"

Congress allocates approximately $220 million annually for TAA training (Labor, 2006). Each year, the U.S. Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration allocates 75% of available TAA funds, or $165 million (Labor, 2006). The remaining 25% of funds are reserved for states experiencing large, unexpected layoffs during the year. States may request additional money from the reserve account after they have spent at least 50% of the allocated TAA funds (Labor, 2006). "

As this allotment and others like it illustrate the job programs in place are designed to help those who have educations or trade backgrounds and experience.

They provide additional benefits and perks to those in that position but for those who are unskilled and have been laid off of minimum wage positions the job programs do very little to assist them.

When most people think of Anheuser-Busch, they will often associate it with a large multinational company that produces Budweiser. While this is true, the firm has operations in 23 countries and employs 116 thousand people worldwide. This means that they must utilize different strategies for attracting and retaining key personnel. To fully understand how this takes place there will be a focus on: recruitment strategies, the way the organization classifies job opportunities, factors for determining the right mix of local / international employees, the benefits and expatriate programs. Together, these different elements will provide the greatest insights as to how the firm is able to locate and hold onto critical talent. ("Anheuser-Busch," 2012)

93). This approach allows members of the team to act autonomously; that is, once the supervisor is selected each member of the team has their own target to hit, and their own method or tools for realizing their target or goal. When they achieve this goal, they are rewarded through recognition of their efforts and greater autonomy or a promotion. This in turn may lead to increases in status or pay within the organization, which improve motivation and fulfills any financial goals a team member may have.

Goal setting theory needs to be strengthened as it promotes knowledge sharing in the organization. eeve (2001) notes in his goal setting theory (p. 199) that setting goals is critical to the success and productivity of an individual and team members.

It is questionable the degree to which a temporary half-cent sales tax increase would hurt business investment, however.

The challenges that a manager faces at this point are numerous, mainly due to the fact that while the strategic planning was a theoretical, probabilistic evaluation on things that had not occurred, the implementation phase will bring about real challenges, to which the manager must find solutions. The leader needs to be able to react to real-time event, many of which may be unexpected and not identified in the strategic planning phase.

Project management principles are important because they provide a theoretical background for implementing and planning a project, which could be helpful in terms of determining the success of a project.

Job Analysis Is the Process of Gathering

Words: 720 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 58032240

Job analysis is the process of gathering, analyzing, and synthesizing information about jobs (Busi, 2012). It is a critical part of human resources management. It functions to provide answers to questions such as: How much time does it take to complete important tasks?, Which tasks comprise a particular job?, How can a job be structured to enhance employee performance?, and What capabilities and behaviors are needed to perform the job?. A job description is often considered the most important result of job analysis. It lists the duties associated with a role, representing a written summary of the job as an identifiable organizational unit.

The importance of job analysis goes beyond a mere review of a specific role. It actually informs every other aspect of work in human resources (Busi, 2012). For example, recruitment requires an adequate job description to advertise the duties of a position. Similarly, selection and training rely…… [Read More]

Job Creation and Government

JOB CEATION SHOULD NOT BE GOVENMENT'S ESPONSIBILITY

Government in all capitalist nations is actually responsible for efficient allocation and diversion of resources and not for creation of employment opportunities for the people. Capitalist countries thrive on the principle of entrepreneurship and in such countries corporations literally control all economic activity. For this reason, it is impractical to expect the government to intervene when employment opportunities are scarce. Instead government's intervention must be limited to efficient allocation of economic resources and regulation of financial markets through fiscal measures during times of economic slow-down. But under no circumstances, should the government be expected to raise employment level in the country because it is essentially incapable of carrying out the task successfully. It has been noticed that when government is assigned the task of job creation, it does so inefficiently usually hiring more people than needed for various government…… [Read More]

The term "forensics," though, can be applied to a number of different fields; however, all of these disciplines share a common feature in that their work products are specifically used in courts of law or for other legal issues that can mean the difference between life and death in many cases. According to Black's Law Dictionary (1990), the term "forensic" means "belonging to courts of justice," while "forensic engineering" means "the application of the principles and practice of engineering to the elucidation of questions before courts of law" (p. 648). Genetic forensics refers to the diagnosis of otherwise unknown biological material based on analysis of proteins or DNA; this branch of forensics has resulted in hundreds of death row prisoners being freed after they were exonerated through…… [Read More]

Words: 580 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 16584947

Universities are often ranked by the strength or weakness of their graduate programs and the quality of original research the university is able to provide in certain fields of study. Furthermore, in addition to offering traditional graduate programs, the University offers an opportunity for those holding bachelors degrees to earn graduate certificates through work experience. This opportunity will be appealing to those students seeking post-graduate education but who need to work rather than being full-time graduate students.

The University's outside business partnerships also offer benefits to students. Most universities have outside business partnerships, such as vendor relationships with on-campus providers. However, the University goes beyond traditional vendor-relationships. It actively cultivates a wide variety of partnerships with businesses, which increases its access to research opportunities. Furthermore, these established relationships with corporations help increase internship programs and also promote the hiring of graduates. The influx of corporate money to the school helps…… [Read More]

Brick and mortar universities offer attractive networking opportunities for students that are not as easily utilized online.

Of course, it might be argued by a dedicated University of Phoenix student that the experience of working while attending classes is just as valuable as being a member of a university lacrosse team, university newspaper, or debate team. Furthermore, the maturity and responsibility of juggling work and school can be beneficial, and is something that more traditional university students must sacrifice. University of Phoenix students can still discuss their course matter online with students and faculty, and may be better able to see the relevance of learning in the real world, since they are a part of that world as workers. Furthermore, students can spend more time with their families while attending school.

Another challenge facing the industry today is the important legal issues that surround the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (Koehn & Del Vecchio, 2004). One of these is the fact that the process of due diligence practiced by many companies is now taking much longer (Koehn & Del Vecchio, 2004). There is a higher degree of caution than was previously utilized and because of this many companies are discovering information that would have gone unnoticed before the Act was passed. This is, however, not the only legal issue that the Sarbanes-Oxley Act has caused (Koehn & Del Vecchio, 2004). Another concern is that accountants and attorneys could now be required to report the known wrongdoings of corporations that they have business with to authorities.

Since lawyers are now required to disclose these types of issues, the attorney-client privilege has been compromised by this Act (Koehn & Del Vecchio, 2004). However, the Act was…… [Read More]

While the ureau of Labor Statistics was extraordinarily helpful in researching the marketing manager occupation, the United States Department of Labor was not very helpful. For occupational specific information, this Web site refers the visitor to the ureau of Labor Statistics. The United States Department of Labor primarily provides general information regarding labor statistics and labor rights and doesn't drill down to specific occupations. Therefore, the site isn't that useful for a job search, but is more appropriate to companies for understanding the laws they must comply with and for workers to understand the laws that protect them and what to do if they have not been followed.

Furthermore, there are many reasons as to why experts and the healthcare facilities are unable to hire enough people to fulfill the positions within their establishments, and most research has determined that the main reasons there is such a shortage in nursing jobs is because of the poor management and leadership within the nursing work environment, the increased amount of responsibility and work load…… [Read More]

How the Outsourcing Job Influence the U S Economy

Outsourcing" on the U.S. Economy

The increasing trend of outsourcing of jobs from the United States in recent years has assumed alarming proportions. Most projections indicate that the present trend is going to accelerate in future. The issue has invited greater attention recently as more and more categories of white collar jobs are now being outsourced by the U.S. companies while in the past only lower paid industrial jobs were affected. Some economists including officials of the present U.S. administration have shrugged off the phenomenon as part of economic globalization and believe that it would prove beneficial for the U.S. economy in the long-term. Others are of the view that the negative impact of outsourcing far outweighs its positive effect. In this essay, I shall highlight the negative effects of outsourcing on the U.S. economy, besides outlining the current and future trends in out-sourcing.

Such processes are made even more efficient by the implementation of an efficient goal-system. As suggested above, the goals are established at individual level, at the group of employees performing similar tasks and at the level of the supervisor and departmental level.

The implementation of the new positions inside the department should be performed by taking into consideration employees' skills and motivation. The progress of the job redesign project should be monitored closely. Feedback sessions may be held in order to examine the challenges and progresses faced.

I say this knowing that not all Muslims are bad people. In fact, growing up some of my best friends were people of Islamic faith.

job is largely an outgrowth of the industrial revolution's efficiency demands. There was a widespread notion of substitution of machine power for people power, management specialists Adam Smith and Fredrick Taylor have given their remarkable contribution in creating positive correlation between specialization and efficiency (Litterer, 1969). Among the management experts and managers the popularity of specialized and short cycle jobs have climbed its peak. Job specialization was initiated in organizations by breaking down jobs into its lowest level and designing jobs for each part. It evolves specialization, expertise and improved quality. Job specialization implication is seen in workplace in manufacturing and assembly lines where workers were specialized for specific task for the whole shift.

In job specialization the same task is repeated whole day long. The benefits of job specialization can be drawn from the concept of 'Division of labor' proposed by Adam Smith. Smith had a strong conviction that…… [Read More]

An orthographic definition is one which is formalistic in the sense of being bound to the form of a word in a particular medium. It is not sensitive to distinctions of meaning or grammatical function. To this extent it is not complete" (1998, p. 4). Therefore, in an effort to help complete the definition, a reference to Webster's advises that a word is simply "something that is said" (1999, p. 2633).

Unfortunately, this formal definition does little to clear the muddied waters with respect to what a word is, and Carter (1998) suggests that, "It may be more accurate to define a word as the minimum meaningful unit of language. This allows us to differentiate the separate meanings contained in the word fair in so far as they can be said to be different semantic units" (p. 5). Furthermore, this definition fails to embrace the polysemous nature of many words.…… [Read More]

Job Evaluation, Market Pricing & Pay Structures

Job evaluation is a division of the salary management practice. It is a methodical examination of the relative demands that work places on a worker. Job evaluation results in a relative ranking of positions. This position, frequently expressed in terms of salary grades, is the foundation for the classification of salary ranges (Hilling, 2003). Market pricing is an organization of gathering data on the pay rates for comparable jobs in other companies to set up their market rate or price and track movements in those rates. The objective of the process is to help set the organization's own pay rates at the suitable level in order to employ and retain the personnel it desires (Graebner & Seaweard, 2004). While market pricing has forever been the foremost way that companies establish their pay levels, the lack of valuable survey data has been…… [Read More]

Malik could address this by allowing her to move up, recommending her for promotion, or promoting her himself if he has the authority to do so. Any kind of promotion might entice her to stay, and if she cannot be promoted (due to a lack of vacancies or other reasons), than Malik may want to work with her to find something else she can do that will be fulfilling. Perhaps she can get involved with other teams or committees, or an assistant can be hired to help her with the work that she finds so unfulfilling, so she can help the company with work she finds more interesting and challenging. Ultimately, there are many options for employees when management wishes to retain them.

Tomorrow, Malik should meet with the employee and should really listen to what she has to say about the job she is doing and the problems she…… [Read More]

Job Outsourcing on the U S

Also, their variety has increased. For example, there are dozens of hairdryers on the market, produced by several companies, from large ones, like Panasonic, Philips, or Braun, to smaller producers that address this field also.

These companies can now afford to introduce many types of hairdryers because they are manufactured in Asian regions, and their production costs have reduced, allowing them to expand their product range and to promote smaller prices that are attractive to customers.

Although these companies produce numerous types of hairdryers, the products of different companies are almost identical. There is little product differentiation. The quality of the products is similar, they provide similar benefits, they almost have the same price, the technology they use is similar, even their shape is similar. They mainly differ in color, and name.

Given the circumstances it does not matter much what brand the customer chooses to purchase. The customer makes…… [Read More]

Job Study and Its Impact

Business Management

Job Study & Its Impact

Due to the fact that Dirt Finder has undergone such a tremendous loss and is now in a position to hire a mass amount of people, there is no better time than the present to undertake a job study to find out what they really need. Because the company was founded on the experience of their employees there have never been any formal job descriptions in place. Employees have always just done what is needed. Doing a job study will help the company to better identify what positions they need to hire for and what kind of person they are looking for that will be the best fit with those who already work there.

In addition to the early nurses' aide job at Westwood, I also performed front desk duties to gain a better understanding of hospital administration. Greeting family members, ordering supplies, maintaining and copying records, answering phones, and completing admissions and discharge papers kept me busy and helped create an organized and efficient working environment at Westwood. I enjoyed working at the front desk almost as much as I enjoyed working one-on-one with the patients as a nurses' aide. Because I enjoyed the front desk job at Westwood and felt confident and capable, I am currently seeking a career in medical records.

A key reason why I enjoyed working at Westwood was the nursing staff. Surrounded by supportive coworkers, I thrived and never grew discouraged even when we worked long hours or with difficult patients. My supervisor Liz became like a friend to me. One of the ways I gauge my success is through the eyes of my friends and family: the people I know and trust offer me feedback that helps me make changes in my attitude or skill set when appropriate. Unfortunately, Westwood was forced to shut down due to financial troubles and in 2002 I returned home to Illinois. Undeterred, I am now pursuing a higher degree to learn more about medical office procedures. The next phase of my health care career will be in the field of medical records. Because of my experiences at Westwood, working as a nurses' aide and as a front desk clerk, I feel confident and sure of my success.

My decision to pursue a career in medical records reflects the positive experiences I encountered at Westwood Hospital in Texas. No matter where I work in the future, I will reflect on what I learned at Westwood and incorporate those lessons into improving my productivity and helpfulness. The health care profession focuses on serving the needs of others: patients, coworkers, and doctors. As I expand my skills and knowledge base and acquire more training, I will offer the highest quality service as possible.
