Edwards discussion Reply- Employers put hr in place to manage their funds, which means they need to find ways to save the company money when it comes to purchasing supplies, along with hiring and training employees. While they have the role of hiring candidates, their relationship only exists with their boss which is the ceo or executive, and employees do not like that.
“Recruitment and selection can play a pivotal role in shaping an organization’s effectiveness and performance, if organizations are able to acquire workers who already possess relevant knowledge, skills and aptitudes (Dahie & Mohamed, 2017, p. 80). Hr can act as a strategic partner if they are allowed to judge the character of an employee instead of just solely basing it off their skill set. Most companies do not cross train employees who may have the potential to benefit the company because they believe it will have to use more time and money to train an individual with no experience even though they already work for the company. An outside candidate can get hired more easily if they already have the experience needed for the position, despite the internal employee having proved his or her employee morale. Human resources can act as strategic partner if employers hire individuals in that department that has other skill backgrounds besides human resources which will enhance creativity and have a better relationship with the employees. The ceo can then decrease outsourcing and allow an organization to reach its full potential by way of hiring hr workers with different skills. References
