Feb 2nd Class Reflection

In class todays we finished up the talks on chapter 5 with a discussion on handling labor shortages and what options there are. Each option has its advantages and disadvantages and a lot of it depends on the reason you are in a shortage. It is is a short term shortage (temporary project) then overtime, temp workers, or outsourcing might be the best options. If it looks to be permanent or longer term then the HRM/Company can look at new hires, technology advances to improve efficiency, and other methods. To do new hires you will need to look at recruiting options. There are many different methods and again it depends on the quality and knowledge of employee you are looking for.
We then started talking about chapter 6 and personnel selection. This is the process of deciding you need to hire and actually hiring. You need to know what you are looking for before you begin and the general goal is to find the right fit for the company. To illustrate how this works we watched a clip from Oceans Eleven.
