candidate for a job to ensure success is referred to as selection. This includes predicting the in-job performance of candidates. This deals with: i. Scanning the application forms/CVs; ii. Identifying and developing suitable and reliable testing techniques; iii. Involving the line managers or respective departments; iv. Evaluating the candidates and fixing their compensation and benefits; v. Intimation to the candidates who could not make it to the process; vi. Analyzing the candidate on the basis of the references produced by him/her; vii. Evaluating the candidate through the pre employment medical test; viii. Issuance of the offer letter.  Placement After a selected candidate conveys his acceptance of the offer of employment made by an organization, his placement has to be decided based on the needs of organization and the individual. The individual’s location preference is also kept in mind. The suitable candidate is negotiated upon the grade to the company. This is based upon the candidate’s previous employment, the candidate’s experience, his / her expectations and the organization’s budget for the concerned position. After making all the negotiations, salary is offered to the selected candidate.
  32. 32. 32  Induction Introducing a new employee to the organization, its business, the organization culture, its values and beliefs and practices and procedures is termed as induction. It also includes helping the employees to get acquainted with his new job and his task and responsibilities. The new employee is oriented to all departments and relevant locations through a scheduled and structured induction plan by the HRD Department. The candidate is introduced to everybody in the office and his / her job starts from day one itself.
  33. 33. 33 RECRUITMENT STRATEGIC ISSUES IN RECRUITMENT: A well designed and comprehensive requirement analysis is invaluable to organizations well-being. Requirement analysis basically ensures the availability of right resource in the right place to match the future organizational needs. Requirement analysis can be defined as the process of ensuring the right number of qualifies people, into right job at the right time to deliver the results in an efficient and effective manner. The objectives are: i. To maintain the required quantity and quality of human resources required. ii. To plan to meet organizational human resources needs at the time of expansion or diversification. iii. To make contingent plans to handle sudden requirement and situations of shortfall. One of the key strategic issues involved in the recruitment process are whether to make or buy strategy, whether to have centralized or decentralized efforts, outsource or retain in house. The other key issues involved are allocation of resource to the recruitment functions, relative focus on internal v/s external sources and to make choice of common and evaluation technique. Recruitment Procedure Recruitment is the process of seeking and attracting the right kind of people to apply for a job in an organization. Recruitment in any organization is effected by various internal and external factors. Internal factors include the recruitment policy, time and cost constraints etc. External factors include the situations in the economy, job
  34. 34. 34 market, the industry etc. The recruitment policy of an organization effectively defines and determines the pattern, the sources and the methods of recruitment of the firm. A good recruitment policy is based on the organizations objectives, complies with the government policy, and results in successful placement in the organization at the minimum cost and time. It provides the basic framework in the form of guidelines procedures and sources of recruitment. A good recruitment policy has to be flexible and proactively respond to the changing market situation. There are various sources of recruitment available for an organization. The organization has to choose the most suitable ones depending on its recruitment needs and its recruitment policy. The different sources are internal sources (recruitment from within the organization) and external sources like campus recruitment, advertisements, employment agencies, etc. the organization has to take into consideration the relevance and effectiveness of each source before selecting the sources for its recruitment program. Recruitment strategies, objectives, policies and the sources and methods need to be evaluated continuously to ensure their alignment with corporate strategies, objectives, and policies. The effectiveness and efficiency of the recruitment tools and sources can also be evaluated from time to time and changes made to match the current and future recruitment needs of the organization. Getting Resume An organization will have a much greater choice in human resource if it decides to go in for external recruitment. There are various methods of recruiting from external sources some of which are discussed below.
  35. 35. 35 A. Internal sources: Many organizations try and identify employees from within the organization to be groomed to take on higher responsibilities. Internal recruiting is beneficial, as workers know the firm culture, managers already know the workers and the internal; advancement can motivate the employees. In today s technologically advanced world many organizations depend on their HRIS. Some of the internal sources are discussed below:  Job Posting Openings are published on bulletin board (electronic or hard copy) or in lists available to all employees. Interested employees must reply within a specified number of days and they may or may not have to obtain the consent of immediate supervisors. This is the process used by managers to provide information about job openings to employees.  Employees Referrals Employees working with an organization recommend their friends or acquaintances for vacant position in the organization. This source is usually one of the most effective of recruiting because many qualified people are reached at very low cost to the company. In an organization with the large number if employees, this approach can provide quite a large pool of potential organizational members. Employees Referrals are the most reliable source of filling the vacant posts especially for the lower and middle management.
  36. 36. 36  Temporary Talent pools In Temporary Talent pools are created to meet out the unexpected demand of the human resource in the organization.  Ex Employees Organization can recruit their previous employees as they can prove to be reliable as they knows about the organization policies and procedures and need not to be trained and can easily adjust to the environment. B. External sources: To meet demands for talent brought about by business growth to seek fresh ideas or to replace employees who leave organizations periodically turn to the outside labor market. Managers look outside the firm for people who have not worked at the firm before. Managers advertise in the news papers, hold open houses, recruit at universities, and on the internet.  Newspaper Advertisements Advertisements are placed in both newspaper and trade journals and three factors influence the choice of this media- cost, profile of the readership and circulation. Press advertisements are creative, attractive and contain all the information relating to the job. Some factors affecting the design of advertisement are: i. The image of the organization ii. The nature of the job iii. The chosen media
  37. 37. 37 iv. The predilection of the target market.  Employment agencies Employment agencies have a popular image as suppliers of temporary office staff but they too have changed their service in line with changes in the labor market and have increased the range of occupations they cover. They are broadly classified into public or state agencies, private agencies and head hunters.  Job Portals The professional uses search firms to find suitably qualified candidates for the client organizations. It relies on the network and relationships. Many recruiting firms now specialize in targeted recruiting for many jobs. In which one fee provides a list of candidates whose credential matches the job specifications and for an additional fee they complete the search process.  Campus Visit: Campus especially the reputed one turn into hunting grounds for organization looking for fresh talent. These institutions offer placement services to their students by trying to get some of the best companies in the market to their campus for recruitment.  Recruitment fairs Recruitment fairs are the most suitable for the establishment of a new store, branch, or unit inviting interested people to visit the location meet existing staff and talk about the work as it enables information to be transmitted, questions answered and initial assessment of potential applicants to be made.
  38. 38. 38 Short-listing Short-listing is the transition phase between recruitment and selection. It is the stage of where the total number of applicants is reduced to select group the employers wishes to carry on the selection phase. Short-listing has not been subjected to the came degree of research as some of the other stages of recruitment and selection. In short- listing some basis are prejudgments distort the fairness and quality of the decision. Short- listing may comprise several stages depending on the number of application received, the complexity of the job requirements and the sophistication of the selection processes used by the organization. A. WHO Short-lists The most common way to educe the number of applications is to examine them in order to construct a short-list. a. The line manager b. A member of personal staff. c. A recruitment consultant d. A team of selectors Short-listing by individual Short-listing by individual is a system in which the information of the prospective employees is assed by the individuals so that errors of decision making could be reduced. Short-listing by individuals system nee to ensure that application of the criteria is consistent personal basis reduced. For this decision check list should be
  39. 39. 39 prepared which can help the human resource manager to examine a lot of application and be reasonably confident that the same sorts of judgments about the criteria have been made against predetermined factors. Group short-listing In group short-listing the applicants CVs are short-listed by the people working in groups. In group short-listing some processes and system are needed to reduce the negative effects of group dynamics and the introduction of side issues to ensure the individuals involved uses the same explicit and implicit criteria. Short-listing by several individuals separately Short-listing by several individual separately is the process in which candidates information are reviewed by different individuals separately so that the biases and decision making errors could be reduced. Bit again some mechanism is needed to ensure consistency but the effects of group pressure are removed this can b done by integrating the opinion of the shortlist in a group setting or by one individual. B. Short-listing the Process  Short-listing must be carried out independently by at least two people and ideally, as many of the interview panel as possible.  Any member of staff, who may prejudice the outcome, should be excluded from the short listing. For example, those with a close personal relationship with one of the short listed candidates.  Short listing should always be carried out using the person specification so that applications can be measured and assessed against criteria.
  40. 40. 40  Each criterion included in the person specification should be appropriate to the position and measurable enabling short listing decisions to be made on the basis of fact and not assumptions.  The use of short listing form is strongly recommended.  The form can be used by each person on the short listing panel to record their individual assessment of each candidate and provide feedback to candidates.  Staff involved in short listing should use the person specification together with the short listing form to indicate whether the applicants: i. Fully meet the criteria (Shortlisted) ii. Partly meet the criteria (Hold) iii. Don t meet the criteria (Not Suitable)  If an interview panel have used short listing form, it is advisable to continue using the form at the interview stage for the purpose of selection.  Short listing decisions must be based only on the information contained in the application form that relates to the job description and person specification, together with any other supporting information supplied by the candidate. Information contained in the application form not relevant to the job should be disregarded.  The attributes in the person specification must be consistently applied to all candidates irrespective of the gender, ethnic origin , age, socio economic background, disability, religious or political beliefs, family circumstances, or other irrelevant factors.
  41. 41. 41  Some information can only be determined at the interview stage. Likewise some criteria can only be assessed through alternative selection methods such as group exercise presentations, tests etc. it is important therefore that the staff involved in short listing should agree which attributes they are assessing, and which ones they are not.  After the individual assessment if each application, the short listing panel should meet with the intention of reaching and agreeing upon of whom to short list. Once the short list has been drawn up, candidates should be invited to interview. It is important at this stage to find out if any candidate has any special needs for equipment or assistance in reading and participating in the interview.
  42. 42. 42 SELECTION The process of choosing the most suitable candidate for a job from among the available applicants is called Selection. The selection procedure is concerned with securing relevant information about an applicant. The information is secured in a number of stages or steps. The objective of selection process is to determine whether an applicant meets the qualification for a specific job and to choose the applicant who is most likely to perform well on the job. It is the process of selecting the best candidate out of available and rejecting unsuitable candidate. It is a negative process or a process of elimination. The principle of right man for right job will be achieved when the selection process used is scientific. In selection mainly they carry three steps. First there is a preliminary interview based on Resume and skills required. If they find the candidate suitable they conduct the second round of interview. If he meets all the specifications of the job than final the panel consisting of HR executive, GM and other departmental head if required, takes interview. These interviews are conducted mostly for Management trainees or for high post. In all other cases to fill up the lower positions only HR Executives takes the interview and he can select the candidate based on HR decision. Position for apprentice, for clerical job is selected or filled up by HR executive only.
  43. 43. 43 Interviews Phases Organizations use interview as an essential step in the selection process. An interview helps in assessing the applicants profile and comparing it with the job profile for suitability. Interview helps in assessing the candidate and validating the information provided in his application. The other advantage of an interview is that it forms a part of recruitment process.  Preliminary interview Preliminary interviews are brief, first round interviews that aim to eliminate the applicant who are obviously unqualified for the job. These interviews are generally informal and unstructured. In an unstructured interview, the interviewer does not plan the course of interview; instead the candidate is usually allowed to set the course of the interview. These interviews gather the more obvious facts and information. They enable the manager to quickly evaluate the interviewee on the basis of appearance and the quality of communication.  Selection Interview A selection or core interview is normally the interaction between the job applicants and the line manager or experts, where the applicants job knowledge, skills, talent, etc, are evaluated and ascertained. The suitability of the candidate for the job is determined in this interview. A selection interview can be of the following types: i. Formal/ Structured interview A structured interview is very rigid in its structure and contents. It is based on a thorough job analysis, which directs the flow of the interview. The interviewer selects the questions to be asked and plans the interview in
  44. 44. 44 advance, to comprehensively cover all the areas related to the job and the candidate. The questions are so framed as to cover all the pertinent aspects ii. Unstructured interview An unstructured interview, as the name suggests, has no predetermined framework of questions and takes its own course depending on the responses of the candidate and the interest of the interviewer. There are more open- ended questions in an unstructured interview, in such type candidate remains comfortable during this interview because the interactions tend to proceed naturally.  Panel interview In today’s organization where all functions are interdependent and every job involves cross-functional reactions, it is imperative that the people from different functions interview a candidate. In such interview representatives from different departments get to meet and interview a candidate. This also reduces the subjectivity involved in the one to one interview. As experts, these interviewers evaluate the candidate and his suitability for the position. In-depth interview In-depth interviews are more suitable for selection of candidates for high end technology and high skill jobs. Experts in the relevant area test the candidate s knowledge and understanding of the subject and assess his expertise. They determine the suitability of the candidate for the job in question, based on these evaluations.
  45. 45. 45  Decision making Interview After experts including line managers in the organization evaluate the applicant s knowledge in the core areas of the job, the departmental heads and the HR function finally interview the applicants. These interviews are usually informal discussion where the applicant’s interest in the job and the organization, his reaction/adaptability to the working conditions, career planning and promotional opportunities; work adjustment and allotment, etc. are evaluated and discussed. The HR manger also tries to find out the candidates expectations regarding salary, allowances, benefits, promotions, and career opportunities. The departmental head and the HR manager together communicate their decision to the chairmen of interview board or decision- making authority, which takes the final decision selecting the candidate.
  46. 46. 46 ELEMENTS IN SELECTION PROCESS The process of selection starts with a review of the applications. These applications can be either in a company specified format or in the format submitted by individual applicants. At this stage, the company checks the basic qualification and experience of candidate. Applicants who do not match the required basic criteria are rejected at this stage. Some companies may also go in for an initial screening before accepting applications from the candidates. The applicants are called for a test or an interview, as the case may be, after the initial screening. Tests are normally conducted to analyze JOB SPECIFICATION COMPETENCY MODELLING SELECTION RECRUITMENT POLICY ORGANISATION JOB DESIGN JOB DESDESCRIPTION
  47. 47. 47 the skill levels of the candidates. These tests have to be in compliance with the law, validated by the organization and relevant to the job being offered. STEPS IN THE SELECTION PROCESS Initial Screening Analyze the Application Test and Evaluation Preliminary Interview Core & Departmental View Reference Check Job Offer Medical Examination Placement Offer to next suitable Candidate Resume
  48. 48. 48 Evaluating an applicant during selection involves understanding his emotional stability, attitude and value system apart from evaluating his knowledge and skill levels. An individual s inclination to learn, his interpersonal skills or his openness to suggestions etc. are more difficult to assess, when compared to his knowledge of machinery or analytical skills. It is however the responsibility of the employer to assess these traits of the applicant, as accurately as possible, without annoying the applicant and using legal means. For successful performance on the job, these are as important as if not more important than the knowledge and skills of the employee. This assessment has to take into account organizational objectives and the work culture. The individual characteristics, which are of importance in the context of the organization, have to be assessed carefully, while those that are irrelevant can be ignored. The HR manager has to use his direction in assessing the individual as per the recruitment policy guidelines. Evaluation of the Interview Process Interviewing is difficult and by the end of the session the skilled interviewer through his experience and use of the best techniques will have amassed a good deal of evidence about the candidate. But the interpretation of his evidence and the ability to comprehend and evaluate it, make even greater demands on the interviewer than the interview itself. Evaluation requires a total comprehension of the job and of the candidate and of their relationship to each other. It means attempting to predict the future behavior of a number of comparatively unknown candidates in a work situation.

  68. 68. 68 ______________________________________ CHAPTER – 7 CONCLUSIONS ________________________________________
  69. 69. 69 CONCLUSION The purpose of effective recruiting is to attract strong candidates who are prepared both to meet the organizations strategic goals and priorities and to work in the organizations environment. Recruitment is the first step in the process of acquiring and retaining human resources for an organization. In today’s rapidly changing business environment organizations have to respond quickly to requirement for people. Bad appointment affects the company, individual and others, though not necessarily in that order. The wrong person doing the wrong job is harmful to the company’s health. Bad recruitment can prove very costly and great loss to organization. But Cushman & Wakefield takes adequate time in recruiting. It realizes the value of human capital and its role in their development. In Cushman & Wakefield, recruitment and selection program are effective to people and the involvement of the officers is also high. Every employee in the company is trying to make this system more effective in terms of recruitment proper technical persons with good skills in their own fields which would result in overall performance of the company and thus one can say Cushman & Wakefield follows a systematic and scientific method for recruitment & selection of its employees.
  70. 70. 70 In context to the advertisement, I would like to conclude that we have received more than 6000 applications, interviewed more than 400 candidates on an India basis in which 20 candidates were shortlisted till date and around 150 candidates are kept on hold in a two months time period and process is still going on.
  71. 71. 71 _____________________________________ CHAPTER – 8 SUGGESTIONS ________________________________________
  72. 72. 72 sSUGGESTIONS In today s competitive world because of Globalization & Liberalization, the organization has to keep their people abbesses with latest information and knowledge in the field of technology and matter of administration as well.

  73. 73. 73 ____________________________________ CHAPTER – 9 LIMITATIONS ________________________________________
  74. 74. 74 LIMITATIONS OF THE PROJECT A research is a never-ending process and research work in any field of knowledge makes the ground for more researches. Therefore all studies have their own limitations. It is needless to say that while working on this project I faced many difficulties, which becomes the limitation of this project. The major limitations are: 1. The ratio of incoming applications is very high. Segregating around 400 applications on daily basis is very tedious task.. 2. The record keeping cannot be accurate since the sample size is huge in number. 3. Though every precaution has been taken while analyzing the data yet a few errors are bound to appear.
