SCAN realizes that organizations are gradually outsourcing more and more of their recruitments because they find it more cost effective to give the total recruitment assignment (e.g. Job designing, advertisement, application receiving, short-listing, and communication, Test or Interview etc.) to a third party. SCAN is qualified in conducting these functions as a specialty skill. At the same time, RCL ensure neutrality, confidentiality, and biased free selection.

So, they gradually prefer to seek jobs thru SCAN as we are neutral and help them develop all of the above skills and work as their exclusive agents.

Having a recruitment agent like SCAN provides even more cost effectiveness and leverage – when the job market expands beyond the National boundary for both the Organization and the Job Seekers.

SCAN also takes into consideration the business environment of the country of operation and the rest of the relevant countries in the world.

Define HRM:

Human Resource Management is the set of organization activities directed at attracting, developing and maintaining an effective work force. ———-By Ricky W. Griffin

The policies and practices involved in carrying out the people or human resource aspects of a management position including recruiting, screening, training, rewarding and appraising— BY  Gray Dessler

Function of HRM:

Human Resource management performs quite a few useful functions in order to achieve its objectives these functions have been categorized be — and Robins al:

  1. Acquisition:

The acquisition function begins with HR planning. Relative to human resource requirements, we need to know where we are going and how we are going to get there. This includes the estimation of demands and supplies of labor. Acquisition also includes the recruitment, selection and socialization of employees.

  1. Development:

The development function can be viewed along three dimensions. The first is employee training, which emphasizes skill development and the charging of attitudes among workers. The second is management development, which concerns – primarily with knowledge acquisition and the enhancement of an executive’s conceptual abilities. The third is career development, which is the continual effort to match long-term individuals and organizational needs.

  1. Motivation:

The motivation function creates an inner urge to perform and begins with the recognition that individuals are unique and that motivation techniques must reflect the needs of each individual. Within the motivation function, alienation, job satisfaction, performance appraisal, behavioral and structural techniques for stimulating worker performance, the importance of linking rewards to performance, compensation and benefits administration and how to handle problem employees are reviewed.

  1. Maintenance:

The final function is maintenance. In contrast to the motivation function, which attempts to stimulate performance the maintenance function is concerned with providing those working conditions that employees believe are necessary in order to maintain their commitment to the organization.

 

Human Resource planning and policies:

Planning means setting the organizational goals and deciding how best to achieve them. The bridge between HR strategies and HR functions is the formulation of human resource plans that incorporate the desired outcomes of HR strategies, are responsive to continual changes in the organizational environments, and can be operated through efficient and effective HR functions.

Human Resource planning is one of the most important elements in successful HRM program. Human Resource Planning is a little like navigating a ship, it decides on a course and speed towards destinations with the constant need to take further readings and make necessary adjustment in order to reach that destination. The purpose of Human Resource Planning (HRP) is to ensure organizational objectives through the effective utilization of human resources of the organization. Human Resource Planning (HRP) is essentially an ongoing process, focused on the long term, but cognizant of contemporary changes in both the internal and external environments in which the organization operates.

The human resource planning is the process by which an organization ensures that it has the right numbers and kinds of people at the right places at the right time who are capable of completing his/her task effectively and efficiently, and that will help the organization to achieve its overall objectives.

Interstoff Apparels Ltd. does both short term and long term planning for the wellbeing of the organization.

Short term planning is about:

  • Participation
  • Developing Care Skills
  • Implementation etc

Long term planning is about:

  • Forecasting
  • Organizational Development

Recruitment:

Recruitment is the process of attempting to locate and encourage potential applicants to apply for existing or anticipated job openings. Recruitment strategies attempt to create a poll of appropriately qualified and experienced people so that selection strategies and decisions can be initiated.

The recruitment process typically yields a number of applicants whose qualifications must be assessed against the recruitments of the job the intent of the selection process is to gather form applicants information that will predict their job success and than to hire the candidates likely to he must successful

An organization can go for internal source or external source or both to meet organization needs of human resource.

CONDUCTING TNA

TNA in essence…

Step 1: Define the problem

Describe Discrepancy

Desired Performance (Optimal) -Actual Performance (Actual) =Possible Training Need

Step 2: Is it important?

  • Why is it important?
  • What if you did nothing?
  • How big is it? (Quantify if possible)
  • Who cares?

Is the cost of the discrepancy high enough that it seems worth pursuing a solution?

If the answer is no…..REJOICE

Step 3: Determine Cause(s)

Is it a problem of skill? or

A problem of will?

Yes, it is a skill deficiency

If it is a skills of deficiency.

  • Provide training
  • Provide practice
  • Provide feedback
  • Simplify the task
  • Develop a job aid
  • OJT
  • Transfer
  • Terminate

Yes, it is a problem of will…

And one last question…

Step 4: To train or not to train?

  • First determine cause (s)
  • Only then look at possible solutions
  • Seek integrated solution systems that get to the root of the problem

Evaluation of Training:

  • Reaction: how did trainees respond to the program? Did they find it stimulating, relevant, and of practical use; or did they find it dull, tedious and of no relevance to their work roles?
  • Change: were there changes in attitude, or increments in performance or knowledge as a result of attending the course?
  • Application: have observed changes resulted in improved performance on the job?
  • Results: has there been a change in work section or organisation performance as a result of the application of learned skills or attitudes to the work situation?

Remember, training is not what is ultimately important… PERFORMANCE is.”—- Marc Rosenberg

“Remember, THE MAGIC QUESTION of TNA –

WHAT WILL THE TRAINEES BE ABLE TO DO AT THE END OF THE TRAINING?”

Other Solution For Manage Our Time:

  1. 10 mints standing meeting every day in morning for share information and update all the team members about our activities.
  2. To-Do Lists. Write a list of things that need to be done and then do them in that order. They can be distinguished from Checklists that are wonderful for breaking a project down into smaller tasks that can be ticked off regularly. Also a suggestion that instead of writing everything on the to-do list and making a big list – write down what is Important that needs to be done.
  3. Prioritization. This is pretty simple – you write down the list of things you have to do and then put them in order of priority. Then you do them in that order. What you may do is have priority for office tasks, home chores, emergencies and make separate priority lists for different projects.
  4. “Do it now”. A journey of thousand miles begins with the first simple step. So Act NOW. A favorite with people who handle a lot of paper – this is basically a preventative measure for procrastination. If you need to do action something, you do it now. It’s very good for procrastinators, routines and tasks which are vital for function. Be Cautious where there are a lot of different aspects which need equal attention, as here you can end up spending all your time on one area as you have to “do it now”!
  5. “Do the thing you fear most first”. “Do the things you fear and the fear will disappear?” A form of prioritization, this is also good for procrastinators as it has a great kernel of truth in it, in terms of the fact that once the most-feared thing is done, the rest will be easier in comparison. Very good for personal growth and conquering fears and phobias.
  6. Scheduling. Prepare to put things in your list with time lines attached and then you take action on them according to the time. At times it may be difficult to estimate the exact length of time something will take, and doesn’t take interruptions, delays and other unexpected issues into account, so you need to also take some time for contingencies or failures.

While all of these are very useful in particular situations, and for particular people, they often work best in combination with each other. Individual tools just don’t work on a consistent basis.

 

Alternative Solution:

  1. Talent mapping.
  2. Build a Network with HR Professional.(like join a HR-ADDA)
  3. Build an own categorize based database for quality CV’s throw e-mail address & upload system, not fill up the form.

 

Conclusion:

I have done my internship period in Renaissance consultancy Ltd and seen many events that have helped me to achieve practical experience about doing a particular job in any HR consultancy firm. It is an excellent opportunity to have an idea/knowledge a practical work in HR consultancy firm. There is a huge gap between the studying in a particular discipline and implementing it is the practical field. Every thing is not maintained according to the books. Renaissance consultancy Ltd. does have their own system to rum their business which sometime may very with the actual system written in the books.

Renaissance consultancy Ltd. is also trying of follow human resource management and regulates the human resource planning in their operation. In this regard Renaissance consultancy Ltd. is also trying to setup the strong and independent HRM system.
