Case Study 1

The Case of Arlene Amarosi, the Woman Who Dreams of Stress

Arlene Amarosi, a working mother, has been under a lot of stress this year. She has been having difficulty getting to sleep, and often lies in bed starting at the ceiling while worrying about her problems. As a result, she’s often tired throughout her workday and relies on coffee and caffeinated energy drinks to keep her going. Lately Arlene’s sleep has been disturbed even more often than usual. Several times over the past week she has been awakened by disturbing dreams. In these dreams she is always at work, struggling to keep up with an impossible workload. She is struggling with the new software that her company recently trained her to use, but no matter how fast she goes, she can’t keep up with the workflow. The dream ends when Arlene wakes up in a panic. It often takes Arlene hours to get back to sleep, and she has been feeling even more tired than usual during work.

Questions

1. Arlene is worried that her recent dream experiences indicate that something is wrong with her. If you were Arlene’s friend and wanted to reassure her, how would you help her to understand the normal experience of sleep and dreams?

2. Which theory of dreaming seems to best explain Arlene’s disturbing dreams, and why?
3. How might meditation help Arlene?

4 If you were Arlene´s health care provider, how would you advise her to overcome her insomnia?
5. What are some effects on Arlene of her high caffeine intake

Case Study 2

John Buckingham, The New Guy On The Job

When John Buckingham moved across the country to take a new job, he didn’t expect to run into much difficulty. He would be doing the same kind of work he was used to doing, just for a new company. But when he arrived on his first day, he realized there was more for him to adjust to than he had realized.

Clearly, John had moved to a region where the culture was much more laid back and casual than he was used to. He showed up for his first day in his usual business suit only to find that almost all the other employees wore jeans, Western shirts, and cowboy boots. Many of them merely stared awkwardly when they first saw John, and then hurriedly tried to look busy while avoiding eye contact.

John got the message. On his second day at work John also wore jeans and a casual shirt, although he didn’t yet own a pair own cowboy boots. He found that people seemed more relaxed around him, but that they continued to treat him warily. It would be several weeks—after he’d gone out and bought boots and started wearing them to work—before certain people warmed up to John enough to even talk to him.

Questions

  1. What does the behavior of John’s co-workers toward John suggest about their attributions for his initial manner of dress?
  2. Describe the kinds of biases that might have affected John’s co-workers as they formed impressions of him on his first day. Could they have been using a faulty schema to understand him? Is there evidence of the halo effect?
  3. Explain why John changed his manner of dress so soon after starting his new job? What processes were likely involved in his decision to do so?
  4. John’s co-workers seemed very hesitant to “warm up” to John. How would you explain to John their initial reluctance to like him very much?
  5. If you were the human resources director for this company, what strategies would you employ to prevent experiences like John’s? How would you justify the implementation of these strategies to the company president?

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.
