In the business world of different sectors (be it government or non-government) recruitment is inevitable as every step in this sphere depends on selection of effective work-force.
Employees as well as higher executives need to be selected through tests/interviews to find a right match with the smooth operation and accomplishment of the organizational goals and objectives. Functions relating to administering the business including recruitment and termination of employees cannot be attained without proper management of human resource.

Fayol’s Work from Two Different Points of View

...earliest and influential thinkers in modern management theory. He defined management as a body of knowledge and defined his 14 administrative principles. It is an interesting exercise to apply Fayol’s teachings to the theory of zero tolerance and attempt to determine what Fayol would think of this new management technique. Keywords: Management, Fayol, zero tolerance, administration. JEL classification: B10, L20. Introduction Zero tolerance is a management technique that is finding its way into many of the administration policies of organizations, including the school systems in the United States. Administrative decrees declare that this organization with have zero tolerance for weapons or illegal drugs, or sexual harassment. Administrators often endorse zero tolerance as it makes a strong statement of organizational discipline and takes little discretion which may be criticized. Critics of zero tolerance claim it is ineffective and leads to random punishments such as 10 year olds suspended for 365 days because her mother packed a knife in her lunch to use to cut up her apple. When she opened her lunchbox she immediately turned it in to her teacher but was still suspended‘(American Psychological Association Zero Tolerance Task Force). What would the early theorist of management thought think of this? The man that first defined management, indeed that there was a special skill we could call management, was a French mining company executive from the 1800’s named Henri Fayol.......

Ehec Outbreak from an Organizational Point of View

...USA). Remained at the state of project (EU’s EO2HEAVEN project). ➢ Task-force (Which currently do not exist anymore) ➢ Establishment of a super central authority (which could have been embodied by the Robert Koch Institut) Critical point of view According to Klotter’s last two steps, the crisis led to some improvement, which should be internalized in order to enhance the approach for future cases. As it is stated in the text no solution can be found to solve every crisis, the emphasis should therefore be put on the flexibility of the structure and its ability to adapt itself quickly. In order to do that we would have let each organization operate its daily routine as long as there were no crisis, that way, we would have avoid the overload with irrelevant information of the federal and international organizations. But as soon as the outbreak occurred, the laboratories would have been accountable directly to the task-force. The time gained that way could have been used to control if the assumptions concerning the vehicle of the disease were correct or not, avoiding thereby any public out cry, like with the Spanish cucumbers. The issue is that German legal framework constrains to include every single authority in the process....

...7 Steps to Effective Recruitment Having the right person, in the right place, at the right time, is crucial to organisational performance. Therefore recruitment is a critical activity and should incorporate the following steps: Step 1 - What’s the job? Gather information about the nature of the job. Think about:  The content (such as the tasks) making up the job  The job’s purpose  The outputs required by the job holder  How it fits into the organisation’s structure  The skills and personal attributes needed to perform the role effectively. This analysis can form the basis of a job description and person specification.

Increasingly such specifications are based on a set of competencies identified as necessary for the performance of the job. Include:  skills, aptitude, knowledge and experience  qualifications (which should be only those necessary to do the job - unless candidates are recruited on the basis of future potential , for example graduates)  personal qualities relevant to the job, such as ability to work as part of a team.

Second Generation from a Chinese Point of View

...Immigration is the arrival of new individuals into a new environment or population. Immigration is a process that happens every day, but there is a side effect of immigration that is observed between the parents (first generation) and their children (second generation). In history, during the nineteenth century, Chinese travel to America for financial solutions, with hopes to return to their home with money. As time moves ahead, Chinese immigrants to America searching for a better life, for instance, my parents immigrated to America, who then conceived us as the second generation. With pressure from the parents, children of the second generation were forced to perfect both the American and Chinese culture to their very best. The second generation Chinese Americans were American born, but were still outcasts of the American society because of their skin color. The lives of the children of immigrants who immigrated to America have had stressful impacts from their parents and society because of their parent’s expectations of a perfect child who succeeds in school, and the society’s rejection of their ethnicity. From the old days until now, millions of people around the world have decided to immigrate to the United States in search of a better life. The reason why Chinese people immigrated to America due to the rumors of opportunity to gain higher wages jobs within America which would help support their families who were struggling to survive in China.

Can There Be a Thought About the World That Is Not from Any Point of View

...‘Can there be a thought about the world that is not from any point of view?’ Physical Concepts of Objectivity and Mental Concepts of objectivity. The first type of thought about the world that Nagel looks at in his hunt for a view of the world that is from no point of view, is the traditional reductionist idea of objectivity, this is the idea that in order for something to be said to exist in reality it must be able to be reduced to something physical. Ignoring secondary qualities that are manifested in our points of view or as Nagel puts it relegating the ‘perceptual aspects’ to the mind, ‘a yet-to-be-examined domain.’ The underlying motivation for a Physicalist conception of objectivity according to Nagel is to think of the world as something that is ‘really there’ , it is the desire to think about the world so that we can understand everything in it in the same way, as actually existing not merely existing in how it appears to us. The formulation of a conception of objectivity that leads to a Physicalist conclusion according to Nagel takes three steps; the first is to hold that our perceptions are caused by the objects that exist in the external world having an effect upon our physical bodies that exist alongside the physical objects in the physical world. In other words the perceptions of the world that we have are not phenomenally arrived at but instead are in some way influenced by the actions of objects. The next commitment for the Physicalist is to hold that the...

Fayol’s Work from Two Different Points of View’s view on Fayol’s, Mintzberg’s and Taylor’s theories. Classical management theory is a school of management thought in which theorists delved into how to find the best possible way for workers to perform their tasks.
