The class discussions will occur each week. By day three of each week (Thursday), students must respond to at least three of the instructor’s topics/questions. By the last course day of each week (Monday), students must post replies to at least three classmates’ posts. All posts should be at least 75 words in length. Responses are to be thoughtful and well-written (grammar, spelling, etc.). Late or missing discussion posts will not receive credit.
- Discuss several areas in which HR can affect organizational culture positively or negatively.
- The HR department is not solely responsible for the ethical behavior of employees within an organization, but it is a key factor. What Biblical principles could an HR department adopt to foster ethical behavior throughout the organization?
- Describe your expectations for your current job in terms of treatment, job security, pay/benefits, promotion. How were these expectations formed (specific statements from co-workers or boss, handbook, orientation…)? Have they been met?
- Quality employees and effective HR practices (selection, training, compensation…) are essential for organizational success. From your experience as an employee or customer, discuss a specific company where you have witnessed this truth.
