  3. 3. Document Control Version Author Date 1.0 Poulomi Chatterjee 21/11/2014 What Is a Standard Operating Procedure? A set of fixed instructions or steps for carrying out routine operations and to provide detailed guidance for initiating and completing any HR action. The Objective / Purpose The objective and purpose of this document is to provide and maintain the protocol for the on-boarding of all new hires and processing employees that have either taken a decision to leave Choice Force on their own accord or a decision that has resulted in Choice Force having to remove the employee from Choice Force. This document will ensure that all departments follow these uniformed procedures in drafting, posting requisitions, interviewing candidates, presenting offers and on-boarding of new hires. Examples of the benefits and outcomes of this document are listed below and aren’t exclusive; I. Effective utilization of Human Resources II. Desirable working relationships among all members of the organization III. Maximum individual development Functions Human Resources have a large array of tasks that need to be acquired on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. HR always initiates and implements these functions keeping in mind the deadlines whilst attending the existing employees. Due to this reason some of the outcomes of each function aren’t not universal from employee to employee but the decision making flow is uniformed to ensure that a fair decision and resolution is always the end result. The core functions that are performed by Human Resources Department are below: i) Planning ii) Promotions & Marketing/Advertising iii) Recruitment/staffing, selection and employee relations iv) Employee development and employee maintenance v) Managing change and facilitating training and development vi) Salary determination vii) Performance appraisal review and processing viii) Personnel data entry and records maintenance ix) Advisory services to management and employees - Grievances
  4. 4. x) Exit formalities / Full and final settlements xi) Policy enforcement, review and updation. xii) Employee engagement – welfare and motivation I. Planning In the Human Resource planning function, the number and type of employees needed to accomplish the organizational goals are determined by various operational departments. Research is important because manpower planning requires the collection and analysis of information in order to meet the operational need. The basic strategy is staffing and employee development. It depends on the following factors: a) The number of people required b) The number of people leaving the job c) The growth in sales of the business d) Productivity level of the workers II. Recruitment Marketing or Promotions or Advertising a) Advert placements: Print media is one of the most reliable and common recruitment methods placed in local newspapers and magazines. The key is to advertise in newspapers that are likely to attract the kinds of candidates sought by the Company. For eg : The Times Of India, The Telegraph, Times of India Ascent etc. The designs are prepared by the HR department and sent across for printing keeping in mind the timelines for submission of the same. b) Internal Bulletins and personal Recommendations: Usage of internal bulletins to alert existing staff to positions vacant is also very helpful. Their reasons are usually twofold: to pose Referral Incentives from the Company. This can be a very effective way to isolate some of the best job candidates. Both existing staff and those they refer already have a relationship with someone connected to the company. This can easily save companies time and money in their recruitment efforts. c) E – Recruitment: Posting the positions with the job descriptions and the specifications on the job portal and also searching for the suitable resumes posted on the site corresponding to the opening in the organisation. Having a complete access to One job portal may require a good one time investment but is fruitful because it facilitates the just in time hiring by the organizations. This helps in automating the recruitment process, saves time and costs on recruitment. Sometimes posting vacancies on certain free of cost job portals are also of good help. For Eg : olx.in, Click.in, Jobsgala.com, freshersworld.com, careerage.com etc
  5. 5. d) Social and new media advertising: This can be a fruitful resource, since they connect professionals on a worldwide basis. By using popular social networking websites, it is possible to find, collaborate with and get introductions to many qualified professionals. i) LinkedIn - Is a dedicated business networking site, and offers the easiest access to resume-style information. Company page should be updated and current, because it helps build your network by connecting with current and former co - workers. ii) Facebook – GET SOCIAL!! If multiple current employees send out job postings with links to your recruiting website or your company's Facebook fan page, your job openings reach a wide audience. iii) Google+ - HRs can search for users very easily and it is becoming a contender to LinkedIn – especially while recruiting for technology talent. On top of that, recruiters also find the Hangouts feature very useful for group interviews. iv) #Twitter – Twitter attracts professionals with progressive skill sets. Using Hashtags allows your message to be instantly searchable. Hashtags offer an easy and quick way to find engaged users with a particular interest or skill set. We could post day to day recruitment updates on the Company Twitter page and offer a short message which redirects users / applicants to the Company Profile. e) Campus Drive: Through the Campus placement drives / job fairs, the employer can screen and interact with vast pool of college student database and reach to quality / reputed college campuses across India. As a result the company gains :  Selection from vast student database you are able to select the right candidate  Enhancement of Company Corporate Image  Easy filtering process f) Branding: Employment branding is a targeted, long-term strategy to manage the awareness and perceptions of employees, potential employees with regards to The Company. This can be tuned into drive recruitment, retention etc. It works by putting forth an image surrounding management and business practices that makes the company an attractive “good place to work”. For eg :  Obtaining public recognition  Get featured in the “Great place to work list”  Employees proactively telling their “stories” of success in THE COMPANY.  Getting talked about
  6. 6. III. The Interview The candidate fills out an Interview Form and attaches the same with their CVs. The HR receives all the applications and conducts the First Round followed by second and third (situational). The HR maintains a record of the number of selects which is the “Interview Selection Tracker” and the same becomes useful when we require to produce stats on various areas like attrition and reasons of rejection etc Round 1: The HR conducts the first round and analyses, where the candidate matches the expected job profile. We just candidates upon their communication skills , body language, thought flow, expressions, the fact that he/she is providing correct information pertaining the kind of organizations that he/she has worked with, whether he/she matches the budget or not etc. Round 2: The candidates who pass “HR Round” are therefore forwarded to the Second round / Technical Round. They typically involve more detailed questions about the applicant’s qualifications, their ability to perform for The Company. This round is conducted by the Line Manager. At the end of second round, we get to know that how much knowledge the candidate possesses in regards to the respective process. Round 3: This round is either conducted by the Operations Manager (India) or in certain cases by the Line Manager (Melbourne). The Operations Manager is responsible for the final round of interview. He monitors the work of different departments within The Company. He judges the candidate based upon the below:  Planning, organizing and priority setting  Problem solving skills  Team orientation  Level of interest for the job Round 4-The Salary Negotiation Tango: This round sends the candidate back to Human Resources post the Operations Manager’s feedback. Salaries are offered and discussed based upon the below factors:  Last drawn salary. We generally provide a 10 – 15% hike upon the last drawn. The ratio varies depending upon the candidate quality.  Previous employment documents are validated. i.e Salary slips, Letter of appointment, letter of release etc
  7. 7. IV. The Selection Once the candidates are selected and the offer is made, they are asked to join Choice Force for the Training.
