Developing a Proposal for a New Employee Onboarding Program

THE SCENARIOAdapted from:Jones, F. S. (2008). Organizational entry and socialization (OES) – A case study. Retrieved from http://www.shrm.org/Education/hreducation/Documents/OES_Case%20Study_IM_final.pdfJill has accepted a position as a business consultant in your company.  She has an MBA and five years of experience as a business consultant.  Jill was happy at her previous job, but was drawn to your company by promises of high visibility consulting assignments, fast-track promotional opportunities, a higher salary, and performance-based bonuses.On Jill’s first day, she is greeted by the department’s administrative assistant, who profusely apologizes that Jill’s manager will be unable to meet with her until 11:00 a.m.  The manager is in a meeting that is running longer than expected.  The administrative assistant escorts Jill to her new office and gives her a stack of papers to complete.  She tells Jill that she will be back in about an hour, and shows Jill the restroom and the break room before she hurries back to her cubicle.Jill looks around her office and notices that she has no supplies.  There is a computer on the desk, but she doesn’t have a password and can’t find any instructions for how to log on.  Using her own pen, Jill completes the forms in about 15 minutes.  As she’s working, a few people pass by her office, but no one stops to greet her and since they all seem rushed, Jill doesn’t introduce herself.  After about an hour, Jill’s manager comes into the office.  He apologizes for not being available to greet Jill and hands her four large binders, one for each project Jill will be working on.  He tells Jill she should spend the remainder of the day reading the content in the binders and preparing for a meeting the next morning, when he will expect to hear her ideas for how to proceed in each of the projects.  The manager also gives Jill a list of 10 online orientation courses and tells her that in accordance with human resources policy she must complete all 10 within the next two weeks.  Unfortunately, since the IT department is backlogged, it might take a day or two to get Jill access to the system.  In the meantime, the manager suggests that Jill keep herself busy by reading the project binders and introducing herself to her colleagues.  The manager tells Jill that there is a deli across the street where she can have lunch, and that the human resources department is located on the third floor.  Someone from HR will take care of the paperwork Jill completed and make sure she gets her employee ID; HR will also give Jill a tour of the facility.  The manager then rushes off to another meeting before Jill can ask any questions.Jill makes her way to the third floor, where she is directed to a classroom filled with rows of computer terminals.  Although there are three new hires from other departments present, no one from HR is there to greet her.  After about five minutes, an HR representative comes into the room, boots up the computer, introduces himself, and proceeds to read from a series of PowerPoint slides.  He answers some questions but is unable to answer all of Jill’s questions, such as the effective date for her benefits.  Once he finishes his presentation, he introduces a representative from the IT Department, then leaves the room.  The IT representative also uses a PowerPoint presentation and rushes through key information, including how to log into the system and how to connect desktop computers to the shared printer.  The IT representative tells the employees that all of the information she has presented is available on the company’s intranet.  When she finishes her presentation, she tells the new employees to return to their departments.Jill goes back to her department.  Two of her new co-workers stop by her office and invite her to lunch.  During lunch they warn Jill that it can take a long time to get access to the different computer systems she will need to do her work and tell her she should make daily phone calls to Tech Support.  They also tell her that if she has any questions about her consulting assignments, she should ask one of them, because the manager is fairly new and he still doesn’t really know the company’s processes and systems.After lunch, Jill returns to her office and asks the administrative assistant for a company directory or a departmental contact list.  The administrative assistant tells Jill that all contact information is available on the company intranet and that she had called Tech Support to ask them to put a rush on getting access for Jill.  She assures Jill that she will have access to the intranet within 24 hours; however, it will take longer to get her access to the project management system and the expense reporting system.  Jill goes back to her office and begins reading the project binders so she can prepare for the morning meeting with her boss.Six Months LaterJill is struggling to learn the corporate culture, the consulting methods used by the company, and the performance expectations of her job.  Her manager and her peers are all very busy and while they willingly answer any questions she asks, no one volunteers any information, so Jill learns a lot by trial and error, or just watching others.  She has decided to start looking for another job.  She is not the only one to do so.  In fact, turnover of business consultants at your company is at an all-time high.  The cost of recruiting, hiring, and developing consultants who resign within six months is negatively affecting the company’s bottom line.  In addition, clients are beginning to complain about having to get used to a new consultant every six months or so and several have threatened to take their business to another firm.  The president of the company has asked the director of human resources to investigate the high turnover and create a strategy for retaining these highly paid, talented employees.Your Role in the ScenarioYou are the manager of the training department.  You report to the director of human resources, who discussed the president’s concerns in a staff meeting with the department heads in the human resources division.  You and the other department heads have been asked to provide recommendations to address the turnover issue.Last week, you and the manager of the recruitment and staffing department collaborated to conduct a needs assessment by (1) holding focus group meetings with consultants who have been with the company for less than one year, (2) interviewing the managers of these new consultants, and (3) examining exit interview data from consultants who left the company in the past two years.  You discovered a theme in the data: current and former consultants did not feel supported in their first few months of hire.  Instead, they spent much of their time trying to learn the company’s policies and procedures and trying to get access to the different systems.  As a result, they made mistakes, missed deadlines, and had to rewrite reports that didn’t conform to company guidelines.  The managers you interviewed wanted their new consultants to quickly reach high levels of productivity, but they didn’t know how to help the new consultants learn what they needed to know.You believe the company should invest in creating a formal onboarding program for newly hired consultants.  The director of human resources is intrigued by your idea but wants to know more.  How much will such a program cost?  How will the company know if it is effective?YOUR ASSIGNMENTYour assignment is to create a proposal for an onboarding program (also known as an orientation or organizational entry and socialization program) for new consultants in your company.  Although you may be tempted to create an onboarding program for all new employees, for purposes of this assignment you should limit your proposal to new consultants only.The term “orientation” is often used to describe both short-term and longer-term socialization processes.  For purposes of this assignment, we will use the following definition of onboarding: “a strategic process used to attract and engage new employees, reinforce their job selection, acclimate them to the corporate culture, and help them to get to meaningful contribution levels as efficiently as possible” (Lamb, 2011, p. 58).Your proposal should be 10 double spaced pages in length, excluding the cover page, reference list, and any optional appendixes.  Please use one inch margins and a font size of at least 11 points.  Do not include any spaces between paragraphs.  You must include a minimum of 10 references in your proposal.  You should cite scholarly sources published within the last ten years.  Please note that the websites of consulting firms are not appropriate sources.Your proposal must include the following elements (not necessarily in this order; feel free to organize your proposal in a way that makes sense to you):·    A cover memo from you (the manager of training) to your boss (the director of human resources) that clearly states the problem and describes why an onboarding program for new consultants will address the problem.·    An overview of the program, including the objective(s), length, and location of the program (see the Week 5 materials on writing objectives).·    Descriptions of:othe elements of the program, the content to be covered, and the training methods to be used.othe length of time (hours, days, weeks, months) for each segment of the program.ospecific methods to ensure transfer of learning (see Week 4 materials).othe person or group responsible for each segment of the program.oyour plan for evaluating the program, including the specific outcomes to be measured and methods for measuring them (see Week 6 materials).oestimated costs associated with developing and implementing the program, such costs for materials, guest speakers, facilities, etc.·    A properly formatted reference list.  Please use APA format for all citations, quotations, and references.You may include a table or chart that provides a visual overview your proposed program.  Put such supplemental materials in clearly labeled appendixes following your reference list (tables and charts do not count toward the page length requirement).  Support your recommendations about program, including content, length, and methods, with citations from your research about best practices in onboarding programs.ADDITIONAL INFORMATIONFeel free to give the company a name and to make up details about the composition of the HR function.  If you are assuming that the company already has certain elements for an onboarding program in place, make sure you describe those elements.  For example, you can decide that the company already has technology in place that you will use in your proposed onboarding program.Your proposal will have more impact if you provide an estimate of how much the turnover of consultants costs the company.  Here is a link to a turnover cost calculator you case use to estimate these costs:http://us.drakeintl.com/hr-tools/cost-of-turnover-calculator.aspx#resultFor purposes of this assignment, you may estimate costs for the program using realistic made up numbers.  You can decide how much consultants in the company earn, the cost of buying off-the-shelf training programs, the cost of a new HRIS system, etc.  If you want more realistic numbers, training program vendor sites, such as http://www.crmlearning.com/, are a good source of information about off-the-shelf training program costs.  What is important is that you identify the total cost for developing and implementing your program.

Replies to discussion board question 11.8 and 12.7 for madam-professor only

Must be at least 450-600 words, in current APA format, must use at least 2 scholarly articles as references, and one biblical scripture for each reply.11.8 As part of its bankruptcy restructuring, General Motors (GM) launched an ad campaign that revealed glimmers of a streamlined GM: fewer brands (Cadillac, Buick, Chevrolet, GMC, and fewer models within each brand.1. What research would you have done to determine which vehicle models GM should retain or drop?Well at this point the most important goal is to obtain the most profit.  I would have analyzed all the car brands to determine which car is the most profitable for the company.  For instance, it should not just be analyzed just which car sells the most because there are so many other factors to consider.  For instance, which car provides the most gross profit?  The car that GM sells the most might not necessarily be the one GM wants to sell based on the each individual car profit.  For instance, GM might sell a car that each individual profit is much higher, but only sell an average amount of inventory.  For example, you need to decide which car model sold annually and the average amount of inventory GM sells per year.   Then the next step is to research which car provides the lowest profit and may not be necessarily the most popular model.GM also needs to determine which brands may not be the most popular and also which has marketability for the future.  For instance, maybe GM needs to stop making as many trucks because the auto trend is for more green electric cars.  There is a definitely trend because people want to spend less on gasoline so many people are willing to buy electric cars.  So, another important measurement would be to forecast which cars consumers will find popular in the future.The company may need to downsize and just stop on building cars that are not as profitable.  It would be important to analyze the financial statements for the cost analysis on all models of the car.  For instance, a certain type of car may require a more expensive metal to construct the car.  The certain metal cost is expected to rise in the next five years so it is important to decide can they replace it with a cheaper material or would it be cheaper to stop making the car.2. What would you have measured and with what type of measurement scale?There are quite a few different ways that I would analyze this situation.  I would study the GM’s financials and also run a cost analysis on the cars.  I would then compare all of my inventory sold with a cost analysis of each car.  Then I would determine if it would be most profitable to close a certain car models factory versus the others brands.  For instance, a good way of analyzing the situation this would be to use an ordinal scale.  I would compare factors such as amount of inventory sold and profit margin.  I would run many ratios calculations on my inventory and accounts receivables.  For instance, is GM paying for a lot of inventory to just sit in the warehouse when a more cost efficient supply management could be constructed?  I would also start analyzing all the car models profit margins.  How could GM improve certain popular models?  For instance, it might be more cost efficient to change vendors for the same type of metal at a lower price.  It would be helpful to use ratio scales in this type of analysis as well.A great Biblical integration passage would be use one’s resources and time wisely.  In Colossian 4:5, “Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.”  I would encourage GM to follow this type of strategy and to ask the wisdom of other leaders how to best correct or improve the situation they are in.  Also God encourages us to learn and be wise in all our choices.  I would encourage the GM managers to study how other car companies have helped overcome this issue.12.7 Businesses frequently use surveys to measure quality.  In an effort to evaluate the perception of customers and identify product quality, surveys are used as a mechanism to gather information.   Data analyses using insignificant, interval and ratio data are generally straightforward and transparent.In the scenario, a Likert scale is used to collect various survey ratings using a ranking quality from high to low or best using five levels of classification in the consideration of strongly agree to strongly disagree.  Likert scales are considered to be one of the most popular methods of measuring attitudes in summated ratings.  The individual responses strongly agree through strongly disagree are assigned numbers, usually ranking from 1-5. In this manner, the responses to the various items are quantified and may be summed across statements to give a total score for the individual on the scale.If Strongly Agree (SA) represents the most positive attitude, how would you value the items below?  Record your answers to the items.The program is not very challenging.                                                 SA       A         N         D         SDThe general level of teaching is good.                                                SA       A         N         D         SDI really think I’m learning a lot from this program                         SA       A         N         D         SDStudents’ suggestions are given little attention                              SA       A         N         D         SDThe program does a good job of preparing one for a career         SA       A         N         D         SDThe program is below my expectations                                         SA       A         N         D         SDIn what two different ways could such responses be used?  What would be the purpose of each?A fundamental reason for analyzing ordinal data as interval data might be the argument Likert-type data has unique data analysis procedures. Numbers associated with the categories serve only as labels.  Numbers assigned to groups express a greater than relationship; however, how much greater is not implied. The numbers only indicate the order. Examples of ordinal scale measures include letter grades, rankings, and achievement (low, medium, high) (Maurer & Pierce, 1998). A Likert scale consists of a series of four or more Likert-type items that are combined into a single composite score or variable during the data analysis process. One method the responses can be used is combined, the items are used to provide a quantitative measure of a category or criteria in the research study.  According to Linacre 2002 typically the researcher is only interested in the composite score that represents the character or personality trait.The difficulty of measuring attitudes, character, and personality traits lies in the procedure for transferring these qualities into a quantitative measure for data analysis purposes.  Attitude reflects a person’s character and will.  Christians are encouraged to be Christ like and to keep him on the forefront and to seek God in all things and reflect a positive attitude “So that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises (Hebrews 6:12).”Rating scales have several uses, design features, and requirements.  Likert scales can be used as a means of course evaluation to provide feedback on the content and facilitation of coursework.  Likert-type items as single questions that use some aspect of the original Likert response alternatives, while multiple questions may be used in a research instrument. Likert scale data are analyzed at the interval measurement scale.According to Allen and Seaman 2007 it would take twelve separate responses to discover a person’s attitude toward a textbook and an instructor with the semantic differential. With Likert scaling, two responses would yield the same data. This efficiency can best be appreciated by the overloaded instructor. Students can evaluate numerous facets of instruction, course content, and the instructor in a relatively short period of time.

Discussion: Meeting the Needs of Service Users From Diverse Cultures

It is not feasible for advanced human services professional practitioners to be familiar with the cultural values, beliefs, and norms of every cultural group present within a community they serve. Being a successful practitioner in this era of diversity does, however, require that you practice open-mindedness, acknowledge possible differences without judgment, and research or seek guidance about culturally sensitive and ethically sound interventions. It also requires that you consider how the evolving context in which you work influences how you respond to service users.In this Discussion, you will respond to one of the case studies in the Hart City community. In doing so, you will examine cultural and ethical considerations related to working with the service user in the case study as well as how a recent current event might influence your approach.To PrepareReview your Course Announcements for possible information related to this week’s Discussion and Assignment.Review the Week 4 case studies and select one to focus on for this Discussion. Keep the case study in mind as you review this week’s Learning Resources.Review the chapters in the text that pertain to the cultures of the service user in the case study you selected. Given what you read about the cultures, think about how you would assist the service user while respecting their culture.Review the Ethical Standards for Human Services Professionals. Identify ethical standards that would inform your work with the service user in the case study.Review the article on the cultural impacts of social movements. Think about how current events, such as social movements, may influence how you approach the service user in the case study.Post your response to the following questions as they relate to the case study you selected:What can you do to assist the service user in achieving their goals while respecting their culture? What cultural aspects are most important to consider in this case, and why?What are your ethical responsibilities to the service user? Why are these ethical considerations necessary? Be specific and support your answer with references to the NOHS ethical standards.How would one recent current event influence how you approach this case study? Be specific.

Problem Analysis Worksheet

Week Five Case StudiesCase Scenario 1The practice manager at Happy Cardiology Services has been asked by human resources to create and implement a program to address concerns brought by the coding, billing, and credentialing staff (n=10). Staff collectively feel that administration does not fully understand their job duties and does not provide a way for the staff to share their concerns about the work environment. Comments have also been made to human resources that they feel some pressure to up-code and aggressively seek payment from patients. Morale is low, and staff have been resigning at a rapid pace. They are currently at a turnover rate of 22%.Case Scenario 2The staff members at Smiley Hospital are assigned to specific patient age groups and their responsibilities differ across the unit. The staff has been complaining that their evaluations do not accurately measure their responsibilities and that they are being measured on performance outcomes they cannot control. Morale is low because they believe their work is not being recognized or distributed fairly (leadership/ethical issue). The directors at Smiley Hospital have been challenged with developing a new way to fairly assign and assess individual performances according to their various job descriptions.Case Scenario 3The quarterly reports of expenditures for all the St. Agnes Health System have been distributed. You are the director team for the Orthopedic Clinic, and your area has grossly overspent its budget for the third consecutive quarter. There are rumors circulating that your job depends on reducing costs for supplies, the most expensive item on the list. Other rumors suggest that all the clinic staff fear they will lose their jobs if the poor financial report for the clinic causes the board to convert the clinic into an urgent care or outsource services (issues as to culture and the health of work environment, such as rumors, toxicity, and ethics related to culture and communication). Although morale has been low, you have been adequately staffed and there seems to be an increase in sick calls by everyone on the team.
