On the other hand, eliminating repetitiveness and removing non-productive employees that don't show an interest in the company goals or seem to have the company's best interest in mind is also another function Human Resource staff play an important role in.

Hiring Practices of Fortune 500 Companies

Fortune 500 companies don't get to their elite rankings by staffing the wrong employees. Many of the companies that make up this list are staffed with some of the best employees in the market place. Here are some of the hiring practice tips many Fortune 500 companies use that may surprise you.

Locating Good Staff - finding the good ones

Many firms know that you can’t always find the best employees in the same locations as their local offices are. Many Fortune 500 companies do have extensive recruiting networks in colleges across the country and also work with recruiters. HR recruiters are no more in principle that sports recruiters you hear about all the time. The recruiters go out and scout the ranks of job seekers to find the best and brightest candidates for jobs. In many cases. As mentioned, the scouting system is similar in principle to how sports teams do their scouting, While many do not think they spend time doing it, Fortune 500 companies actually will go to college and job fair exhibitions and seminars around the country looking for you, you just may not know it at firs.. They also tend to look at real life experience that accompanies the collegiate education.

Interview Process

Once the company has narrowed down a potential list of applicants for jobs, they will initiate an interview process. While the interview process for every successful company is different, many companies are choosing to use unorthodox methods of interviewing people. One example is Google that is known to ask very strange questions that force the applicant to have to use critical thinking skills on the spot. The unusual questions are designed to cut through all of the other traditional stuff that isn’t important to get some idea of how good an applicant really is.

Multiple Interviews

Many of the Fortune 500 companies use a multiple interview process to help select the best applicants. For example, they may have an initial interview with an applicant with an HR manager. Then if the HR manager likes what he sees, they may set up another interview with the applicant and a department manager. By getting the opinion of two different people within the company, this reduces the chances of hiring someone who will not work out in the long run.

Benefits and Perks

It is 'understood' as a rule that Big companies regularly offer great benefits and perks as an attracting the best and brightest individuals to their companies. The larger firms also as a rule offer higher salaries than the average company, better retirement options, free food, healthcare, and a number of other creative perks. All of this helps separate them from the rest of the pack of employers out there, which does give them an advantage, but if you're one of the 'chosen ones' it can also be 'your advantage'.

Obviously each Fortune 500 company has its own strategic system in place for locating and recruiting quality staff, so in order to catch their eye you need to understand there strategy and goals.
