3.3.1. What does human Resource Manager look for new employee?
Managers can’t determine all the employee. They do not know how about the new employee during the interview and hiring processes. Even some resume have write down how their personality are, but as a manager, they can take the risk what will happen to the hotel or the workplace in the future. Some things aren’t visible till the employee is on board and interacting with the manager and his own staff. Most of the hiring decision is based on the manager sees during the interviews sections, when the employee giving out his best behavior and showing out his skills and qualifications to the organization. Even though sometimes, the quality of the workers working relationship is based on the attributes a new employee shows in the early stage of the employer-employee relationship. From what I have interview from Mr. Adrian, He told me that there are some attitude that can see based on the employee such as Expertise, Enthusiasm, Loyalty, Communication and also Relationship skills.
3.3.2 – Expertise
Expertise’s means expertness characteristic of a professional person. Expertise’s are the key to getting the job more better and expertise. If an employee can demonstrate and also know how to do the work well and nice, the manager will be pleased the employees to joined his department and the organization. Managers will always look for new employees who can perform well and also capable of performing the job duties with limited orientation and training. In the same time, employee can get promotion without an extended period time.
Enthusiasm brings out the means of great excitement or interest in a subject or cause. With the Enthusiasm attitude, the employees probably are nothing more discouraging than the employee who are seems not interested with the new job. Managers always look for an enthusiasm new employee. Even the job consists of repetitive duties, enthusiasm are about to starting a new job with the new co-workers that should be show through from the first day. Managers have high expectations on the new workers. They expect their new employee will be eager, excited and also learn more about his role in the organization and what he contributes to the departmental goals.
3.3.4 -Loyalty & Commitment
Loyalty means Loyal to the employers. Most of the employers have high expectations on their employees. They always hope their employee loyal to the company and also loyal to their boss. Loyalty and commitment are very important to a company. Managers want new employee to exhibit, even if the employment relationship is new. Exhibiting loyalty means giving new job chance before deciding to move on. It also same for commitment. Manager will hope that their new employee has think careful with his decision before they join the company and formally accepting the offer so that he will not regret because of the first days that aren’t going along smoothly.
Communication bring out the means exchange messages, or information, by speech, visuals, signals, writing, or even behavior. Communication are requires both sender and recipient. Communication requires that the communicating parties share an area of communicative commonality. Communication process is complete once the receiver has understood the message of the sender. According to Ruth Mayhew, (http://work.chron.com/manager-look-new-employee-9305.html) Communication is a huge factor in any burgeoning relationship, but especially a work relationship. The manager looks for a new employee to communicate openly and honestly about the job duties, expectations and the employee’s need for input early in the relationship to ensure he’s performing the job duties for which he was hired. Likewise, a manager looks for new employees to be receptive to communication from a leadership perspective, which consists of positive reinforcement as well as constructive feedback.
3.3.6 -Relationship Skills
Relationship skills are also very important for a Manager to hiring a new employee. Relationship skill will improve the relationship between the employers and the employees. It also build even stronger, more positive and productive teams in the company, cope well with the stress and challenges of their work and also produce better outcomes with very difficult clients. Managers also look for a new employee to show how well he fits into an organization’s culture. The manager don’t want new employee who other employees view as standoffish. Although the existing workforce usually is asked to welcome new employees, but usually is how a new employee to be more cordial and even look for ways to form workplace relationships that will help the employee get accustomed to the new job.
3.3.7. How does human resource manager recruiting and hiring employee?
Recruitment bring the means as a process by which the best qualified applicant for specified job vacancy that could be found in compliance with all federal, state and also the local regulations to employment. The responsibility for the recruitment of the job applicants for the employment varies that are depending on the size of the hospitality organization. Mr. Adrian also says that every Manager have the opportunity to analyze and revise the position and also determine the qualifications of an employee. As a Manger, we should remember what technical skills will the employee need to carry out for their job duties? What type of job behaviors will they need? Think about the past employees in the position. Time invested in thoughtfully planning the recruitment and selection process can make the difference between a good or poor hiring decision. The key to successfully developing such a program is to follow a proven recruiting process for the positions that a manager need to fill. Resist the temptation to omit steps, because shortcutting the process can shortchange the results.
When hiring a new employee, as a manager there a lot way we must take carefully when hiring a new employee. When employee come to interview, the head quarters employees must take action in everything such as, background, attitude and also the personality in the resume. As a manager, he needs to know the level of the experiences and the skill that have by the employee. Hiring an employee, the manager also need to to define the job of the for the employee. Job analysis are very important, it is the primary tool in personal management. Definitions of Job analysis are to help the manager to recruitment and selection for the right man for the right job. Job analysis have advantages, it helps manager to understand the scope of the training required field. It also helps the personal manager to undergo the performance more effectively. Job analysis carries out in two ways, job description and job specification. Job description is very important when a vacancy was advertised. Job description helps the supervisors in assigning work to the subordinates so that it can be guide and monitoring in the performances. Job description it helps more in recruitment and also in the selection procedures. Job specification is the statement that translates the job description into human qualification position. Job specification helps manager in hiring appropriate people for an appropriate position. In a job specification statement, the content in it have job title, educational qualification, physical and other related attributes, physique and mental health, special attributes and also relationship of the job with other jobs in a concern. The advantages of Job specification is to help in the preliminary screening in the selection procedure, so that it can help to giving justification for every job. Furthermore, the management department can take decisions regarding to the promotion and also giving the benefits to the employees.
As a manager, there a lot of thing that he need to do. The manager not only need to take care the employees, but they also need to manage and also look for new employee and how he go about recruiting and hiring people. After the write the report, I get to know that as a manager, we need to know everything in the hospitality industry. We as a employee think that a manager hiring and recruit an employee are easy as ABC, but in opposite they work more then we expect. With the hiring and recruit method, it helps the manager to get better employee. As a manager, we can’t simply hire employee so that they can’t ruin down the whole hospitality industry.
