Assignment 4:

Use the ATTACHED article related to HR selection methods, analyzing work, designing jobs, or HR planning. In peer-reviewed journals, the articles were reviewed by other professionals in the field to ensure the accuracy and quality of the articles, which is ideal when writing an article critique.  (500 words)

Research tip: When researching using the databases, you can limit your search to only peer-reviewed articles. To do this, look for the phrase “limit results,” and select “peer-reviewed articles.”

Once you have selected your article, follow the below criteria:

  •  There is a minimum requirement of 500 words for the article critique.
  •  Write a summary of the article. This should be one to three paragraphs in length, depending on the length of the

article. Include the purpose for the article, how research was conducted, the results, and other pertinent

information from the article.

  •  Identify the selection criteria and methods and how they relate to hiring at the organization in the article.
  •  Discuss the meaning or implication of the results of the study that the article covers. This should be one to two

paragraphs. This is where you offer your opinion on the article. Discuss any flaws with the article, how you think it

could have been better, and what you think it all means.

  •  Write one paragraph discussing how the author could expand on the results, what the information means in the

big picture, what future research should focus on, or how future research could move the topic forward. Discuss how knowledge in the area could be expanded.

Any sources used, including the textbook and the article, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations in APA format.

 

Assignment 5:

There are several standardized training events in large organizations that are required annually or biannually. One of these is often sexual harassment. For this assignment, write a training plan for all employees in your firm to educate and develop their awareness of sexual harassment and understanding of legal and organizational policies. Be sure to include training aspects of planning, design, implementation, and evaluation.

This plan should be in narrative form with a minimum requirement of 500 words. Discuss the following guidelines to complete your plan.

  •  Planning: Should all employees be trained at once? If not, who should be trained first? What are the anticipated outcomes or terminal learning objectives of the training?
  •  Design: In what format should the training be given, and why? What modalities will be used for employees on multiple shifts or in multiple locations? What are the core elements of the training that will align with the learning objectives?
  •  Implementation: Who will lead the training, and how will it be implemented? Will you be training for knowledge or behavior change? How will you conduct the actual training to account for knowledge and/or behavioral change?
  •  Evaluation: How will you know if the training was successful? What measures will you use to know if employees

1) learned from the training, 2) behaved differently after the training, and 3) the training has a bottom line impact to the firm?

Any sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted

material must have accompanying citations in APA format.

 

 

Assignment 6:

 

  1. Safety Policies

Recall your chosen firm and industry you have been using throughout the course. For this assignment, you will identify the top three major safety and health issues in your firm, and write a policy on each, consistent with Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) standards. There is a minimum requirement of 300 words for each of the three job policies.

Each of the five domains of OSHA must be considered when writing these three policies:

  1. Hazard communication: How will you notify people of potentially dangerous or unhealthy work conditions?
  2. Blood-borne pathogens: How will you protect employees from blood-borne pathogens such as AIDS?
  3. Personal protective equipment (PPE): What equipment or tools will your employees in this job require to work

safely?

  1. Cumulative trauma disorders (CTDs): How will you prevent CTDs that come from repetitive movement (e.g.,

carpel tunnel syndrome)?

BHR 3352, Human Resource Management 5

  1. Work assignments: How will you handle potentially dangerous work assignments, especially to protect unborn babies?

NOTE: This is a three-part assignment. All three of the policies (300 words each) you write should go on one document. This one document is what will be uploaded to Blackboard.

Any sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations in APA format.

 

Assignment 7:

 

Compensation Purpose and Strategy Document

The purpose of this assignment is to choose a compensation philosophy that is appropriate for your chosen firm and articulate a rationale for this selection.

There are two aspects to this assignment. First, describe the risks and benefits with leading, meeting, and lagging the market in overall compensation and benefits. Next, choose the appropriate strategy (lead, meet, or lag) for your firm, and provide rationale about why this is appropriate.

There is a minimum requirement of 500 words for the compensation purpose and strategy document. Consider some of the following factors in your assignment:

  1. Payroll expenses are usually the highest expense at most firms. If you lead the market, this expense can be taxing.
  2. If you are pursuing top talent in human capital rich industries (e.g., software engineering), lagging the market may keep you from competing for market share against your competitors.
  3. If you meet the market, paying average will generally not attract top talent, and in addition, you will not have the labor-cost savings of a lag-the-market strategy.

Any sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations in APA format.
