According to the text (Martacchio, 2013) discusses internal compensation programs systems that allows companies to structure their pay scales and to determine how they will recruit people to fit the positions they are hiring for. It also states that "HR professionals create internally consistent job structures through two processes- job analysis followed by job evaluation" (p. 120). Some of the challenges companies could face are past inconsistent systems that did not work, inconsistent job analyses, and former job duties that were not aligned with job descriptions, just to name a few. All of these things could present conflicts and issues for the companies as they strive to complete company goals.
I think companies’ market competitiveness is most important for the company’s competitive advantage. If a company is not competitive with the current mart it could face layoffs due to lack of work or it may even have to outsource labor and materials for lower financial challenges it may be faced with. Some pros and cons could be companies with cheaper benefits or even companies that are folding due to loss or lack of business; and of course our economy and its recession. As I see it, all of these are issues and can affect both the internal consistencies and market competitiveness. Currently the organization I am employed by has outsources our benefits, payroll and a few other essential benefits because of our budget and lack of federal funding.
For companies performance management to be effective there should be a evaluation tool in place to properly measure employees performances. As an example, my own company has an evaluation tool in place which has not been very effective in the past and now I as a supervisor have to deal with unhappy employees because of past evaluation ratings. After completing the evaluations under my supervision, I had many employees go over my…...

Captain Kirk’s Transporter Accident

... However, the more appropriate question would be to ask, what makes him the same person? The answer is his consciousness (Locke 362). Albeit not existing a period of time, if after the accident, we are talking about the same consciousness of Capt. Kirk, which has the same memories and identical personality of the consciousness before the accident took place, then by Locke’s criteria, he is the same person. Locke also makes a point that the same consciousness can exist in different bodies at different times. Converse to Locke’s argument, Bertrand Russell aims to dispel the notion that the consciousness or soul of a man exists after death or discontinuity. He argues that matter is constantly changing through bodily mechanisms such as nutriment and wastage. Because of this phenomenon, our mind (or what Locke may regard as consciousness) is subject to the changes and limitations of our body. Instead, he suggests that “the mental continuity of a person is a continuity of habit and memory” (Russell 377). These habits manifest via mental occurrences which occurred in the past but are now “remembered and are regarded as part of the person who now recollects them” (Russell 377). In short, our habits and normative occurrences shape our existence as man and are a product of our brain structure. If we are to believe in a person surviving after death, we must consider that the memories and habits of this person would “continue to be exhibited in a new set of occurrences” (Russell......

Andrew Carnegie

...journalistic ambition was born which he would spend the remainder of his life attempting to satisfy. (1) An American possessed of nineteenth century grandeur, he was yet a man of contradictions. The wealthiest human being of his time, he was convinced of the merits of poverty in developing character. His vast wealth, produced by the sweat of "the toilers of Pittsburgh," he returned to the city he loved, to America, to Scotland, to England and to the world. Not a religionist, he yet spoke in spiritual terms when expressing what he hoped his benefactions would accomplish in the world and in the lives of those very toilers whose labor had produced his wealth: "Man does not live by bread alone." I have known millionaires starving for lack of the nutriment which alone can sustain all that is human in man, and I know workmen, and many so-called poor men, who revel in luxuries beyond the power of those millionaires to reach. It is the mind that makes the body rich. There is no class so pitiably wretched as that which possesses money and nothing else. Money can only be the useful drudge of things immeasurably higher than itself. Exalted beyond this, as it sometimes is, it remains Caliban still and still plays the beast. My aspirations take a higher flight. Mine be it to have contributed to the enlightenment and the joys of the mind, to the things of the spirit, to all that tends to bring into the lives of the toilers of Pittsburgh sweetness and light. I hold this the noblest......

The Right to Cannibalism

...fear of a miscarriage. If the child is aborted the mother will be in deeper poverty. The maintenance of the infant will be hard on the mother mentally. She will not be able to receive any work to support her livelihood. The streets will be crowded with mothers followed by three or four children, all in rags, begging for food and money. Poverty in Ireland will have mothers raising children who become thieves by the age of six because of no food. Swift says “That a boy or a girl before twelve years old, is no saleable commodity…they will not yield above three pounds.” Mothers who already have several children do not receive any financial support from the children or government. After selling the children the mothers can purchase rags and nutriments that went up four times the value. Children will no longer be probationers because of less stealing. Abortions will increase a financial burden on Ireland. By the government paying cost for surgery of aborting the child it will decrease the welfare going into families’ households. Abortion can also rupture the mother’s uterus causing bleeding and infections which lead to infertility. When the mother takes the chance of losing fertility her consequence results in the husband leaving or the woman’s marital status remaining single. Parents who live in poverty can sell their children to reduce financial burden. The financial cost of preserving a human life is very high. Money cannot be available to the mothers when their and cattle has......

Seamus Heaney

...adulthood which he used when describing the rural labourers and their tasks. Heaney tries to make the reader aware of the five senses throughout his poetry; this includes touch, smell, hear, sight and taste. He often used to imitate his poetry to the ‘Troubles’ that occurred during his childhood; this was when there were political struggles in the Northern Ireland. Heaney expresses the Irish troubles into a bigger historical frame by taking on the general human circumstances; he uses language to interpret and create an image of events that he still remembered, this includes: childhood, farm life, politics and culture of Northern Ireland, other poets past and present. Heaney examines the history’s inherited structures, a rhetorical weapon and nutriment of character, changes in the country and cultural occasions. Heaney uses words such as ‘spirit’ and ‘pure’ to create a new perspective and a new mood; he explores humanism, politics and nature. Poetry is reflected between a need for creative freedom and a pressure to express the sense of social commitment that is felt by the poet as a citizen....

Nutriment Case

...1. What are some strategic considerations in establishing a pay structure for Nutriment? 2. Should Jack suggest a pay policy to lead, lag, or match the market? Explain your recommendations in terms of internal and external equity issues and why? 3. How can the company offer the right recruitment package to new hires without alienating the current work force, but attain the desired internal culture for today and tomorrow? When properly designed, compensation systems promote desirable employee behaviors, which are instrumental to the successful implementation of business strategies. In the Nutriments company case, the manager would have to improvise and prepare a complete pay structure that is formatted to the needs of each job description provided. The management also has to look into the demand of the specific position. As a result, good fit, or alignment, between an organizations business strategy and its compensation systems should lead to improved organizational effectiveness. To establish a complete compensation package, Nutriment’s HR management consultant, Jack Stewart, needs to start off with the strategic analysis. This would help show the organization’s strategic plan towards its vision and mission and allow the organization to set the path for its compensation strategy. Compensation systems in organizations in the high-technology industry are distinct from those in the other industries and the differences are related to the degree to which firms are......

...starting-point of the branch, but at the same time it is in a central position. Hence it is either this that is cut off, or into this that the new shoot is inserted, when we wish either a new branch or a new root to spring from it; which proves that the point of origin in growth is intermediate between stem and root. Likewise in sanguineous animals the heart is the first organ developed; this is evident from what has been observed in those cases where observation of their growth is possible. Hence in bloodless animals also what corresponds to the heart must develop first. We have already asserted in our treatise on The Parts of Animals that it is from the heart that the veins issue, and that in sanguineous animals the blood is the final nutriment from which the members are formed. Hence it is clear that there is one function in nutrition which the mouth has the faculty of performing, and a different one appertaining to the stomach. But it is the heart that has supreme control, exercising an additional and completing function. Hence in sanguineous animals the source both of the sensitive and of the nutritive soul must be in the heart, for the functions relative to nutrition exercised by the other parts are ancillary to the activity of the heart. It is the part of the dominating organ to achieve the final result, as of the physician's efforts to be directed towards health, and not to be occupied with subordinate offices. Certainly, however, all saguineous animals have the......

The Differences Between Mammals

...Difference between mammal groups is their gestation cycle. In fact, if marsupials and placental mammals carry their babies in the womb, monotremes do not. Instead, monotremes make offspring by laying eggs. Those eggs are small and have a hard shell. A monotreme mother usually lays one to three eggs, which are placed in her pouch. The eggs are incubated and hatched outside of the mother’s body just like birds’ eggs. The incubation stage takes place for 12days and after, the babies break the eggs using a milk tooth. On the other hand, marsupials have a short gestation period, which varies from 8 to 43 days. Their gestation period is so short because they have a yolk-type placenta. This type of placenta isolates the embryo, so they do not receive nutriments from the mother. To put it in another way, the embryo does not get any food while being in the womb. At birth, a marsupial is a helpless embryo that will continue to develop in his mother pouch for weeks or even months. Finally, placental mammals, unlike marsupials, have long gestation period. This is so because their developing embryo is nourished using the mother blood supply. This feature leads placental mammals to give birth to a fully developed embryo. Thus, marsupials and placental mammals diverge by their gestation length. Another important difference among mammals is the way they feed their babies. Mammals are known for feeding them with milk, and this process is called lactation. To begin, monotremes have......

Breast Feed

...breastfeeding. Infants who are exclusively breastfed for the first six months, without any formula tend to have fewer respiratory illnesses, ear infection and bouts of diarrhea. These infants also have fewer trips to the doctor and hospitalizations. Breastfeeding also results in higher IQ scores in some studies. The physical touch, closeness, skin-to-skin touch and eye contact, helps infants to bond with the mother and feel secure. Breastfeeding also linked to health weight gain in infants and fight childhood obesity. As per American Academy of Pediatrics, sudden infant death syndrome, risk of diabetes, obesity and certain cancers can be prevented by breastfeeding. Educating the new mother regarding breastfeeding is imperative, to make sure proper nutriment of the infant. Breastfeeding education starts with finding out the mother’s current knowledge and perception towards breastfeeding. Once finding out the mother perception and knowledge about breastfeeding. After educating the mother regarding benefits of breast feeding to infants. Nurses should first have to address the most common concerns of new mothers like: * Weight gain – Breastfeeding burns extra calories and helps lose pregnancy weight faster. It releases the hormone oxytocin, which helps return uterus to its original size and reduces uterine bleeding. * Expenses – Breastfeeding can help save money by not needing to buy formula, rubber nipples and other formula related things. * Sore nipples – It is normal to have......

Five Agregates

...(King 1989, 158). And its tentacles are named as five aggregates. Finally, in order to obtain the wisdom that can have a clear and accurate insight into the real nature of the aggregates, which is essential for the removal of clinging, we should have a deep understanding of the five aggregates as basis. And in this essay discussing the Buddhist analysis of human life, it will first introduce the five aggregates focusing on its nature, different kinds of components and typical forms. Then it will analyze the internal cooperation and relationship of the five aggregates in four perspectives. In addition, it will analyze the five aggregates in terms of the personality. Finally, it will illustrate how to sustain the sentient life when the four nutriments of life are needed. 1. The Five Aggregates Dating back to the origination, the five aggregates are named pañcakkhandha in Pali and Pañcaskhandha in Sanskrit. Then in the following part, this essay will discuss the five aggregates separately according to the contains and typical forms. As the only physical aggregate element, Aggregate of Matter contains and comprises the Four Great Elements including solidity, fluidity, heat and motion or vibration. And the most typical ones of them is the earth, water, fire and wind. In reality, every material object is made up of those Four Great Elements. Moreover, Aggregate of Matter also contains the derivatives of the Four Great Element, which are called the material sense-organs. The......
