What does nice mean to you? Do you think nice is a good trait for leaders or the kiss of death?

A Nice Manager Case Study

Many human resource professionals choose human resources because they want to help others. Sometimes, their helpfulness can lead to avoiding necessary discussions. This case study gives a common scenario and allows you to consider how you will engage in this scenario from a human resource perspective.

Use The Leadership Experience to read “A Nice Manager” under Leadership Development: Cases for Analysis at the end of Chapter 4, and respond to the following:

  • What does nice mean to you? Do you think nice is a good trait for leaders or the kiss of death? Why?
  • If Harry is passed over for a promotion, what role would you see the human resource professional has in providing feedback versus his direct manager?

Explore the challenges and opportunities that a performance appraisal adds to the overall job analysis and job design process.

Prior to beginning work on this assignment, review this week’s readings and Weekly Lecture.

You are the new HR leader for a small manufacturing firm located in the Midwest. During your interview, the owner of the company expressed an urgent need for a complete staffing review due to the fact that a substantial amount of technical change had occurred at the plant over the past decade without regard to the job description or the requirements of the position.

Establishing the proper staffing process is important to reaching a successful outcome. You must have a firm understanding of how you will accomplish the task of reviewing the actions and behaviors of each role and/or position within the organization. The owner of the manufacturing firm has asked for a structured three-section report explaining how the project will be accomplished and where the process will begin. With the concerns of the owner in mind, you will develop a detailed report, defining the process, the reasoning for conducting the job analysis, the resulting job design, and the performance evaluation process for each position and/or role within the organization.

Your project must be designed in such a way that is understandable to both administrators and subordinates and comprehensive in the results.

Section 1 – Job Analysis (Three to four pages and two scholarly resources in addition to the text.) Use keywords and HRM language that are connected to each of the header areas. Include resources that support your findings.

  • Part 1 – Explain your reasoning for the purpose of the job analysis and the relationship to individual needs and corporate strategy. Evaluate why it is important to perform a job analysis for the positions within the organization.
  • Part 2 – Describe an analysis tool that would be most appropriate for this particular project. Explain the reasoning for your selection and your desired outcomes. Indicate the type of information that will be delivered via the analysis tool.
  • Part 3 – Identify specific external resources available to HR, and explain how they will be used to provide occupational data and descriptors.
  • Part 4 – Summarize the assumed data to be defined during analysis. Explain why the content is important to job design and performance evaluation.

Section 2 – Job Design (Three to four pages and two scholarly resources in addition to the text)

  • Part 1 – Create a job description for the organization based on the proposed data delivered in Section 1. Specifically identify each section of the job description, and defend the importance of each to the selection process. This should be a description of the template, not a job description for a specific job.
  • Part 2 – Explain how the required employment and labor laws (BFOQ, ADA, EEO, and OSHA) are incorporated into the job description. Evaluate how the organization will account for the deployment of these laws.
  • Part 3 – Based on your research, explain why the chosen design is appropriate for the organization.

Section 3 – Performance Appraisal (Three to four pages and two scholarly resources in addition to the text)

  • Part 1 – Explain the purpose and intended outcomes of a performance appraisal. Evaluate the proposed job description (Section 2), and describe how the elements of the job description will be measured.
  • Part 2 – Develop a performance appraisal using the measureable actions defined within the job description.
  • Part 3 – Explore the challenges and opportunities that a performance appraisal adds to the overall job analysis and job design process.

Summary

Provide an overall summary of the proposed structure for the staffing review as requested by the owner of the organization. Briefly describe each section of the plan, and defend why your choices will provide the information needed for a successful outcome.

Assignment Content

  1.     Use the job description from the individual assignment in Week 2 to complete this assignment.

    Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper in which you cover the following:

    • Outline how you would design an employee performance appraisal system for your organization. It must be a comprehensive system, not simply an annual written evaluation.
    • Using the job description, discuss how the work described would be evaluated using your proposed performance appraisal system. Are you looking for behaviors? Results? Can the work described be quantified? How can “intangibles” such as “provide good customer service” be measured?
    • Justify your responses with support from your textbook, peer-reviewed research, and other sources.

      Format your assignment according to APA guidelines.

Describe three protected classes and the laws that exist to protect them.

Describe three protected classes and the laws that exist to protect them.

There are various federal and state employment and labor laws protecting both employees and employers. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is the federal agency responsible for interpreting, investigating, and enforcing federal employment laws against workplace discrimination. In Week 2, you considered the legal components in a job description. In Week 4, you analyzed forms of discrimination when conducting a performance appraisal. For this discussion, you will look at protected classes identified by the EEOC. Protected classes are groups of people with common characteristics that are legally protected from employment discrimination.

In your initial post,

  • Describe three protected classes and the laws that exist to protect them.
  • Explain how the EEOC investigates complaints of discrimination against a protected individual.
  • Discuss how employers can prevent and respond to allegations of employment discrimination.

Your initial post should be a minimum of 300 words and cite at least one scholarly source to support your response.

Identify and assess at least one personal and professional challenge.

HS410-5: Integrate personal and professional ethics to achieve organizational goals.

GEL-7.02: Apply ethical reasoning to ethical issues within the field of study.

You are the finance manager in a long-term care facility that is struggling to remain solvent. The facility’s administrator has hired a consultant to work with you to increase Medicaid reimbursement. The consultant recommends that you be more “liberal” in coding the severity of residents’ needs to justify greater reimbursement. The consultant tells you, “everybody does it” and, “it’s an undetectable way to boost revenue.”

You believe this approach is somewhere between inappropriate and illegal. You know the consultant is being paid on a commission and is an old college buddy of the facility administrator. You also recognize that your facility could soon go out of business and leave you without a job.

In a two-page paper, respond to the following:

What are your ethical challenges? Identify and assess at least one personal and professional challenge. What are your options/chosen course of action? Identify and assess at least one of the personal and professional challenges.

What are some of the considerations that would be important when making decisions about eRecruiting and eSelection programs and systems.

The Role of Technology in eRecruitment and eSelection

For this assignment, you should focus on the reading material for week 2.

TOPIC: As you are aware, two of the human resources areas affected the most by technology is eRecruitment and eSelection. In this paper, you will address the following:

  1. Describe the factors and key elements found in an eRecruitment/eSelection program.
  2. What are the positives and negatives of eRecruitment and eSelection, making sure you cite some examples.
  3. What is important to understand about the eRecruitment and eSelection process for both the human resources manager and the hiring supervisor.
  4. What are some of the considerations that would be important when making decisions about eRecruiting and eSelection programs and systems.
  5. Identify, discuss, and compare three (3) tools, to include specific providers.

The following will help guide you through the mechanics of the paper:

  • Utilize the APA Style for preparing your paper. An APA sample paper is attached which will also serve as a mini-guide.
  • The “body” of the paper will be no less than 3 pages and no more than 5 pages in length.
  • Your title page, abstract, references, and any attachments are not included in the page count.
  • Your introduction will provide an opportunity to capture the reader’s attention with a “hook.” It also indicates what the paper will be about and how you will approach the topic.
  • Your conclusion will summarize the main idea, ties the main points together neatly for the reader, and ends with a sense of finality. Avoid introducing new ideas in the conclusion.
  • I encourage you use, at a minimum, the word processing software’s grammar and spell check, making the necessary corrections before submitting as punctuation, essay format (thesis, supporting paragraphs with transition and topic sentences, and summary) grammar, and documentation count toward your grade.

How would you suggest the Carters get all employees to behave more safely at work?

The New Safety Program

At first glance, a dot-com company is one of the last places you’d expect to find potential safety and health hazards—or so the owners of LearnInMotion.com thought. There’s no danger of moving machinery, no high-pressure lines, no cutting or heavy lifting, and certainly no forklift trucks. However, there are safety and health problems.

A word document containing your responses to the four (3) questions occurring at the end of the case study.

  1. How should the firm go about identifying hazardous conditions that should be rectified? Use checklists such as those in Figures 16-6 and 16-8 to list at least 10 possible dry cleaning store hazardous conditions.
  2. Would it be advisable for the firm to set up a procedure for screening out accident-prone individuals? How should they do so?
  3. How would you suggest the Carters get all employees to behave more safely at work? Also, how would you advise them to get those who should be wearing goggles to do so?
