Human Resource Management

Taking a strategic approach to HR, managers anticipate the future supply of and demand for employees and the nature of workforce issues, including the retention of employees. These factors are considered when recruiting applicants for job openings and making the best selection decisions possible. Being able to recruit and retain the “best” employees has been a challenging task for HR managers. The “best” employees are not necessarily the most qualified individuals (e.g., those with the most education or work experience); they are the individuals who provide value to an organization, who complement the organization, who understand and embrace the organization’s mission, who help build an inclusive workforce, and who fit the culture of the organization. This quandary is a result of a number of different variables such as job satisfaction, organizational commitment, job performance, motivation, and workplace compatibility. Furthermore, contemporary HR managers also are tasked with contributing to peak performance initiatives because of escalated global demands and competition. There are two important functions related to staffing; they include developing employees and building an inclusive workforce.

Which ones are in your announcement but not in the one you found? Would you change your announcement to incorporate any of the differences that you noted being on one announcement but not in the other? Why or why not?
