In an AAP, external availability and internal availability (Factors 1 and 2, respectively), are used together to define how many diverseially affected persons are available to work for your company in any given position. When two or more factors are present, they can help define the overall availability of a candidate for a job at your company. Depending on whether external or internal availability is greater, an executive search team can use a variety of tools to help you improve the numbers. Many companies do not have an official method of tracking candidate availability. Therefore, tracking the information can be done most effectively by using several tools.
What are availability and its effect on your recruitment system?
An absence of a person or a class of persons from the pool of candidates can affect the success of your recruitment process. The number of candidates that are available can change dramatically based on what is available, and the time duration of that candidate may impact your final decision. You can calculate the expected number of candidates by considering the characteristics of your job openings, the factors that are affecting the available pool of candidates, the rate of turnover, and the overall availability of applicants. Using these factors, you can make changes to improve the rate of applicant recall and to increase the reliability of the candidate pool.
What are availability and its affect on the reliability of your HR system?
An absence of a candidate or a class of candidates can reduce the reliability of your recruitment process. Using metrics to track the candidates that are not available can help increase the reliability of the overall availability and the accuracy of the time duration estimates that are derived from the recruitment process. Using metrics to track the candidates that are available can help improve the reliability of the overall availability and the accuracy of the time duration estimates that are derived from the recruitment process.
An example of an availability parameter can be a request-to-hire (RFT) or a configuration item. An RFT is a request made by a manager to a supplier for details on the availability of materials or services that have been previously contracted. A configuration item is an ordered item that is used in the production of a product. Maintaining accurate records of all configuration items can help to reduce the occurrence of missing configuration items and to increase the reliability of the time duration estimates that are derived from the production process.
What is the probability of an event occurring?
One of the main factors that can affect the probability of an event occurring is the level of communication between the parties involved in the supply chain. If there are a series of points of contact, like a star or a request-to-hire, there is a greater chance that an event can occur. An example of a point of contact in a supply chain can be a supplier and a contract manufacturer. The probability of this event increasing would depend on how well the companies are able to communicate with one another.
What is service availability?
Service availability is defined as the expected time period between the initiation of a configuration process and the delivery of a finished product or service. This is a very important factor because it helps ensure that goods are available when they are needed. The definition of service availability also encompasses whether the product or service is required in good enough condition to meet customer requirements or whether the item needs to be returned or replaced.
