A key responsibility of organizational leaders is placing the right people with the right jobs. Imagine you are the director of the marketing division for a large retail company and have been tasked with hiring a new manager to lead one of your product advertising teams. Due to the critical nature of this new management position, it is important that you find an individual who will be able to lead and motivate a dynamic sales team.
In preparation for your interview with potential candidates, determine what types of questions you should ask to evaluate their qualifications. Develop five key (substantial) questions you feel will provide the most beneficial information for selecting a candidate. When forming your questions, consider the following that should become evident when screening potential candidates:
- Identify the type of leader most suitable for this position.
- Determine how this person will motivate a team.
- Explain if this person is also a team player.
- Determine whether this person is an effective communicator.
- Verify if the person's background and skills align with the key functions of the management position.
In addition to your questions, develop a list of 10 best practices for hiring as they relate to the role of HR management in today's business environment. Also consider the legal and regulatory aspects of HR management practices and their impact on the recruiting and selection process. Support each hiring practice with a rationale and references.
Support your assignment with at least three scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.
