9 UNCOVERING the SECRETS of HRM Things Your HR Manager Doesn’t Tell You We’re short-staffed and under pressure too. We’re not always going to be able to help in the way you hope. We can help you move up the career ladder. What you post on Facebook can get you on Facebook LG1 Working with People is Just the Beginning Source: Smart Money, May

10 DEVELOPING the FIRM’S ULTIMATE RESOURCE Service and high-tech manufacturing requires employees with highly technical job skills. Developing the Firm’s Ultimate Resource Such workers are scarce, making recruiting and retention more important and more difficult. The human resource job is now the job of all managers in an organization. LG

11 CHALLENGES in FINDING HIGH-LEVEL WORKERS A shortage of trained workers in key areas Worker shortage in skilled trades An increasing number of baby boomers who delay retirement A declining economy with fewer full-time jobs Expanding global markets with low-wage workers Increasing benefit demands and benefit costs A decreased sense of employee loyalty The Human Resource Challenge LG

12 CIVIL RIGHTS ACT of 1964 Title VII prohibits discrimination in hiring, firing, compensation, apprenticeships, training, terms, conditions or privileges of employment based on:  Race  Religion  Creed  Sex  Age  National Origin Laws Affecting Human Resource Management LG

13 1972 EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY ACT (EEOA) Strengthened the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Gave EEOC the right to issue workplace guidelines for acceptable employer conduct. EEOC could mandate specific recordkeeping procedures. EEOC was vested with the power of enforcement. LG2 Laws Affecting Human Resource Management 11-13

14 CONTROVERSIAL PROCEDURES of the EEOC Affirmative Action -- Policy designed to “right past wrongs” by increasing opportunities for minorities and women. Reverse Discrimination -- Discriminating against members of a dominant or majority group (e.g. whites or males) usually as a result of policies designed to correct previous discrimination against minority or disadvantaged groups. This policy has been at the center of many debates and lawsuits. LG2 Laws Affecting Human Resource Management 11-14

15 CIVIL RIGHTS ACT of 1991 and OFCCP Civil Rights Act of 1991  Amended Title VII and gave victims of discrimination the right to a jury trial and possible damages. Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP)  Ensures that employers doing business with the federal government comply with the nondiscrimination and affirmative action laws. LG2 Laws Affecting Human Resource Management 11-15

16 LAWS PROTECTING EMPLOYEES with DISABILITIES Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA)  Requires employers to give applicants with physical or mental disabilities the same consideration for employment as people without disabilities.

LG

17 AGE DISCRIMINATION in EMPLOYMENT ACT (ADEA) Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA)  Protects workers 40 and over from employment and workplace discrimination in hiring, firing, promotion, layoff, compensation, benefits, job assignments and training. LG2 Laws Protecting Employees with Disabilities and Older Employees 11-17

18 MINDING the LAW in HRM Employers must know the law and act accordingly. Legislation affects all areas of HRM. Court cases highlight that sometimes it’s proper to go beyond providing equal rights. Changes in law and legislation occur regularly. Effects of Legislation LG

19 The MILLION WOMAN SUIT AGAINST WALMART (Legal Briefcase) Over 1 million women filed suit against Walmart for gender dominance in the store’s management ranks. The case charged that not only did the company leapfrog over women for leadership roles, it engaged in pay inequality and harassment. The Supreme Court dismissed the class-action suit

20 PROGRESS ASSESSMENT What’s human resource management? What did Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 achieve? What’s the EEOC and what was the intention of affirmative action? What does accommodations mean in the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990? Progress Assessment 11-20

21 HUMAN RESOURCE PLANNING PROCESS Determining a Firm’s Human Resource Needs 1) Preparing a human resource inventory of employees. 2) Preparing a job analysis. 3) Assessing future human resource demand. 4) Assessing future labor supply. 5) Establishing a strategic plan. LG

22 WHAT’S a JOB ANALYSIS? Job Analysis – A study of what employees do who hold various job titles. Job Description – A summary of the objectives of the job, the type of work, the responsibilities and duties, working conditions and relationship to other jobs. Job Specifications -- A summary of the minimum qualifications needed to do a particular job. LG3 Determining a Firm’s Human Resource Needs 11-22

23 RECRUITING EMPLOYEES Recruiting Employees from a Diverse Population Recruitment -- The set of activities for obtaining the right number of qualified people at the right time. Human resource managers use both internal and external sources to recruit employees. Small businesses often make use of web sources like CareerBuilder and Monster to recruit employees.CareerBuilderMonster LG

24 IT’S NOT EASY BEING SMALL (Spotlight on Small Business) To survive, small businesses must recruit and retain qualified workers. Unfortunately, they lack the resources of larger companies to compete for employees. Small businesses need innovations like:  Letting staff help recruit and select candidates.  “Test-drive” an employee.  Seek out publicity through local media

25 EMPLOYEE SOURCES Recruiting Employees from a Diverse Population LG

26 SELECTION Selecting Employees Who Will be Productive Selection -- The process of gathering information and deciding who should be hired, under legal guidelines, to serve the best interest of the individual and the organization. LG

27 STEPS in the SELECTION PROCESS 1. Obtaining complete application forms 2. Conducting initial and follow-up interviews 3. Giving employment tests 4. Conducting background investigations 5.

29 HIRING CONTINGENT WORKERS Hiring Contingent Workers Contingent Workers -- Include part-time and temporary workers, seasonal workers, independent contractors, interns and co-op students. There are about 5.7 million contingent workers in the U.S. Majority of contingent workers are under 25. LG

30 WHY HIRE CONTINGENT WORKERS? Companies hire contingent workers:  When full-time workers are on leave  During periods of peak demand  In uncertain economic times  To save on employee benefits  To screen candidates for future employment LG5 Hiring Contingent Workers 11-30

31 STUDENTS and the CONTINGENT WORKFORCE With temporary staffing agencies, companies have easier access to screened workers. Worker information is entered into their databases. LG5 Hiring Contingent Workers When students come back to town, they can call the agency and ask them to put their names into the system for work

32 ARE UNPAID INTERNS TOO INTERRED? (Making Ethical Decisions) With few entry-level positions available, interns can end up in an unpaid position for as long as six months with no chance of advancement. Some businesses give interns lots of responsibility; a Toronto paper fired all paid staff and replaced them with unpaid interns. Is it ethical for companies to use unpaid interns if they know they don’t have jobs to offer or if the unpaid internships replace paid jobs? 11-32

33 PROGRESS ASSESSMENT Progress Assessment What are the five steps in human resource planning? What factors make it difficult to recruit qualified employees? What are the six steps in the selection process? Who is considered a contingent worker, and why do company hire such workers? 11-33

40 APPRAISING PERFORMANCE on the JOB Appraising Employee Performance to Get Optimum Results Performance Appraisal -- An evaluation that measures employee performance against established standards in order to make decisions about promotions, compensation, training or termination. A 360-degree review gives managers opinions from people at different levels to get a more accurate idea of the worker’s ability. LG

56 FLEXIBLE SCHEDULING PLANS Flextime Plan -- Gives employees some freedom to choose which hours to work as long as they work the required number of hours or complete their tasks. Compressed Work Week -- Employees work the full number of work hours, but in fewer than the standard number of days. Job Sharing -- Lets two or more part-time employees share on a full-time job. LG9 Flextime Plans 11-56

57 USING FLEXTIME PLANS Flextime Plans Most flextime plans require Core Time -- When all employees are expected to be at their job stations. Flextime is difficult to incorporate into shift work and managers have to work longer hours. Communication among employees can also be difficult under flextime and managers have to be alert to any system abuses. LG

65 TERMINATING EMPLOYEES Terminating Employees As the economic crisis grew, more and more employers have had to lay off employees. Even when the economy is booming, employers are hesitant to hire full-time workers because of the cost of termination. Firing employees is more difficult for employers because of laws preventing termination for certain acts. LG
