INTRODUCTIONBusiness organisations can experience tremendous growth when a systematic flow isapplied for execution of the business operations. Information technology has been one of theattributes which have been helpful in providing a new perspective to business processes. In thisreport, the basic principles of management have been depicted in the form of staff recruitmentpolicy and the theories which can be applied for motivating and encouraging employees.Furthermore, software management tools that will support the administration and planning ofissues and problems of Accenture have been depicted in this report. Businesses can functioneffortlessly only when strategic planning is supported and there is effective implementation bythe organisation. Lastly, the developments or progresses which have taken place in the field ofinformation technology have also been depicted in this report with elaboration about the impactand importance of the same.TASK 1P1.1 Staff recruitment policyEvery business organisation has some policy and procedure which is defined forrecruiting and selecting individuals. Accenture has a strict but clearly defined structure for thesame. The staff recruitment policy helps in creating specific guidelines which need to befollowed when devising job descriptions, person specification and other details regarding aparticular job profile (Hall, 2014). Furthermore, there is no scope for any sort of unethicalpractises or discrimination in the recruitment process from company's end. Equality, diversityand inclusion are three attributes which are included in the organisation's recruitment policy.Often there are situations when individuals are hired for the company just because of theirreferral or the preference of manager because of personal relations (Townley, 2014). Such kindof allowances are not provided by Accenture.Discrimination on the basis of sex, age, gender, disability, religion and beliefs, etc. is notentertained when considering recruitment and selection of individuals. There are two types ofdiscrimination i.e. direct and indirect (Wallace, Lings and Sheldon, 2014). The impact of boththese is significantly negative and the organisation has to bear the cost in terms of loss ofproductivity and reduced efficiency. Hence, staff recruitment policy is formulated in such a way
that individuals do not experience any sort of biasness and discrimination at the workplace. Theadvertisements and details in the same are also regulated with help of staff recruitment policies.There are terms and conditions that clearly depict the rules and regulations of the organisationand the lines of code of conduct which need to be followed by each and every individual whenproviding their services in the company (Miner, 2015).Staff recruitment policy also includes the details regarding the submission of applicationforms which will further instigate the recruitment process. The closing date and the timescalesare also depicted in these policies but are updated according to the need of situation. Interviewprocess is depicted in a structured format (Employee Documentation.2017.). The arrangementsprocesses which are involved the recruitment and selection procedure i.e. the interview areclearly stated with specifications related with logistics, working hours, eligibility, flexibility inpay, etc. henceforth, it can be stated that the staff recruitment policy acts an important source ofinformation for the individuals that are appearing for the recruitment process and also for theorganisation that has prepared it.P1.2 Theories for staff motivation and change managementEmployees or the human resource is the most important asset for the company unless it isfully utilised for the benefits of organisation. Accenture has to maintain its market reputation andbrand image that has been built up due to years of strategic planning and development. There is acontinuous requirement of implementing staff motivation and change management plans so thatproductivity and efficiency of the company is not affected (Pinder, 2014). Following are themotivational theories which can be applied in the governance of Accenture to enhance the staffmotivation levels.Hertzberg's two factor theory:Motivation and hygiene are the two factors which are responsible or helpful in increasingthe motivation levels of employees. Satisfaction is achieved when individuals feel that theirservice or work is fruitful in some fashion. On the other hand, hygiene is a factor whichdetermines the elements that can cause dissatisfaction or deteriorate the motivation levels ofemployees (Guillén, Ferrero and Hoffman, 2015). The Hertzberg's theory helps in implementingstrategies that enhance the willingness of staff to work for the organisation and get appreciatedfor their respective deeds.4
