  2. Discuss the pros and cons of at least four performance appraisal methods. (10 Marks)
  3. Managers are proactively improving the employee selection process with various strategies
    that will ideally enhance corporate success. Some of these strategies focus on improving the
    quality of the individuals who apply for work, as well as those individuals who are actually
    hired into the organization. Other strategies target the selection process itself and seek to
    improve the various activities involved in proper hiring. The overriding theme of these
    efforts is that the staffing/selection function is a key component of an organization’s strategy
    because the process ideally provides highly motivated and qualified employees who can
    ultimately impact the financial and operational well-being of a company.
    Hallmark Cards is one company that emphasizes selection. It recently developed a recruiting
    metric called “staffing index” that enables management to track the degree to which newly
    hired employees are performing as expected on the job. A series of evaluations are
    conducted over time, and scores are compared to obtain a longitudinal perspective on the
    quality of the hiring decisions.
    United Health Group is another organization that has improved its selection activities with
    proper strategic planning and execution. The company’s vice president of recruitment
    services decided to modify hiring procedures within the organization by splitting job
    candidates into two basic groups. The first group of individuals was comprised of high-level
    professionals who would be recruited by internal staffing specialists, while the second group
    included various staff and line personnel who would be acquired with outsourcing contacts.
    This “two pronged” strategy enabled the company to save money through increased control
    and efficiency.
    These various strategic selection approaches enable companies to improve the manner in
    which employees are hired and placed within a hierarchy of jobs. Many other strategies
    could be employed in different employment situations to improve the efficiency and
    effectiveness of selection. Overall, these efforts should increase the degree of fit between
    employees and organizations and increase the completion of strategic objectives.
    a. Compare and contrast the two selection strategies used by the organizations discussed in the
    case. (5 Marks)
    b. What other strategies might help organizations better utilize and manage selection
    activities? (5 Marks).
