5 7 Page Management And Employee Satisfaction

Recommend a 5–7 page HR management plan to senior leadership that addresses both short- and long-term tactics for addressing low employee satisfaction.

Manager and staff roles, as well as legal concerns, procedures, and promotions from within the organization, are all related considerations in the recruitment, selection, and retention processes in HR management. In addition, the nature of compensation systems, the value of job worth, the importance of motivation, and the principles of sound succession planning and promotion need to be considered; all play into management and employee satisfaction.


Pretend you are an HR manager in a health care organization, and it has come to your attention from a variety of sources that morale and employee satisfaction are on the decline in one of your company’s organizational units. Employees have been working 50 percent longer shifts for several months to address an increase in patient demand, and you suspect it is beginning to take its toll. You are considering the issue and how to address it.


Complete the following two parts of this assessment based on your research and understanding of methods for addressing the scenario described above.

Part 1: Problem Identification

Suggest and support three ways in which you would determine the nature and extent of the problem and its source. What indicators would you examine?

Part 2: Management Plan

For the purposes of this assessment, assume that it has been determined that the dip in employee satisfaction is indeed due to long hours, uneven scheduling practices, and no clear end in sight.

Recommend an employee-centered plan that aligns the needs of the organization with management strategies that address the issue (based on your stated assumptions regarding the specific nature of the problem). In your plan:

  • Explain which core HR function is the most critical to the success of your plan.
  • Identify the key stakeholders related to this issue, citing relevant sources to support your choice.
    • Discuss the role and contribution of stakeholders in determining the nature of the issue and developing a plan for its resolution.
    • Discuss how you would incorporate these stakeholders into your plan. For example, discuss who should be included in the development of the plan, such as nurses, doctors, as well as interested community members.
  • Include short-term tactics to address the acute aspects of the problem.
  • Include long-term strategy to permanently address the problem.

Additional Requirements

Your assessment should meet the following requirements:

  • Written communication: Your assessment artifacts should be professionally written in a form and style appropriate for the various stakeholders. Consider the purpose of the document, its intended use, and the setting in which your plan will be presented.
  • APA format: Resources and citations are formatted according to APA style and formatting standards.
  • Number of resources: Include a minimum of five resources.
  • Page length: 5–7 pages.
