HRMT 386Assignment 1: Case Study 1Part 1Interoffice MemoDate:November 23, 2015To:Senior ManagementFrom:Heather Boissoin, HR PractitionerSubject:Proposal – HR Planning and RecruitmentBackgroundEach year we hire approximately 25 employees to entry-level positions. Of those 25, 14 will take maternity leave within three years of hire. This necessitates the hiring and training of replacement employees, which becomes disruptive and unproductive. Development of a retention strategy is key to ensuring our corporate goals and objectives are met. This proposal will broaden our ability to respond to gaps in service due to maternity leaves, vacation, and secondments. Our plans address the concerns regarding the cost and effort associated with accommodating maternity leaves, while supporting corporate goals and objectives. The strategy provides an approach to retaining and developing employees regardless of age or gender. The strategy has several components, which focus developing leaders who feel valued, supported and inspired. The Total Rewards proposal is comprised of Compensation, Benefits, Work/life balance, Performance and Recognition, and Development and Career Opportunities.1.Compensation Competitive and Attractive RemunerationCreate a new salary grade, which will be used to promote the high achieving employees within the first 12 – 24 months of employment. The new position will be offered as a promotion to high achievers as a retention strategy. 2.BenefitsFlexible Health PlanAn Employee Spending Account will be initiated this year. Employees can decide which health care services are important to them and can allocate money from their spending account towards those services.Enhanced Maternity Leave Program

The employee receives a top up to 100% of their salary for 32 weeks once they return to regular duties. 3.Work/life BalanceFlexible Work OptionsCreating a flexible workplace is a key ingredient to work and life balance.
