Staffing Plan

Comprehensive Staffing Plan

Engineering and manufacturing requires many individuals who are adept at skilled labor. Additionally, there are unskilled laborers who can also be of use to a company that engineers and manufacturers goods. In a city such as this one, however, there are large challenges, such as a lack of a skilled workforce and many people who are on public assistance. College graduates and professionals are not that common, because many of them leave and move to others areas where high-tech hubs can be found. While the company in question here cannot focus its efforts on stopping that tide of workers who are leaving, there are ways in which it can reach out to and recruit people who have the skills - or are developing the skills - for which the company is looking. That can go a long way toward a company that workers want to…… [Read More]

They will be trained in what the employee needs to know right away. So whether this is certain functional skills or for a low-level retail job it is more likely to learn about the organizational culture, that manager will be able to convey only the needed information during this initial encounter phase.

An important component during the encounter phase is to have a series of seminars over the first few weeks -- perhaps with multiple new employees -- where the employees can receive supplemental training that reinforces what they are learning from their supervisors and from the first trainer. It is also important to have a mentor at this stage. I find that the mentor can be somebody who is in the same position, but who has been around a while and is a good representative. The role of the mentor is just to help the new recruit learn more…… [Read More]

budget process, "make" or "buy" decisions, and non-financial performance measures.

The initial budget process starts with the existing budget, and the information in this budget should be verified, and reconciled against actual performance. You have to know that your starting point is accurate. The second step in the budgeting process is to determine the information flows and measures that will be used to create the budget. A budget depends on having accurate information, and this step is necessary to ensure that the information is accurate. The third step in the budgeting process is to determine a methodology that will be used. When you have an existing budget and an ongoing business, that is usually the starting point, but there are still several different choices of methodology that can be used.

Recent Trends in Human Resources

Training is one of the critical areas that SEIIC needs to address in order to maintain its advantages in human capital. The company has experienced turnover in recent years, and this increases the need for it to improve the talent base of those who remain. There are a number of trends in training at present that SEIIC can adopt in order to improve the training of its employees. The first is with respect to new employee training and onboarding. The learning curve is steepest for new employees, but they need to know not only critical task skills but also about the organizational culture and the soft skills that are expected of them. etention is also added through better onboarding, as the onboarding training relates to having better task clarity, which in turn allows employees to enjoy better performance.

Healthcare and its evolution due to the Affordable Care Act

Onboarding Project

Healthcare regulation and industry standards have long been focused on patient care and treatment. This is rightfully so as healthcare costs as a percentage of GDP continues to rise to unsustainable levels. In addition a patient focus is necessitated by an increase in the overall insured population. However, not much emphasis has been placed on the practitioner side of legislative changes. Nurses in particular must now adhere to changing standards of care and treatment. The insured population has become much more diversified in the expectations of care and treatment. As a result, all healthcare employees must be properly trained to better adhere to these changing standards and demographics. Nightingale Home Care is no different in this regard. With increased employee dissatisfaction and high turnover, the firm must reassess its onboarding practices. This will ultimately insure a better work environment, but more importantly, improve patient care.

Words: 625 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 94205090

Human esource Management

Human resources departments play several important functions in a company. Key roles including the recruitment and retention of talent, administration of benefits, and adjudication of disputes. Increasingly, the human resources role is being viewed as strategic in nature, and can even be a source of competitive advantage in the information economy (ay, 2016). This paper will outline some of these key roles for H, and explain why they are important to exceling in the modern business environment.

The first role is with hiring/recruiting of employees. In today's business environment, knowledge is power. Workers are easy to find, but talented ones are scarce, and there is intense competition for quality workers. So one of the most important roles for H is to continue to bring good people into organizations, as this will help the organization to remain competitive and innovative, if it has the best people (Mcgrath, 2008).…… [Read More]

Dealing With Turnover HRM

Words: 2142 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 73544797

businesses, in particular because there is a productivity drop that occurs when an experienced worker is replaced by an inexperienced one. What happens is that the company will see productivity drop, and this can affect the financial results, so the more turnover there is the worse the financial impact will be. If the turnover rate is high enough, as occurs in poorly-run establishments, then it becomes the blind leading the blind and the organization's effectiveness is likely to be plummet.

The influences of turnover include perceived lack of procedural justice, lower than market compensation, and a perceived lack of a career pathway. Employees want to feel that there is mutual commitment between them and the organization, but they also want to feel that they are working towards their life goals, and that the company is a place where they can do that. Providing such a vision is important to employee…… [Read More]

strategic HM

There are a number of career paths within SHM. These include the human resource generalists, but also a growing number of specialists. Some of the specialties where the strategic human resources practitioner can contribute to the company's success are workforce planning, workforce development/onboarding, total rewards/compensation, labor and employee relations, training and risk management.

Organizations have begun to recognize that these specialized roles can be an important part in meeting the organization's strategic objectives. In the knowledge economy in particular, it is the skills, knowledge and experience of the employees that will often give a company its competitive advantage. Systems can be replicated by competitors fairly easily, but a superior workforce is much harder to duplicate. It begins with recruitment and onboarding, where finding the right candidates to execute the company's strategy is critical. Even with good people, they typically need to be trained.

Organizational Behavior and People Management Motivating Long-Term

Organizational Behavior and People Management

Motivating long-term company employees

Competitive remuneration cannot be used in isolation to motivate employees of a company that is focusing on its long time future. Money, an extrinsic motivation, is believed to extinguish intrinsic motivation like achievement motivation. However, money can be used as an indicator of success for various motives. To make long time company employees develop interest in the company's long-term future, some elements of innovation have to be integrated. As the CEO of the company I would initiate college scholarship schemes for veteran employees who may be having interest in furthering their education to be at par with the company's technological advances. College scholarship programs can also be extended to these employees' grandchildren because many grandparents still help with college bills. Long-term employees can also be given the first choice in vacation and shift-schedule request (Sixel, 2011).

I would also provide special…… [Read More]

Career Page, the company has the tag line "connect to something bigger," and this illustrates the way that Starbucks' human resources strategy aligns with its overall strategy. First and foremost, Starbucks is in the service industry, selling the Starbucks Experience to its customers. To provide that service, the company wants to hire motivated people that provide a consistently high level of service.

Controlling for the informality or formality of Web 2.0 tools use is required, as many instructors are relying on the conversational and broadcast functionality of social networks as a substitute for e-mail. Still, the informal aspects of social networking applications including Web 2.0 tools and their anticipated benefits as a learning tool must be indexed or evaluated from their actual effectiveness in assisting learned to gain mastery of subjects. Creating this link between Web 2.0 tool effectiveness and their relative perception of value with respondents to this study will require a research design that can isolate attitudinal and effectiveness measures while not introducing sampling bias or error.

Words: 709 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 61220466

Managing High Performance

A familiar challenge for any expanding enterprise is how to find and manage the highest potential employees who can over time mature into leadership positions. While there are always more applicants that positions available in senior management, the task of any leadership team is to accurately and with insight find those employees with the greatest potential of success (uggiero, 2008). From the very informal succession planning techniques small businesses use that are tantamount of planning sessions, to the much more rigorous and thorough high potential employee development programs, there is a very wide variation in approach and results (Bloch, 1996). The intent of this analysis is to provide a small, rapidly growing company with insights into how best to manage the dilemma of having 50% of its workforce looking to advance their careers with a limited number of positions available while also giving the majority of employees…… [Read More]

Analysis of Learning Methods and the Impact of Computer-Based Training (CBT) Programs

Compare and contrast the four differences in learning styles. Propose ways a trainer can help each type of learner.

The four differences in learning styles are often characterized by convergers, divergers, assimilators and accommodators (Mumford, Honey, 1992). There are significant differences between each, and the intent of this analysis is to compare and contrast them with each other. The converger learning style typifies learners who rely on conceptual learning including visualization and abstract learning, supported by active experimentation. It is comparable to the assimilator learning style in that both rely on abstract conceptualization of learning materials and concepts, in addition to a reliance on theoretical models. The converger learning style differences from the other four in its intensity of focus on taking information and intelligence and turning it into pragmatic thought (Mumford, Honey, 1992). The other learning…… [Read More]

Hidden Job Market Planning a Career in

Words: 798 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 48160323

Hidden Job Market

Planning a career in human resource management takes someone who understands people and how to work with them. Even with that ability, it is not always easy to tap into the "hidden" job market of unadvertised jobs that are only given to people because of others who know them. These hidden jobs are not found online or in the newspaper, but are passed down through word of mouth and offered to people that are already part of an organization, group, culture, or "inner circle." With that being the case, the real concern for anyone is how to get into that inner circle so that he or she is able to get the kinds of jobs that are needed and/or desired. In order to be successful in the hidden job market, networking is the key - but there are several ways to use networking. The main ideas behind…… [Read More]

This phase also includes the definition of market-competitive base salaries, merit increases, benefits, bonuses and incentives. It is also the area where benefits are budgeted for and offered. Many practitioners and managers both see this as the most critical phase of the HM lifecycle for retention as a result (Ulferts, Wirtz, Peterson, 2009). In fact it is the development of jobs that have a wider span of responsibilities and link personal achievement to the attainment of challenging goals rather than making pay purely dependent on minimal levels of performance (Pilenzo, 2009). HM can help employees find challenge and meaning in their work by using the strategies in this phase of the lifecycle with intelligence. The role of salaries and benefits in terms of giving employees a sense of autonomy is also critical not only for employee satisfaction and the marketing of a company to potential employees as world-of-mouth is one…… [Read More]

Leadership and Self-Assessment

Organizational Behavior

An Analysis of how Self-Evaluation and Self-Assessment relates to Leadership Today

The modern organizational environment must keep pace with changes that are occurring at a historically unprecedented rate. Many of these changes are driven by technology and require that leaders continually learn new skills in order to stay abreast of needed skill requirements. It is often the case that a leader will have difficulty getting performance feedback from their superiors because they generally do not work in close contact with supervisors and in some case may not even have one at all. Therefore a leader must rely on self-assessments primarily to further develop the skill set that will allow them to help their organization create or maintain a competitive advantage.

What is the role of learning in change processes? Pay particular attention to the ideas of Naomi aab

Learning is a galvanizing factor across all change processes in that it unifies each step in the process and over time creates an experience effect that creates greater levels of knowledge over time. The role of learning in change processes is also non-linear, a key finding of management and organizational design theorist Naomi aab. Her practice and writings show how effective the dissemination of learning is throughout organizations. The development of information and knowledge ecosystems throughout organizations is also predicated on this foundation of shared learning and the creation of a system of record from a cultural and learning standpoint.

Ms. aab's insights into how to heal hurting and dysfunctional companies also form the basis of her approaches to defining the role of learning in change processes. In defining strategies…… [Read More]

The organization's function of Human esource (H) has also changed so fast resulting in a changing environment of social and organizational terms, while information technologies have rapidly evolved. H has grown to be an essential component in firm sustainability. This has resulted in the formation of new practices and processes in H. Some of the new practices include an E-selection, E-performance, E-recruitment, and E-learning.

The model includes several mediator (e.g., knowledge exchange) and moderator variables (e.g., self-leadership competencies of actors) that explain why and when this approach is effective and looks at leadership in more of a comprehensive way than focusing on one individual. Such perspectives have suggested that when employees become involved in the decision making processes then this can strengthen leadership.

Transactional Leadership

Transactional leadership is the leadership model that represents what most people view as the concept of management. Transactional leadership is defined by an exchange relationship between the managers and the employees that are all motivated by their own self-interests and meeting the expectations that are associated with their job description. Transactional leadership consists of monitoring, controlling, and motivating employees through economic incentives and other types of exchange incentives (Bass, 1985). Most of the motivation in this model stems from financial exchanges such as by either salaries, performance…… [Read More]

Brief Overview of Costco's Compensation System

Costco has a unique compensation system within its industry. The company competes as a cost leader, where it features low prices as a means of winning business. Cost leaders typically try to have rock bottom costs throughout their operations, from the supply chain to labor and everywhere in between. These competitors will use their bargaining power to get the cheapest labor possible, bargaining down wages, benefits and other perks. This often results in a poor quality labor pool with high levels of turnover, but these companies accept that as part of having a low cost labor pool and account for that is the design of the low cost business model (Lutz, 2013).

The approach that the company has to compensation is therefore counterintuitive to the way that most of its competitors run their human resources, but there is internal logic to Costco's…… [Read More]

Their content specifications may encompass the specific technical demands of the job; a broad range of the company's H policies (including payroll, promotions, anti-discrimination policies, etcetera); policies on harassment, civility, and discrimination; and even basic information like parking regulations. Both the technical and the practical may be encompassed within an online orientation. Still, new employees can easily feel overwhelmed so the content should be relevant to their most pertinent concerns (minutiae can always be addressed later). Employees likely want to know how they are expected to behave, how they will be evaluated in terms of their performance, and any knowledge required for their day-to-day job tasks.

The examination is aimed at determining what type of support leaders new to an executive role requires and how to on-board leaders who are experienced, but who are new to a particular organization. The possible implications of this research is that if the on-boarding process is insufficient, then it may contribute to high turnover rates and the short length of chief nursing officer positions.

This memo is intended to establish the kind of process development software that the company can use right now to enhance the performance of the H department and be able to better monitor the performance of employees and be able to provide feedback in real time.

For this purpose, I make the following suggestion.

While it has been suggested by some that the company can make use of the enterprise resource planning software for enhancement of performance, I suggest the use of HIS for the same purpose. The reasons for this are that I am of the view that the HIS is better suited to serve the company in its present growth phase than an EP software.

While EP can be described as a process of management which is used for better management of the…… [Read More]

Wages and How They Can Destroy the World

Words: 642 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 17409295

Compensation has become a very contentious issue within the developed world of late. Economies are continuing to struggle. The EU has created a form of quantitative easing designed to restore wage growth and stimulate the economy. China is slowing as it transitions into a consumer driven economy as oppose to an export driven economy. Brazil is struggling with massive inflation and unemployment resulting in a recession for the country. America continues to grow but only at a 2% rate. This is well below the 3% GDP growth that many economist and experts are expecting. The world is lagging behind its historical trends of growth and development. As a result, compensation growth will naturally lag. Issues abound about how to properly stimulate compensation and wage growth throughout the world. The issue is particularly important for America, with 70% of GDP resulting from consumption of goods and services. This consumption will not…… [Read More]

Healthcare and EHR Systems That Work

One of which is a high standard for patient care. Antiquated systems, a higher insured population, and new regulations all impede the quality improvement process. Therefore, it is necessary to form a dedicated team of professionals who focus solely on the quality improvement issue. The selection of this subcommittee is vital in regards to the actual success of such a program. As a result, the process of identifying and onboarding subcommittee team members can become a complicated process.

Healthcare and proper managment

Words: 827 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 18094349

Patient safety is a very important element with the overall healthcare system. egulations and new initiatives set forth by the Affordable Care Act have created much elevated culture of safety. As a result, facilities must now alter the manner in which they deliver and administer treatment to patients. A culture that once focused on transactions and bloated costs has now been replaced with one predicated on safety. Creating a culture of safety is no easy task however. In fact, it can be particularly difficult when older employee habits have been deeply engrained in the daily processes of work. To create a culture of safety, management must first communicate its expectations to all stakeholders involved. Communication is an integral aspect of patient safety. Communication is important because it sets the overall tone within the organization. Communication regarding expectations is particularly potent when top-level management is heavily involved. Consistent emphasis on quality…… [Read More]

The reason that these threats exist is simple -- there's money in it. ansomware is used to get quick payment from companies, and stolen information can be sold on the dark web. But what companies need to know is that most cyberattacks rely on somebody within the company making a mistake, for the criminals to get the access they need. So training is key to preventing cybercrime.

Hightowers Petroleum Company a middle sized company is initiating a project with the objective of unifying the different personalities that make up the company's workforce. This objective stands as the broad objective in trying to bridge the cultural differences among the organization's workforce. In the organization differences of the employee's background have brought about different cultures that seem to result in conflict upon attempts in moderating the workforce to observe common values, practices and perspectives on the organization's pertinent issues. In organization's where there are no commonly held perspectives, values or norms, there is a likelihood of disintegration of objectives owing to lack of a common culture (Hofstede, 2001).

Employer Problem High Turnover Rates in Customer

Words: 2579 Length: 8 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 50503743

Employer Problem: High Turnover ates in Customer Service

In the customer service (CS) department, there are problems. The turnover is very high, and there is poor on-boarding for employees that are newly hired. Currently, they are only given a manual and asked to read it. That does not help them if they have questions beyond that manual, and it certainly does not give them any kind of additional training that they could and should receive from the company. Due to the problems there, the CS department has a very low morale and the employees are generally not motivated to do much or make any kind of changes. Because the CS department deals with more than customers, the job can be highly stressful. Many of the newly hired workers are not prepared for this level of stress when they begin their employment.

The programming department, the manufacturing department, compliance, scheduling, and…… [Read More]
