Introduction

In this assignment I will be taking the role of a HR manager and i will be explaining the

different aspects that a selection panel would have to consider when they are recruiting

employees. In addition their are a lot of legislations that need to be considered when

handling different aspects of the selection proccess and I will be covering some of these

legislations. Also the business that I will be talking about in this assignment in Tescos.

Job Advert

A job advert is the first part of the selection process it is one of the most important parts of

the prcess becasue without it a business will not get any applicants. Job adverts help a

business to make people aware that they have a job vacancy, also a job advert contains

information about the vacancy therefore it will then atract the right people. Furthermore

when a business creates job adverts they must try to consider all legislations and ethical

issues because if they dont a business can be sued and will have to pay a lot of money.

National minimum Wage in the UK

National minimum wage is the wage that employees would get, these figures are released

by the government and the wages do vary depending on the age of the employees. For a

businees like Tescos it is important that they but the correct wages that match the

national minimum wage and so they should familiarize themselves with the rates before

they create their job advert because the rates always change. In addition if a business

puts the wrong wage rate for example it might be too low this can lead to the business

getting sued and also they would have to pay to cahnge all their job advertisements which

would increase expenses.

...Tesco, corporations, society and consumers In this essay we are going to start to look closer at what is important for a business and what is important for society. We are going to look closer at Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), and find out what it means for a business and society. Some businesses, especially big businesses, shape many aspects of our lives. Some are around us all the time. Some have turnovers larger then a normal person can imagine. Some multi nationals have turnovers larger then some states. That being the case, how de we want them to conduct themselves? How do we want them to behave? To start, we have to answer some questions. What is important when you are a businessman and you manage a business? Do you have some responsibility to the society and the rest of the world? To answer these questions we are going to look at both sides of the spectrum. At one side of the spectrum we have the free market views of people like the economist Milton Friedman. He has argued that a business not should think about the society and the problems that the society meets. The only social responsibility of a business is to make money and get the highest profit as possible – anything else is theft from the shareholders pocket. “There is one and only one social responsibility of business–to use its resources and engage in activities designed to increase its profits so long as it stays within the rules of the game, which is to say, engages in open and free competition......

...Study: Anatomy of  A Tesco Fresh & Easy Neighborhood |   | BackgroundA lot of PR has been built around the much debated debut of Tesco in the US. Several sources suggest a $2 Billion commitment over the next 5 years, and stores are supposed to be opened up at the rate of 3 week per week. The company is aggressive about its strategy and is gambling big bucks on their assumptions and understanding of the US food retail market. Success will result in returns of hedge-fund proportions, given the high margins that exist in the fresh and prepared foods and the organic growth that will result from developing a consumer niche of their own. A lot of players in the grocery retail industry including big names like Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s as well as smaller convenience store chains are watching Tesco’s actions closely. Since Tesco is developing an original format that doesn’t directly align with anything else anyone is currently doing on this scale, no one is certain how much of a market-share threat this is. I don’t believe any single channel will get the brunt of market-share loss from Tesco’s success in the US, more likely it will carve a little out of all channels. There are some industry experts that call Tesco’s strategy unwise given the maturity of this industry and there are those experts that acknowledge the respectable track record this company has racked up and the business acumen of its leaders. ‘No guts no glory’ seems to be the motto at Tesco, given their past......

M1 - Analyse the Implication of Government Policies for Tesco and the Possible Reactions of the Business to Government Decisions. What Actions the Tesco Would Take Based on the Policies?

...M1- Analyse the implication of government policies for Tesco and the possible reactions of the business to government decisions. What actions the Tesco would take based on the policies? What the government expect the businesses to do? Possible reactions of the businesses to the government policies? What would businesses do for the changes the government makes? Economical policy Environmental policy health policy competition policy The economical policy affects Tesco’s. The possible changes the government could make are: * A rise is co-operation tax * A rise in Interest rates In order to take action Tesco’s could pass some of this tax to its customers charging higher prices for the goods/services. If interest rates start rising, this could be a downfall for the business and customers will reduce their expenditure. This depends if Tesco’s takes a loan out if it is struggling but because Tesco’s is a global organisation, they probably wouldn’t need to. If any of the problems do , the possible reaction may be that they may request the government to reduce tax/interest rates because businesses may not be able afford it and wouldn’t be doing as well as it was before. The environmental policy affects Tesco’s. Environmental concerns: * Carbon emissions * Sustainability * Complying with environmental laws Tesco’s is working on reducing emissions by 2020 and they can do this by reducing carbon footprint of their supply chain by 30%.

National Environmental Policy Act (Nepa)

...Let’s talk about social government policies in the economy. Social government policies aim to improve human welfare and to meet human needs for education, health, housing and social security. For example, The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) is considered a social policy. The NEPA is a national environmental law that the U.S. established promoting the enhancement of the environment and to regulate activities that have an environmental impact in the United States. January 1st 1970, President Richard Nixon signed the NEPA which then proceeded to create the Council on Environmental Quality which would analyze the environmental impact of federal actions. The legislation during this period concerned primarily first-generation pollutants in the air, surface water, groundwater, and solid waste disposal. Air pollutants such as nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide, and ozone were put under regulation, and issues such as acid rain and global warming were also concerns. In surface water, the contaminants of concern were bacteria, suspended and dissolved solids, nutrients, and toxic substances such as metals. Finally, solid waste contaminants from agriculture, industry, mining, municipalities, and others were put under control. The NEPA goes through a series of actions before making a...
