Week 5 Discussion 1 Human Resource Management

Week 5 Discussion

Discussion 1: Workforce

During the past few decades, demographers began to predict major shifts in the ethnic and racial population of the U.S. These shifts, in turn, have significantly impacted the social composition of the labor force. The workforce changes that we have already seen in both the private and public sector include: increases in the number of women, increases in foreign-born or immigrant workers, and increases in the average age of workers.

In this Discussion, you will examine the evolution of an organization’s workforce and consider the implications on human resource management. You will develop strategies to capitalize on a changing workforce.

For this Discussion, review this week’s Resources. Review Chapter 12 of Human Resources Management for Public and Nonprofit Organizations, paying particular attention to the evolving workforce. Review “The Workforce” segment of the course media. Focus on the evolution of the U.S. workforce. Identify a government or non-profit organization and consider the role of workforce planning within this organization.

Then, visit the U.S. Census Bureau website or census bureau website of your nation. Select the state or region in which the organization you selected is found and identify the demographic trends there. Consider the trend and think about the preparedness of the employees for the future. Consider how a major change in the workforce could impact human resource management.

With these thoughts in mind:

Post by Day 3 a brief description of a government or non-profit organization you are familiar with. Explain the demographic trends that may impact the workforce of the organization you selected. Explain the evolution of the workforce in terms of types of employees, locations, relationship to organization, and the implications on human resource management (HRM).

Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the resources.

Definition of Critical Thinking

Definition of Critical Thinking

The first reading contained the following definition of critical thinking:

According to the article, Critical Thinking as Defined by the National Council for Excellence in Critical Thinking, (http://www.criticalthinking.org/pages/defining-critical-thinking/766), “Critical thinking is the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing and/or evaluating information gathered from, or generated by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning or communication, as a guide to belief and action. (Critical Thinking.org)

This definition uses words with which you may be unfamiliar. For our assignment this week, you will need to write an extended definition of each of the following words and demonstrate how these words apply to the critical thinking process and to your own experiences:

  • Conceptualizing
  • Analyzing
  • Synthesizing

Your assignment this week will be a five-paragraph essay, each paragraph should address the following:

Paragraph One

Begin by writing your own definition of critical thinking. Consider the following questions to guide your definition:

  • What does it mean to think critically?
  • What is the difference between thinking and thinking critically?
  • What do we gain or lose by thinking critically?

Paragraphs Two, Three, and Four

Once you have your definition of critical thinking, look up the definition for each of the three words listed above, and, in a paragraph for each word, use those definitions to describe how each of them apply to your definition of critical thinking. Be sure to identify the source or sources where you found your definitions. If you use any direct words from a source, be sure to place those words in quotation marks.

Paragraph Five

In your concluding paragraph, give an example or examples of a time or times when you applied critical thinking in your own life.

Your completed assignment should be written primarily in first person and should be 500-750 words in length. If you use sources in your writing, be sure to identify them. If you use any direct language from a source, be sure to place those words in quotation marks.

Your assignment should adhere to the stated page length requirement for the week and use APA style formatting including a title page and reference section. You should use Times New Roman, 12pt. font, double-spaced lines, and one inch margins. A description of APA style and the APA template can be found in the Writing Center.

write 5 paragraph paper USING IN TEXT CITATIONS AND REFERENCES

The exercise that I want you to complete is definitely unique this week. The textbook shares some resources to explore online. In the text, it states:

Before reading about the development of each sensory or perceptual domain, pause and think about your own sensory awareness. (Is this something you overlook or don’t think about?) Respectful caring, emphasized throughout this book, comes about as adults, caregivers, and parents slow down and become more empathic toward each other and very young children. In our busy, fast paces lives we lose touch with our bodies and sensory abilities and how they are connected to everything we think and do. To become a better observer of young children and a more sensitive caregiver think about and reconsider your own sensory awareness.

The exercises linked below will help you to do this.
Visit this link: www.sensoryawareness.org (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. and complete one of the sensory experiments shared.

Influence of Economics on Household Decision Making

Purpose of Assignment

To locate, retrieve, and evaluate the effects of macroeconomic indicators on your own decision making.

Assignment Steps

Resources: Tutorial help on Excel® and Word functions can be found on the Microsoft®Office website. There are also additional tutorials via the web offering support for Office products.

Scenario: Consider your last big purchase such as a car, appliances, home repairs, home purchase, computer equipment, college tuition, or another “big-ticket” item, which are often purchased using loans/financing (by borrowing money). Also consider your decision-making process that led you to choose a particular make, model, or brand of the product (or service) you purchased and whether it was the right time to make the purchase given economic conditions at the time of your purchase. While analyzing your decision, keep in mind everything from interest rates to the prices of complementary and substitute goods are driven by human economic behavior.

Develop a minimum 1,050-word analysis of your decision-making process in which you include the following:

  • Retrieve statistics on Real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and on Real Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) by year for the last ten years. You can retrieve those statistics from internet sources including, but not limited to, the Federal Reserve of St. Louis’s FRED web site, the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) web site, or another credible source of your choice. Post these statistics in a single worksheet of an Excel® workbook and submit your Excel® file with your report. In your report, discuss the latest 10-year trends in both GDP and PCE. Also discuss how the trends in GDP compare with trends in PCE. You are encouraged to include graphs of these statistics in your report; you could create the graphs in Excel®and copy them into your report.
  • Retrieve statistics on the Effective Federal Funds Rate and on the Consumer Price Index: All Items Less Food and Energy by year for the last 30 years. You can retrieve those statistics from internet sources including, but not limited to, the Federal Reserve of St. Louis’s FRED web site, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) web site, or other credible sources of your choice. Post these statistics in a single worksheet of an Excel® workbook and submit your Excel® file with your report. In your report, discuss how the trends in the Effective Federal Funds Rate compare with trends in inflation. If you took out a loan to pay for your “big-ticket” purchase, what was the interest rate on your loan? Were interest rates rising or falling at that time? Were interest rates relatively high or low at that time? You are also encouraged to include graphs of these statistics in your report.
  • Discuss the influence of any Federal government or state government programs, such as tax credits or tax deductions for energy-saving/efficiency purchases, on your decision to make your last big purchase; or if government incentives did not factor into your decision, explain why not.
  • Develop conclusions about the economy’s influence on personal and business decision-making relative to purchases of big-ticket items, investments, or other major purchases.

Cite a minimum of three peer-reviewed sources. Note: The Federal Reserve of St. Louis, the Bureau of Economic Analysis, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics can be cited to fulfill this requirement.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
