The Sleep Tight! Resort and Conference Center of Albuquerque, N.M. has a staff of over 300 full time employees and 100 seasonal employees in 10 different job categories. For the past twenty-five years the resort has been run by the Clause family. The Clause family has had experience in running several small motels and were very knowledgeable of the industry. However, while they tried to treat the employees fairly, Mimi Clause, the Manager, knew nothing of proper HR practices and tended to make arbitrary decisions. She left many of the HR decisions to the employment department which consisted of a secretary and an employment supervisor who had been a secretary for Mimi’s mother. Eighteen months ago, the family decided to hire Frank Valdez as the new Manager of the resort.
After evaluating the current operations, Frank Valdez, decided that the Resort was in fairly good shape except for the lack of standardized Human Resource practices. Very little information existed to support any of the past employment decisions, especially in the area of selection. Although Jones does not have any direct experience in HR, he had taken several courses in HRM while in college.
In the last eighteen months, Valdez has encountered several problems. He would like you to:
- Evaluate the situation and identify the problem
- Include short bullet point recommendations for each weekly assignment.
This is a recruitment and selection plan that involves unit assignments as parts of the full analysis. The answers to these assignments should be complete, well organized, and of an appropriate length for the analysis involved.
3a. Identify and describe the various key points for a staffing selection program.
3b. Ma Clause has been receiving pressure from several local organizations to develop an affirmative action program. While the resort does not have any government projects, she feels that an AAP would be in the best interest of the resort. Mr. Valdez wants you to provide a summary of AAPs along with an audit procedure for evaluating the current situation and establishing goals.
3c. Recently several disabled individuals applied for jobs at the resort. Out of panic all were hired by the managers. Mr. Valdez now wants to know the Resorts responsibility under the law and a recommended course of action. Include recommended uniform guidelines.
