Work on Assignment #1 - Global HRM with group members
Read assigned materials in Week 3 folder
Focus Activity - Quotation & Improvement Suggestion On the screen is a quotation about someone's experience with online applications. Think about how this is similar to your experiences of online applications for work or school. First, form groups of 4-5 and compare experiences to find one to use for this exercise. Next, use the paper provided to outline one suggestion for improvement to the chosen online application. Then, we will re-group for each group to report back to the class.
Lecture = HR Online - branding and communication
Lecture - Ch. 3 = HRM and Technology
Lecture - Balancing employee deficits or surpluses
Activity - Job Analysis and National Occupational Classification (NOC) Scenario = Head Office has asked for reduction in staff in one department, but at the same time you are to hire new people to set-up a new department. Since the employees in danger of losing their jobs have all been trusted members of the local office, your Supervisor has proposed that you can be assigned the work of researching if any of them could be re-assigned to the new department. This plan has been approved by Head Office because it would also save the Employer severance money and the cost of hiring. Using the NOC, find a pair of Occupations with vastly different job titles, but have approximately 75% similar work duties and qualifications.
Lecture - Ch. 4 = Designing and Analyzing Jobs
Learning Consolidation & Check-in Activity: LinkedIn Activity Find a partner. First, tell your partner one job on NOC that you would like to get upon graduation. Next, silently examine each others' profile up on LinkedIn as if you were an HR Manager. Then, with kindness, suggest to your partner ways they can improve their profile to maximize their chances of securing the preferred position.

Step #1 If you don’t have a LinkedIn profile, please make sure to create an account before class.
