The U.S. Census Bureau Fdca Project

...The U.S. Census Bureau Field Data Collection Project: Don’t Count On It Alicia Pepitone IT/205 05/04/2012 Terence Burney The U.S. Census Bureau Field Data Collection Project: Don’t Count On It The Field Data Collection Automation (FDCA) project is important to the U.S. Census Bureau, because it helps by collecting information of residents by using handheld devices rather than paper. It was supposed to cut the cost and replace paper with an electronic device. By using these devices the residents just sign this device as if they were signing for a package and it should have cut the amount of time it took the bureau to collect this information from the citizens. There is a lack of accountability in the FDCA project, there was poor communication mainly due to them not anticipating the amount of information these handhelds would have to take in to memory. The bureau lacked to give accurate system requirements and scheduling information. “The system has a variety of components, carriers, devices and applications to organize and coordinate” (The U.S. Census Bureau Field Data Collection Project: Don’t Count on It, Jean Thilmany, 2009) page 413. The Bureau should have tried harder to get updates from the Harris Corporation. The project was just too immature to do a job of this magnitude. The FDCA project continued on in 2010, but was far less efficient than they initially thought it would be and cost a great deal more at three billion in......

Adjustment Bureau

...Culture Alert “The Adjustment Bureau” leaves its audience entertained, however it also gives them something of great significance to discuss and think about. The movie broadly addresses concepts of predestination, free-will, and to what some would view as God. Although “The Adjustment Bureau” does not reflect a biblically view of God and his nature, however the movie does a nice job of demonstrating the importance of these issues. Throughout this paper I will explore the worldviews in correlation with Ravi Zacharias’ components presented in this film, and discuss my views and opinions on the issues portrayed. Having a consistent worldview can often be challenging with the different influences in life, therefore seeing a consistent worldview in a movie can be difficult. “The Adjustment Bureau” relates to “free-will” concept that philosophers have debated for years. David, the main character, is a politician running for Senate. His campaign is going really well until a photo from college is leaked to the media of him. David also meets a woman, Elise, and immediately falls in love. Elise inspires him in many ways and he even gives a very impressing speech. David soon realizes that his choices are not his own and the direction of his life is not under his control after he tries to start a relationship with Elise. His life direction is decided by a higher power. David actually accidently sees a mysterious group of men, “the adjustment bureau”, performing mind manipulation......

Bureau of Fire Protection

...UNIVERSITY OF THE PHILIPPINES National College of Public Administration and Governance Diliman, Quezon City PERFORMANCE OF THE BUREAU OF FIRE PROTECTION (BFP): CONTRIBUTIONS TO FIRE MANAGEMENT A proposal submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for PA 199.2 By: Nheo Cervantes Geofel Soriano Adviser: Vicente Mariano September 27, 2011 I. Introduction Fires are one of the few calamities of which we can prevent. Besides the efforts of the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP), and the passing of the Revised Fire Code or RA 9514 in 2008, fires are still one of the leading man-made disasters in the Philippines. In 2011, there had already been several fires like the incident last February 7 which left 3000 families homeless. Other than that, most establishments, most notably in Baguio, are fire safety violators (Dar, 2011).  These incidents bring into question the effectiveness of the actions and programs of the BFP in terms of their response to fire emergencies. Because of this, the group decided to make a study that would assess the effectiveness of the BFP's response methods, campaigns and projects, and would try to come up with proposals that would increase the effectiveness of fire management in the country. II. The Problem The research problem of the group would focus on the Bureau of Fire Protection’s response to fire incidences in a specific area. Ideally, the BFP should be able to effectively respond to fire emergencies within......

Pay as Motivator

...yTHE IMPORTANCE OF PAY IN EMPLOYEE MOTIVATION: DISCREPANCIES BETWEEN WHAT PEOPLE SAY AND WHAT THEY DO Sara L. Rynes, Barry Gerhart, and Kathleen A. Minette A majority of human resources professionals appear to believe that employees are likely to overreport the importance of pay in employee surveys. However, research suggests the opposite is actually true. We review evidence showing the discrepancies between what people say and do with respect to pay. We then discuss why pay is likely to be such an important general motivator, as well as a variety of reasons why managers might underestimate its importance. We note that pay is not equally important in all situations or to all individuals, and identify circumstances under which pay is likely to be more (or less) important to employees. We close with recommendations for implementing research findings with respect to pay and suggestions for evaluating pay systems. © 2004 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. It is easy to overestimate the frequency with which adults actually go to the opera and underestimate the frequency with which they watch TV cartoons on Saturday mornings, based on their self-reports. (Nunnally & Bernstein, 1994, p. 383) Rynes, Colbert, and Brown (2002) presented the following statement to 959 members of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM): “Surveys that directly ask employees how important pay is to them are likely to overestimate pay’s true importance in actual decisions” (p. 158).

Federal Bureau of Prisons-Reentry

... Federal Bureau of Prisons-Reentry One very important function of the corrections system is to assist inmates that are up for release from federal prison. Assistance is given by connecting these individuals to outside organizations for assistance. These organizations help to reduce recidivism rates. “The BOP contracts with residential reentry centers (RRCs), also known as halfway houses, to provide assistance to inmates who are nearing release. RRCs provide a safe, structured, supervised environment, as well as employment counseling, job placement, financial management assistance, and other programs and services. RRCs help inmates gradually rebuild their ties to the community and facilitate supervising ex-offenders' activities during this readjustment phase.” There are basically five general services provided by (RRCs.) (1) Accountability- Daily counts are conducted to all residence. A resident is only authorized to leave by sign out procedures, and only approved activities are accepted. These are for recreation, counseling, looking for employment and working. These approved activities are constantly monitored by RRC staff members. Individual’s that return to their RRC facility may be given a random drug/alcohol test. (2) RRC staff members help residence locate employment opportunities in their local communities. ” offenders are expected to be employed 40 hours/week within 15 calendar days after their arrival at the RRC.” (3) Residence are required to pay a fee that...

Federal Bureau of Investigation

...place many different special operation units and federal agencies intervene in the cases. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is a unit that handles financial crime, violent crime, organized crime, public corruption, violations of individual civil rights, and drug-related crimes. They are a unit that has been around for a long time and has helped solve many cases. “The Federal Bureau of Investigation was founded in 1908 when the Attorney General appointed an anonymous force of 34 Special Agents to be investigators for the Department of Justice. Before that, the DOJ had to borrow agents from the U.S. Secret Service. In 1909, the Special Agent Force was renamed the Bureau of Investigation, and after countless name changes, it became The Federal Bureau of Investigation in 1935. When the FBI was established, there were not an abundance of federal crimes, so it investigated criminal acts that dealt with national banking, bankruptcy, naturalization, antitrust, peonage, and land fraud. In June of 1910, the FBI grew larger because the "Mann Act" (Made it a crime to transport women to other states for immoral reasons). The FBI could now prosecute people whom tried to flee over states lines. Due to its continued worth and effectiveness, the FBI's number grew to over 300 special agents and 300 support employees over the next few years” (History of the FBI. 2003. August) The Federal Bureau of Investigation is the chief investigating branch of the United States Department of Justice. ......

Gender Pay Gap

...Taylor University Abstract The purpose of this paper is to examine the gender gap and the potential factors that contribute to income inequality. Since the passing of the equal pay act, the median weekly earnings of women is still just seventy eight cents on each dollar that men earn (Center for American Progress, 2010). To put this in context, the pay gap in 1970 was sixty two cents and in 1992 it was seventy five cents (Institute for Women’s Research, 1993). Undervaluation of women’s work, occupational gender segregation, and discriminatory treatment in the workplace continue to hamper efforts to reduce the gender pay gap. A pay check is women’s and men’s most important source of income. Therefore, it is surprising, discriminatory and unfair to know that after both genders have worked satisfactorily on the same job; they do not receive the same pay. The gender pay gap is the best way to measure pay inequality between men and women. The authors discuss Gender Compensation Discrimination and examine the historical trends in pay difference, the various causes and the methods and paths considered for closing the Gender Compensation Gap. Key words: Gender Compensation Discrimination, Gender Compensation Gap, Equality, Rights and Privileges, Sex Segregation, Gender Pay Gap, Wage Gap, Discrimination, Equal Pay Act, Occupational Gender Segregation, Gender Differences, Gender-Based Salary Differences, Executive Compensation, Higher Education.

Ending Gender Pay Disparities

...March 5, 2009 Ending Gender Pay Disparities Pay disparities for women are a longstanding and troubling issue. While there was some advance in relative women’s pay as indicated by statistics on the ratio of female to male pay, in around 1994 the ratio leveled off suggesting an end to progress (See Figure 6.1, McCall 22). The differences in pay are widespread and pervasive applying not only to female-oriented jobs but to any jobs in which men and women both engage. Only at the bottom of the wage scale do women’s and men’s pay tend to converge because of the effect of the minimum wage. Statistics from 2005 show women earning only 0.77 of what men earn (Weinberg 26). Research has brought out many factors that seem to be influential, such as number of hours worked, experience, and differences in employers (Weinberg 26). However, such explanations do not offer much hope for improving the situation so as to make equal pay a reality. The recently passed Ledbetter Bill has closed some loopholes, but it is unlikely to have a significant effect on ending pay disparities (Erbe). Some might argue that the government can do no more since these disparities result from factors other than gender discrimination. However, as long as women make considerably less than men in similar jobs, women are second-class citizens and not full participants in society. I strongly urge Congress to craft and pass legislation that recognizes the existence of gender pay disparities as an......

Unequal Pay in the Us

...According to the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, women in the US are paid 77 cents to every dollar that men are paid (The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, 2009). African-American women on the other hand, earn 64 cents for every dollar, while Latina women earn 55 cents per dollar earned by men. The Equal Pay Act of 1963 (EPA) was created to require that men and women in the same workplace be given equal pay for equal work (U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, n.d.). The forms of pay are also covered by this law and include salary, overtime pay, bonuses, stock options, etc. (U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, n.d.). Unfortunately, today we still experience the unfair practice of unequal pay. To address this issue, in 2009, President Obama signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. The purpose of this act was to restore the discrimination caused by the ruling in the Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co case (The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, 2009). The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act gives individuals the power to challenge pay discrimination and forces employers to eliminate any discriminatory pay practices (The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, 2009). Relevance & Importance The issue of wage gap and discrimination is one that not only affects women globally, but it also affects the economy in the United States. The Center for American Progress published an article explaining the varying reasons why Equal Pay is important in regards......

Incentive Pay

...growing proportion of firms have started using Results Control as a way of keeping employees motivated rewarding employees for their efforts and outcomes and including this aspect in the pay schemes. (Bryson, Freeman, Lucifora, Pellizzari and VirginiePérotin [2011]). This has been supported by research that indicates pay incentives lead to greater effort than it would have if it was not present (Bonner, Sprinkle [2002]). Results Control empowers employees to take the best possible actions and holds them accountable for these actions in order to obtain the desired results (MCS). The fact that even today many employers continue to use pay incentive systems is an indicator that the model has worked and there are many advantages to using it, however some evidence indicates that there are few factors that determine its effectiveness (Bonner, Sprinkle [2002]). This essay will focus on the relationship between pay incentives and employee effort using economic theories, advantages and instances where it has been successful and the factors that impact the effectiveness of these incentives. The essay will contend that pay incentives are powerful motivators to induce effort however it needs to be designed carefully considering various contingency factors. There is a strong relationship between pay incentives and employee efforts, consequently greater efforts lead to higher performance. Evidence suggests that there are certain theories that detail the process through which......

Setting Pay and Granting Pay Raises

...Army’s Method for Setting Pay and Granting Pay Raises Christine Rollins Webster University Abstract This paper explorers the methods that the Army uses for setting pay and granting pay raises. The basic pay that is received is based off of two things, the amount of time one has been in the service and the rank at which one hold.

Also, possible impact from the economy, along with possible recommendations for improvements for pay will be discussed.

Gender Pay Gap

...Closing the Gender Pay Gap Through Compensation Strategies Abstract The purpose of this research assignment is to identify the causes of the gender wage gap and how to combat them using compensation strategies. Currently women make less than men for doing equally comparable work in many industries. In order to design a fair and transparent structure we can follow a pay for performance pay structure. This incorporates values that are important to a companies HR strategy and business strategy that untimely reflect the business to the public and possible talent. In today’s market, organizations are facing a gender pay gap issue. Currently women in the labor market can make less than a man for a number of different reasons. Through research and investigation we determine how we got into the situation we are in today, concerning demographics and historical changes; and what actions we take from here to ensure equality within the workforce across each gender concerning pay structure. The demographics of today’s workforce are significantly different than those of the early 1920’s. Our massive industrial boom caused the need for employees to skyrocket. The products that came into the market made everyday life easier such as radios and the finely tuned automobile. However, at this time, women were often contributors to other industries where they could use their knowledge of household items and techniques.

To Pay or Not to Pay Doc

...To Pay or Not Pay Student Name Professor Name Course Title July 6, 2016 1. By mid-2009, your organization was in a circumstance it had not confronted for quite a long time—its deals had dropped by 16 percent. Indeed, even General Motors, the bankrupt General Motors, which appeared as though it could do nothing ideal for some years, grew 8 percent amid the same time. As indicated by a few writers, the review cost Toyota more than $2 billion. Be that as it may, by March 2010, things appeared to be on the bounce back. Deals grabbed significantly, 35 percent from the earlier year, and 88 percent of the preceding month. You could simply pay the fine and concede shortcoming, however, if you do, the organization's notoriety for quality will take a maybe deadly blow. You wouldn't just be admitting that you committed an error, yet that you intentionally lied about it so as to continue profiting. Besides, affirmation of concealing would give extraordinary backing to the many claims that case Toyota submitted buyer extortion. What amount of cash would those settlements cost? You could, of course, only challenge the punishment and the confirmation. Be that as it may, your organization's notoriety is now delicate, and battling the administration (and possibly losing) may aggravate things even. 2. The push to lift quality at the organization will be driven by a group of quality boss officers from real locales, including North America and Europe. Toyota said it would hold......

Pay for Performance

...23 February 2012 Pay for Performance What better way to drive people to work harder and more efficiently, you may ask, than to offer them a special carrot: more money for hitting specific company targets? The idea seems perfect. Studies have shown time and again that pay represents one of the most important factors involved in retaining qualified employees, it is little wonder that there has been a great deal of attention focused on how best to compensate employees for their performance in recent years. Moreover, because employee performance and productivity is inextricably related to organizational profitability, these issues have assumed new relevance and importance in the current economic environment. There have been some mixed reviews concerning pay-for-performance approaches to enhancing employee performance, though, that suggest there is more involved than simply throwing money at top performers. Despite these constraints, many authorities suggest that pay-for-performance programs have a lot to offer organizations seeking to identify better ways to improve employee performance. Pay for performance is not a new idea. Organizations all over the world use this type of system when offering bonuses based on predetermined results or commission. Pay-for-performance programs, also known as incentive pay or merit pay, are a solid approach to rewarding top-quality performance by employees in many types of organizations including healthcare settings. Pay for performance is......
