Your small home health care service company of about 50 workers has traditionally recruited employees using newspaper print advertisements. Applications have been decreasing from these ads, so you are looking for alternative ways to generate more applicant flow. The company president has requested that you, as HR manager, prepare an overview of how educational/academic and Internet recruiting efforts might improve the recruiting traffic. Present pros and cons of these new methods and compare them to newspaper recruiting. What will your company need to do differently to actively use educational/academic and Internet recruiting as you compete with other employers for qualified applicants? As you recruit home health care professionals, identify the niche websites that you recommend be used for your Internet postings and the reasons for your recommendations. Identify possible educational/academic sources in your region.
Your company has reaped the benefits of having long-term, tenured employees, but many of them are now approaching retirement. It is anticipated that approximately 20% of the company’s workforce will retire in the next three to five years. In reviewing the remaining workforce through HR planning efforts, you have become aware of work–life balance issues that need to be reviewed and addressed. The company president has requested that you prepare a retention plan outlining these issues as well as ways to address them. Resources to help you address the issues in the retention plan can be found at www.workfamily.com. What steps will you take to identify key priorities in the work–life balance issues? How will you present a business case to gain management support for addressing those issues to help retain existing workers and to fill the positions vacated by retiring employees?mgmt
