The human resource department is an important component for most organizations as they are tasked with many responsibilities in helping an organization operate successfully. Depending on how the human resource (HR) department is setup and the leadership within this department determines the viability of this department and whether or not they are perceived as an asset to an organization. Often times there are organizations that have a really good HR department that is valuable to the organization, then there are HR departments that are seen as a waste of money and should be outsourced (Marr, 2014). As with most employees, everyone has expectations of what a HR department should be and how it can be used as a resource by employees. In my current position, I have been working with my organization for approximately 9 years and have only had to deal with HR on a few occasions. My expectations of the human resource department is that they are seen as resource for employees to feel comfortable and confident in contacting when there is a problem and understanding that human resources are there to use when needed. Below I have listed some of my expectations of what a human resource department is for. These include: * Planning for Manpower- based upon goals for the organization, the HR department needs to determine how many employees are needed to achieve these goals. * Recruiting and Hiring-this should be one of the most important jobs for the HR department in order to obtain the best people for the organization. * Determining compensation of employees-based upon experience of the employee and position they are hiring for, there should be a pay scale in place to have fair and equal pay depending upon experience. * Performance Management-the HR department has levels of acceptability that need to be met accordingly in order for the employee to maintain in…...

...Apple’s Financial Health MGT 521 Ocotober 31, 2012 Apple Financial Health As stated before in my business analysis paper, Apple is a very rich, prosperous, and innovative company. Its innovations and creativity has enable Apple to keep growing, striving, and propelling itself to the top of the personal computer industry. Apples dominancy and growth is not just known by people around the world it is documented and can be proven by Apple’s financial statements. Financial Statements On apples income statement one can see that their net sales rises each year for the past three years. Starting in 2009 where net sales were just $42,905 million, in 2010 $65,225 million, and then now to 2011 $108,249 million (Apple INC, 2011). This data shows that Apple’s net sales nearly triple from 2009 to 2011. Their gross margin also substantially increases starting at 17,222 million to in 2011 43,818 millions (Apple INC, 2011). This margin represents the percent of total sales revenue that the company retains after the direct costs associated with producing goods sold for a company. This means for the past three years Apple is able to make more profit then the cost that it takes to make its products. Furthermore as with every growing company comes more expenses so their expenses have risen from 2009 to 5,482 million to 10,028 million in 2011 (Apple INC, 2011). Their expenses are counteracted and accounted for by their net income which triples from 2009-2011 from $8,235 to......

How did this culture contribute to the company’s downfall?  The Lehman Brothers management encouraged excess risk taking by its employees and rewarded them handsomely for this. The management also encouraged staff that took questionable deals and punished whoever was critical of company policies. It was also very secretive in addressing the remunerations of the top management and openly filed their financial reports wrongly to please investors and attract more clients. The Lehman management was also profit oriented opting to reduce health insurance of its employees in order to maximize on profits. This shows the extent management was willing to sacrifice to fulfill the company’s appetite for money placing their staffs’ interests in the backseat. 3. What role did Lehman’s executives play in the company’s collapse? Were they being responsible and ethical? Discuss.  The Lehman management openly violated the ethics code of business. For example they filed unverifiable, inaccurate financial reports openly contravening the Sarbanes-Oxley Act that states that companies should file correct and accurate financial documents. They also disregarded legit means of conducting business creating a culture where staff that practiced illegitimate means were idolized and rewarded thus encouraged to continue with their......

...Running head: CONFLICT SCENARIO Conflict Scenario: Resolving the Conflict Test123 University of Phoenix MGT/521 – Management Test123 Conflict Scenario: Resolving the Conflict First, in research to Conflict Scenario Singleton (2011) discusses the nature of conflicts in his article Workplace conflict: A strategic leadership imperative. According to Singleton: Conflict is a natural consequence of daily interactions. Workplace conflicts may rise because of: (1) lack of open or adequate communication between employees; (2) power struggles between departments; (3) the incompatibility of personal goals, social values, or personality characteristics; (4) role behavior required by employees’ jobs that conflict with their personal values; (5) leadership styles. (p.149) Further research into the nature of conflict scenarios finds that Myers (2005) asserts that “conflicts can be relational, process oriented and task oriented” (p. 306). As a manager of the Just Right Tire Company, the best course of action should be to have a face-to-face conservation with Jan, Sally, and Marc. This will help management in understanding their conflicts. The positives and negatives of their positions should also be considered to make an informed decision. Management should then explain to Jan, Sally, and Marc how these situations will cause negative impact on the project and on the organization. They should be reminded about the......
