...Explore Activity 2 Local Access and Transport Areas – Local Access and Transport Area is a U.S. term that refers to a geographic region assigned to one or more telephone companies for providing communication services. A connection between two telephone companies within the same region is referred to as intraLATA.

One of the ways to drive and improve personal performance is by undertaking self assessments. While there are many self assessments available, many rely upon different contributing factors. The Johari Window theory focuses on communication being vital to a successful business; being an information processing model, the Johari Window employs a four-part figure to reflect the interaction of two sources of information - self and others. (Teleometrics International, 2007). Whilst the Johari Window could be an advantage in future roles I wish to progress into within Wilko, identifying area’s I don’t know about myself could be vital to the success of my newly formed team.

Source: Recruitment and Retention of Staff The Human Resources department within Asda will need to recruit staff for the different stores that they have, meaning that they will have to collect lots of information on the people that are applying. They will have to make multiple checks on the people who have applied for the jobs, and it is their fault if they fail to conduct these checks and they employ someone who shouldn’t be employed by the company. An example of these checks are that they would make criminal reference checks to see if the person they are looking to employ has a criminal past which may put them at risk to the public if they were to work in one of the stores. It is also the HR department’s job to conduct and interviews that need to take place, as well as any monitoring of the individual if there is a process such as this. However, the HR department also have the job of keeping staff as well.

...ultimately the customers bring them their business and profit. To achieve there aims and objectives they will need to do this with the support of their customer fan base. One of Sainsbury’s primary aims which I previously found in another report was to make: ‘Customers’ lives easier, offering great quality and service at fair prices, serving our customers whenever and wherever they want.’ Therefore Sainsbury’s will need to ensure that they provide all customers what they specifically want, tailoring each product as best they can for each customer giving them a personal experience. The Primary customers for Sainsbury’s will also be members of the local community. The business is a small local business and therefore only aims to serve this demographic.
