Week 8 – Signature Assignment: Evaluate Organization X to Recommend Items for Change
It is your first day as Director of Personnel Administration for Organization X. You walk into your office to find a letter on your desk from a former employee who very recently separated from the organization. The letter explains many experiences the employee witnessed or personally experienced before resigning. The employee’s letter is provided as an assignment prompt included in your weekly resources.
You take the letter to your boss, who instructs you to do two things. First, rank the issues in order from what you believe to be the most important to the least important. Briefly state why, citing the literature as support. Second, create a new policy or program to address what you believe is the most important issue in this letter. State why, citing the literature, along with one possible way to measure the effectiveness of the policy one-year post-implementation.
Also, create an infographic highlighting the new program or policy in a way that employees will understand and support. Some free infographic tools include Piktochart, Canva, and Venngage.
Length: 12-15 pages, not including title and reference pages, but including your infographic
References: Include a minimum of 7 scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly and professional resources, including seminal articles, may be included.
Your assignment should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic.
