Through discussion, students are to identify and evaluate staffing options based on time frame. Should positions be short or long term? Should the decisions be based on a shortage or a surplus?
Two open-ended questions using Kahoot Go to kahoot.it 1. How would you handle the staffing problem presented in each of the scenarios? 2. What, if anything, could have been done to limit or avoid these problems?
Problem = Imagine a natural disaster has hit and NGOs have arrived to take care of people and property. These NGOs know that the fastest path to recovery is to hire local people to do the work, but the government website is down. How can newly arrived international organizations legally and efficiently hire local people?
We are creating a Knowledge Base (i.e. a wiki) of how to legally and
efficiently hire local people in countries around the world. Each wiki
page covers one country, describing how to legally and efficiently Hire,
Recruit and Select, citizens.
Main Headings of each Wiki page: Introduction and overview of the country Recruitment practices Selection practices Miscellaneous information Bibliography
Benefits to the student - Nothing like this Knowledge Base exists in the world! - Each year, this Knowledge Base (i.e. Wiki) will grow in size to the point that it becomes well-known, well-used to the international HRM community - After completing the two wiki pages, one Developed nation and one Developing, each student will be an expert on Hiring practices in these two countries - This assignment is both International & Comparative
For class closure, we are using an activity in Pear Deck "What do you wonder about today's topic/class?" joinpd.com
WATCH = Technical Writing: Reports (2 hrs 30 min)
