This week we learned about what motivates people at work and the critical role that human resource management plays in any organization. After listening to the video lectures, reading the Businessweek/Harvard Business Review article “Managing People in Their Twenties”, and taking the Myers-Briggs assessment, please respond to the following:
1. What motivates you at work? Is their anything else that management could do to make you a more motivated employee?
2. What are your thoughts on the Businessweek article? Do you agree with the comments on how people in their twenties should be managed? Is there anything else that should be included?
3. With regard to Chapter 11, do you think it is important to orient new employees to an organization? Should training and development be the responsibility of the organization, the employee, or both? Explain your answer.
4. After taking the Myers-Briggs assessment, what was your score and what did you learn about yourself? How will that help in working with others in an organization?
Make sure you respond to at least 2 classmates’ postings.
