Describe the eight steps of recruitment and selection (pp. 353–354). Why do they seem  unnecessarily rigorous and bureaucratic? Try simplifying or shortening the list. What dangers  could result from shortening the list? How do you make an unwieldy process like this effective  in a competitive marketplace? The eight steps of recruitment and selection are position control where you document the number of  approved employment positions. Job description where each position is described in detail.  Classification and compensation where wage, incentive, and benefit levels must be assigned to each  recruited position. Appliance pool priorities and advertising where policies cover affirmative action and  priority consideration of current and former employees for job openings. Initial screening where self- screening, exposing applicants to the mission, vision, and values of the organization and the detailed  job description, is used by leading organizations. Final selection is when the applicants who pass the  initial screening are subjected to more intensive review. Orientation is when the new associates should  learn the organizations mission and values, its policies to encourage their contribution and its supports  services. Probationary review is when the employee begins work with a probationary period.  They seem unnecessary because there are too many levels to get hired and it seems it would conflict  with many people getting a job. It also seems like if you know the right people you get the job and if not  you are put through hoops to get hired.  If I were to shorten the list I would say that you would only need position control, job description,  classification and compensation, final selection, and orientation.  Some dangers shortening the list could cause is hiring more people over a time period because they  were not selected in a thorough way which could also cause slow production and waste of money  because you have to continue to hire and train more people.  You can make this process effective in a competitive market by offering incentives and bonuses and  also by limiting the times you are looking to hire so that more people will be interested in getting a job

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
