Rockefeller, Jr.This assessment explores the tasks of constructing and presenting an oral argument.

    HR Challenge: Contemporary Issue

    $15.00

    HR Challenge: Contemporary Issue In a 3-4 page memorandum to your HRM supervisor, you will outline a contemporary HRM issue and the laws associated with it. In the memorandum, you will provide background research on the issue, which your supervisor will share with the leadership team as they plan for scientific, technical, or social trends that might impact the workplace in the near future.IntroductionThe employment relationship is predicated on the exchange of power and authority for compliance and reward. As a result, employees voluntarily relinquish control of their time, effort, and industry. When employees determine that their employers inadequately compensate them for their work and seem to control their lives, conflict can result. This transforms a viable transactional relationship into a crucible of conflict and strife. When people come together in a workplace, they bring with them their values, opinions, prejudices, and sensitivities. Frequently, conflict occurs from within the employer-employee relationship as a result of these differences.Controls, policies, and procedures must thus be created to address conflict and enable organizations to operate effectively. Employers predominantly control the workplace, so most laws and regulations restrict, inhibit, or guide the behavior and authority of employers with respect to employees. Employment law guidelines provide the philosophical, legal, and moral foundations for conflict resolution in the workplace. They embody a vital component of our system of government.This assessment investigates a contemporary, HR law-related issue of your choice (not social media, it is addressed later in the course) and create a memorandum to your supervisor describing the scientific, technical, or social issue and how it impacts the workplace.IntroductionIn your work as an HRM professional, you will often encounter situations where current events, issues, and technologies impact your work with the employees and systems in human resources. This assessment asks you to take a broad look at the human resources spectrum of topics and select a current, law-related topic. You will then analyze and assess the ethical ramifications of the issue in the workplace.ScenarioYour supervisor has asked you to research some of the latest law-related trends in human resources so that the team can project ahead to scientific, technical, or social trends that might impact the workplace in the near future. This is intended to be a background research projectyou will present your findings in a 3–4-page memorandum to your supervisor that might also be shared with other HRM executives.Your ChallengeYou are an HRM professional who is tasked with researching at least one law-related article about a current issue in human resources and writing a memorandum about the background research that you have completed.Instructions

    * Chapter 16, “Dividends and Other Payouts,” pages 480–515. This chapter discusses dividend policy deals with real returns to shareholders. Short-term financial planning is the essential discipline of finance to ensure that the firm’s liquidity is intact and that ongoing operations of the firm are secure.

    Dividend policy deals with real returns to shareholders, and, thus, it has a profound impact on stock valuation and price. Dividend policy is a signal to shareholders and other stakeholders. If dividends are increased, shareholders will assume that management likes the future prospects of the firm. Likewise, if dividends are not increased or, in fact, cut or suspended, that is a very negative telling sign.

    By examining the importance of dividends to shareholders, you will see that half of the historical returns of the stock market came from dividends. In this post, discuss the following:

    * What are some of the factors that go into management’s decision to initiate payment of dividends, or to increase or decrease dividends? Look at the history of a specific company, and use the information to explain.

    * How can dividend policy impact the price of a stock?

    * Why do some investors love dividends and some abhor dividends?

    Short-term financial planning is the essential discipline of finance to ensure that the firm’s liquidity is intact and that ongoing operations of the firm are secure. The examination of concepts like working capital, cash budgets, cash management, and short-term borrowing will show that without prudent attention to this area, financial distress will occur. Firms need to line up their needed capital not when they need it but before they need it. Hence, the planning and control functions that come into play in short-term financial planning are mandatory activities for all businesses, huge or small.

    In this discussion, by being exposed to cash management and planning concepts, you will develop a better understanding and appreciation of the importance of this part of the finance discipline to the ongoing solvency of businesses.

    Research a new start-up company (in business 1–2 years) that went bankrupt because they grew too fast. Explain how that can happen as it relates to short-term cash management.

    Performance Management and the Employee Experience

    $30.00

    HR Challenge: Performance Management and the Employee ExperiencePrepare a 10-12 slide presentation to persuade the company’s owner of the many positive changes that support the employee experience and the value of performance management. Each slide should include speaker notes that flesh out the information listed on the slide.The employee’s life and performance in the workplace are viewed through a very different lens than they once wereand the “once were” was not very long ago. New employees are coming to organizations with a higher set of expectations across a myriad of different person-to-organization touchpoints. From the pre-joining brand attraction phase to onboarding and required early career training, a smooth, professional, and engaging process is expected. For this assessment, you will be creating a presentation that is intended to convince your company’s owneryou work in a founderbased organization-that a modern employee experience is of value. Key areas such as employee engagement, communication, and performance evaluation should all be aligned. Employees should be encouraged through robust learning programs linked to both pay and awards of individual and team recognition rich with meaning and symbols. Lastly, employees should receive meaningful performance feedback that focuses on their successes as well as challenges. Feedback should be presented in a way that encourages the employee and reduces the traditional stress associated with the performance appraisal process.The HR concept of the employee experience comes from the field of marketing and seeks to provide HR professionals and their clients a very different perspective of work and the workplace. This means many different things to different people. It may mean well-conceived and executed onboarding processes, access to good cuisine, an accommodating place to work, opportunities for advancement, work rotations, or personal growth. The challenge is to create the best possible experience for the employees in the organization, which will attract employees with high potential to make valuable contributions. Determining what makes work a positive experience by a significant majority is similar to benefits programs but from the view of demographic influences, and there will be generational differences and lifestyle-oriented preferences.Assessment IntroductionScenarioThis assessment examines how to assess the effectiveness of a performance management process and how to design and manage the employee experience (organization perspective) in a legacy architectural engineering company.You work in a founder-based organization. The company designs large bridges for locations all over the world. It is located in a small town and is the largest employer in the area. The company has a great technical reputation in the business, but they have not had a human resources professional working in the organization until you arrived. The company has a tough, somewhat dated, approach to many things.There is no on-boarding process; employees are expected to start work day one of their employment.

    There are no performance appraisals at the end of the year, and employees who have performance problems are separated and never get a chance to grow and reach their full potential.There are no recognition programs and employees seem confused about how to move up in the organization.There are promotions, but there does not seem to be any rhyme or reason as to how people are selected for advancement.While design and engineering work is detailed and complicated, no employees have an office. Cubicles are very small and very close to each other.Current employees complain they have nowhere nearby to eat.For this assessment, you will be creating a persuasive presentation that is intended to convince your company’s owner that a modern employee experience is of value. Key areas such as employee engagement, communication, and performance evaluation should all be aligned. Employees should be encouraged through robust learning programs linked to both pay and awards of individual and team recognition rich with meaning and symbols. Lastly, employees should receive meaningful performance feedback that focuses on their successes as well as challenges. Feedback should be presented in a way that encourages the employee and reduces the traditional stress associated with the performance appraisal process. Your ChallengePrepare a PowerPoint presentation, including speaker notes for each slide, to persuade the company’s owner of the many positive changes that support the employee experience and the value of performance management. In the process, consider the organizational challenges you will face. Also, discuss the potential negative impact associated with change. How can you make employees feel valued, ensure they have opportunities for future growth with the organization, and encourage them to commit to a long-term professional relationship? What can be done to provide employees valuable performance feedback in a professional and effective manner that is both fair and objective?Assessment InstructionsPrepare a 10–12 slide presentation that states your recommended course of action.

    The Employee Experience – Pathways to Employee

    $15.00

    HR Challenge: The Employee Experience – Pathways to Employee Success and Retention Prepare a 3-4-page report on how you plan to approach employee talent development, employee success, retention, and the employee experience issues with viable recommendations for solutions.What is the employee experience from the employee’s perspective? The employee experience is when an employee considers their work more than just a job. Employers hope for that possibility, even though it is unlikely every employee in the organization will attain a high level of enjoyment from their work and their work environment. The employee perspective means pride in their employment and a passion for what they do, whom they do it with, and respect for their organizational leadership.We have arrived at a time in history where talent matters and retaining that talent is not a simple or inexpensive process. Employees today desire a great deal more than employees have in the past. Work has become more important to employees than ever before. Expectations for dynamic, interesting work and a work environment that enhances the process of work grows ever greater each year. The workplace takes up the vast majority of an employee’s life, and this previously accepted tradition of work not being fun or even tolerable has been rejected. In addition, the idea that an employee’s career is for them to manage may be true, but management can make that a great deal more exciting and productive if the pathways to success are clear and available.Assessment Introduction ScenarioYou are an HR professional at a large teaching hospital with responsibility for the areas of employee talent development and employee experience (sometimes called employee perspective). The hospital’s mission is to integrate a broad spectrum of clinical care, teaching, and research, with special emphasis on the health of children and their families, for two states on the east coast of the United States.Recently, you have observed high rates of turnover across a number of occupations. Licensed practical nurses, radiologist technicians, surgical technicians, pharmacy technicians, medical assistants, laboratory technicians, and dietitian assistants are at the top of the list of people your hospital cannot keep. You have been conducting exit interviews and talking to current employees

    about what the areas of concern are that could be influencing the high rate of turnover.As it turns out, another hospital in the area that has been aggressively recruiting new employees. The hospital is associated with a medical school and an external physician assistance program.

Work time for physical fitness.Co-located complimentary daycare for second and third shift staff. A gourmet cafeteria. These benefits are part of what the private hospital calls a comprehensive work-life career-investment program for employees. Your institution has a legacy cafeteria and nothing that mirrors the other hospital’s employee experience program. Additionally, recent engagement surveys indicate that employees are not getting the career guidance from team leaders and supervisors that they think they should. Several surveys of employees found that they felt they are not valued or considered part of the organization and that “only doctors and RNs really mattered.”Your ChallengeThis assessment examines how to assess the effectiveness of employee talent development and employee experience (employee perspective).

Making the type of changes that the other hospital made is a major effort in cost and from an organizational culture and employee-valuing perspective.What challenges might you face from your own HR director? From medical staff leaders and others?
