classifying employees
Classifying Employees
  • The company must decide whether the person to be hired will be permanent (one whom the company makes a long-term commitment) or temporary ( one hired for a specific time or to complete a specific assignment).
  • Because permanent employees feel that they are a part of the business, they are often more productive than temporary employees.
determining job requirements
Determining Job Requirements
  • Before starting the hiring process, human resources staff studies the work that must be done in the job.
  • Specific information about each job is needed in order to hire people with the right skills.
  • That information is often collected by completing a job analysis.
the application process
The Application Process
  • Most companies ask prospective applicants to fill out an employee application.
  • The applications gather personal information, information on education, and work experience history.
  • It may also ask for specific skills related to the job and contact information for people who can serve as references.
new employee orientation
New Employee Orientation
  • The final step in the hiring process is to help the new employee get a good start in the company.
  • As a part of the orientation, the new employee will meet with human resources specialists to complete all of the paperwork needed to receive pay and benefits. In turn, the company will have a complete employee record.
the evaluation process
The Evaluation Process
  • Performance evaluations focus on the specific job duties of each employee.
  • They also review the important work qualities expected of all employees.
  • Those qualities include factors such as communication, interpersonal relationships, quality and quantity of work , and ethical behavior.
the evaluation conference
The Evaluation Conference
  • After the manager completes the evaluation form, a conference is scheduled with the employee.
  • The purpose of the conference is to review and discuss the results of the evaluation and to plan for any needed performance improvement.
  • Often, both the manager and employee are concerned about the conference.
