The Big Bang! A theory ceremoniously used in explaining the existence of our universe but can also be attributed to the drastic change in globalization. This increase in globalization has impacted the economics of our nation. Its affects, furthermore, impact the way organizations manage people. Therein lies the strenuous task of implementing policies and systems to stave the endless change in the global workplace for human resource managers. These are just a few of the challenges that I’m ready to take on as a professional in human resource management.

My purpose for pursing enrollment into your Masters in Human Resource Management program can be explained with simply three words preparation, aspiration and dedication. Being able to properly manage human resources in an organization is no easy task and requires a specific set of skills. A set of skills that I’ve been able to acquire throughout my professional career, but I’ve also discovered there is a lot that I have to learn to successfully achieve organizational goals. That’s why preparation is key. Knowing when, where and how to implement different human resource systems and policies are just a few crucial functionalities I want to fine tune.

Working in local government, as a confidential secretary to the Town Supervisor, I was able to experience the effects of human resources in managing a municipality. After completing my undergraduate studies I was keen on teaching, however my aspirations toward administration have grown immensely while currently working as a County Legislative Aide. A great deal of my constituency is small business owners, where some have difficulty achieving business objectives. This may stem from poor human resource management. I truly believe that Human Resources will always play a vital role in a company’s success, because without employees a business cannot function.

An organizational design, thus, is the framework within which an organization functions. Both internal forces and external forces influence the character of an organization’s design. An organizational design tends to be defined in terms of structure, processes, and size (Chatain & Zemsky, 2007; Knoll, 2007; Zismer, 2011).       The findings of a description and an assessment of organizational design of a group practice family medicine clinic are presented in this paper.

...Introduction The Indian Financial Institutions Sector The Indian Financial sector is still dominated by Bank intermediation. Though the size of Capital market has started expanding significantly from the early 1990s, bank intermediation remains the dominant feature. The market capitalization as a percentage of GDP in India is $ 1.03 trillion, which is about 90% of the GDP, while countries like Hong Kong (525% of GDP), Singapore (221%) are way ahead. India s Bond market capitalization also remains low at 50 % (McKinsey report) with the corporate bond market way behind the government debt market. The bank deposits account for 52% of the GDP, and about three fourth of the total assets of the financial system. (Paper by Wharton publications on financial systems in India, 2007). The Non Banking sector, including the Mutual funds, Non Banking Financial Companies, Insurance companies and Other Financial institutions account for over 30% of the Financial Sector’s assets. This adds up to about 26 lakh crore in assets (2008-09-FSAP). According to The Financial Development index-2008, India scores better in Financial intermediation through Non-Banks ranking 16th, compared to a rank of 50th in terms of Banks.

In chapter 5 I learned about sound recording, speakeasies, and commercial radio. Sound recording is the recreation of sound waves including voice, music, and sound effects. A man by the name of Thomas Alva Edison is the one who created sound recording. Then I learned about speakeasies, which are illegal saloons and dance halls that quickly sprang up all over the country.

Intro to Psychology Paper

...While there are many behaviors in my life that I am not particularly thrilled with, there was one I want to change right now. So I decided to chose it for this paper. The behavior I want to change is biting my nails There are lots of reasons to stop biting my nails, but even knowing these reasons to stop it can be hard. Some of the main reasons I want to change are because my hands will look a lot better if I do not have jagged, short, obviously bitten nails. Biting nails can be painful too. Imagine that feeling when you pull a hangnail, except it is all across your nail. It sucks, especially when the nail is already short. After I graduate from Grand Canyon I plan to go straight into business, specifically communications. In the business world appearances are of the utmost importance, chewed and ugly nails would be unacceptable. Finally the biggest reason for me personally is the fact that girls notice bitten nails. I know girls who say one of the things they look at first is nail care on a guy. Being a teenage male, I do not want to jeopardize any chance that I might potentially have with a girl. Now that I have chosen a habit and listed some reasons to change, I need to look at what some of the triggers might be. I spent a lot of time thinking about what these could be and the ones I came up with were mostly along the same lines. I tend to chew my nails when I find myself in stressful situations. Math has always been a stressful subject for me and I find that when......

Intro to Pc Unit 6 Research Paper

...UNIT 6 RESEARCH PAPER 1 What is a NAS devise ? A network-attached storage (NAS) device is a server that is dedicated to nothing more than file sharing. NAS does not provide any of the activities that a server in a server-centric system typically provides, such as e-mail, authentication or file management. NAS allows more hard disk storage space to be added to a network that already utilizes servers without shutting them down for maintenance and upgrades. With a NAS device, storage is not an integral part of the server. Instead, in this storage-centric design, the server still handles all of the processing of data but a NAS device delivers the data to the user. A NAS device does not need to be located within the server but can exist anywhere in a LAN and can be made up of multiple networked NAS devices. What is the speed of the network adapter available on Nas device ? There are many varieties of NAS devices, depending on if you build it yourself or purchase it. The speed is usually 1GB Ethernet connection but it can be changed to multiple Gb, 10Gb, fiber optic by adding a PCIe network cards. What is the capacity range? The capacity range also varies. With a port replication and add on hardware drive controller cards there really isn’t a limit on size. Is there any fault tolerance (such as RAID) built into a NAS device? The capacity range again varies, people have built 40 TB (terabyte) machines and other just have 2TB. With port replication and......

Intro Italy Paper

...Discussion Board Forum 1 Located at the southernmost region of Europe, Italy is my chosen country of study for the Global Business Cultural Analysis research paper. With Rome as its capital, this fascinating Republic is full of rich history and Christian heritage. Lead by a Prime Minister, Italy boast being the seventh largest economy in the world (Thomas White International, 2013). The Italian peninsula is rich in the diversity of business, including world renowned automotive companies, fashion, textiles, tourism, and of course, the bounty of gastronomical wonders. Unfortunately, and adding to the flavor of this country, is the stronghold of corruption and organized crime that ultimately affects its own citizens and the further growth of their economy. Corruption has reached even as high as the Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi, who “has since been convicted of tax fraud, banned from public office for two years, and handed a one-year sentence.” (Cohen, 2013). I would like to study and learn about their local and international financial system, and discover why such a blessed country has such high unemployment rates among its citizens. I would also like to research their business culture, the types of corruption within the Government, their financial potential for improvement, and how international companies view investing in this interesting and diverse economy. Despite many negative factors, Italy continues to be the romantic capital of the world, full of dreamy......

...learning styles stated by Gardner in 1983: spatial (visual), aural (auditory-musical), verbal (linguistic), physical (kinesthetic), logical (mathematical), social (interpersonal) and Solitary (intrapersonal). (Zajac, 2009) The writing process is a long process to ensure success in multiple areas of school. It consists of six different steps: brainstorming, drafting, revising, editing and publishing. In using the writing process and becoming proficient in it, you will be able to produce quality papers for your class. “Studies show that students who learn the writing process score better on state writing tests than those who receive only explicit instruction in the skills assessed on the test. This type of authentic writing produces lifelong learners and allows students to apply their writing skills to all subjects." (Kozdras, 2015) However, in the process you will need to think critically about every step. By this I mean you will need to think outside the box, and depending on your paper or course, you might need to put your one foot on each side of the agreement or topic of your assignment. Steps I take to improve my critical thinking are, question any assumptions, don't take information on the authority until I've investigated it myself, and question things. An example, where I use these steps, is before choosing my next course. I wonder how other people's experiences where while attending the course, investigate the course myself and ask a question the instructor. After......

Intro Paper

...Robbie Wright Mrs. Fung ENG4U Wednesday October 29th, 2014 The Spartan’s Story In Messina, football is not just a sport. Football is the town’s mayor, the town’s mascot, football is Messina. “On Friday nights, the entire town of Messina waited for the gate to open, then rushed to the bleachers where seats were claimed and nervous pre-game rituals were followed.” (2) Messina brought ginormous pressure down on the football program, and a diamond was formed. John Grisham weaves together a set of embedded stories to construct a beautiful tapestry of not only the town, not only the glorified coach, but of the legend shared by the Messina Spartans. In the novel Bleachers, John Grisham effectively employs internal conflict to reveal how easy it is to be fooled by fake happiness. Neely Crenshaw’s life has gone anywhere but where he originally dreamed. “I don’t want to talk about football okay? I don’t want to hear about how great I was.” (71) Crenshaw has gone through tremendous suffering, and it is visible here that he has spent much of his life milling over his high-school self, yearning for the years where he was a God in Messina, the years where he was truly happy with himself. Through these years Neely had nothing to be conflicted by; he was winning all of his football games, the hottest girl in school was on his arm, and every D1 school in the state wanted him. Neely left Messina with a vow to never come back, on his way to Tech University, drawn by the...

...Traditional vs. Non-Traditional Families In today’s society parenting roles are changing drastically on a regular basis. For generations the ideal family was patriarchal and consisted of a husband working outside the home and a wife keeping the home together, even when she may have outside employment. Today, fathers are taking on roles commonly accepted as female gender roles in the family unit. Sometimes even as full time caretakers. The movie “Cheaper by the Dozen” (2003) presents both traditional and non-traditional gender roles when it comes to parenting. As the story progresses things in the household change and the family must cope and adapt to the circumstances surrounding them. The subject of this paper centers around the differences between the traditional and non-traditional roles affecting this family and how they change as well as the distinct picture this movie shows in the fundamental way society is changing. Before diving into the non-tradition parenting roles that this film explores it is important to know the background of the story. The 2003 film Cheaper by the Dozen is a loose remake of the 1950 film and book, both of the same name. As you would expect it starts with a traditional and very large family unit. In the work of Parsons and Bales, as discussed in Kemp’s “Women’s Work” is says that “Task specialization led to two distinct roles for men and women- women in the expressive role of nurturing and socializing the family members, and men the......

Surveys were employed to elicit data from 270 extension personnel from two Agricultural Development Programs in Nigeria. - All data was collected at a single point in time - Causality cannot be inferred from the results. - Future research investigations might need to collect data at different time points or employ experimental designs 3. Research shows that employees are able to identify sources of unfair treatment in the workplace (i.e. supervisor or coworkers) and these can promote employee dissatisfaction, distress, and aggressive behavior. -organizations can improve employees' perceptions of interactional fairness through deliberate policies and initiatives that recognize the worth of employees and treat them with respect and dignity. 4. An employee who is stressed on the job is much likely to experience dissatisfaction with the job and distress could lead to reactions of aggressive behavior towards the supervisor, coworkers and clients. - Hierarchical regression analyses indicated that fairness from both supervisors and coworkers were negatively related to job distress aggressive behaviors and employees would respond with dissatisfaction to unfair treatments from their supervisors. - Results showed that after controlling for the influence of personal factors (age,......
