Chapter 12 The Human Resource Business Process Review Questions R1. What is the primary objective of the human resource process? The primary objective of the human resource business process is to provide and pay for the human labor and expertise that an organization needs to function efficiently and effectively. R2. How is the human resource process related to the conversion process, the sales/collection process, the acquisition/payment process, and the financing process? The human resource process makes labor available to all of those other processes. Usually the use of the labor is only tracked in the conversion process, although sometimes labor use is tracked in the other processes. The cash used to obtain the labor in the human resource process is typically made available by the financing process. R3. What is the difference between a timecard and a job time ticket? A timecard is used to indicate total hours worked by an employee during a specified time period. Timecards include all hours worked, whether or not they can be tracked to a specific task or job. Timecards are used to represent labor acquisition. A job time ticket is used to indicate time worked on a specific job or production run by an employee in a conversion process or by an employee performing a service engagement in a service-oriented revenue process. Only time that can be tracked to a specific job, production run, or service engagement should be recorded. Job time tickets are used to indicate the using up of labor. R4. Which functions in the human resource process are typically thought of as personnel functions, and which functions are typically thought of as payroll functions? The personnel function hires, trains, evaluates, and terminates employees. The payroll function disburses payments to employees.
