List the titles of the first five HR policies you would recommend to the owner and the main concepts that would be covered by each policy.
This is an individual take home exam. You are to complete it on your own with no outside help. Please honor this requirement. You may use your textbook and notes to complete the exam. Each item is worth 20 points, making the full exam worth 100 points. Your response must be attached as a Word document to the Final Exam Assignment in CANVAS and submitted by the deadline listed in the course schedule. Clear presentation, organization of ideas, grammar, and spelling will impact your grade. Respond as you would in a professional situation to your supervisor (except please double space for easier grading).
Your responses should be well-organized, concise and thorough. A shotgun listing of items directly from the textbook without applying those concepts to the situation presented will not earn a high grade. For most of the questions there is more than one correct answer, although some answers are certainly better than others. Also for most of the questions, concepts apply from various parts of the course. In most cases you will earn a better score if you avoid the temptation to focus on only one chapter in writing your answer.
You are the Cancer Program Director for a large hospital. The Vice President you report to has just informed you that the Board of Directors has approved the development of a radiation treatment department. The feasibility study listed the employees that will be needed by job title and an estimated total payroll. It did not include further details about staffing. The types of positions include entry level service and support staff, licensed technical and nursing staff, and a supervisor. You have four months, while the facility is remodeled and equipment installed, to hire the staff so they can begin training and open the center five months from now. Your first step will be to consult with the Human Resources staff.
Show the work plan that you would develop for this assignment. The work plan should be in chronological order and should show for each action step: a brief description of activities, start and end dates, parties involved, and responsible party. For example: “recruit nursing candidates by June 30” would not be adequate; a good answer would indicate where, how, and by whom. Hint: there are several steps that come before this one!
Your hospital implemented a new pay-for-performance system about 10 months ago. A preliminary review of the results shows the following. Managers (who earn bonuses based on budget savings) have held back in equipment maintenance and employee training on new techniques in order to save money. Employees perceive little connection between work and pay and feel the system is unfair. Some former high performers have become problem employees. Some employees have received significant increases and others have seen their pay decrease. Many of those with pay decreases are older and more experienced, but are not as adept with newer technology as some of the younger employees. Many of the older employees complain that, because of their experience, they are given more difficult patients.
