1. About ASDA and its strategic and operational plans 

Associated Dairies and Farm Group (ASDA) was founded in 1949, it is considered the second largest FMCG retail in UK that also provides financial services. The success of its business enabled it to become a subsidiary of Walmart in 1999, which added to its expertise. ASDA employs more than 175 thousands across the UK, it seeks to become a "Trusted Employer" through providing training and engaging its employees. The working team cooperates with the effective leadership to help the company achieve its mission (ASDA 2018).

ASDA’s philosophy adopts the concept of happy employees that allow the customers enjoy their shopping experience. It creates a safe and family environment for its employees that demonstrates respect and trust. ASDA culture of trust is the core of its strategic and operational plans. Trust represents that ASDA always does the right thing to its stakeholders, through providing excellent service to its customers, respect to individuals, strive for excellence and acting with integrity. ASDA customer pledge outlines what customers should expect from dealing with it. ASDA colleague pledges demonstrate what it is committed to provide for its workforce that includes fairness, equal opportunity, respect and pride of working at ASDA (ASDA 2018).

2. Legislation and the regulations relevant to ASDA policies and procedures. 

The Australian employment laws and legislations are very important to organize the relationship between the employer and the employees that consider the legal minimums that should be included in the employees' contract. According to Australia Government (2018), the laws that can affect the recruitment, selection and induction are as follows:

  • Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012 (Cwth)
  • Competition and Consumer Act 2010
  • State and territory WHS health and safety legislation.
  • Fair Work Act 2009
  • Disability Discrimination Act 1992
  • Privacy Act 1988
  • Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 1988
  • Sex Discrimination Act 1984
  • Freedom of Information Act 1982
  • Racial Discrimination Act 1975

3. Policies and procedures of ASDA that ensure staffing requirements are met and comply with the strategic management policy

ASDA’s employs a comprehensive HR strategy of colleagues' engagement and support to the organisational culture that provide many opportunities for career development. They include, ‘Best Welcome’ induction programme, ‘Star programme’ of excellent customer service, ASDA Academy’s framework for training and development and its career progression of ‘Colleague Steps’. ASDA career development programmes, include the industry’s first 3-year BA Honours degree in retail and distribution, George retail foundation degree and accredited apprenticeship scheme. Its strategies are discussed according to ASDA (2018) as follows:

  • ASDA recruitment strategy:depends on publishing vacancies on its website. It aims to attract the best talents that best fits the job requirements, it also offers competitive salaries. The e-recruitment policy enhan;ced the speed and efficiency of recruitment.
  • Colleagues' roles:ASDA offers many roles due to its large business requirements.

· Selection: Applicants register through the e-recruitment process, where the HR team selects the shortlist candidates for an assessment or interview. The job description and the personal qualifications should be matched together to help managers in selecting the best match for the available position. The assessment centre is called ‘ASDA Reality’ or ‘ASDA Magic’ allows the candidates to express their strengths to be aligned with ASDA culture. The last step in the recruitment process is to provide the appropriate training designated to the required role. Training is based on ‘Colleague Steps’ process that involves three key stages – ‘Step In, Step On, Step Up’.

Training and development: ''Step In" is an induction program that lasts for 4 weeks that involves an accreditation to allow the college to move to "Step On" stage after 6 months of work. This step includes coaching, retail apprenticeship and more services. The "Step Up" involves career progression, where colleagues take the chance to create knowledge of excellent customer service delivery across different roles.

6. Ways of assisting ASDA formal recruitment, selection and induction policies across all the stores  

ASDA analysis of strategic planning, policies and objectives reveal that it has gaps in its employees' competency and workforce planning. These shortfalls should be eliminated to ensure achieving the organizational strategic objectives according to Aspire Training & Consulting (2018), as follows:

  • Recruitment policies:They should define the procedures of recruitment of colleagues. It could depend on internal recruitment through the progression policies or it could be external recruitment that aims to attract new experiences to the company. ASDA has benefited from being a subsidiary of Wallmart by attracting new talents with global experience.
  • Selection procedures:They describe the actions to be taken according to the selection policy. They should specify rules and responsibilities of using external agency, the selection panel role, defining the shortlisted candidates, ways of communicating them, testing process, referees contacting, contract development and informing the selected candidates.
  • Induction policies and procedures: The induction type should match the organization size and the assigned roles to be effective. Being a large organization, ASDA should conduct a structured, formal and intensive program that lasts for a week to ensure full preparation of new candidates.

7. The importance of senior management and store managers support for the new policies

Selecting the right candidates is important for the organization well performance, cost reduction and complying with laws. The senior managers should consider these three factors to be able to achieve the organizational goals of becoming a trusted employer in ASDA (Kumar & Gupta 2014).

Part 2   

Q1. Job analysis, description and requirements

Job analysis is the systematic process conducted by the human resource managers to determine the skills, knowledge and duties needed for performing a specific role in an organization. While job description is usually developed from the information gathered in the job analysis. It provides a summary of the findings of the job analysis and reveals the most important elements of it. It is considered the blueprint of the job that identifies, summarizes, describes tasks and duties of the job. It should include five elements of the job title, activities, working conditions, procedures and the physical environment. It allows candidates to have the full information before applying for the job. Job analysis is used by the recruiters to determine job requirements by defining the skills, knowledge and abilities of the required candidates needed to perform the job. Job requirements are very important to enable organizations to determine the educational background and certifications required for the job (Mangaleswaran & Kirushanthan 2015). Sean should have indicated the educational level and certifications and he should have clearly defined the number of years of experience in the second advertisement. These requirements are essential to help the candidates apply according to their qualifications and facilitate the selection process.

Q4. Training session for the managers involved in the recruitment process

  • Determining the minimum qualifications of the candidate from the information collected through job analysis can be qualitatively or quantitatively analyzed.  

Q5. Outsourcing 

Outsourcing represents a good recruitment system for many organizations. Although it has its advantages and disadvantages. It can benefit ASDA through fast delivery of expertise who can perform tasks with better quality. Also, it enables HR and managers to focus on their core duties rather than conducting the recruitment process. In addition, it reduces the cost of recruitment. Outsourcing disadvantages are represented in the risk of exposing confidential data and technology to external agency. Also, choosing a wrong partner for outsourcing raises problems, including low-quality delivery and extended time for expertise delivery (Somjai 2017).

Q6. The use of information technology (IT) 

IT devotes an opportunity to the HRM at ASDA. It allows them to become more efficient and provide timely and accurate information to decision makers. Using the tools, like the Human Resource Information System (HRIS), is important to acquire and store data required for analysis and decision making. Also, IT allows for faster and more accurate recruitment and selection (Samuel & Nyarko 2014).

2. Report on work allocation, performance assessment and follow up

  1. Work allocation

Human resource allocation refers to an organization's ability to apportion its workforce. The content of work assigned to the employees could change to match their abilities and the changing environmental conditions. For example, ASDA store managers should hold the responsibilities required to do their dedicated roles in a way that fulfills the organizational strategic goal. Also, they should be supplemented with suitable candidates with the required skills to fulfill the job duties and achieve the organizational success according to the predefined performance standards in the job. Work allocation guarantees resource utilization through maintaining balanced availability of talents among different stores and departments. The excess workforce is costly that should be managed through internal recruitment to create balance and cost efficiency (The Japan Institute for Labour Policy and Training 2013/2014).

  1. Assessing performance and feedback

ASDA can choose among different methods of risk assessment, the formal performance appraisal depends on explicit assessment criteria that include task completion, accuracy, quality and timing.  The provided feedback should be constructive, involves two-way communication and timing. Promotion should be based on performance according to the formal performance appraisal (Islam & Rasad 2012).

  1. Managing follow up

The performance of the new store managers in ASDA should be monitored to assure it matches the organizational goals. A balance card approach is a useful tool that could be used to follow-up the performance based on predefined measures that the store managers are aware of. Also, additional performance elements should be considered in judging the performance during the follow-up process. The informal learning allows the new colleagues to be aware of information missed in the induction process and makes them up to date with new issues that could be considered later on the induction process (Aslam & Shah 2009).
