Understand the difference between personnel management and human resource management
The present task gives us the understanding to the difference between the personnel management and human resource management. The company which we have chosen for the present task is Walmart. Walmart uses human resource management as the process of managing the human resource.
Personnel management is termed as a non-dependent function of any organization while the human resource management is thought to be the integral part of the working of any organization. Human resource management has a very broad and large approach as it involves the personnel as well as overall management which involves handling the team for training the workers so the benefit and welfare of the entire organization. Training program also increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the employees.
Personnel management has the main objective of training the employees and motivating them by using the external factors such as appraisal and rewards. This process increases the employee satisfaction which in turn increases the performance of the employees. Human resource management motivates the employees to increase their effectiveness in the workplace and enhance the performance of the employees. Human resource management includes the implementation of different strategies for improving the customer satisfaction which will enhance the efficiency of the employees.
Personnel management involves the reaction of the employees based on the method of management of the organization. It gives the feedbacks regarding the performance of the employees and suggests the improvements whenever required. Human resource management is the modern and the innovative approach of managing the workforce within the organization. Human resource management involves making the strategies which would help in improving the practices within the organization. (Alturkistani, 2015)
The primary function of the human resource management is to recruit, choose and train the employees within the workplace. Human resource management involves choosing the correct people, giving them the appropriate training and developing them. It helps the employees in enhancing the potential of the employees and making the system which leads the way to the success of the employees by motivating and increasing their morale.
So our chosen company Walmart needs human resource management to manage the various human resources in different departments of the company. To keep everything updated the managers at the human resource gives different forms of training to the employees train them in latest techniques and take care of the health and safety of the employees. The managers have understood the fact the motivated employees are the key elements for the success and the growth of the employees at Walmart. The managers at the human resource department provide the employees with the continuous training for the development of the employees and providing them with the appropriate appraisal and rewards.
Appraisal and rewards are very integral part of motivating the employees and hence the human resource management. It helps Walmart to train the employees in the desired way to get the desired success. Human resource management trains the employees and motivates them and responsible for the success of the company. (Tarmac, 2016)
The major role and responsibility of the line managers is recruitment and management of the employees. The big companies like Walmart have a Human Resource department which manages all the employees. The line managers have the responsibilities of carrying out the daily human resource work.
Legal and the regulatory framework of the human resource management protect the employees from any kind of discrimination at the workplace. They get the standard salary for 40 hours a week work, adequate money for overtime and defined minimum wage of the worker. It also deals with the protection of pension rights of the employees. Walmart has excellent beneficial schemes for the employees for their long term benefit. Walmart also ensures equal pay for both and women. The different labor unions can be formed which ensures the rights to the employees. Hygienic and healthy environment must be provided to the employees at the workplace. There should be no unwanted sexual harassments or inappropriate conduct at the workplace. The employee must maintain a strict code of conduct. (Christian, 2016)
Understand how to recruit employees
The main objective of the planning of the human resources is ensuring that the company has a continuous line of candidates ready to give interview for the vacant places. This is important to increase the productivity of the company. A long break between the exits of one employee and joining of the other is the productivity of the company. Forecasting comes in play in deciding the time gap between the recruitment of the employees. Hiring of the employees should be a fast process to let the new employees start their work as soon as possible. The company like Walmart also hires some employee in extra. Walmart is currently facing a high employee turnover as it cannot find the skilled employees. As an HR manager, it my prime duty to find deserving candidates for the company. In the present scenario when the company needs a large number of employees and the market is quiet rigid for the employees having the skills, and then it is the duty of the HR manager to make these employees stay in the company.
The condition becomes difficult when the competitors start hiring the skilled employees. Already the company is facing the employee turnover and now there are employees joining the rivals. At this stage the company needs to increase the salary and the compensation provided to the employees. This will make the old employees stay in the company and attract the new employees to join the Walmart. (Mayhew, 2016)
Human resource is the department in which the company predicts the future of the company and the business environment. It access the employees which ae required to perform the task in the company. The steps involved in the identification of the goals of the company and the steps involved in human resources requirements are as follows:
The organizations consider by us for the current task is Walmart and Tesco.
After the interview the candidates are required to give a psychometric assessment and the aptitude test. In Walmart it is the line manager who conducts the above interview and is responsible for the hiring of the employees.
Human resource planning is the crucial part of any organization if they want to grow in future and meet the demands of their employees. It is the process of training the already existing employees and to attract the new staff members to fill the vacant positions in the company.
So if the Walmart adopts the training technique they can overcome the employee turnover and get talented and skilled employees. It helps in increasing the skills of the employees and performance of the organization.
Tesco does not focus on the criteria of the skilled employees. They hire people right from school with good skills and behavior. They provide a healthy environment within the workplace and give adequate training to the employees. (Habib, 2013)
Know the mechanisms for the cessation of employment
In the present task we will be considering a restaurant The Chicken Master owned by Bob Jones.
The reasons for the cessation of Faisal in The Chicken Master are as follows:
In this task we consider the employee exit procedure of the two food companies which are the chicken Master and the Burger King. In big companies some people begin their career and some people terminate them every day. This influx and the exit of the people increase the job insecurities of the people in the companies. There have been numerous cases of the fired employees who feel they have been treated badly. Same is the case with Faisal he feels he has been the victim of discrimination and has been replaced by the 40 year old female. There have been many cases of the illegal entry into the company. Faisal reports the entry of the female employee as illegal. The damage caused by such practices can affect the employee and the company both.
If the employee is leaving at The Chicken Master or The Burger King he must undergo the following steps:
After receiving the layoff notice from the company the employee must access his job design and his job profile. He should identify his weak areas and try to improve in them to provide the best result to the company. All there parameters include performance and productivity of the employee, leaves, his qualification and the job profile.
The duration of the work in the company play an important role in the decision making process in the company. Skill of the employee also plays a crucial role in it. Long years of service to the organization do not secure the job to the employee. The employee has to work with commitment and dedication to stay in the company. A good employee is an asset to the company as it gives his best performance and contributes towards the success of the company. The old employee has a higher opportunity in securing the job as the new employee needs the training in that specific area.
The other aspect is that the old employee has a very long experience and they can handle the work based upon their experience. The new employees lack experience hence they are added burden on the family. The new employees need to be treated with great care. The employees who are retiring are big loss to the company as they have a lot of experience. (Huselid, 1995)
