    Individual Project

    James Richards has an electrical engineering degree from a United States' accredited university. Upon graduation he was offered, and he accepted, an entry-level engineering position at a firm in San Antonio, Texas. He has been gainfully employed with this firm for the last five years. Recently he interviewed with your firm which is located in Chicago, Illinois. You, working for the human resources department, want to employ James. Working in conjunction with your supervisor you are drafting three items; (1) a compensation package, (2) an incentive plan, and (3) a benefits plan in order to successfully employ James Richards with your organization.

    Using the internet and cybrary, locate all necessary information for constructing these three packages. This will include designing plans that are specific to James and this situation, including the pay rate that will be offered, and the specific benefit and incentive plans this offer will include. Along with these packages you will include a one page cover letter that outlines what you propose to offer, and explains why your plans are appropriate for the position you are offering James. Your detailed plans will then follow that cover page.

    This is a research assignment so be sure to include and cite your research in the paper.

    Discussion Board
    Students should conduct a debate on the discussion board to address the topic of the assignment. This is done via an initial posting with your thoughts, and then responses to other students on their posts.

    Most job candidates are concerned with baseline pay. Incentives and benefits do very little to persuade a candidate to accept an organization's employment offer if baseline compensation is slightly below the candidate's expectations.

    Following the discussion, post a follow up paragraph DB response indicating which side of the issue was most persuasive to you and why.
