Abstract
Managing human resources and organizational structures in every organization is vital in increasing productivity and overall performance. This project was undertaken to aid Atala Limited in managing its administrative tasks as well managing prospective recruits. After a needs assessment conducted via interviews, observation and focus group discussions, and an organizational SWOT analysis, 3 major needs, in order of importance to the organization, were found: Organizational Structure, A Staff Recruitment and Selection Plan and Inventory Management. These results and an extensive literature review led to a proposal of developing an organizational structure for effective management, and a staff recruitment and selection plan to provide the company with standard procedures in recruiting and selecting applicants. In addition to this, sample job descriptions were developed for key managerial positions. It is recommended that Atala Limited adopts the designed organizational structure, develops job descriptions for all positions on the structure and utilize the proposed recruitment plan to aid and enhance its managerial practices, hence secure a competitive position in the market. Key words: Organizational Structure, Needs Assessment, Competitive Position, staff recruitment and selection plan and Atala Limited
