The scenario:You have recently been appointed as the training manager for the southeastern division of a major supermarket chain in the U.S. Your territory includes fifteen retail stores and your responsibility involves working directly with store managers and other stakeholders to develop training solutions to meet the specific needs of the employees in the various stores. This includes, but is not limited to, performing needs assessments, determining appropriate instructional design and training delivery methods, and implementing and evaluating training initiatives.Three of the stores in your territory have missed their sales goals for the last two quarters. All three stores have received low customer-satisfaction scores and are experiencing increased employee turnover rates. The high employee turnover has resulted in the store managers hiring many new and relatively inexperienced sales associates, which further contributes to the problem.The senior management team of this major supermarket chain believes that training and development may help alleviate these problems. You have been asked to assess the training needs and develop a proposal to address the situation in the three stores.Directions:For the organization referenced in the scenario, create an organizational development strategy that addresses the organization’s competitiveness over the next ten years. In contrast to the more immediate needs that you have addressed in the earlier assignments, focus on how the training department can prepare employees to enable improvements in organizational effectiveness. Make sure to address the importance of having high employee retention rates and high levels of employee satisfaction.

In preparation for a formal presentation to senior management, create a 15–18 slide Microsoft PowerPoint presentation in which you explain your organizational development strategic plan. Use the slides to highligh

Choose companies that are in different industries. Collect the end-of-month prices for the last 21 months of your chosen stocks and the S&P 400 and set them on the spreadsheet. Taking this raw data, compute the monthly returns for all (there should be 20 returns). Make sure that I am able to see the cell formulas for each computation.Next, compute the mean rate of return and the standard deviation of returns for both your stocks and the stock market. Compute the beta value for each stock and plot the characteristic lines on 2graphs. Compute the correlation coefficient for the 2 stocks. Plot the returns of your stocks against each other on a graph within the spreadsheet. Next, assume that you construct a portfolio where you put equal money in each of your 2 stocks. Compute the 20 monthly rates of return for the portfolio and the standard deviation of returns of the portfolio. Finally, within the spreadsheet discuss in DETAIL your findings regarding risk/return of your portfolio as compared to the risk/return characteristics of the 2 individual stocks. These comments must be detailed with a complete analysis.

Jack Tar, CFO of Sheetbend & Halyard, Inc., opened the company confidential envelope. It contained a draft of a competitive bid for a contract to supply duffel canvas to the U.S. Navy

Jack Tar, CFO of Sheetbend & Halyard, Inc., opened the company confidential envelope. It contained a draft of a competitive bid for a contract to supply duffel canvas to the U.S. Navy. The cover memo for Sheetbend’s CEO asked Mr. Tar to review the bid before it was submitted.
The bid and its supporting documents had been prepared by Sheetbend’s sales staff. It called for Sheetbend to supply 100,000 yards of duffel canvas per year for 5 years. The proposed selling price was fixed at $30 per yard.
Mr. Tar wa not usually involved in sales, but this bid was unusual in at least two respects. First, if accepted by the navy, it would commit Sheetbend to a fixed-price, lont-term contract. Second, producing the duffel canvas would require an investment of $1.5 million to purchase machinery and to refurbish Sheetbend’s plant in Pleasantboro, Maine.
Mr. Tar set to work and by the end of the week had collected the following facts and assumptions:
– The plant in Pleasantboro had been built in the early 1900s and is now idle. The plant was fully depreciated on Sheetbend’s books, except for the purchase cost of the land (in 1947) of $10,000.
-Now that the land was valuable shorefront property, Mr.Tar thought the land and the idle plant could be sold, immediately or in the near future, for $600,000.
-Refurbishing the plant would cost $500,000. This investment would be depreciated for tax purposes on the 10-year MACRS schedule.
-The new machinery would cost $1million. This investment could be depreciated on the 5-year MACRS schedule.
-The refurbished plant and new machinery would last for many years. However, the remaining market for duffel canvas was small, and it was not clear that additional orders could be obtained once the navy contract was finished. The machinery was custom-built and could be used only for duffel canvas. Its seconhand value at the end of 5 years was probably zero.
-Table 9-4 shows the sales staff’s forecasts of income from the navy contract. Mr. Tar reviewed this forecast and decided that its assumptions were reasoable, except that the forecast used book, not tax, depreciation.
-But the forecast income statment contained no mention of working capital. Mr. Tar thought that working capital would average about 10% of sales.

Armed with this information, Mr. Tar constructed a spreadsheet to calculate the NPV of the duffel canvas project, assuming that Sheetbend’s bid would be accepted by the navy.
He had just finished debugging the spreadsheet when another confidential envelope arrive from Sheetbend’s CEO. It contained a firm offer from a Maine real estate developer to purchase Sheetbend’s Pleasantboro land and plant for $1.5 million in cash.
Should Mr. Tar recommend submitting the bid to the navy at the proposed price of $30 per yard? The discount rate for this project is 12%

Assignment
Assignment 1
MGT211: Human Resource Management

Assignment No: 1: CASE STUDY

Submission Date by students: Before the end of Week- 9th
Weight: 5 Marks

Tony has been director of human resources at TEAM FUN! A sporting goods manufacturer and
retailer, for three months. He is constantly amazed that the company does so well, considering
that everything is so loose.
Nothing is documented about job roles and responsibilities. People apparently have been hired
because Kenny and Norton, the owners and founders, liked them or their relatives.
Tony is lunching with Mary, a friend from college who now manages the human resource function
for a large financial investor. Tony tells Mary, “I don’t know if I should quit or what. They both got
mad at me last week when I suggested smart cards for security. The employee handbook looks
like a scrapbook from their kids’ high school football days . . . no, their high school football days.
No one has job descriptions. I don’t get it.
Everyone likes working there. The job does get done. Am I the one with the problem?”
Mary replies, “Couldn’t be you! It does sound like a great place to work. Has it grown fast in the
past few years?”
“Unbelievably,” Tony says. “It had 25 employees 5 years ago, now we have nearly 150.”
“That’s probably part of it,” Mary answers. “Remember how Dr. Smith said in his class that you
could get by without a formal human resource structure up to about 100 employees?”
“Yeah. That was a great class! I met my wife in that class! We did lots of team exercises and
projects,” Tony sighs.
Mary nods. “Anyway, maybe you could begin with writing your own job description. That would be
a start.”
“Then I could talk about formal job evaluation processes.”
Tony cheers up. “That’s a great idea. Have you used QUICKHR, the new software tool?”
Mary shakes her head. “No, but a package is a good idea. What’s your current HRIS like?” Tony
laughs until he can’t catch his breath.
Mary continues, “Okay. That’s another place you could start.”

Questions:
1. Help Tony write his job description.
2. How should he conduct the job analysis?
3. What should he say to Kenny and Norton to ensure their buy-in on this project?
4. How will job descriptions change the organization?

Vaccine-Preventable Diseases

Influenza is a virus that can be easily spread from person to person and kills thousands of people each year. Healthcare workers are at risk of exposing themselves to infectious diseases from patients and material and therefore can also potentially transmit these diseases to others. Preventing and controlling the spread of vaccine preventable diseases in the health care setting is vital to ensure proper infection control practices should an outbreak occur. As such, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) strongly recommend vaccination of health care workers.

You are a public health researcher. You have been asked to identify a vaccine-preventable disease and create a 10- to 12-slide presentation in Microsoft PowerPoint on a research design. Your research design should focus on determining why health care workers are not receiving the vaccination for your selected vaccine-preventable disease in their place of employment.

The presentation should also include the following:

Researched and identified the disease to create a research plan
An introduction and synopsis of the selected disease
History of the public health issue or disease
Social or behavioral antecedents related to the disease
Epidemiological relevance of the disease
Proposed research design
Sampling plan
Strengths and weaknesses of chosen research design
Support your responses with examples.
