Assignment: Primary Outcomes of HR Management

Two primary outcomes of HR management are recruitment and selection. Through HR planning, managers anticipate the future supply of and demand for employees and the nature of workforce issues, including the retention of employees. These factors are used when recruiting applicants for job openings. Being able to recruit and retain the “best” employees has been a difficult task for HR managers. The “best” employees are not necessarily the most qualified individuals (e.g., those with the most education or work experience); they are the individuals who provide value to an organization, who complement the organization, who understand and embrace the organization’s mission, and who fit the culture of the organization. This quandary is a result of a number of different variables such as job satisfaction, organizational commitment, job performance, and motivation.

Furthermore, contemporary HR managers also are tasked with assisting with peak performance initiatives because of escalated global demands and competition.

Homework Case Assignment

Go to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, latest edition (https://www.bls.gov/ooh/ ) and read about a Human Resource Manager generalist position. [A generalist is someone who covers many HR functions, as opposed to a specialist who might be responsible for only one or two functions or sub-functions of HRM.] Assume that this is a position you as an HR consultant need to fill for a client in your home state. In this assignment address each of the following:

Develop/include a job announcement/ad to fill the opening. (1 page or 1-3 slides)
Identify and explain your advertising and recruiting strategies to find candidates qualified for this opening for your client company. (1 page or 2 slides)
Go to a website such as Indeed.com and locate a job announcement for the same position. Alternatively, you can meet with your company’s HRM and review a similar job announcement. Compare the obtained announcement with the one you created and write about the differences you see. Which ones are in the announcement you obtained but not in your created announcement? Which ones are in your announcement but not in the one you found? Would you change your announcement to incorporate any of the differences that you noted being on one announcement but not in the other? Why or why not? (1 page or 1-4 slides)
Describe which recruiting and selection processes you will use to choose the best person for the job. (1 page or 1-2 slides)
Create a recruitment flyer that you could put on your company website. Be creative with this requirement. (Match the flyer design to the company’s industry.)
Support your work by using high-quality references (at least one that is found in the Trident Online Library. High-quality references come from peer-reviewed academic journals.
You have a choice: Your submission can be a 5-page Word document (not counting the cover page or the reference page), a 4- to 5-minute video, or a 10+ slide presentation (not counting the cover slide or reference slide page), with voiceover or added speaker comments on the notes section of each slide.

Proofread your work and make sure it is as professional-appearing as possible. If you are submitting a PowerPoint presentation, remember that people today do not want to watch a PowerPoint presentation with slides that are full of words. They want to see no more than 5 words and a picture on every slide. All those words you want to put on the slides belong only on the note pages. A best practice is to insert one short bullet point on each slide. If you want multiple very short bullet points on one slide, then transition each bullet point in one at a time (although recent studies show people do not want to see transitions, either). In addition, the pictures of people should be real people, not clip art, and pictures of employees of the company are preferable. One exception to this “5 words and a picture” rule is with the required job announcement.

In MGT407 (Principles of Human Resource Management) information literacy is assessed at the “introduced level.” Later, in MGT411 (Advanced Topics in Human Resource Management), you will be assessed for information literacy at the reinforced level, and finally in MGT491 (Capstone in HRM) at the emphasized level. Information literacy assignments build upon each other and aim to offer you the opportunity to enhance and practice your information literacy skills. In the below diagram, you will notice that to be truly ‘information literate’ requires that you simultaneously develop:

* awareness of how you engage with the digital world
* how you find meaning in the information you discover
* how to articulate what kind of information you require
* how to use information ethically
* understand the role you can play in the communication in your profession, and
how you evaluate information for credibility and authority.
These are the things I will grade you on in your assignment submission

Assignment Expectations

The grading rubric for information literacy at the undergraduate level has been developed to measure student success in meeting the MGT407 Case 2 expectations related to information literacy.

Visit Trident’s Student Guide to Writing a High-Quality Academic Paper for instruction on writing papers, citing sources, proper referencing, and so forth.

Your submission will be assessed on the criteria found in the Information Literacy grading rubric for this assignment:

Demonstrate critical thinking and analysis of the relevant issues and HRM actions, drawing on your background reading and research.
Information Literacy: Evaluate resources and select only library/Web-based resources that provide reliable, substantiated information.
Give authors credit for their work. Cite sources of borrowed information in the body of your text as footnotes or numbered end notes, or use APA style of referencing.
Proofread your submission carefully for grammar, spelling, and word-usage errors.
Rubrics for the other two courses are included in their respective written communications assignments.

ORDER NOW FOR AN EXCELLENT PAPER FROM HEALTH CARE PAPER GURUS: Assignment: Primary Outcomes of HR Management

 

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.

ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CLASS

Discussion Questions (DQ)

Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.
Weekly Participation

Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.
APA Format and Writing Quality

Assignment: Primary Outcomes of HR Management

Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.
Use of Direct Quotes

I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.
As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.
It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.
LopesWrite Policy

For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.
Late Policy

Assignment: Primary Outcomes of HR Management

The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.
If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.
I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.
As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.
Communication

Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:
Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.
Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
