Week 4 Project
Write your introduction here. It should be 1 to 2 good paragraphs that introduce the reader to your topic and it should explain in detail what your paper will be discussing. Much of your introduction may be taken from the assignment itself (in your own words). Read the scenario to get a feel for what the paper is about and explain what your paper will be discussing. Remember, this document is just a template. You will want to review the assignment AND rubric for full details. Finally, please ask me any questions about this assignment.
Evaluate at least three trends or recent approaches in compensation that SEIIC should consider in its redesign effort, including the pros and cons of each.
Evaluate at least three trends or recent approaches in benefits that SEIIC should consider in its redesign effort, including the pros and cons of each.
Assess other intrinsic and extrinsic motivators that SEIIC should consider in its redesign effort, including pros and cons of those motivators.
Using your evaluation in the previous three sections (compensation, benefits, and intrinsic/extrinsic motivators), justify an action plan to develop and retain valuable performers in the organization.
List your reference here in APA format. The reference page must include all of the references you used, listed in proper APA format. Wikipedia does not qualify as an academic resource.
Note: You will be graded on the quality of your answers, the logic/organization of the report, your language skills, and your writing skills.
