Identify the four key issues or potential problems Doris is likely to face as HR Director
Written Assignment 2
This assignment incorporates the course outcomes and concepts covered for Weeks 3-6.
Doris Washington recently assumed her new position as HR Director at the XYZ Company, a software development firm with approximately 350 employees. Her staff includes a seasoned generalist as well as a benefits clerk. During her first 90 days on the job, Doris has noted the following issues that seem to be embedded in XYZ's culture: 1) managers create their own interview questions; 2) for some employees, their compensation is simply determined by managers, not based on training, experience, geographic region, and so on; and, 3) the company seems to draw new employees from only two sources, one is the university from which the President of the company graduated.
While Doris has been contemplating these trends, the CEO has asked her to attend a strategy planning meeting about opening the company's first location on in Toronto, Canada in approximately nine months. She needs to provide a recommendation to the CEO that can be used appropriately.
Instructions:
1. Identify the four key issues or potential problems Doris is likely to face as HR Director.
2. Select two of these potential problems and address the following questions:
  • What factors make these difficult problems or challenges; what are some of the difficulties she needs to deal with?
  • What are some of the complexities of these issues?
  • Why are these concerns the most important problems to consider?
3. Provide at least two alternatives Doris might consider in dealing with each of these two issues/problems that you selected.
4. Identify a “best solution” for each of these two issues/problems that you selected.
5. Support your desired outcomes with a minimum of three outside scholarly sources. (academic journals, industry or business magazines, or association Web sites)

California's Proposition 13
Write a Response Comment 1

2)      From what you can see from the chart on page 54, the property tax could be disliked for the government's use of it.  People can look at the numbers and become frustrated that so much of the government's revenue is coming from the property tax. Compared to all of the other sources of government revenue, the property tax is the major source.  It is probably unpopular also because of the irregularity of the tax and the ability for it to shift so quickly, like when neighbor sales their house and the tax is adjusted due to the value they sold their house at.  It is unfair. Proposition 13 takes care of that though.

3)      The biggest benefit the property tax has on local government is to provide a source of revenue that is independent of the state government's finances or the federal government's benevolence. It is also, to some degree, provides the local government with a small aspect of sovereignty, as it is up to the local government to determine the amount of revenue it collects because local governments assess property and local governments bill property owners. This localized revenue stream allows local governments to fund services the local population utilizes, which is of benefit for other members of the public at opposite sides of the state who may not use local services funded by the property tax. A further benefit to local government arising from the property tax is to place local officials in charge of certain pots of money that are not dependent on grants, thus allowing local officials a certain degree of decision-making autonomy that does not come with funds coming from state or federal sources.
