INTRODUCTIONThe present report is based on different-different case. Employees are one of the mostimportant resources of any business, and so it is important for organisations to have a thoroughrecruitment and selection process. This is to ensure that the best possible candidate is recruited tothe post. There are many different aspects to consider during the recruitment and selection process,and this report considers the issues that an organisation should consider as they search forcandidates to recruit. Although in many organisations it is common for functional department headsto be involved in the process to ensure that technical considerations are assessed during recruitmentand selection.Task 1P 1 Identify how two organisations plan recruitment using internal and external sourcesLand RoverLand Rover is a British car manufacturer which specialises in four-wheel drive vehicles, andare famously renowned for the creation of ‘off-road’ vehicles such as the Defender, Freelander andnow more recently the exclusive Range Rover collection (Kehoe, and et.al., 2013).Why do vacancies occur at Land Rover?It is unlikely that Land Rover have a high labour turnover as the manufacturing of cars is acostly process.A member of staff is transferred to another Land Rover Showroom.If vacancies do for any of the above reasons occur within the business, Land Rover canchoose to recruit their staff internally or externally (Jabbour, and et.al. 2013).Internal and External sources used to recruitLand Rover recruits internally and externally, depending on the vacancy available. However,it is true that when recruiting internally, it saves time and it is a cost effective method to recruit, so itis likely that Land Rover would prefer to recruit internally, if they had the choice (Berman, andet.al., 2012).House of Fraser (HOF)House of Fraser is a British, national organisation within the retail industry, that sell an arrayof products under 5 main departments in-store store from Handbags to Televisions to Make-up andMen’s Shoes (Thunnissen, and et.al., 2013).
Reason Why vacancy occursAt House of Fraser, there is a great labour turnover, and currently there are5,200 HOFemployees and 11,000 concession staff. However, it can occur that employees leave for reason suchas:Long-term sickness, which would require a temporary employee to cover the position untilthe member of staff is able to work again (Cherian, and et.al., 2013.).In these cases, HOF would need to employ new members of staff to fill these positions sothat no loss is made to the store financially or physically in terms of stockInternal and External sources used to recruitHOF usually recruits internally, as this is a cost-effective and time-saving method. If theychoose to advertise internally, posters are situated within the staff room and locker room whereemployees are most likely to see the advertisements. However, they do also advertise theirvacancies clearly on their intranet site for current employees if they wish to look, but thesevacancies can also be found by members of the public ‘externally’ on the House Of Fraser websitetoo which is also a fairly cheap process as it does not require a third party input, which wouldusually be a job centre or newspaper, who could advertise on behalf of the company (Hur, 2013).TASK 2P 2 Explain the impact of the legal and regulatory framework on recruitment and selectionactivities.The Race Relations Act 1976:-(amended 1996, 2000 and 2003) makes similar provisionsin regard to colour, race, nationality or ethnic or national origin.TheSex Discrimination Act 1975:-(amended 1986) makes it unlawful to discriminate –directly or indirectly –between the sexes in recruitment policy, job advertisements and applicationforms. This includes discrimination on the grounds of change of sex and marital status.The Disability Discrimination Act 1995:-Makes it unlawful to discriminate against adisabled person in deciding whom to interview or whom to employ or in the terms of anemployment offer (Kehoe, and et.al., 2013).The Employment Equality Regulations 2003:-Make similar provision in regard to sexualorientation, religion and beliefA disabled person is defined as a person who has a physical or mental impairment that has asubstantial and long-term (more than 12 months) effect on his or her ability to carry out normal day-
