DQ1

Discussion Question–Choose one perspective in which to respond.

Non-HR Perspective: As the manager for your department, you have several vacancies you need to fill.  What steps would you take to fill these positions?  At what point do you consider involving your organization’s HR department? What do you believe should be HR’s responsibility in the process and why? 

HR Perspective: A manager comes to you needing assistance to fill several vacancies in their department, what steps would you take and why. Would your approach differ depending upon the positions, e.g. clerical, assembly work, supervisor, etc. How involved should you be in making a selection? Please describe.

In developing your response, you want to consider some of the following elements: recruiting sources, selection methods, background checks, and other course concepts address up to this point. You can also expand on the scenario, creating specific challenges (e.g. hiring challenges faced as a result of the pandemic), positions, needs, etc.

In 1947, long before garbage pickup was available in this rural area, a farmer began burying his non-burnable garbage in a low spot on his land. Over the years, containers with the remnants of oven cleaner, insecticide, paint thinner, nail polish remover, anti-freeze, and other hazardous wastes were thrown in the pile. In 1965, the farmer placed soil over the heap, which at this point was quite smelly, planted grass and forgot about it. About 20 years after that, the land was sold to a very wealthy homeowner who knew nothing of the garbage pit, and who constructed a multimillion-dollar home on the now-estate. As years passed, rain deteriorated the buried containers and the chemicals gradually seeped into the ground. Eventually they made their way to the water table. In 2009, local landowners learned their land wells were contaminated and were able to trace the source to the farm-now-estate. Should the neighbors be allowed to sue? Sue whom? The original farmer has long been dead and the current owner was unaware of the dump site. Should he be required to pay just because he’s financially able to afford it? If not the current landowner, can they use a federal remedy? Is this a federal problem, or should the state have to address this?

Recruitment and retention is vital in organizational success (Stewart & Brown, 2014) and collaboration between department managers and HR determine the quality of new employees joining the organization.  Managers should coordinate with their HR department as soon as they know a position is going to be vacant, which allows the HR department to start developing a job description early on, and allows the manager to direct staff in filling the vacancy until someone new is hired.  Managers who are proactive in their positions will save the organization time and money, and prevent wasting resources at the last minute to recover from employee turnover.  Managers who coordinate with the HR department can develop different recruitment strategies and look for new graduates, personnel leaving the military, or even recruiting out of High School based on organizational needs (Stewart & Brown, 2014).  

Managers who can forecast department needs and involve the HR department early on will help determine current employee needs, and future needs of the organization (Stewart & Brown, 2014).  Mangers that continuously utilize this skill will be able to assess their departments more effectively and quickly fill vacancies as needed.  They may be able to out-source from a different department or combine elements of two jobs into one to fulfill the needs of the organization.  The HR department should be included throughout the entire process when a need to fill a vacancy presents itself because developing job descriptions is a HRM function.  

The human domain is the only domain that crosses all domains in an organization and collaborative partnerships between departments becomes important during the hiring process.  Managers and HR departments drive the climate, and culture of most organizations.  HR departments are responsible for sustaining a positive work climate by finding the right individuals to fill vacant positions, and mangers are responsible for employee development.  Each department should accept some responsibility in the recruitment and retention process, and work together to improve organizational productivity as well as job satisfaction.

It may seem easy to identify the hiring need when you’re replacing an employee who just left, but the task gets more difficult if you’re creating a new position or changing the responsibilities of a role (Perucci, 2020). Vacancies within an organization can place a burden on those sections that are short. They will cause employees to take on additional work and mistakes can happen more often. As a manager, I would see what my options were with internal and external recruiting. If the organization can hire within, then they are already acclimated to the culture of the organization. I could ask my friends and family if they had anybody in mind that could fill any of the vacancies. I would review the job description to ensure it is current and add the additional tasks that are not covered. Each position will require a specific knowledge base. 

HR and managers should work as a time to streamline the process a minimize the time of the vacancy. I would reach out to HR when an employee submitted a termination notice or positions are open. HR can use the electronic resume sites they have access to, so they can post and pull from. These sites and programs help broadcast availability to a greater audience. Applicant tracking systems collect, manage, and sort data from potential applicants. Once applicants have been selected, HR can begin the screening process. Also, I could review the resumes to ensure their credentials have some similarity of the skills needed to fill the positions. Not all HR personnel know every position and specific terminology associated with an organization’s positions. The interview process, phone or in person, can be done by the manager to ensure the appropriate characteristics are present. HR can draft the offer letter and onboarding.

This case is a federal problem because it deals with serious environmental issues, but the state would also get involved to address proper waste management and the state will likely have their own environmental protection laws. The neighbors will be able to recover damages from the farm-now-estate, and the current owner of the estate will likely be responsible to compensate such damages due to negligence. The fact that he is wealthy and cannot afford it is not the deciding factor on who is responsible, but rather it would have been the responsibility of the new owner to investigate the property before buying it. CERCLA (Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980) places strict liability on individuals who have previously owned and currently own polluted land. The original legislative purpose of CERCLA was to empower the government to apportion liability among parties responsible for the thousands of abandoned landfills that threatened public health and safety (Hockstad, 2019). If the owner of the estate had in fact performed the necessary inquiries of the land before purchasing it, and had not learned of the hazardous material, he may have a solid defense to protect him from his liability. There are federal funds set aside as part of CERCLA for environmental protection to be used towards cleanup of sites where there is no party found liable. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will also compensate victims who are denied their right to a safe environment, and clean water is definitely necessary for survival.Hockstad, T. (2019). Conditional innocence and the myth of consent: The subtle coercion of CERCLA’s contiguous property owner protection. Missouri Law Review, 84(1), 93–120.

Business Flat Screen Televisions Market Dynamic Case Study

Description

“When developing your paper consider what it is you are trying to do: demonstrate your understanding of concepts developed in class and your ability to use them in a particular situation.  We’ve talked about a number of ideas at this point.  Some are more applicable than others.  Which one(s) helps you understand and describe better what is happening? What are your conclusions and observations when you apply the theory?  Does it give you insight into what is going on and why? Do they help you understand the market dynamic? You don’t need to hypothesize what someone might do in response (you might look at how one company has responded). If you have developed your paper around a theory not used in class, you might want to reconsider your approach.  “
