Highlighting an issue:
I would like to thank you for helping me secure my position as a Content Strategist through your constant ‘get it done’ attitude. However, there are minor queries I have been facing in the recent times. Although these are not extremely detrimental to my performance, they do affect it by even a smaller degree. Charlie, I would like you to revise the works of our junior writers and in fact i wish to speak for them. As a part of their daily work load, they are required to present and produce at least 4 articles on miscellaneous themes and writing subtitles for movies launched recently.
Although we have proper division of employees according to their performance and their background, sometimes it becomes hectic for them to manage writing six different writings within a day. The brain suffers from a word blockage and this in turn leads to quality deterioration. I would advise you to look into matter and provide them work according to their capabilities in order to help them retain their performance abilities. Plus, i would like to attract your attention to the requirement for two more writers especially skilled in doing SEOs and keyword researching. Again their work should be divided equally so that they do not feel overburdened.
Aziz, Content Strategist, XYZ Media
Operational plans and operational policies for recruitment:
The company feels the need to recruit employees for its new branches or for its own expansion. Thus recruitment procedures might not be necessary to be continued if the company is relatively smaller and thus don’t have a strong employee base. There are costs of running recruitment policies especially if it's a smaller company. Larger enterprises have numerous branches all over the world and distance is not a bar for those who are already qualified enough for a particular post. The cost of hiring HR managers and making them understand the company's requirements needs time and effort. Operation costs for recruitment thus vary according to the company's needs. When it's not hiring, costs are zero. In general the company carries out its annual recruitment program on January every year. The whole procedure lasts not more than a month. Current employees are often asked to aid in the recruitment processes since they have already gathered the experience.
Organizational recruitment policy
Organisational recruitment policies differ from institution to institution and it depends on various factors most of which are applicable for larger companies. When an employee retires or leaves, the company loses the net produce earlier produced by the employee. It is the duty of then company to recruit new people in that position or create an additional position depending on the work load and the requirements. Workload is not the same throughout the year, thus the requirement for an additional worker also changes with time. Sometimes companies choose to hire workers on a contractual basis. This is to handle the additional load which the existing employees are finding difficult to handle.
Technology and recruitment process
Technology plays a major role in aiding the HR managers in initiating the recruitment processes. Online manage recruitment selectionand online interviews have made their position when it comes to recruiting on a short notice. It is easier to post an online advertisement of the requirements, the necessary qualifications list and a ‘how to apply’ list. With the ease of job hunting online, it is easier for candidates to look for open positions based on their chosen designations, years of experience (if any) and expected compensation. With the advent of social media, companies are also posting their requirements online on social media sites such as LinkedIn and Facebook. This helps the potential candidates to stay connected to the job market thanks to the automatic notifications that inform them of a new opening. Without technology, the process would have been lengthier and it would have been difficult to maintain an account of all the treatments and compare/judge their problem-solving skills in the real work environment.
Communication of information via policies and procedures
As a continuation of the previous heading, it is easier for the administration to communicate information all the way to their employees using technology. With the popularity of smartphones and social networking ability, companies are increasingly using social media to communicate information based on changes in their working pattern or the need to adhere to stricter deadlines during peak workload hours. The authority might also wish to learn about the performance trend of its most valuable employees from their respective team leaders. This helps them keep an eye on the internal improvement assessing performed by the employees. Improvisation and subsequent innovation are keys to stand out in the crowd; communication procedures helps the employees hone their own skills and recognize their talent in the growing work environment. Thus I advise the team leaders to allow employees use their social network accounts for communicating with them on a real time basis. Information can also be shared easily without physical meeting.
