their job success and then to hire the candidates likely to be most successful. The
process of determine predictive value of information is called validation.
Application forms – is usually the appropriate first step in analyzing the
candidates background information which include the previous work history,
education background, and other job-related demographic data. Should not include
unrelated questions to the job.
Test – Test of ability, skill, aptitude, or knowledge is relevant to a particular job are
usually the best predictors of job success. All tests should be administer in a fair
way and scored consistently. The test must be related to the job and who will best fit
for it through their test score.
Interviews – is a popular selection device, but sometimes a poor predictor of job
success because biases that are inherent in the way people perceive and judge others
on their first meeting. Some of the ways to validate can improved by training
interviewers to be aware of potential biases is by writing down question before hand
and to ask each candidate. Interviewers can also add a “curveball” questions that a
applicant would never expect to be asked.
Other techniques – Includes physical examination, job related examination so
they’re best suited for the job.
Developing Human Resources:
Most employees now need further training so that they’re able to grow and develop in
their job. This include orientation, and then proceeds to assessment of training and
development needs and the selection of the best training techniques and methods.
New Employee Orientation:
Orientation – is the process of introducing new employees to the company’s policies
and program, personnel with whom they will interact, and the nature of the job so
that they can more quickly become effective contributors. In a poor orientation will
cause dissatisfaction, anxiety or etc employee problems. An effective orientation will
give the impression that they’re welcome to the team; introduce co-workers,
supervisors and etc. Companies may also include a general overview of an
introduction to the business itself.
Training and Development:
Employees must be continually trained and developed to enhance and otherwise
improve the quality of the contributions they make to the organization.
