After having listened to 56 witnesses during 15 weeks of hearings in the city of Houston in Texas, the jury decided the issue of eight men and four women unanimously that two of the executives of Enron were Kenneth Lay and Jeffrey Skilling were guilty of a number of charges against them in issues related to corruption and conspiracy, as well as lying about the financial troubles of the company. Skilling was found guilty of 19 charges out of 28 charges, was convicted if the whole will make his prison term of 275 years. The Lay was found guilty of six counts of fraud and conspiracy. Finally the judiciary issued a sentence of 24 years and four months to Jeffrey Skilling, and said the judge who issued the ruling during the recitation of the verdict, "The crimes of this magnitude deserve severe punishment."

...2. How do culture and sub-culture impact IHRM? Illustrate your answers with real-life examples. IHRM is intrinsically international and multicultural, contributing to making culture a frequent component of IHRM issue. Culture is the ability of human capacity in adapting to circumstances and transmitting this coping skill and knowledge to subsequent generations. It gives people a sense of belonging and how they should behave and what they should be doing. Culture impacts behavior, morale and productivity at work and includes values and patterns that influence employees’ attitudes and actions (1). Subculture is a group of people within a culture that differentiates them from the larger culture to which they belong (3). There are two types of cultures that affect IHRM: Organizational culture and National culture. Organizational culture affects how an organization copes with competition and change, whether in terms of technology, economics or people. Firstly values, norms and behaviors play a big part in organization culture. The role of leader in an organizational culture is powerful- such in the case of Apple founder - Steve Jobs is seen as innovative, creative and inspiring, making Apple one of the most innovative companies in the world. The leader normally creates organizational culture and its existence would subtly influence perception, thought, action and feelings of the employees in ways that are consistent with their cultural beliefs. Organizational culture and......

...(including many software companies and consulting 1irms) have few physical assets. Banks are selling off their corporate headquarters because their competitive advantage ‐‐ their source of wealth ‐‐ is found in knowledge. Mining companies are also outsourcing several aspects of physical assets. Their ships and rail cars are often owned by others. The digging equipment is leased or owned by companies that specialize in drilling. The major oil companies today are mainly in the knowledge business – prospecting for minerals or marketing what others have found and extracted. This question also suggests a subtle misunderstanding by the executive about knowledge management. Although much corporate knowledge resides in the brains of its employees (called human capital), it also resides in the organization’s systems and structures (known as structural capital)....

...Running head: HOW ARE EMPLOYEES SELECTED? How are Employees Selected? Sean Kayse Human Resources Management 2013 – 2014 Term 5 The selection process of new Employees can be a very complicated process. In some cases, it can be a very time consuming one, as well. Employers often use tests and other selection procedures to screen applicants for hire and employees for promotion. There are many different types of tests and selection procedures. (“Employment Tests and Selection Procedures, n.d.”) The test and procedures that we are going to look at in this paper are cognitive tests, personality tests, medical examinations, credit checks, and criminal background checks. All of these tests are designed to provide the best person for the job. On some occasions, these tests and procedures can violate the federal anti-discrimination laws. If an employer uses the test to, intentionally discriminate a person bases on race, color, sex, national origin, religion, disability, or age. They can also violate these laws, if they are used to exclude people that are in a particular group by race, sex, or another covered basis. The employer must be able to show that the testing does not violate any person, based on these criteria. Employers should administer tests and other selection procedures without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, religion, age (40 or older), or disability. They should ensure that employment tests and other selection procedures are properly validated for the......

So we need to take steps to place at least a nurse in the night and a Safety Manager should be recruited immediately, as the Human Resource Manager cannot handle the two jobs. • It is relevant to organize an awareness programme to all the employees about the Health and Safety Practices and the importance of the proper hygienic practices. Personal Protective Equipments should be supplied to the employees to avoid risks and accidents. • Proper duty roster should be introduced to avoid the stress for the workers who cover up for the absentees shifts.

...As we discussed in the class, I am very interested in human resource management. And from the cases, there are four methods of human resource management I was impressive and interested in. First, I really agree Ann Rhoades’s method of selecting staff. She emphasizes that she just looks for people without previous experience in relating field. Taking this way to identify employees who are the most likely to fit. I really like this ideal. Because people do not have the relevant experience, there is no stereotype in their job. Therefore, employees are better trained. In my previous experience, people who have relating work experienced are usually more arrogant than others. They always think they are right. It’s really bad in the teamwork. Second, I am interested in customized employment packages. Everyone concerns different things. Some people concern about current salary while some people worry about retirement. So why should every staff need to receive the same package? If employees receive the same package, it will not be able to stimulate them to work hard. Must let employees happy, let them know the company really care them, and they will be kind and work hard when they service for their customers. Third one is the new bonus sharing system, which new idea comes from Eva in the case of Organizational transformation in a Taiwanese company.

...Human Resource Management Roles Your Name Course Instructor Date University The people who work for any organization are known as human resources, often referred to as personnel. During the past decade, the term personnel has been changed to human resources when discussing employees since the combination of these two words better describes how important people are to any organization. The main role of the human resources manager is to ensure that the organization make the most of its workforce in a manner that will provide the organization with a competitive edge. This is recognized as a human resource strategy. This paper will discuss several of the human resources manager’s roles. The human resources manager holds the largest responsibility within the organization and must complete more duties than any other employee. The human resources manager must ensure that the required work and- or services are accomplished in a timely and efficient routine. When an employee does not come to work for whatever reason, the human resources manager must perform the tasks of that employee’s job or delegate the tasks to another employee who is able to fill in for the absent employee’s shift. All managers manage human resources. The human resources department’s role is to assist any manager who performs in the human resource functions. Many programs have...

...of employees work, this sector is considered the main driver of Malaysia’s economy. The Trade Union Movement The relationship between employers and employees in Malaysia is regulated by a number of laws which were introduced prior to independence (1957) and in the first decade immediately thereafter. The colonial economy prior to World War II (1939-45) was based on tin mining and rubber plantations. The need for labour in these two industries changed the human landscape of Malaysia (Malaya as it then was) for ever. The colonial government either allowed or actively encouraged the importation of labour from China and India, thus creating the multi-racial society which is Malaysia today. The wages of this growing group of employees were low and working conditions were mostly abysmal. Jomo and Todd explained the lack of governmental interference to improve the lot of workers by saying, ‘As a major employer 1 Maimunah Aminuddin (m_aminuddin@hotmail.com) taught industrial relations, employment law and human resource management for 34 years in Universiti Teknologi MARA, Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia. Employment Relations 305 itself, the government had a vested interest in keeping labour costs low.’2 In the late 1930s labour unrest was becoming a major concern for employers. A wave of strikes hit plantations in Selangor which were not only wide-spread but also were frightening to the plantation owners because of the militant behaviour of the......
