   III. READING PRACTICE
        To deal with this part, you are suggested to read through the following passage
        comprehensively.

       Recruitment and Selection
       When there is a vacancy in a company, it is the job of Personnel Manager and
       his department to manage the recruitment of a new employee. One way an
       organization can find staff for job vacancies is to recruit in-company.
       Management can inform people of new appointments by means of the
       company’s notice board or news bulletin.

       Another possibility is to ask for recommendations from departmental managers
       and supervisors. If it is necessary to recruit outside the company, the Personnel
       Department may use commercial and government employment offices or
       consultant. It may refer to put its own advertisement in newspaper, magazine,
       radio, television and the like.

       It is usual, for an advertisement to give a short description of the job, conditions
       of work and salary and to invite introductory letter from applicants. After studying
       these, management decides who receive an application form.

       In order to assess the applications, managers can work from a Personnel
       Specification. They do not choose applicants who do not have a good profile. For
       this reason, it is important that application form requests clear information about
       such things as the applicants’ age, education qualification and work experience.
       It must also ask for references from other employers or people who know the
       applicants well. This information helps management to make a final decision on
       the number of applicants they can short-list for interview.

       The staff who hold interview together are called interview panel. It is important
       that they know what information they need to get from the applicants. This comes
       from a careful reading on job description, personnel specification and
       applications. These help the panel in their selection. Some companies use an
       interview assessment form. The panel during the interview uses this when each
       applicant is checked under the same point on the form.

       A. Vocabulary
          • Description (n)          picture in words
          • Applicant (n)            a person who applies for a job
          • Specification (n)        careful description of each necessary point
          • Profile (n)              short description of an applicant’s important points
          • Reference (n)            information about the past performance

  I.   LISTENING PRACTICE

       To deal with this part, you are suggested to do the following practices:

       A. Class Work

          Appoint one student to read out the passage below in front of the class, while
          the rest are requested to complete the available diagram that follows:

          After the behavior, knowledge and skills of its staff have been analyzed in
          order to define training needs, a company should look at the performance of
          personnel and performance that is required for each job. From the information,
          it is possible to make a training plan.

          Next, there are several things to specify. The Training Department must
          decide where the training is done and who does it. The same department
          must also decide which training methods are used and the timing of the
          training program. Following these decisions, it is necessary to collect materials
          for the courses. Afterwards, when the courses have been completed, the
          trainees are tested to find out what they have learned. Finally, the Training
          Department should evaluate the training program.

   III. READING PRACTICE
        To deal with this part, you are suggested to read through the following passage
        comprehensively.

       Training Program
       Training must have a purpose, which is defined when a company analyses its
       training needs. A review of manpower planning should include a training analysis
       which looks carefully at training from the point of view of the company, its various
       departments and personnel. This may show that weaknesses exist in some
       departments and that as a result, training is needed for their staff. Training needs
       are based on an analysis of job descriptions and job specifications.

       A job description should give details of the performances that are required for a
       specific job and a job specification should give information about the behavior,
       knowledge and skills that are expected on an employee who works in it. When all
       of these have been collected, it is possible to make a training specification. This
       specifies what the Training Department must teach for the successful
       performance of the job and also the best methods to use the training period.

       There are many different training methods and there are advantages and
       disadvantages to all of them. Successful training program depends on an
       understanding of the difference between learning about skills and training in
       using them. It is frequently said that learning in using those skills takes place “off
       the job” in the classroom, but training in using those skills takes place “on the
       job”, by means of such activities as job rotation and planned experience.

       It is always difficult to evaluate the costs and savings of a training program. The
       success of such a program depends not only on the methods used but also on
       the quality staff who do the training. A company can often check on saving the
       time and cost by examining the manual work performed by operators and
       technicians who have completed a training program. The evaluation of
       management and supervisory training is much more complex than that in order to
       test the result of management and supervisory training, many companies have
       looked at such things as the number of management and supervisory staff who
       leave their employment and the number who stay away from work for reasons of
       health.

       A. Vocabulary
          • Define (v)               describe exactly
          • Require (v)              need, necessary
          • Job rotation (np)        moving workers around from one job to another

   III. READING PRACTICE
        To deal with this part, you are suggested to read through the following passage
        comprehensively.

       Wages and Salaries
       The organization and administration of wages and salaries are very complex and
       varied. In some companies, the Personnel Department has more responsibility
       for wages and salaries than the Accounting Department. In others, the
       Accounting Department is responsible for calculation of pay, while the Personnel
       Department is more interested in negotiations with staff about pay.

       If a company wants to introduce a new wage and salary structure, it will have to
       decide on a method of job evaluation and ways of measuring the performance of
       its employees. In order to be successful, that pay structure will need agreement
       between Trade Unions and Management or a clearly defined system for dealing
       with the problem.

       In job evaluation, all of the requirements of each job are specified in a detailed
       job description. Each of these requirements is given a value, usually in “points” or
       “factors”, which is added together to give a total value for the job. To pay each
       job what it is worth, the values are linked to the company’s salary structure. For
       middle and higher management, a well-known point method is the “hay System”.
       This evaluates personnel on their knowledge of the job, their responsibility and
       their ability to solve problems. Because of the difficulty in measuring
       administrative work, however, job grades are often decided without reference to
       an evaluation system based on points or factors.

       In attempting to reach a salaries policy, the Personnel Department should
       compare the value of each job with those in the job market. It should also
       analyze economic factors such as the cost of living and the labor supply.

       It is said that the payment of a job should vary with any differences in the way
       that a job is performed. Where it is simple to measure the work done, as a
       manual work, monetary incentive schemes and merit awards are often selected.
       For indirect workers, where measurement is difficult, methods of additional
       payments include bonus schemes based on the performance of the company.

       Non-financial incentive schemes are becoming more popular for all employees.
       Fringe benefits such as sickness and pension schemes, sport clubs, housing and
       canteens are all an accepted part of the conditions of work.
