optimal placement is possible. Thus, the number of people and the number of jobs determine the placement process in any organization. Placement Problems The difficulty with placement is that we tend to look at the individual but not at the job. Often, the individual does not work independent of others. Whether the employee works independent of others dependent depends on the types of jobs. Jobs in this context can be classified into the three categories: i. Independent (in such activities of one worker have little bearing on the activities of the other workers, here the placement is simple to conduct). ii. Sequential (activities of the workers are dependent on activities of a fellow worker example assembly line sequential jobs). iii. Pooled (where the job is high degree of independence among activities. The final output of is the result of contribution of all workers. It is team work which matters. Placement for this is quite difficult).

This is elaborated below: 1. Man should be placed on the job according to the requirements of the job. The job should not be adjusted according to the qualification or requirements of the man. Job first, man next, should be the principle of the placement. 2. The job should be offered to the person according to his qualification. This should neither the higher nor the lower than the qualification. 3. The employee should be made conversant with the working conditions prevailing in the organization and all things relating to the job. He should also be made aware of the penalties if he commits the wrong. 4. While introducing the job to the new employees, an effort should be made to develop a sense of loyalty and cooperation in him so that he may realize his responsibility better towards the job and organization. 56

5. The placement should be ready before the joining date of the newly selected person. 6. The placement in the initial period may be temporary as changes are likely after the completion of training. The employee may be later transferred to the job where he can do better. Proper placement helps to improve the employee’s morale. The capacity of the employees can be utilized fully. The right placement also reduces labour turnover, absenteeism and also accident rate. Than the employee can adjust to the required environment of the organization effectively and performance of the employee will not be hampered.
