A Targeted Staffing Approach:
Imagine that you are working as Manager of Human Resources in a privately held, mid-sized manufacturing organization that makes rugged work boots and work clothing. Your company is located in a southwestern city that has a larger than average percentage of people who are receiving various forms of public assistance. The public school system (elementary and high school) is rated one of the lowest in the nation. The city itself has a lower than average number of college graduates.
Your organization has just signed a federal contract requiring the hiring of 20 Engineers new to your organization who are bilingual (Spanish and English). The contract is for three years. Your boss, the VP of Human Resources, has asked you to:
Prepare a targeted plan in which you present your detailed strategies to recruit and select 20 Engineers to hire (full-time or part-time) within 8 months. Focus on job-relatedness. What are the qualifications of a trained Mechanical Engineer? (Make reasonable assumptions). What selection methods are best to assess whether or not an applicant meets or exceeds those qualifications?
Bring in at least 5 library sources to help strengthen and support your discussion. Also, bring in actual employer examples from your readings/research.
Submit your paper by the Module due date. Paper length: 4-5 pages (not counting the cover and reference pages).
Your paper should demonstrate critical thinking and analysis of the relevant issues and HRM actions, drawing upon all of the required background readings and relevant sources from your prior courses and your own TUI library search. Use website information sparingly (reputable websites only).
Prepare a paper that is professionally presented (including a cover page, a "List of References," and a strong introduction and conclusion).
Proofread your paper carefully for grammar, spelling and word-usage errors.
Address all aspects of the assignment as stated.
Provide private-sector employer examples of HRM programs, systems, processes and/or procedures as you address the above assignment requirements. Provide names of the employers. Use different employer examples in your case paper than those used in your SLP paper.
Limit your web search and focus instead on your library search. Bring in information from the background readings as well to help add depth and validity to your discussion.
Give authors credit for their work. Cite sources of borrowed information in the body of your paper as footnotes, numbered end notes or APA style of referencing.
