In today’s growing population of professionals, it is essential for organizations to implement, articulate, and accentuate the best employee selection and performance appraisals methods. The selection process is what an organization uses to determine which job candidates successfully meets the demands of the job. It also determines what job applicant will fit the organization culture and present work groups. If the selections methods and practices are done poorly, this can ultimately jeopardize the organization a myriad of unnecessary preventable cost (“Importance of selection,” n.d.) Organizations will also implement a recruitment process which hires the most qualified and appropriate candidate to fill a position that is vacant whether the new hire is internal or external to the organization. There is a variation of methods that can be used for the appraisal of an employee’s performance. Understandably, no process can claim that is has an integrated method in performance appraisal (Bourouni, Hesam Amiri, and Jafari, 2009). Consequently, it is essential that human resource leaders select an appraisal methodology that will be the most efficient and effective for their organization. This paper will analyze the current employee selection and performance appraisal methods currently used by the Jewish Primary Day School of the Nation’s Capital. This organization will be evaluated on the current processes and procedures, practical implications for managers/supervisors, the strategic goals for the organization and standards for evaluating individual performance. In doing so, specific recommendations will be given improve business operations and to warrant employee commitment and dedication. This analysis is conjectural in nature and it amassed based on research and review from related works.

The cost has tremendously increased over the years for organizations while trying to attain and conserve proficient and effective employees. (“Importance of selection,” n.d.). In this paper, an evaluation of the process of the employee selection and performance appraisal methods applied at the Jewish Primary Day School of the Nation’s Capital (JPDS-NC) will be analyzed. JPDS-NC is an independent, diverse Jewish day school. JPDS-NC offers a dual curriculum of general and Judaic studies for students entering Pre-Kindergarten through Grade six. The school is coeducational, and welcomes students from the entire spectrum of Jewish observance (Jewish Primary Day School, 2014). Performance appraisals and the subsequent data retrieved will provide JPDS-NC new philosophies and concepts for refining their business operations or the decision to introduce newer ones.
