Today, HR professionals are responsible for programs far beyond the profession's administrative personnel roots. They are expected to measure the success or failure of HR practices based on the achievement of organizational outcomes. Brand identity, bottom-line profitability, employee job satisfaction and increased management focus are all outcomes that can be achieved in part through an organization's total rewards program. This case examines a fictitious M. K. Makey organization and how they align their total rewards programs with their organizational goals and values.
M. K. Makey
Read the Makey Case.
Address the following questions in a well-integrated analysis:
1. Discuss what is meant by "Total Rewards." Give some examples.
2. Discuss how Makey uses its own products or services to enhance the total compensation for its employees. Is this a common practice in other organizations? Give real-life examples (employers by name). In your educated opinion do you think this is a good idea? Why or why not?
3. Identify the company's internal strengths and weaknesses and how the company responded to these factors from a total rewards perspective.
4. Make recommendations regarding an expansion of the benefits programs offered at the company that would further align HR with the accomplishment of organizational goals and values. Justify your recommendations with outside sources.
Submit your paper by the Module due date. Paper length: 4-5 pages (not counting the cover and reference pages).
