Homework #2 Chapter 5 Discussion Questions 1. Labor shortage can affect selection and placement, training and career development, as well as compensation and benefits. Labor shortage can affect selection and placement in the sense that applicants could be selected regardless of the fact that they are not necessarily fit for the job, and could also be placed in areas they are not qualified for. Training and career development will sky rocket due to labor shortage, because the new and unqualified employees will need more training and development than those who are qualified. Compensation and benefits can be affected by labor shortage as well but in two ways, they will either be cut back because the employees are unqualified or increased in order to attract qualified employees from elsewhere, giving a competitive advantage. However, training and career development will likely be the most heavily impacted as companies try to educate the unqualified employees who are hired as a result of labor shortage. These groups (selection and placement, training and career development, compensation and benefits) by creating programs such as “internships” to avert labor shortage. 1. When recruiting people for jobs that entail international assignments, one should look in places like colleges and universities where a diverse group of younger, educated people would be located. Younger people would be more likely interested in the aspect of traveling, as they are at a point in their lives where they are ready to “leave the nest” and see the world. Travel will also be easier without a marriage/family to leave behind. Recruiting practices would differ here in the sense that one might use tactics that appeal to the younger generation. One may suggest the ideas of paid travel as well as tuition payment for further education. 2. When recruiting inside the workplace, strategies would include sending out emails and posting flyers inside of the company office or on the company website. When recruiting outside of the workplace, ads might be placed in particular areas where recruits are expected to be located and sending out actual “recruiters” to talk to potential applicants. A company may wish to switch from internal to external in order to gain some diversity and fresh ideas. A company may switch from external to internal in order to reduce the possibility of trainee failures and increase the chances of success, as an internal applicant will already have experience with the business practices of the company.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
