Prepare a 3-4 page analysis considering several possible courses of action that could be used to address issues within a company. You will state how and why you would take each course of action, or if you would not take a specific action, explain why not.
This assessment examines how to assess the effectiveness of both internal and external candidates for the jobs for which you are recruiting. There are many views of these two areas of selection and many accurately describe possible outcomes for the organization. Organizational employees, first-line supervisors, and other stakeholders see the value in supporting promotion from within. It saves resources in training, reinforces current employee commitment, and offers the powerful promise of a long-term professional future for those working in the organization.  
However, organizations with a majority of long-term employees often suffer from a groupthink condition that can do great harm. From the NASA Space Shuttle Columbia disaster in 2002 to the banking failure of 2008, groupthink has the ability to set organizations on a destructive path. One of the outcomes of groupthink is organizational failure. The other consequence is the tendency to become insular, which comes from hiring and promoting people who think more alike than different. Anyone involved in accreditation can tell you that accrediting agencies, whether they are government or private, strongly discourage hiring a school’s own graduates. Accrediting agencies allow only a very small percentage of homegrown faculty members in any school. One of the things they are trying to encourage is the diversity of thought and professional background. These are essential components of organizational success; their absence can do a great deal of damage in organizational decision-making as well as product development. 
Every individual position that becomes vacant or is new to the organization must be evaluated to determine whether it should be advertised internally only or both internally and externally. 
Assessment Introduction
For this assessment, imagine that you are the Vice President of Human Resources (VP of HR) for CapraTek. The Western sales division has had more turnover than any other part of the company. Since 2010, there have been six different sets of directors and deputy directors for the organization. In three years, the Western sales division has lost 80% of its clients. The other sales division has only lost 2% of its clients. The marketing-science office at the corporate level has been deeply involved in redesigning product development and sales processes, which have become more complicated. It has also become harder for customers to qualify for financing. These actions, while presented as quality efforts, have not led to positive outcomes. Over time, these conditions have raised prices above all competitors. While the organization’s products are of great quality, some products could be over-engineered and possibly too taste specific.
Aside from the low morale, the level of turnover at the senior ranks of the division has done harm to employees at all levels of the division. Frontline sales professionals, supervisors, support staff, support leaders, middle managers, and stakeholders are confused about quality standards and approval stages. The CapraTek CEO and COO have consistently selected sales directors and deputy directors from outside the organization, but all were soon terminated for poor performance. The next set of directors was selected internally from the sales professionals, and they were terminated after about 18 months. Additionally, the job description for this position has been studied and refined multiple times; this is not the issue or answer for this assessment.
Your Challenge
As the VP of HR, consider the following actions and for each one:
Describe whether you would execute this action.
If you would execute this action, explain how and why.
If you would not execute this action, explain why not.
Actions to Consider
Seek consulting services: Seek consulting services from a professional search firm that will take the place of the company human resources staff performing the recruiting effort. The private firm will perform the search for candidates and conduct pre-assessments and interviews before the final candidates are presented to the company. Provide evidence as to why this would be a good decision.
Hire from within: Continue to hire candidates from within the organization using the current process of allowing HR and the CEO and COO to make the selections. Provide evidence-based rationale to support your decision.
Conduct an internal Search: Begin an intense internal search within CapraTek for director and deputy director positions to be run by HR, leading to a robust list of candidates for consideration. Describe why or why you would not take this course of action.
Assessment Instructions
Prepare a 3–4 page analysis that states how and why you would take each course of action, or if you would not take a specific action, explain why not. All three Actions to Consider must be addressed. Along with your recommendations, include the following:
Analyze options available for addressing issues with employee turnover, product development and the sales process, rise in product prices, and operational morale.
Weigh the pros and cons of taking each action.
Determine whether you would take each action.
Explain how available options could be executed.
Explain briefly what steps you would take to accomplish any of the actions you would choose to take.
Provide the rationale for each decision to either take or not take a course of action.
Describe key factors that influenced your decision.
Include material from your references to support your conclusions.
Review the HR Challenge: Selecting the Right Candidate (Internal – External) Scoring Guide to see the criteria by which your assessment will be evaluated. Before submitting your assessment for evaluation, review your publish in SafeAssign to check your use of source material.
Submission Requirements
The deliverable for this assessment applies professional skills in Human Resources Management (HRM) to workplace situations which you will likely encounter in your day to day work in HRM.

The cover sheet should include your name, the course number, assessment title, and date. No other information is required on this page.
Each of the three Actions to Consider should be addressed.
The resource pages (reference list) should be the last page or pages.
Organization: Make sure that your assessment writing is well-organized, using headings and subheadings to organize content for the reader.
Font and font size: Times New Roman, 12-point.
Resources: Use at least two scholarly or academic sources.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
