Paper details


Implementing Premium Employee Incentives to attract more applicants and retain them once they\’re hired.

create a persuasive presentation using Microsoft PowerPoint (must be PowerPoint format only) on their approved HR topic. The presentation should seek to persuade someone the value or importance of the HR topic. The student should assume the role of an HR consultant and put together the presentation in a way so as to try to convince executive team members (i.e. Chief Human Resources Officer, Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, etc.) as to the importance of the topic and the reasons the topic should be implemented or embraced in an organization. Slide shows should be 6-10 slides long (not counting any intro slides, summary slides, or slides asking for questions). APA citations and sources are not required for this assignment.

At a minimum slide shows should include the following:

§  Slide introducing the speaker (the student).

§  Slide(s) introducing and explaining the basics of the topic, i.e. what problem is the organization experiencing, what are you recommending, why do we need to do it, what problems does it solve, what are the alternatives, etc.

§  Slide(s) containing 2-3 pros of implementing or embracing the importance of the topic or method the student recommends.

§  Slide(s) at least 1 con of implementing or embracing the topic or method (no matter how good or how ethical or how morally correct the suggestion is there are always cons to implementing new ideas and it is best to address them early!), along with a suggested way for an organization to overcome, or at least minimize, the impact of the con. This should not be a con of the situation itself (you\’ve already decided that situation was not ideal), instead it should be a con to what you are recommending.

§  Slide(s) that explain how an organization could or should implement or embrace the recommendation. What it would look like in practice in an organization.

§  A conclusion slide which includes a \’call to action\’ for an organization. In other words, this slide should wrap up your presentation and ask the organization to accept your recommendations.
