Recommendation to answer

We recommend that a survey program is implemented to get the guests’ point  of view on the staff who performed well or under performed during their  stay. These include waiters, waitresses, lifeguards, securities, gardeners, housekeepers, bellhops, to name a  few. We propose having an electronic and or paper-based system where  guests can rate the hotel and its staff upon checking out. The front  desk clerk will bring this to the guest’s attention and direct said guest to either google to do rating or fill out physical  forms. HR would file these reviews/ feedback to help eliminate  challenges whenever there are disagreements/discrepancies regarding an  employee’s performance.

One  advantage of this proposal is that the hotel will be better able to  reward employees who went above and beyond to provide excellent customer  service to guests (performance standards). It also raises the image and service standards of the hotel in the eyes  of the public.

Analyze and assess the communication dynamics of an organization through the completion of a communication audit

SHRM Competency:

Consultation – The ability to provide guidance to organizational stakeholders.

 

PROBLEM

What are the communication challenges organizations face today? Once they are identified, how does an organization overcome these challenges and improve their communication flow? In this three-part assignment, you will first conduct a communication audit to assess organizational communication within an organization of your choice. A communication audit is a method of research that reveals how your stakeholders view your organization’s communication methods and effectiveness. We will provide you with a survey (below) that you will use to measure this perception, and you will administer it in your organization.

You will then analyze and synthesize the results of the data obtained from your audit efforts and select one critical communication challenge in your organization, conduct research and develop suggestions for addressing that specific communication challenge. Last, you will present the result of your audit, your research, and suggestions for improvement in a presentation.

Your goals:

  • Administer the communication audit in your organization. This should be an organization you work for or have access to such as a school or church organization.
  • Analyze and synthesize the results of the data from the communication audit.
  • Based on the communication audit identify one critical communication challenge that needs to be addressed within your organization.
  • Create and deliver a presentation that provides the results of your audit with suggestions for improvement based on the data obtained from the audit and the literature on organizational communication.

Directions:

Assume you are the Director of Human Resources at your chosen organization. You are tasked with conducting a communication audit and presenting the results to leadership. Your goal in conducting the communication audit is to identify one main communication challenge within an organization that needs to be addressed.

You will complete the following tasks:

  1. Conduct a communication audit survey. In order to obtain valid results, you want to survey between 8 to 10 people. You may print out the survey and distribute it in person for completion, or you may administer it online, for example, using Survey Monkey or Google Forms. The survey includes questions that tap into five different areas of organizational communication: (1) Receiving information from others, (2) Sending information to others, (3) Sources of information, (4) Timeliness of information, and (5) Channels of communication. Within these five areas of organizational communication, identify one major area of concern to address based on the responses from the survey.
  2. You will then analyze and synthesize the results of the data obtained from your audit effort and create your Audit Report using the format below.
  3. Based on the communication audit identify one critical communication challenge that needs to be addressed within your organization. Research the scholarly literature for recommendations about how the organization can address this issue.
  4. Create and deliver a presentation that provides the results of your audit with suggestions for improvement based on the data obtained from the audit and the literature on organizational communication.

FORMAT

Develop a professionally-written narrative in which you describe the data using appropriate tables, charts, and graphs. Include a detailed analysis followed by a summary of your findings, using the example in the “Collecting and Analyzing Data” file in the content area. Identify the top communication challenge from your survey, and present your recommendations to strengthen this communication challenge, based on the scholarly literature. In the appendix, present the survey questions and the number of responses for each question.

Your report should be professional and creative. You must have a minimum of 3 reliable sources in your citations. Use APA format for the  in-text citations you use to support your arguments. Don’t forget to check your spelling! As a friendly reminder, all words must be yours and your own typing. You may not copy text directly from a source.

Discuss Inherent Gender Inequality

examine the issue of inherent gender inequality; how it came about; how it is perpetuated and the benefits that come when there is gender equality in the workplace and in society. You’ll be asked to research how business leaders can better promote gender equality in the workplace.

View the Michael Kimmel video on “Why Gender Equality is Good…”

Based on the ideas in the video and your outside sources, write a 3 page paper, addressing the following three questions:

1. What are your perceptions of the existence of gender inequality in the world around us? How does it show itself and have we just taken it as a fact of life…or are we becoming more aware of the implications it produces?

2. What are some good qualities that make women (more so than men) well suited to assume high-level leadership roles?

3. What is one solution you believe would work to break through the “glass ceiling” and why? Is this something organizations should actively pursue? Why?

Submission Requirements: 

· APA format is required, which includes:

o Title page

o 12pt. font in Times New Roman and double-spaced

o Reference page, with in-text citations

· Entire paper length should be four pages or more; the answer to each question should be complete and thorough.

Discuss International Human Resource Management

Write a report (2,000 words) aimed at Human Resources (HR) professionals, outlining how organisations can adapt the range and type of international assignments to meet their strategic plans. You will be expected to identify:

– the type of organisation (i.e. industry, size, type of operations) you are preparing this report for,

– the type and purpose of the internationalisation strategy that this organisation might need to adopt in order to meet its strategic plan,

– the type of international assignment that best fits its internationalisation strategy.

You will also be expected to produce a detailed training and support programme aimed at the employees/managers going on the type of international assignment you are recommending.

Your report should include 3 sections:

Introduction (300 words): Your introduction should specify the aim and objectives of the report. It should also set the context within key IHRM issues (e.g. internationalisation, global talent, etc.) and specify the organisation and its international/global strategy (including the home and host countries involved). In this section, you can discuss, in general, the contextual factors that have influenced organisations to work internationally (e.g. ensuring a pipeline of global talent) and the challenges they face. You can then narrow this discussion down to the organisation in question and its own strategic drivers.

International assignment (600 words): In this section, you should present an overview of the different types of international assignments. You should then introduce and justify the type of international assignment that best supports the organisation’s (international/global) strategy. Explain its characteristics and critically discuss its strengths and weaknesses. Remember to consider strengths and weaknesses from the organisational and individual perspective. You should also discuss the challenges for HR professionals in managing the particular type of international assignment.

Training and support programme (1000 words):  Your training and support programme should help HR professionals prepare employees going on the type of international assignment discussed in the previous section.

The first part of the training and support programme should present an analysis of the cultural differences between the home and host countries. You will need to do some background research to find out more about the home and host countries in question. For example, what is the national culture there? What is it like to work and live there? Gathering this information is crucial as it will then inform the objectives and learning content of the training and support programme. In this section, you should also present and justify the profile of the employees/managers involved in the international assignment.

The second part should specify the programme’s objectives, training and supporting activities, and timeframe. The expectation is that you will have obtained a good amount of knowledge and understanding from the lectures, seminars and wider academic and practitioner-oriented reading about the expatriation process – and other alternative forms of international working – and some of the issues that international assignees face, before, during and after their engagement on an international assignment (e.g. as cultural awareness and adaptation, early termination, host county expectations and national culture, career planning and development, trailing spouses, work & life balance, and much more). Your programme should be based on research in these areas and demonstrate the importance of preparing people for international assignments. Your programme should also be unique to a specific type of international assignment, and consider its characteristics, strengths and weaknesses in the design. Your training and support programme should show your sensitivity to identifying and meeting the needs of assignees and organisations, and it should show your understanding of different training methods to ensure that your training objectives are met.

The content of your training and support programme should demonstrate how you will address the following points.

· Pre-departure: Type of information, activities and support that are considered crucial for employees in their preparation for an international assignment

· Post-arrival: Type of information, activities and support that are considered crucial to support employees during the international assignment.

· Repatriation: Type of information, activities and support that are considered crucial to prepare individuals returning from the international assignment.

Your training and support programme should be comprehensive, and consider all relevant aspects of an international assignment, including the cultural context, career development, personal development and family aspects at all stages of the international assignment cycle.
