wahoo! someone else who is doing it!

I am stuck on the first part..the role of human resrouces in Scottish Newcastle....

I've managed to write about the selection process and how they release job specs and briefs. and that is about it.

Oh and i have done some notes on training and how it affects the company.

HRM is more than just personnel. Its about workforce planning and making sure that the business has the adequate workforce with the appropriate skills for future requirements. Its about planning ahead.

thanks...my tutor has done all these notes and set out tasks for us which is making it easier for me.

1. The selection process.
2. Looking at their performance.
3. Appraisal of their performance, based on findings from step 2.
4. Rewards based on step 3.
5. Development of new training for new employees.


these are the sections i have ti talk about....any ideas?

Have you talked about the selection process? If a firm hires the right type of person then there is no need to train them if they possess the right skills, therefore disruption to production is minimised.

HRM also has to constantly think about the different job roles and the structure of the business. Let us say for example, that john who has been with a business for over 15 years and is about to retire, his previous role was in finance, now that he is retiring we have to look ti the future. If the business plans to expand into Europe, should we hire somebody who can speak 'French' for example?

Also, when yo speak about Training. I believe you have to link it back to the motivation theorists. Job enlargement is arguably crap, due to more jobs but on the same level. For example Maslow argued that in his Hierarchy of Needs, a person needs to satisfy bith their 'Esteem needs' and complete 'Self-Actualisation', what this translates to is that, perhaps Job Enrichment is more appropriate, as a person is given more responsibility and completeing jobs at a higher level.

I don't do AVCE... but I suggest you look at the different between Soft HRM and Hard HRM.

I've just started Unit 4, we had a teacher walk out so were are a bit behind!
I can't find any company that will give me information, what companies did you all use?

(p.s. if anyone wants to throw a complete Unit 4 at me I wouldn't complain )
