Workflows are the building blocks of every business.
In any legitimate and successful business “Workflows” are used to process tasks and systems. A workflow is a cycle of how a specific process is started to completion.
Sample Workflow – ”A company is looking for a new employee for the technical department”
Workflow is a system of procedure and processes the company uses to complete a task. Here the task is to find a new employee for a specific department and hire them.
The human resource manager requests applicants to apply for the job via advertisement in newspaper, trade journal or internet.
workflow process as described
This initial workflow could become a mini-workflow with the larger workflow as I review this process in my mind again.
An applicant would enter the business and request for a employment application.
The fill the employment application and leave a copy of their resume with the application with the secretary.
The secretary reviews the application to see if the job applicant qualifies for the specific task.
If the applicant qualifies, she will forward the application to the human resource manager.
If not, she will send a email to the applicant letting the person know they do not qualify for the job.
Human resource manager receives the application. Reviews the application, and approves the application for an interview.
The application forwarded to the Secretary of human resources to call the applicant and schedule an appointment.
The secretary make the appointment and then forwards the information including appointment time to the human resource manager.
Human resource manager receives the applicant. Interviews the applicant and if approved..forwards the applicants information to the department who is hiring (for example, technical department) .
The technical department secretary make an appointment with applicant for a interview with technical manager.
Technical manager reviews application and resume and decides to hire the applicant.
Applicant and additional information is forwarded to Administration who will set salary and start date.
Workflow completed. Task completed. Employee hired.
