How Much is Human Resource Management Really Changing? : A 5 page paper discussing whether HR is really changing or only appears to be. Not too many years ago, Human Resources (HR) was the poor relation of the corporate world—it was believed that the existence of individual HR departments was necessary, if only for the record keeping function they performed. As business is increasingly competitive, however, HR is taking on a much more active role in the organization’s strategy planning, often while outsourcing much of the administrative work for which they previously were responsible.

Management Of The Interview And Hiring Function : A 6 page paper discussing the increasing necessity for absolute honesty in the hiring process as a safeguard against later truth-in-hiring lawsuits. There are lists of guidelines and specific questions allowable for interviewers to ask available from several management and human resources professional organizations, and it is unconscionable in today’s business climate that any organization of size operates outside those guidelines in its efforts to attract the best people possible. But it is also more common for candidates to also interview the company in order for them to be assured they are making the best choices for themselves and for their families, and those interviewers now must take as much care in their responses as interviewees have had to maintain for generations.

The woman stands to lose all that she has worked to attain throughout her working life, and the company potentially faces a discrimination suit as well as a failed product launch.

Performance-based training assessment is only one more route to aiding organizations to operate as effectively as possible.

Employee Effects of Downsizing & Mergers : An 8 page paper. Downsizing as a management tool seems to have waned at last, though there are routine reports of job cuts by many companies, several of which may only be seeking the traditional stock price boost that usually follows a downsizing announcement.

Mergers still continue, but at a reduced rate than in most years of the 1990s. Bibliography lists 16 sources. Downmerg.wps

Downsizing’s Effects on the Real Estate Market : 9 pages in length. Certainly the real estate industry, both residential and commercial segments, were greatly affected by the downsizing waves on either side of the year of 1990, as were many others. With the sustained growth of the national economy, however, many of those depreciated properties have now regained and even surpassed their former values. The private owners and real estate developers suffered, but we all really did, too. We’re growing now, and we even have the added benefit of lessons learned from the effects of downsizing. Bibliography lists 7 sources. Downsize.doc

Downsizing’s Effects on its Affected Households : An 8 page paper. Even though two-income families can make the downsizing transition much easier than those without a significant second income, there are still substantial issues they will have to overcome. Some end up working in distant cities and conducting long-distance marriages; many more finally take jobs at an income far below their former one. Homes have been lost, retirement funds have been decimated to meet living expenses, and some have even taken to living on credit card cash advances for their immediate needs when they saw no alternative. Downsizing and layoffs all affect specific households, but not all those effects are "bad" ones. Bibliography lists 7 sources. Tight.wps

Bibliography lists 19 sources. Downsizc.wps

Downsizing & The Business Environment : A 15 page paper discussing the way downsizing was. Much has come of the corporate downsizing experience, on both sides. Business is increasingly competitive, and most businesses have exhausted every avenue of "quick fix" for reducing costs and preserving profits. One "new" approach is that businesses have realized that it costs far more to replace employees than to keep them, and the most forward-looking are those taking very good care of their employees, and building and preserving morale. Such was not the case at the height of downsizing, however. This paper presents two examples each of companies that handled their downsizing well and those that did not. Bibliography lists 30 sources. Dwnsize.wps

Article Review / "Damaged, Downsized Souls -- How to Revitalize the Workplace" : A 6 page review of an article published in the May, 1996, issue of HR Magazine.

Grossman) also provides a listing of possible approaches to downsizing. No additional sources cited Abstract.wps

Finding The Right People For The Job : A 7 page paper addressing the increasing problem for employers of finding experienced, qualified people to fill both new and existing ositions. As the US economy continues its long prosperous upswing, it is increasingly difficult for employers to remain fully staffed, particularly at the blue collar and retail level. The paper gives the example of how the Chubb Group instituted policy changes to encourage employees to remain with the company. Competitive pressures are only building and businesses have to do all they can to contain costs and increase productivity in order to remain competitive. Constantly replacing or searching for qualified employees is a costly proposition. Bibliography lists 7 sources. RightOne.wps

Considerations for Healthcare Professionals’ Continuing Education :
A 5 page paper discussing lesson plan development for a continuing education class for healthcare professionals. The course will be led by physicians and most participants will be nurses and physician assistants, though some MDs also may participate. This section of the ongoing plan development assesses possible methods to use in presenting educational material to active professionals in the healthcare field. The topic is caring for the menopausal patient, particularly in patient education. The paper discusses several possible formats for the session and concludes that a telecast lecture/question format likely would be the most convenient for the participants while also be most cost efficient for the seminar providers. The standard group setting also will be used in order to gain the most benefit of group dynamics. Bibliography lists 2 sources. Consplan.wps

Continuing Educational Program : A 5 page paper discussing the objectives of a seminar for practicing healthcare professionals regarding patient education in the area of menopause. The aging population is the fastest-growing segment of the general population; demographic studies indicate that the over-65 segment of the population will be the largest by the turn of the century and for several years beyond. This stage of the female patient’s life commonly has been one in which patients seek increased levels of information, and this seminar is designed to enable the healthcare provider to more fully answer those questions with information based on current research and practice. Bibliography lists 2 sources. Conedpr.wps

Encouraging Internal Employee Motivation : A 5 page paper discussing ways in which managers and businesses can provide the climate and circumstances through which employees can motivate themselves to do the best job they can for their company. Money certainly is an issue, but when pay meets minimum acceptable levels motivation depends on the employee’s conviction that his company views him as a valuable contributor to the overall health of the business. Federal Express is a master of such motivation and is used as an example throughout the paper. Bibliography lists 5 sources. Empmotiv.wps

Motivation In The Workplace : A 5 page essay discussing different theories of motivation including: Needs Satisfaction Hierarchy, Theory X and Y, and Expectancy Theory. The theories are applied to the workplace, in general, and a hypothetical beauty supply company, in particular. Bibliography lists 4 sources. Motivwk.wps

Motivation vs. Control In The Business World : 5 pages in length. The business world requires a considerable amount of direction within the supervisor/subordinate situation, however, it is clear that motivational techniques bring about significantly better productivity than does controlling behavior. Consistent with tutelage of any kind, encouragement has proven the most effective method of evoking positive results over the inherently negative influence of coercion. The writer discusses why motivation is far superior over control in the business world. Bibliography lists 4 sources. MotVsCon.wps

Human Resources at Federal Express: This 4 page paper with annotated bibliography examines the role of human resource management at Federal Express in terms of the three strategies for the strategic business partner concept as delineated by Michelle Martinez and elaborated by Dave Ulrich.

Issues Concerning The Hiring Of Temporary Workers ("Temps") : A 6 page paper describing issues concerning temporary workers in today's business world. A double-edge sword is presented by the fact that companies emphasize quality and yet they hire temps to save costs-- temps that are not as likely to work to their fullest potential or with the company's own interests in mind. Some of the pros and cons of temp work are cited : the writer feels that they are cost-effective, highly-available, and little or training is required by the company itself. But on the other hand, temps are very often exploited, underpaid, overworked, and generally treated quite poorly. Bibliography lists 9 sources. Temps.wps

Defining the Reasons Behind Organizational Turnover : A 25 page research paper seeking the reasons for and causes of organizational turnover. The problem of organizational turnover, or employee retention, is an expensive one for American businesses. Though there has been much discussion over the years as to just what the real problem is, what it might be, and what business practitioners and observers think it is, there has been little empirical research into its origins. Of the research that has been performed, too much of it concludes with ideas along the lines of "employees least satisfied with their jobs are the ones who are most likely to leave them." The best information we have at the current time is a combination of reliable empirical research, insightful observation and common sense. Bibliography lists 20+ sources. Turnover.wps

Employee Turnover / Voluntary vs Involuntary : A 12 page research paper that looks at different aspects of employee turnover. The focus is the costs associated with each voluntary and involuntary turnover, i.e., whether an employee quits or is fired. Both tangible and intangible costs are associated with each event, however, summarily firing an employee can result in extensive monetary costs, some of which are not readily apparent. The different costs are discussed as well as steps an employer should take if they decide to terminate someone's' employment. Bibliography included. Turnover.wps

Organizational Turnover and Employee Retention : A 13 page paper discussing turnover in terms of causes and costs. Costs of retention may appear to be high, but the costs of turnover are greater—the primary difference is that the costs of retention are so much more easily quantifiable. High turnover rates carry other effects other than just costs of replacement, and it is those costs that are so difficult to define. Senior management may never make a connection between falling sales and increasing turnover as customers feel they are left to fend for themselves when confronted with new people who may well have not been sufficiently trained to do their new jobs; and it may not be possible to reliably judge how excessive turnover affects those employees remaining. Indeed, the costs of retention are lower. Bibliography lists 16 sources. Emretain.wps

Human Resources Management in the Flexible Firm : A 9 page research paper defining and exploring the "flexible firm," as well as the challenges for HR management within that firm. The paper focuses on the elements of total quality management (TQM). Bibliography lists 16 sources. Cntqmanl.wps

The author provides support for the idea that individual training programs, such as those practiced by Universities and the SF 49ers, lead to Total Quality Management for the company, creativity, and a positive work environment. Bibliography lists 6 references. Cntrain.wps

Employee Assistance Programs : An 8 page research paper giving an overview of this type of employee benefit program—what they cover, who they affect, how they are used and how HR professionals are attempting to increase employee awareness of the programs’ full benefits. EAPs serve to assist the employee in their quest to either solve current personal problems or simply get over temporary "humps" in their lives. Employers recognize that it is to their advantage to have their employees the most productive they can be, even if achieving the highest level of productivity involves contributing cash and encouraging the seeking of outside help. EAPs address the needs requiring the assistance of mental health professionals. Bibliography lists 12 sources. EAP.wps

Employee Assistance Programs / Overview Of Study : 5 pages in length. Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) are used to confront substance abuse and other employee problems in the workplace. It has not been established until now, however, which system works more efficiently: external or internal.

Employee Evaluations / Negative Elements In Effective Human Resource Management : A 37 page paper that provides an overview of the literature relating to the use of employee evaluations, and supports the theory that they are a weak link in effective human resource management. Bibliography lists 30 sources. Empleval.wps

Performance Review Controversies : A 10 page paper discussing some of the ways in which performance evaluations are changing. Most businesses report using the old standard methods of performance review, but the numbers of those taking different approaches are growing, as organizations come to understand that many of their standard performance appraisal practices are of no use either for the employee or for the company barring any kind of employment lawsuit. Those businesses that are required for legal protection reasons to go through the "pain" of the review may as well gain some value from the process and the time required to produce the evaluation. As businesses adapt to the changing competitive climate in which they operate, we are likely to see many more innovations and a gradual reduction in the number of companies reporting standard practice. Bibliography lists 10 sources. Perform.doc

Human Resource Management / Performance Appraisals : This 8 page paper discusses trends in performance appraisal. Particular attention is given to performance appraisals when teams are used in the workplace. This opperational mode requires a different approach than the more traditional ones that are in use.

Appraising The Performance Appraisal : A 5 page paper discussing the existence of appraisals in the workplace. The reasons for administering the appraisal are described briefly.

Computerized Monitoring of Employees : A 5 page paper discussing the unfairness of computerized monitoring software by employers who are seeking to monitor Internet usage and emails of employees. Bibliography lists 4 sources. Compmon.wps

Employee Privacy In The Workplace : A 5 page paper discussing the issue of employee privacy as it applies to electronic communication. Employers do have a desire to ensure that the time they are paying for to be spent in their service is indeed being spent that way. With the pervasiveness of electronic communication, that monitoring has grown in some areas to the point that it has been called an invasion of the employee’s privacy. Those claiming such an invasion of privacy, however, are forgetting that the employee is to be spending his time in the employer’s service. Though some employers may take their monitoring efforts too far, it must remain their right to be able to manage their businesses efficiently. Bibliography lists 2 sources. Privatem.doc

E-mail Privacy & Business Ethics / Perceptions of Privacy and The Development of Privacy Standards In the Workplace : An 8 page paper that provides an overview of the issues related to the use of e-mail in the workplace and the complexities of perceptions related to privacy and ethics.

Human Resources / Positive Moves : A 15 page research paper on how companies are working to build and maintain positive relationships with their employees and the greater role of Human Resources in maintaining those resources. Some of the most profitable companies are also known as some of the best places to work (i.e., Hewlett-Packard), while other very profitable companies are only endured by their employees in a downsizing, competitive business climate. Much of the difference can be traced to the overall climate and culture of the organization. Bibliography lists 7 sources. HumanR.wps

Bibliography lists seven sources. Human.wps

Studies & Perceptions of Recruiting and Job Placement : A 9 page paper discussing new approaches of businesses for identifying current and future needs, and then filling current positions with those future needs in mind. We have already been through downsizing and reengineering and for many businesses, fine-tuning their Human Resource function appears to be the last frontier of paring down waste and operating the company at its peak efficiency. Many of today’s most successful businesses are those that view their people as their greatest collective asset, rather than a necessary cost center and drain on their bottom line. Bibliography lists 9 sources. Jobrec.wps

Management’s Influence On Human Resources / Entrepreneurship and Creativity : A 7 page research paper on the effects that a business’ Human Resource policies can have on the spirit of creativity and entrepreneurship within the company. Two examples given are Southwest Airlines and Lotus Development Corporation. While both officially and practically put their employees first, Southwest also includes the concept of providing enhanced customer service by ensuring they have happy employees. Lotus, at least in times past, just wanted happy employees. The fortunes of the two companies reflect what superficially seems to be a minor divergence of attitude. That single point, though, has made a world of difference. Bibliography lists 5 sources. HR-Role.wps

Southwest Airlines : An 11 page research paper investigating Southwest Airlines Company, including a history of the company, philosophy of management, financial reports, employee-management relations, and forecasting the company's future. Particular attention is paid to the factors that make Southwest so successful. One table is presented. Bibliography lists 11 sources. Soutair.wps

Democracy in the Workplace / Examples Of Success : A 16 page research paper examining the qualities of three of the "best" places to work: Measurement, Inc., Federal Express and GM’s Saturn division. Each of the three demands the best of their employees; each has some of the most loyal employees in their respective industries. The common bottom line among the three is that they view their employees as thinking, feeling individuals with needs and aspirations of their own, and each recognizes that happy, fulfilled employees equals happy, satisfied customers. In keeping with Theodore Levitt’s admonition that the sole purpose of any business is to create and then keep a customer, each of these companies recognizes that any business achieves that goal only through their employees. Bibliography lists 9 sources. Workdemo.doc

Ben & Jerry's Home-Made Ice Cream / Human Resources : This 10 page paper discusses human resources at Ben & Jerry's corporation.

Preventing Drug-Related Workplace Injuries : A 10 page paper discussing the influence of drugs on the incidence of workplace accidents. Most reports in the popular press indicate that both drug and alcohol use are declining, yet conflicting reports exist. Some surveys conclude that substance abuse has declined in some age groups while increasing in others; the most disturbing finding of all as it applies to corporate America is that both drug and alcohol use are increasing in the workplace. Some employers are beginning to test employees for drugs immediately following workplace accidents, however, and are having good results in identifying and removing problem employees until they are either drug free or terminated, and finding an added benefit of reductions in worker’s compensation insurance premiums. Bibliography lists 11 sources. Druginj.wps

Drug Use / Abuse In The Workplace : 12 pages in length. There exists little tolerance for drug use and abuse in the contemporary workplace. Not only does substance abuse disrupt the flow of day-to-day production because of excessive absenteeism, incessant tardiness and poor job performance, but it also costs businesses billions of dollars each year in lost revenue. Drugs have no place in the work environment, yet there is a significant percentage of workers who cannot separate their personal lives from their professional lives, creating a potentially volatile situation by mixing the two together. The writer discusses drug use as it relates to the workplace. Bibliography lists 6 sources. Drugwork.wps

In the wake of downsizing waves, direct supervisors were responsible for so many hourly employees that they had no hope of real personal contact.

Bibliography lists nearly two dozen sources. Hourly.wps

Is Telecommuting Unfair To Women # 2 ? : In this well-argued 6 page paper, the point is made that tele-commuting does little more for women than keep them at home-- where they were a century ago.

Affirmative Action Has Always Existed For Whites In America : 3 pages in length.

The UPS strike has served to change the industry in that few business customers rely only on a sole shipper. Bibliography lists 6 sources. Parcelin.doc

Management, Labor, Unions, & The 1997 UPS Strike : A 10 page paper examining the relationship between unions and management, using the now-current UPS (United Parcel Service) strike as a paper-long example. The UAW and GM’s Saturn Division had enjoyed a symbiotic relationship for years, with each side working for the long-term benefit of the company while protecting workers’ rights, as well as their responsibilities. UAW members realize that there are thousands of workers overseas more than willing to eliminate auto maker positions here, and that it is in their best interest to work for increased productivity and efficiency. The Teamsters retain the old-school attitudes of the "evil corporation," glossing over all the benefits that UPS provides its employees. Bibliography lists 9 sources. Ups.wps

Management’s View of the UPS Pilots’ Contract Demands : A 6 page paper. The Independent Pilots Association (IPA) representing UPS’ 2039 pilots allowed a by-mail survey of their members last August (1997) following the end of the Teamsters’ strike against the company in the same month. Though UPS offered pay raises for their pilots of between 36 and 94%, the pilots nonetheless rejected UPS’ contract proposal. The average pilot pay at UPS currently stands at $151,000. Pilots are restricted by law from working a full schedule—they are all essentially part-time employees, and their current hourly rate (without a contract renegotiation) stands at more than $200. Bibliography lists 6 sources. UPSPilot.wps

Effects Of The UPS-Teamsters Strike : A 25 page paper discussing the 1997 strike against UPS, the first walkout in the company’s history. While large companies, especially those dealing business-to-business, rarely use delivery services for order shipment, UPS had been the delivery service of choice for many of the small businesses in the country. The US Postal Service and other delivery and courier services did what they could to make up for the more than 12 million pieces normally handled by UPS daily, but most were forced to place restrictions on accepting new customers long before the strike ended. While they prospered, many of America’s small businesses were damaged right along with UPS. Bibliography lists 17 sources. Ups-25.wps

The paper includes a SWOT analysis, identification of stakeholders in the private company and an overview of marketing activities. Bibliography lists 4 sources. Upsswot.wps

Are They Still Necessary? — Labor Unions in the 90s : A 20 page paper which weighs the relevance of labor unions today. There is growing sentiment that while unions performed a very real service for the workers of America at the time of their creation and greatest activity, that they perhaps have outlived their usefulness, that they are unnecessary for today's labor force. The relationship between the union representative and management team at any given work site has traditionally been adversarial, but some companies have been able to evolve past traditional relationships. Bibliography lists more than a dozen sources. UPS.doc

Unions in the World Of Labor / Are They Necessary? : A 10 page paper that provides an overview of the history of labor unions and then considers their roles in the current system. This writer demonstrates that they are no longer necessary constructs of business for a number of reasons. Bibliography included. LabUnions.wps

Advantages of Unions : A 7 page paper that explores the increase in union membership in 1997 because of advantages (general and specific) provided by unions to its members. The needs of today's employees in a reorganizing and downsizing corporate environment are attributed to a new growth in union membership. For this reason, unions have realized a reverse of the decline in union membership experienced over the past 15 years. Today, unions are helping workers in industries as varied as aircraft workers to physicians. Bibliography lists 7 sources. Unionad.wps

Trends & Principles In Labor Relations : 25 pages in length. Increasing numbers of companies today are working to create and maintain positive relationships with their employees. Many do have altruistic motives at least to some degree, but the returns of productivity are of greatest importance. Competitive pressures are greater today than at any other time, and businesses leading their industries in productivity and profitability increasingly are those with the most "human" forms of management and labor relations. Those most successful will be the ones that can recognize that nearly every employee is indeed a valuable part of the organization and wants to be valued as such. Bibliography lists 19 sources. Labornew.wps

Labor-Management Relations / Collective Bargaining : This 12 page research paper might be subtitled: has collective bargaining outlived its usefulness? The paper investigates the history of labor law limited to the NLRA and the Taft-Hartley Act and their impact on labor-management relations. The rapidly declining membership in unions and the changes in society have led also to a change in employee-employer relations. Workers are not longer willing to simply take direct orders from employers or from union officials and they clearly want more involvement in the decisions affecting their jobs. A new type of social contract is offered. Bibliography lists 8 sources. Collbarg.wps

Expatriate Employees / Training for Longevity : A 10 page paper discussing the role of the expatriate in the multinational business setting. Expatriate training not only includes job duties, but the most effective expatriate training entails far more than the details of the job at hand. There are also far greater issues that need to be addressed in the training of the expatriate for service in a foreign country. Employers understand that the most productive and the most well-adjusted employees are those who also have a meaningful home life and do not pour all their energies into the needs of the company. In return, the company also does not need to pour all of its resources into a poorly-trained and uninformed individual whose family literally can cost the organization millions of dollars in a failed mission because they were unprepared to assimilate into the local society. Bibliography lists 8 sources. IntlBize.wps

Expatriate Staffing & Dual Careers : 6 pages in length. Employers of both small and large corporations looking to expand their companies overseas are often caught in a staffing trap that keeps them from realizing their goals. In order to secure effective global talent sourcing, their best option is to promote and transfer qualified employees who have already worked their way up the ranks. However, in today's economy, many workers have spouses who also work and cannot simply up and leave their hard earned positions. As a result, the one most qualified to open and effectively run the overseas operation is usually the last person available for the job, leaving the task to one less capable yet free to relocate. The writer addresses the downfalls of expatriate staffing and how dual career families represent one of the main points of contention. Bibliography lists 8 sources. Expstaff.wps

In a time of one government scandal after another coming to light with increasing frequency combined with the general public disdain of the effectiveness of government in light of how much it costs every one of us, it is encouraging to find these changes in government process. And it is particularly gratifying to know that the government is making a concerted effort to conducting itself as a business, rather than a monstrous burner of tax dollars. Bibliography lists 7 sources. Gov-rcrt.doc

On-Site Exercise Room vs. Off-Site Gym Membership / A Comparison : This 8 age paper explores the values of offering a fitness center on-site. The writer asserts that the question is short-sighted.

Non-English Speaking Background (NESB) Immigrant Women in the Australian Workforce : A 10 page paper in which the writer provides an overview of the problem and research surrounding the issue of NESB. Critics have suggested that large populations of non-English speaking background (NESB) unemployed overburden the welfare and social security systems, and in their attempts to enter the workforce, also strain the country's remedial adult education programs. But in light of maintained immigration levels over the past decade, the path towards changing the negative perceptions of NESB immigrants within the workforce is imbedded not only in a system designed to enhance language skill development, but also to dispel the myths related to their lack of skills and their long-term impacts on the job market. Bibliography lists 3 sources. Nesb.wps
