Running head: Apple Talent Acquisition 2

Based on the information given but in your own words, explain what approaches to recruiting might be best suited for Apple’s talent acquisition.

According to the case study, Apple has already acquired P.A. Semi, a startup company that designs microchips. By acquiring this company Apple will no longer need to purchase their chips thus, eliminating the threat of another company having access to their technology. They also will have access to a staff that is already trained and read to do the job, which will aid in the training of new staff as they are hired. Apple can also find great entry level talent by holding job fairs at local colleges and universities. They can also offer internships which will allow the company to train their future talent for employment. A human resource professional may use a variety of sources to seek a qualified individual. Some of the other sources include private and public agencies. By registering with public and private agencies, Apple can tell the agencies what they are looking for and the agency will do the working in finding the best talent to bring to the company.
Describe the recruiter traits and behaviors that would lead to the most successful recruiting campaign for Apple.

The recruiter is the first representation of the company when it comes to staffing. They can make a difference between an effective or non effective company.

Talent Agency

...Example: The Talent Agency Suppose you have been asked to build a database for a talent agency that books musical bands into clubs/Restaurants. The agent needs a database to keep track of the agency’s transactions and to answer day-to-day questions. For example, a club manager often wants to know which bands are available on a certain date at a certain time, or wants to know the agent’s fee for a certain band. The agent may want to see a list of all band members and the instrument each person plays, or a list of all bands that have three members. Suppose that you have talked to the agent and have observed the agency’s business operation. You conclude that your database needs to reflect the following facts: 1. A booking is an event in which a certain band plays in a particular club on a particular date, starting and ending at certain times, and performing for a specific fee. A band can play more than once a day. The Heartbreakers, for example, could play at the East End Cafe in the afternoon and then at the West End Cafe on the same night. For each booking, the club pays the talent agent. The agent keeps a five per cent fee and then gives the remainder of the payment to the band. 2. Each band has at least two members and an unlimited maximum number of members. The agent notes a telephone number of just one band member, which is used as the band’s contact number. No two bands have the same name or telephone number. 3. Band member names are not unique. For example...

Resourcing Talent

...Resourcing Talent (Certificate In Human Resource Practice) Introduction The aim of this report is to: * Identify and assess at least 4 factors that affect an organisation’s approach to attracting talent. * Identify and explain at least 3 organisation benefits of attracting and retaining a diverse workforce. * Describe at least 3 factors that affect an organisation’s approach to recruitment and selection. * Prepare a Recruitment Authorisation Request to the MD comparing and contrasting the benefits of at least 3 different recruitment methods and three different selection methods. Methodology In preparing this report, research was done through books and the internet and was based on the workings of the company I am employed by. Findings The Identification and Assessment of 4 Factors Which Can Affect an Organisation’s Approach to Attracting Talent The main factor here is Supply and Demand: * Is there a vacancy? The first point to consider is whether or not there is actually a vacancy to fill. If a current member of staff has left or is intending to leave, could the vacancy be filled by splitting the job between other current employees? This could be resolved by carrying out a job analysis gaining information from the leaver (through an exit interview) and the line manager. The opportunity could arise at this point to consider restructuring the company by promoting someone to take on more responsibility – thereby affording that employee...

Wide variations exist in how the term ‘talent’ is defined across differing sectors, and organizations may prefer to adopt their own interpretations rather than accepting universal or prescribed definitions. That said, it is helpful to start with a broad definition and, from our research, we have developed a working definition for both ‘talent’ and ‘talent management’:  Talent consists of those individuals who can make a difference to organizational...

Talent Management

...The telecommunications industry is frequently among the first sectors to enter the newly emerging economies, often bringing financial services as well as connectivity to poor but ambitious populations who are eager for education, telecommunications, electricity, and mobility. Companies operating in frontier markets like much of sub-Saharan Africa, along with some countries in Central Asia, Latin America, and Southeast Asia face hurdles more challenging than anything they have seen in the BRICs, especially in recruiting, retaining, and developing employees. The frontier markets are at the heart of Etisalat’s long-term strategy and although telecommunication and technology are their main-business their biggest challenge lies in their talent management strategy. The nature of our industry and the dynamics of the market these days dictate that companies need people who are not just very capable but very adaptable to changing financial times and various geographic environments. Also, robust retention packages and incentives are required to retain talent. Etisalat has been able to attract, retain, and manage executive talent not just based on the compensation package, but also on their ability to create a long-term relationship and opportunities for professional development. They create a snapshot of each individual in their talent pipeline in terms of the three Es: education, experience, and exposure. And then they create the opportunities to make sure that they are well...

Talent Management

...Develop appropriate talent management objectives to measure functional expertise. Executives and HR management have always been focused on basic talent management-acquiring, hiring and retaining talented employees. In order to drive optimal levels of success, business leaders need engaged, high-performing employees. The key to inciting a workforce to greatness is to align your talent management with company strategy, define consistent leadership criteria across all functional areas, and identify specific competencies (analytical, technical, education, experience) to cultivate for continuing growth. Business leaders who implement the best talent management processes are more prepared than their competitors to compete in the global economy and capitalize quickly on new opportunities. Success comes when companies do more than adapt to long-term trends; they must be able to anticipate and jump on new opportunities before the rest of the market (Collings, et al. 2009). Align individual goals with corporate strategy. The best talent management plan is closely aligned with the company’s strategic plan and overall business needs. Goal alignment is a powerful management tool that not only clarifies job roles for individual employees, but also demonstrates ongoing value of your employees to the organization. When you engage employees in their work through goal alignment, you create greater employee ownership in your company's ultimate success; they become more committed to your...

Design/methodology/approach – The first phase was a survey on a sample of 272 BPO/ITES employees, using Gallup q12 or Gallup Workplace Audit. Focus group interview discussion was based on reasons for attrition and the unique problems of employee engagement. In the second phase, one of the BPO organizations from the phase I sample was chosen at random and exit interview data was analyzed using factor analysis and content analysis. Findings – The results were in the expected direction and fulfilled the research aims of the current study. In the first phase low factor loadings indicated low engagement scores at the beginning of the career and at completion of 16 months with the organization. High factor loadings at intermediate stages of employment were indicative of high engagement levels, but the interview data reflected that this may mean high loyalty, but only for a limited time. In the second phase factor loadings...

... processor.[53] In 1996, Spindler was replaced by Gil Amelio as CEO. Amelio made numerous changes at Apple, including extensive layoffs and cut costs.[54] After numerous failed attempts to improve Mac OS, first with the Taligent project and later with Copland and Gershwin, Amelio chose to purchase NeXT and its NeXTSTEP operating system and bring Steve Jobs back to Apple.[55] 1997–2007: Return to profitability The NeXT deal was finalized on February 9, 1997,[56] bringing Jobs back to Apple as an advisor. On July 9, 1997, Amelio was ousted by the board of directors after overseeing a three-year record-low stock price and crippling financial losses. Jobs acted as the interim CEO and began restructuring the company's product line; it was during this period that he identified the design talent of Jonathan Ive, and the pair worked collaboratively to rebuild Apple's status.[57] At the 1997 Macworld Expo, Jobs announced that Apple would join Microsoft to release new versions of Microsoft Office for the Macintosh, and that Microsoft had made a $150 million investment in non-voting Apple stock.[58] On November 10, 1997, Apple introduced the Apple Online Store, which was tied to a new build-to-order manufacturing strategy.[59][60] On August 15, 1998, Apple introduced a new all-in-one computer reminiscent of the Macintosh 128K: the iMac. The iMac design team was led by Ive, who would later design the iPod and the iPhone.[61][62] The iMac featured modern technology and a......

Talent

...10/6/2015 Renaissance Women My talent is more than one talent which some may call it as being multi-talented. I can do pretty much anything once I put my mind to and once it is shown to me one time I will be able to do it without supervision. Below I will list a few of my many talents and compare them from the internet with the outcome of my own work. While home after giving birth to my daughter I picked up a hobby in making baby shower pins. A friend of mine was having a baby shower and needed help in getting her pins done. She was running out of funds so I volunteer in making the pins for her. I went to my local novelty store to see how the pins looked and are made. Once I saw how easy it was I bought all the products that I needed and began making them myself. Once I finished the pins I was very proud of myself and began showing people what I had done. I had gotten great response back which lead to people placing orders and me making this hobby into something that makes me money. My next talent is decorating for parties as well as doing party bags for kid events. My family is the type where we celebrate everything in our lives whether it’s a birth, a birthday, graduation etc. My older cousin was having a party for her son (my little cousin) and the theme was ninja turtles. She asked me if I was able to help her and I agreed to do the party bags. I looked online for unique ideas to make ninja turtle party bags, which I did. Once I found a cute idea I sent it to her...

... to expect from the selection process, including how long it will take and the type of assessment they will undergo. Employers should also check whether the applicant has any need for adjustments due to a disability. Behavioural science has a lot to say about the way we make decisions in recruitment settings as it tells us that people have hardwired systematic biases in how they evaluate candidates. Our behaviour does not always fit a rational actor model but it is still systemic and predictable. Harnessing knowledge about how we actually behave can help recruiters to improve outcomes for the organisations they represent. * Find out more in our report A head for hiring: the behavioural science of recruitment and selection ------------------------------------------------- The role of selection interviewing Interviews are very widely used in the selection process, as demonstrated by successive CIPD surveys of recruitment practices. * See our annual Resourcing and talent planning surveys As well as being simple to set up, interviews give the interviewer and interviewee an opportunity to meet face to face (or virtually via video link) to exchange a range of information and get a sense of whether they would like working together. For the employer, the interview is an opportunity to: * gauge candidates’ experience, ability to perform in the role and suitability for the team * discuss details such as start dates and terms and conditions * explain the...

...Stansfield College _ Singapore Literature Review _ HR502 Strategic Human Resource Management (PGDM Unit) Talent Management Shawn Tkatch March 2012 Program: MBA – VUN (Jan-Apr 2012 Term) Lecturer : Juhi Ranjan INTRODUCTION In 1997 a group of McKinsey consultants coined the phrase a “War for Talent” which refers to an organizations effort to improve strategies, policies and practices for the attraction, development, deployment and retention of talent for their business. This brings about the need to understand precisely what the organization requires and to determine the actual and potential talents required of the employees. David Whitwan, former CEO of Whirlpool Corporation stated “The thing that wakes me up in the middle of the night is not the economy or competitors; it is whether we have the leadership capability”. This statement reveals the challenges that organizations face in the new knowledge economy. Developing and retaining good and talented people has become a significant challenge for most businesses, big or small. In the 21st century, talent is being defined as the new wealth. In today’s business, most organizations are talent poachers opposed to talent developers within their existing employee workforce. Once talent is identified, companies use anything and everything to lure that talent to the organization in order to gain the competitive edge. A Harvard Business Review article from January, 2000...
