The paper "PeoplePower Recruitment Company" is a wonderful example of a case study on human resources. Placements cells and companies have become a significant component of the economies in the modern world, especially in the global context. This is important for ensuring that the recruitment of the employees of the companies is done in accordance with the specific needs of the companies and the placement cells ensure that the case-specific demands of the various companies are met. This is important as this methodology is more efficient and also this helps in ensuring that the resources of the companies as well as the economy are utilized economically.
Thus, the trust and the responsibility that is placed in these recruitment companies are high. One such company is the PeoplePower Recruitment Company. The Missing controls: There are a number of controls that have to be exercised by the company while recruitments are being carried out. The most important control that has to be exercised by the placement cells that is that they ensure and regulate the recruitment process in such a manner that all the different sections of the society so that the various factions of society are accommodated into the work sector and no section of society is isolated.
This also allows for the representation of the different viewpoints that exist to come forth. John in his recruitment process was unable to ensure that the various sections of society were represented. They complain that most of the companies that he recruited employees for made were that the company had failed to ensure that the recruitments accommodated the various cultural diversity that is present in the Australian population. Another important control that has to be maintained by all recruitment companies is that the process should be able from all resources that exist, and the process that is adopted should be able to provide not only the younger generations but also members of society who have experience.
Also, there has to be ensured that the various genders are able to be represented in the working section so that there is the availability of equal opportunities to all disregarding their gender or caste. This criterion too was not completely met by John during his recruitment.
There was seen that most of the people who were employed by John were young males who were white from the private educational institutes in the country. This has led to the isolation of a certain population of the country.
