Describe the importance of the new-hire or on-boarding experience

Unit 1 DB: Human Resource Department

The functions of Human Resource Management have changed
considerably over the last 20 years. What
do you see as the top priorities of the HRM department? Please be specific and
include some academic information from the textbook (if you haven’t received
your textbook yet you can use the internet) Also, what have your experiences
been with your company’s HRM department?
Have they been responsive and effective and are they a visible and
helpful presence in your company? Please cite your source(s).

Unit 2 DB: Employment Laws

Select one of the following employment laws. (Please make
sure you don’t duplicate one of the laws you are doing for your PowerPoint
presentation) to discuss – first summarize it (history and major components)
and second explain why you personally feel it is important. I don’t want to see general comments. This is a very important week in
understanding the employment laws. Please communicate throughout the week with
your classmates on their selections.
Make this a robust Discussion Board – more than three postings to your
classmates – the more the better.

Unit 3 DB: Four Generational Workplace

The 21st Century U.S. Workforce is changing. Once of the major changes is that for the
first time in history there are four (4) generations working side-by-side. The four (4) generations are:

The Traditionist/Mature/Veterans (born before 1946)

The Baby Boomers (born between 1946 through 1964 +/-)

Generation X (born 1964 through 1979 +/-) and

Generation Y/Millennium (born 1980 to 2000 +/-)

Please provide some background on this change and how it has
affected you or someone you know in the workplace. Provide concise academic information along
with your observations and if possible examples from your workplace. If you find any interesting articles from an
accredited source please share it with your classmates

Unit 4 DB: New Hire/Onboarding Experience

New employment encourages the heart and motivates the spirit
to learn and grow…to be part of something bigger and achieve one’s goals and
purpose. This is a significant point in
each of our lives and the hopes and dreams we have of that new job, for our
family and future and our willingess to learn and grow.

Discussion Question:
Describe the importance of the new-hire or on-boarding experience
(academic data required) and how your organization strives to maximize that
newcomer spirit. How were you treated on
your first day? Did this first impression
make an impact on you? Were you made to
feel welcome and receive adequate training?
Use material from your textbook in addition to your personal
observations

Unit 5 DB: Labor Unions

Let’s discuss Labor Unions.
Give a brief summary on the reasons why they were formed in the early
1900s. The National Labor Relations Act
(Wagner Act) is one of the early labor laws that allowed unions to form. What were the reasons that the workers united
together to get these laws passed?

After you do your research, do you feel unions are still
relevant in today’s workplace?

Be specific in your responses – using data from both the
textbook and recent news outlets,such as the Wall Street Journal, Businessweek,
New York Times, etc. Make sure that your
sources have authors – and please don’t use any sources that are for or against
unions. Make sure the reporting is
objective

Unit 6 DB: Intrinsic or Extrinsic Motivation?

For this week’s Discussion Board question let’s discuss how
the compensation system influences employees’ motivation, productivity and
satisfaction. How important is the compensation
system in an employees’ productivity?
Are there other factors that employers can do to motivate
employees? What are your feelings on
this subject – intrinsic or extrinsic motivation and if so what is an example?

For the academic portion of your response, please use data
from the textbook or from an accredited business journal, magazine, newspaper,
etc. You may also want to share an
article you find with your classmates.
For example, here is an article from The Wall Street Journal on
“Ways To Be Happy and Productive At Work” dated November 25, 2012 by
Jessica Pryce-Jones.

Most companies offer paid vacations after a minimum period of service. The theory is that after having an opportunity to rest and refresh themselves, workers will be more effective. Please do a comparison of the typical vacation period in the U.S. (as shown below) and the vacation period for ONEother country such as Australia, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain or a country of your choice. After doing the comparison let us know your feelings on the differences.

The typical vacation in the U.S. private sector is:

  1. One week for an employee with less than one year’s service
  2. Two weeks for 1 to 10 years of service
  3. Three weeks for 10 to 20 years
  4. Four weeks for over 20-year employees

Please use the internet to research this question and also provide your feelings on the differences between the two countries. Please remember we are talking about the private sector. If you find any interesting articles on the subject please share them.

 

  1. What would you tell these people to convince them of the potential safety and health hazards in these work sites? In addition to academic data please relate any personal observations. OR
  2. Provide a concise definition of OSHA and why it was needed in the workplace? Have you ever experienced an unsafe work environment? Was the situation fixed?
