The position present requires a person who is hard working and who knows the ways of work of Trianon. Moreover, since the joint venture involves the Hungarian government, somebody with knowledge of the Hungary government will be vital. Consequently, Alistair should choose Janos Gabor for the position in case he is forced to do that. Firstly, Gabor was born, brought up and educated in Hungary. As a result, he has good knowledge of how business is done in Hungary.
He will therefore advice the company in case there are legal issues that need to be addressed. He is also well placed to easily adapt the culture of Hungary. Moreover, Gabor has the technical knowledge about cathode ray tube which is critical for the assignment. On the same note, he has additional knowledge on systems technology which is an additional advantage.
In addition, he has worked with the company for some time and his performance is good depicted by the recent promotion that he was given. Furthermore, Gabor is single and can therefore be willing to travel without any hindrance. It should be noted that one of the requirements of the position is extensive travelling especially for the first year. Though not very vital, the connection of Gabor’s family with the government can be very crucial in ensuring that the venture goes on smoothly.
For recruitment to this position, highest degree of integrity is required. Therefore, Trianon will have to come up with the job description first. The job description needs to be detailed outlining what is expected of the person who will fill the position. It should be noted, that the position is not only technical but also administrative. As a result, somebody with knowledge of managing people will be the best option.
After having the job description Trianon will then have to advertise the position and give both internal and external people opportunities. Selection will have to be done strictly following the job description. There should be interviews both oral and over the phone to ensure that the selected candidate has the required qualities.
Questions of the interview should be based not only on the duties that the person is going to execute, but also on the general knowledge that the candidate will require during his or her duty. It is important to have the oral interview conducted by a panel of people so as to eliminate subjectivity in candidate recruitment. This procedure will ensure that the best talent is tapped into the company. It is needless to say that Trianon will need to advertise itself as the employer of choice to attract many qualified applicants.
Joint ventures involve management of people sometimes from other firms which have different operational guidelines. On the same note, by entering into a joint venture, a firm should be ready to rearrange its operations. All this will affect the mode of operations of a firm in one way or the other.
Consequently, inclusion of human resource staff will be very important. The new roles that come with joint ventures will have to be filled with qualified people. The duty of recruiting new staff to the firm rests with the human resource department. On the same note, any reorganization as far as human capital is concerned that may be required to set a joint venture into motion will have to be done by the human resource department. Consequently, human resource staff should be an integral part in finalization of joint venture agreements.
