Personal Statement

A person’s first name ought to belong to that person; this naming culture is internationally accepted all over the world by most communities. However, my first name did not belong to me but my younger brother. The naming culture in the Korean community is different from the general norm that a person’s first name should belong to the individual. My name “g” has shaped me to become the person who I currently am. The Korean culture believes that the name of a person has significant impacts on the personal life of the individual and that of his or her family. The amount of importance that has been placed on the names of children has led to many Korean parents seeking the services of Naming Centers. These organizations charge people so that they can sell to them names with “good” meanings with positive reflections of their futures. My grandparents bought my name from a naming center in the country. They had this strong belief that a name should have a special meaning in the life and future of the baby and the community at large. I was named “I” by my grandparents because it is traditionally believed to bring a son to a family. Therefore, since my parents had not yet bore a son, they appreciated my name with hopes that a son will soon come their way. Although I do not believe that my name had a superstitious power, my little brother was born three years after me being named “I”.

419 Jeremy Response

 Hi Jeremy,

I came across your post on the other factors that affect the organization’s ability to attract the right applicants that would enable it achieve its objectives. I strongly agree with you that such other factors exist and, therefore, it is not only the recruitment hat impacts the attraction exercise. I am taking this opportunity to share with you some of these factors and their effects on the recruitment function.

The first factor is the employment inducements offered by an entity. As noted by Rynes and Barber (1989) employment inducements help in enhancing the applicants’ attraction and organizations should concentrate on improving the nature of such incentives. In this regard, employers facing attraction problems may raise salaries, offer child or elder care, implement flextime, develop internal career paths, improve benefits, and other working conditions improvements.

Patience 4193rd Forum Reply

 Hi Patience,

I am taking this opportunity to offer a response of your post. Through my readings, I came across text that stated that the recruitment is not the only variable that influences the applicants’ attraction. Rynes and Barber (1989) noted that there are other distinct strategies that increase the success of attracting labor. The first ‘other’ factor I would like to address is the one you talked about, recruiter. As the organizational representatives, recruiters or the hiring managers do affect the applicants’ impressions as well as the decisions about the entity. It, therefore, remains important that the recruiters have the right characteristics through selection or training.

Total Compensation Plan

 Introduction

Total Compensation Plan is aimed at discussing and identifying fringe benefits, salaries and wages for professional workers. It also caters for non-exempt service workers for various subcontractors. The Total compensation plan also complies with all legal requirements. It would include the paid vacation days, retirement contributions, and contributions for medical insurance. The development of total compensation plan depends on the state of economy (Kaplan & Atkinson, 2015). It should also meet all the employees’ requirements in order to help them focus on the job. The paper will discuss total compensation plan for Ford Motor Company, which is a competitor of General Motors Company.

The total compensation plan for Ford Motor Company should support the key objectives of the organization. In this respect, it should support sustainable business for the firm. The plan should also promote the employee retention. Similarly, the total compensation plan should support the firm objective of maintaining morale among its employees (Kaplan & Atkinson, 2015). On the other hand, the compensation plan should restrict turnover of employees. One of the key objectives of the organization is to design measures to retain its critical employees. In certain departments, a single employee has a huge impact on the success of the whole firm. However, the employee turnover for one individual may risk the firm’s success in the future. Therefore, a better compensation plan should be designed in order to retain top talents but limit the employee turnover. Measures should be put in place to prevent underpaying or overpaying of workers. In such cases, raise in salary should only be because of greater results. According to Kaplan & Atkinson, (2015) huge compensation does not act as a motivator or satisfier.. However, compensation acts as dissatisfier when an employee thinks he/she is underpaid (Kaplan & Atkinson, 2015).

The compensation should also cater for current issues and trends as well as prediction of future trends. The Ford Motor Company should reward top performers with better compensation plan in order to get the attention of poor performing staff. Therefore, a system that acknowledges better performers cannot reward all employees at the same rate. The total compensation plan should serve as a communication tool to all staffs about the achievement rewards and their goals and expectations (Kaplan & Atkinson, 2015). The total compensation plan should increase with productivity. Economic theory suggests that due to competition among employers, workers must be paid in terms of their productivity. If Ford Motor Company underpays its employees with regard to their productivity, they are forced to go to higher-paying competitors. On the contrary, if a firm pays more to employees than they do produce will lead to inadequate returns, which can result to bankruptcy in the future. The firm should therefore, track the productivity of its workers overtime in order to develop a compensation plan (Ghazanfar, Chuanmin, Khan, & Bashir, 2011).

Meet the Public

The political and corporate world utilizes ethics as a manipulatory tool thereby turning it into something meaningless. French philosopher Alain Badiou points out that here is no truth and, therefore, no universal interpretation of the word “ethics” either. According to Nina Montmann who wrote “Scandalous”, the ethical character can also be quite fundamentally understood in its dialectical relationship between criticism and affirmation: antithesis of good and evil in relation to the choice of free will.
