Organizational vs. Individual Outcomes in Selection
Traditional individual outcomes expected of a personnel selection process might include increasing desired levels of work performance, job satisfaction, and employee morale. On an organizational level, expectations may relate more to acceptable levels of productivity, low turnover, and promotion of organizational citizenship behavior. Often, there is greater focus by human resource activities on expected individual outcomes and not those needed by the organization. It is important to assess and foster solid outcomes for both the individual employee as well as the organizational employer (Wilk & Cappelli, 2003).
Post explanations of three outcomes an organization might expect from its personnel selection processes. Explain whether these outcomes are consistent with those desired by job candidates, and provide rationale for any inconsistencies.
