MGT330 Unit 3 DB 4 paragraphs
Your supervisor has asked you to research ideas on career development activities for its employees that your company can implement. Post your ideas for the top three career development activities that you think your organization and other organizations should provide for their employees. Why are these important? Consider your answers as well as other students' answers. Based on this discussion did you change your ranking? Why or why not?
Submit your original list with a paragraph argument for their inclusion. The final paragraph should detail why you either did or did not change your rankings.
For step #1 you will discuss the top three career development activities that you think your organization and other organizations should provide for their employees. Along with this list, include at minimum a one-paragraph discussion on why these are important (what support can you provide for why these will be effective)? I will look for you to utilize and cite the textbook and/or other research and apply specific concepts to this question.
Step #2 engage in dialogue with others on the DB with 2 or more well developed replies. I posted a DB thread with examples of the types of replies that will qualify. I encourage you to make your posts prior to Sunday so that others have the opportunity to interact with you. That is not required, just highly encouraged so that you can gain the full benefit of the discussion board
Step #3 review the various DB posts and develop a follow-up post which is considered the final step. In that final post you should discuss why you did or did not change your own listing of ideas. For example, do you see other ideas that you feel may be more effective than your original list?

//Before writing to this paper, one should be aware about what performance appraisal is and its importance for evaluating the employees.

Performance Appraisal

Employees are among the most important resources of the organizations. Performance appraisal is a process of collecting and analyzing the current or past performance of an employee with the help of the performance measures. Performance appraisal focuses on measuring & improving the actual performance and future potential of the employees. It helps in analyzing the achievements of the employees and their contribution for the achievement of organizational goals.

The process of performance appraisal includes setting work standards, analyzing the employees' performance according to those standards and giving feedback for motivating the employees to remove the deficiency to stand appropriate according to the desired performance. There are some reasons for appraising the performance of an employee as it is very helpful for the management of the company to decide on increment, promotion, etc. It provides the knowledge about the employee's work related behavior, strengths, weaknesses and career plans.

I do agree with the opinion of Jennifer about the need to evaluate the workers in a formal manner because formal performance appraisal is an unavoidable part of the organizations (Creating Effective Performance Appraisals, 1999). There are two primary reasons why the formal performance appraisal systems are needed. First, formal performance appraisal system is required for rationalizing the decisions related with employees that are promotion, demotion, increment, termination, transfer, etc. The second reason is that the formal appraisal system assists the organization to maintain the competitive advantage. Using the formal appraisal system, a company can keep the record of the employee's performance and therefore, the company should go with Jennifer's opinion.

Compensation

MGT330 Unit 4 Compensation 4-6 pages
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 Library, 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. The cover letter should be addressed to your supervisor and should explain and justify the compensation package, incentive plan, and benefits plan. 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.
There are 4 components required for successful completion of this IP: (1) a compensation package you suggest for James (including the specific pay rate that will be offered) (2) an incentive plan you feel will be effective for persuading James to take the position (specific incentive plans this offer will include) and (3) a benefits plan (specific benefits this offer will include)
Using the Internet and Library (notice that external research is required) locate all necessary information for constructing these three packages. Be sure to cite your sources within the paper (package) so that I am able to see how you obtained your data, and how that information was used to support what you plan to offer. Again, the in-text citing within the paper (not just the cover letter) is required. Although that would not normally be included in an offer, for the purpose of this assignment it is important to include.

Along with these packages/plans you will include a one page cover letter that outlines what you propose to offer. The cover letter should be addressed to your supervisor and should explain and justify the compensation package, incentive plan, and benefits plan. Your detailed plans will then follow that cover page. Be sure you do more than simply "list" the incentives and benefits in those plans. You are expected to include the details necessary to explain what you plan to offer James.
*************************************************************************************MGT330 Unit 4 DB

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.

This assignment is completed in three parts.
Step #1 Make an initial post discussing your thoughts on the following statement: "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"
As a 2nd step you will engage in dialogue with others on the DB with 2 or more well developed replies.
As a 3rd step you will make your follow up one-paragraph post indicating which side of the issue was most persuasive to you and why.

All 3 steps are required for successful completion of this assignment. Your research must be applied and cited in either the initial or final post.
