Module 1

Module 1 Discussion

What
are considered to be the functions of the manager from an HR perspective and
how good do you think you are at performing these functions? Be sure to cite
(APA) where appropriate.

Module 2 Discussion

Discuss
what the major Forecasting Demand and Employee Supply approaches (p. 127-133)
are about. Then, address what types of Forecasting Demand and Employee Supply
approaches are used in an organization you are familiar with (it could be your
work setting or not—no need to mention the organization’s name if you prefer
not to) and if are there any HR Information Systems discussed in your text that
might help this organization plan better. Don’t forget to cite your sources
used.

Module 3 Discussion

Discuss
the major tenets of Title VII of the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and the Civil
Rights Act of 1991. Then, take on the role of supervisor of a unit in a
computer software company which has approximately 200 employees. You have been
told by your boss that you must downsize your unit, in order to help the
company save money in these “tough economic times.” After reviewing the matter
with the other managers in your organization, you decide that you will have to
terminate 4 employees. These employees just happen to be of African-American
descent and they are all over 40 years of age. After notifying the employees,
they object to being terminated. You claim that you are entitled to let them
go. What parts of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and 1991 apply and what parts of
the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) of 1967 may apply? What issues
do you believe the EEOC will use to decide whether to pursue the case? Do you
think that your decision will prevail, and why or why not, based on these Acts
and how the courts have typically decided these types of cases? Do you think
that the ultimate decision will be “just” for the parties involved? Use
citations where appropriate (APA).

Module 4 Discussion

Discuss the costs and
benefits (meeting or exceeding quotas, turnover rates of recruits, success of
the recruits on the job, job acceptances via different sources, and estimates
of quality of hires) of a recruitment strategy used by a particular organization
that you are familiar with (either your own or some other setting). You may
need to estimate, gather from experts and/or guess at some of these figures. Be
sure to cite (APA) where appropriate.

Module 5 Discussion

Discuss why managers
need to know about the benefits and services offered in their organizations and
discuss what are considered to be some of the more common ones. Be sure to
discuss the basics of each mandated and/or voluntary option. Remember to cite appropriately
(APA).

Module 6 Discussion

What
career development stage (early, midcareer, and/or preretirement for instance)
would you say you are in at present and what concerns are associated with this
stage? Finally, discuss how your boss might better meet your needs and the
organization’s needs in light of this information. Cite where appropriate
(APA).

Module 7 Discussion

Discuss what the
Progressive Approach to discipline, the Positive Approach to discipline, and
the GAP approach (listen to AVP to get more information) are all about. What do
you see as the essential elements (commonalities) of these approaches? Do any
of these approaches give you concerns as a manager? Which approach do you think
you would prefer to use if you were working with a difficult employee and why?
Cite where appropriate (APA).

Module 8 Discussion

Discuss
how the elements of a good Health, Safety, and Wellness Program might relate to
workforce productivity. Are there any studies relating to this topic, and
what do they show? Be sure to cite where appropriate (APA).

sample performance test(s), cognitive ability test(s), personality inventory, a
polygraph, reference checks, a physical exam if appropriate, etc.—whatever
approaches you think might be appropriate) for your organization (or one that
you are familiar with) for an entrance level managerial job. Be sure to build
your selection procedures around the job analysis results that you obtained
from the previous assignment; specifying where you are tapping what tasks with
what selection procedures. Be sure to discuss the nature of the
managerial job first, and then build a procedure that has multiple parts, being
sure to discuss what is known about the reliability, validity, utility and the
legal concerns you might have with each part of the procedure. Finally, be sure
to discuss the strategic importance of each part of the procedure for the
organization (why you might be recommending each part). This document should be
approximately 8 pages long, double spaced, with appropriately formatted (APA)
citations and bibliography. You might need to do some research on this outside
of your text

Module 5 assignment

Discuss what are considered to be “good”
characteristics of a performance appraisal system and then discuss how these
better systems might be paired up with compensation and benefit packages that
really motivate employees. Hint: you may want to look at programs such as
gainsharing plans, etc. Is there any evidence that they work and that they are
fair and create a sense of Respect, Personal Development, Responsible
Stewardship, and Integrity in organizations?. Be sure to cite appropriately
(APA). The paper should be approximately 4 pages long.

Module 6 assignment

Briefly
discuss what the major training methods encompass and discuss whether they work
or not (any studies and/or evidence that they work).

ClickHEREfor
the list of methods.

Be sure to cite appropriately (APA)
and to include a bibliography. The paper should be approximately 3 pages long,
double spaced

Final exam paper
Discuss in a 15-page paper with properly formatted APA citations
and bibliography, how the various parts of the human resource system used in an
organization you are familiar with (can be your own or another—no need to name
names, but you should talk about the types of service or products supplied by
the organization) align and support each other. These parts should include the:
• job design issues
• training activities,
• recruitment activities,
• selection approaches used,
• performance appraisal systems,
• promotion systems implemented,
• pay parts, and the other benefits, and
• general supervisory styles and how they tend to support each
other.

Be sure to discuss how these parts seem to be
impacting employee morale, organizational efficiency and productivity, the
work/life balance of the employees and the climate and culture of the
organization. In the conclusion section, outline recommendations for the
organization, recommendations that might make the parts fit together better,
and those that might make employee morale, organizational efficiency and
productivity, work/life balance, and the climate and culture of the
organization match better.

current articles, etc.) to support the arguments and main points made?
