  • Anti-discrimination act 1977
  • The equality act 2010

Recruitment and Selection Policy and Procedure

In order to develop right recruitment and selection policy then it is required to address the following areas.

Vacant position analysis: the healthcare united analyze the vacant position through the job analysis or conduct internal research in order to find the vacant job position. This practice is performed in each department such as marketing, finance, human resource, and production etc (Zhao & Liden, 2011).

Position descriptions:- It includes the details about the job role and the qualifications that require to carry out the job responsibility. At the same time, the approval of top management is also important before taking the future step.

Advertisements and promotions:- The company needs to use the current technology for the job promotion. However, digital platform is the trending currently at global market. This is the best way to attract talent workforce (Professional) towards the brand. Other than that, print media advertisement is another tool to make people aware of the job position.

Shortlisting:- The shortlisting work tends to perform by the human resources department with the administration department (Caers and Castelyns, 2011). This policy is developed in 2016 only with the aim to overcome the favoritism and biases at the workplace. This practice can help to pool the skilled and qualified candidate in the workplace.

Interview preparation: – Interview preparation is the essential activity and it is performed by the HR department with the executives. Such combination would help to conduct systematic or organized interview session. The interview would be developed as per the company policy which reduces the chances of misunderstanding.

Interviewing applicants:- In this, the applicants are interviewed in the boardroom in order to create the professional environment. For this, enough investment company spends and it also proves to be valuable for the company (Bhoganadam & Rao, 2014). It would help the company to reflect the professional atmosphere to the candidate and allows them to perceive positive from the ambiances.

References checks:- The process of references check is important for the HR manager so that they can judge the background of the individual. This will help the company to identify whether the selected employee is suited well to the organization.

Job offers:- There is the certain procedure that company follows when they decide to whom they want to recruit. It involves the checking of all the documents of the individual. Afterwards, it offers the job to the candidate. The job offer process tends to be simple as it will help to avoid as many confusion and misunderstanding.

Other than that external references check and employment offer is also considered as a vital part of the recruitment and selection practice.

  • External Reference Check: At the time of recruitment, employers ask the employees for the references check in his/ her CV (Veil et al., 2011). The action will help to identify more personal information about the candidate. However, the reference check is performed within the friends, family and relatives etc. in regards to this, it is recommended that employer should consider now only one reference as more than two tends to be quite time-consuming. Based on the study, it is depicted that reference check is the important part of the recruitment and selection policy.
  • Employment Offer: Employment offer decisions consider as a crucial one and it is taken when HR manager fully satisfied with the candidate. In regards to this, the employee should recheck the selected one document such as experiences and education certificate. After that only all the legal formalities need to conduct (Williams & Chinn, 2010). This exercise brings more relevancies in the employment offer.

Develop Communication Plan

There are various areas that top management needs to focus on implementing the effective communication between the different departments. Under the communication plan, the selection of right media is most important (Dhar, 2015). This will help to avoid the delay in flowing of information at the workplace. For the healthcare united, the best ways to communicate the information are as follows:-

  • E-mails
  • Intranet
  • Document reporting
  • Conduct team meeting

Besides that, social sites are in current trend among the global environment. In concern to this, Whatsapp and Snapchats are the best-suited one to share the important information. But it is more likely to be the informal way of communication (Puhakainen & Siponen, 2010). It can prove to be effective in the term to make individual comfortable to share their viewpoint or decision about a task or activity.  Other than that, the business meeting would be most appropriate in regards to communicate the policies and legislation to team leaders. Furthermore, Submission of documents in the proper format likely to use high in the different sector for communication of facts to the manager of different departments. Thus, the combination of such tools would contribute towards the smoothly flowing of information about the HR policy among different departments.

Training Evaluation Form

Training is another step in HR policy and it is required to address for including the necessary skills among the new candidate. This will help the employee to perform the task in an effective way. Moreover, the training session brings improvement in the company productivity through making an employee capable to perform the task. The right training program always encourages the individual to successfully complete the work with specialization (Dufour et al., 2010). Thus, it is quite important to conduct the training session once in a week. The frequent changing business environment demands the adaptation of training programs at the organization. Furthermore, training evaluation form tends to be quite important for understanding that whether individual becomes competent enough to address the work or task.
