When it comes to selecting candidates through interview, more often than not the decision is made with the first five munutes of a meeting. Yet employers like to {suggest; convince; advise} themselves that they are being exceptionally thorough in their selection processes. In today's marketplace, the {worth; credit; quality} of staff is fundamental to the company's success and, as a result, recruiters use all means at their disposal to secure the best in the field.

One method in particular that has risen in popularity is testing, either psychometric testing(心理测试), which attempts to define psychological characteristics, or aptitude testing. The idea is that those testing provide an organization with an extra way of establishing a candidate's suitability for a role.

The employment of psychometric or ability testing as one {component ; member; share} of the recruitment process may have some merits, but in reality there is simply no real {extent; measure; amount} . The answer to this problem is experience in interview techniques and a strong definition of the elements of each position to be filled. The instinctive decision that many employers make, based on a CV and the first five minutes of a meeting, are perhaps no less valid than any other tool employed in the {business; topic; point} of recruitment."


Human Resources Management (HRM) is the process of managing people and their relationships in an organization. These two processes are important in the success and growth of a business.

In managing people, staffing is the most important component of HRM. It needs to make guidelines and procedures for hiring and placement. Staffing also involves the management of employees on matters like monitoring of holidays, absences, health and safety, disciplinary action, and dismissal.

Another important element of HRM in managing people is keeping the employees in the company. The training of employees to enable them to improve their career development is very important. Good HRM policies ensure that there are clear regulations which show the pay levels for the different positions in an organization. It is important for the staff to know the career path, pay, training and other opportunities that are available to them. Performance management is another important component of HRM. The reason for this is that many employers use it to evaluate career improvement and to determine pay increases.

The secondary role of HRM is the management of the relationships among people in an organization. This includes staff within departments as well as across the whole organization. The relationship between staff and management is an important factor in the success of an organization. It decides how fast an organization will realize their goals.

The focus of HRM is the people within an organization. Regular planning, monitoring and evaluation are important for the success of HRM. Successful management ensures that all employees know their role, career development and also feel part of an organization.

The “war for talent” reads like headlines from many years ago, but it has never gone away, says Eleanor Nickerson, director of UK operations for Top Employers. Many companies they have researched are short of talents. Though the companies may receive many applications, they cannot find the people they want.

Top Employers' research shows that offering good career chances is the key to attracting and keeping the talent. Smart employees know their own value and will want to know what their employers can offer them after 5 or 10 years' career development. So, keeping staff is the biggest challenge employers face in the long run.

Yet not every employee feels that they can better their career chances. Some are still nervous about losing their jobs, despite a recent fall in unemployment, says the Trades Union Congress (TUC). TUC points out that some four-fifths of new jobs created have been in part of the economy where average pay rates are less than £8 an hour since the recession began. Many of these jobs are on temporary or zero-hours contracts.

A report from the Office for National Statistics published in February showed that real wages have been falling consistently since 2010. It's the longest period since at least 1964. “We're still in the hardest living standards squeeze for over a century and those who are already working have had years of real-terms pay cuts,” says TUC spokesperson Liz Chinchen. “Understanding the pressures that staff face is a good starting point for any employer. If employers want to show concern for their staff, they should be paying them well and understand that zero-hours contracts bring insecurity and extreme money worries.”
