Competitive Games - . Google Code Jam is an international programming competition hosted and administered by Google. The competition began in 2003 as a means to identify top engineering talent for potential employment at Google Environment of Recruitment - ØLabor market conditions (supply and demand for skill) ØActive or passive job seekers ØLegal considerations(Essential to emphasize nondiscriminatory practices, U.S. Department of Labor has issued guidelines concerning online recruiting policies) Labor Department - must keep detailed records of each online job search. They must also identify what selection criteria were used and be able to explain why a person with protected status was not hired. Threshold coverage is 50 employees if dealing with OFCCP ØEnables compilation of demographic data ØEmployers must keep records of any and all expressions of interest through the Internet Even when there is a need for additional employees, a firm may decide against increasing the size of its regular workforce. Alternatives such as outsourcing and offshoring, contingent workers, employee leasing, and overtime may all be considered before recruiting new full-time employees. Promotion from within is filling vacancies above entry-level positions with current employees instead of outside hires. When an organization emphasizes promotion from within, employees have an incentive to strive for advancement, so this practice often improves employee morale. Onshoring involves moving jobs not to another country but to lower cost American cities. Reshoring is the reverse of offshoring and involves bringing work back to the United States. Advocates of reshoring believe that manufacturers should calculate the real impact of offshoring because there are often hidden expenses such as higher costs for travel, packaging, shipping, and inventory. CHAPTER 6 Employee Selection - .

    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.
