Recruitment and Retention of Staff
The Human Resources department within Asda will need to recruit staff for the different stores that they have, meaning that they will have to collect lots of information on the people that are applying. They will have to make multiple checks on the people who have applied for the jobs, and it is their fault if they fail to conduct these checks and they employ someone who shouldn’t be employed by the company. An example of these checks are that they would make criminal reference checks to see if the person they are looking to employ has a criminal past which may put them at risk to the public if they were to work in one of the stores. It is also the HR department’s job to conduct and interviews that need to take place, as well as any monitoring of the individual if there is a process such as this. However, the HR department also have the job of keeping staff as well. Some of the company’s staff may want to leave for certain reasons, however Asda’s HR department may be able to entice them to stay by doing something as simple as increasing their wage or even giving them more responsibility within the store so that they will stay within the company.
Contract of Employment
Within the first eight weeks of employing the new employee or employees, Asda must send a contract of employment to them. If they fail to do this meaning that a contract of employment isn’t supplied, it means that the staff will have no idea what they are…...

Unit 29: Understanding Retail - Pass 2

...Pass 2 - explain the process of distributing goods through different channels from the manufacturer to the customer In the last four hundred hears distribution methods have changed. This is because of changes in technology as well as how goods are now transported and stored. An example of an improvement to storage is that the products can now be refrigerated or even whilst being transported as well. Technology has changed distribution methods as products such as music and films are now able to be downloaded from the internet, creating a digital distribution method. Hard goods, perishable goods and digital information products all require different storage and transportation methods. One of the most traditional distribution methods for transportation is by land – this can be either by lorry or by train. Land distribution is good for relatively short transport times (short and medium distances). It is also ideal for transporting heavy and bulk goods and is suitable for products with a long shelf life. On the other hand, land transportation doesn’t have very fast delivery times; this can be due to traffic jams, for example. It can also be quite costly because of petrol and maintenance costs and the land distribution will have a limited transport volume. Another traditional distribution method is by sea. This is also good for transporting heavy and bulk goods but, unlike land transportation, distributing by ship means that there is no need for special architecture such as......

...Pass 4- Plan out a research Why did I chose to do a questionnaire? During my studies of health and social care I have looked at the impact on people's health and attitudes on the correct health choices. I have seen how public health promote healthy lifestyles and help the population to make the correct health choices to better their own lives. On the other hand, there is a down side as even though public health promotes healthy lifestyles, millions if pounds are wasted as things like diabetes, obesity and heart related illnesses are increasing Daily. This shows that not everyone in the population are choosing to live healthy lifestyles, they are choosing to live unhealthy and damaging their bodies (which may be without them knowing). The research that I will be caring out as a group is to see if people do know about their own living standards and if they are generally healthy. This will then give me a brief understanding if people are choosing to ignore the information that it is provided. In my questionnaire, I am aiming to find out what people think a healthy lifestyle is and if they personally think that they are healthy. This will the help me to get a range of statistics to see if people are prone to unhealthy lifestyles. I am choosing patio give my questionnaire to late teens in a sixth form college that I attend. I am going to give the questionnaire to a group of thirty students with different ages, sexual orientations, gender, religious beliefs and values...

...GS 1145 Strategies Unit 11 Assignment 1 Reflection Kelly S Draney This class has been an eye opener for me in respect that I was a real procrastinator. It has helped to open my eyes to the fact that I need to get my homework done and in on time. With the assignment on scheduling I found that I wasted a lot of time during the day, when I could be getting things done. Breaking down my schedule into blocks showed me that I had a lot of wasted time watching TV when I could be more productive. Having to juggle time for work and school was something I was not accustomed to. I have a greater respect for my students now seeing what they have to go through. The other thing this class helped me with, was learning how to use the Microsoft Office Suites programs better. I had no idea how to use Power Point before this class. Gratefully we were put into small groups to work on these projects. The good thing about these projects was it gave me a chance to learn about Power Point. I was surprised how easy it really is to use. It also helped to learn the different rules about completing a Power Point Presentation. I enjoyed being in your class. I heard a lot of good comments from students who felt you were tough, but fair. You created a fun learning environment in class. I look forward to having you again for an instructor later on in my studies. ...
