Human Resource Management: Training Methods

 

Instructions: Read the Grand View Grocers Corporation case.

 

Grand View Grocers Corporation, headquartered in Clewiston, Florida, is among the nation’s top grocery chain companies, with over $34 billion in revenue. It operates and owns approximately 1,500 grocery stores in 10 states and will be expanding operatons to Washington, D.C. in the near future.

 

Grand View Grocer’s Corporation’s operating strategy distinguishes it from other grocery chain companies. Each grocery store has a Training and Development Methods manager that allows decisions to be made locally, close to the client. This also makes Grand View Grocer Corporation’s service more responsive, reliable, and empathetic to its customers.

 

Recently, Grand View Grocers Corporation has identified a that there is an increase in the annual turnover rate for cashiers nationwide.  The increase was found in newly hired cashiers, so it was determined that on-the-job training was ineffective.

 

Under the direction of the store manager, cashiers perform a variety of tasks, including:

 

  • Receive payment by cash, check, credit cards, vouchers, or automatic debits.
  • Issue receipts, refunds, credits, or change due to customers.
  • Count money in cash drawers at the beginning of shifts to ensure that amounts are correct and that there is adequate change.
  • Greet customers entering establishments.
  • Maintain clean and orderly checkout areas.
  • Establish or identify prices of goods, services or admission, and tabulate bills using calculators, cash registers, or optical price scanners.
  • Issue cashier’s checks, money orders, mailing stamps, and redeem food stamps and coupons.
  • Resolve customer complaints.
  • Answer customers’ questions, and provide information on procedures or policies.
  • Cash checks for customers.
  • Weigh items sold by weight in order to determine prices.
  • Calculate total payments received during a time period, and reconcile this with total sales.
  • Compute and record totals of transactions.
  • Sell lotto tickets and other items to customers.
  • Keep periodic balance sheets of amounts and numbers of transactions.
  • Bag, box, wrap, or gift-wrap merchandise, when needed.
  • Sort, count, and wrap currency and coins.
  • Process returns and exchanges.
  • Request information or assistance using paging systems.
  • Stock shelves, and mark prices on shelves and items, when needed.
  • Compile and maintain non-monetary reports and records.

 

Essential cashier functions include the following:

  • Perform for or Working Directly with the Public — Performing for people or dealing directly with the public. This includes serving customers in restaurants and stores, and receiving clients or guests.
  • Establish and Maintain Interpersonal Relationships — Developing constructive and cooperative working relationships with others, and maintaining them over time.
  • Get Information — Observing, receiving, and otherwise obtaining information from all relevant sources.
  • Identify Objects, Actions, and Events — Identifying information by categorizing, estimating, recognizing differences or similarities, and detecting changes in circumstances or events.
  • Process Information — Compiling, coding, categorizing, calculating, tabulating, auditing, or verifying information or data.

 

Describe in 350- to 525- words the training method or combination of training methods that you would recommend for training.

 

 

 

 

Justify in 350- to 525- words your choice of method(s).

Life Expectancy: What Does It Take to Live a Long Life?

 

According to the CDC, the current average life expectancy is 78.7 years old. Although there are some who live much longer, even up to 120 years. In your opinion, what factors contribute to those who live well beyond the average age? Consider lifelong healthcare regiments, attitudes, and behaviors. Are these factors in agreement with what psychologists find to be common in centenarians? Support your reasoning with information from the text and other course materials.

 

 

 

Socioemotional Selectivity Theory

 

Psychologists claim that those in late adulthood  are more selective about the company they keep because they are less willing to invest in relationships with emotional risk and they place a higher value on emotional satisfaction. Do you feel this a valuable way to approach social relationships? Why or why not? Could this approach be useful in other periods of development? If so, how? Support your reasoning with information from the text and other course materials.

Maths and Statistics Calculations

Maths, physics and statistics calculations

Starting in late 2007, the world’s advanced economies slumped into recession, often referred to as the Global Financial Crisis (GFC).  Canada joined the US, UK and much of Europe in watching real GDP fall for at least two quarters.

Part A.  Gathering, preparing and presenting data (3 points)

 

To collect data on the recent recession for Canada, carry out the following instructions:

  1. Go to Statistics Canada’s website
  2. Find National Gross Domestic Product, expenditure-based, Canada, quarterly (36-10-0104-01)
  3. Click Add/Remove Data tab
  4. Select “Chained (2012) dollars”, “Seasonally adjusted at annual rates”, Retrieve data for the following Estimates
  5. GDP at market prices
  6. Household Final Consumption Expenditure (Consumption)
  7. General Governments Final Consumption Expenditure PLUS General Governments Gross Fixed Capital Formation (Government). You will have to prepare the summed data yourself.  Adding these will provide an approximation that is comparable to US data.
  8. Business Gross Fixed Capital Formation (Investment)
  9. Exports of goods and services (Exports)
  10. Imports of goods and services (Imports)
  11. Place the data in a spreadsheet (Excel or similar)
  12. Using formulas, construct an index of the data with 2007Q4 as the base time period (all series should equal 100 in 2007Q4). Your index should start in 2006Q1 and end in 2019Q4.
  13. Repeat for: GDP, Consumption, Government, Investment, Exports, Imports
  14. Plot a line chart for each index

 

To collect data on the recent recession for the USA, carry out the following instructions:

  1. Go to the US Bureau of Economic Analysis Interactive Data site
  2. Under Tools, Select “Interactive Data”, then “National Data”, then “GDP & Personal Income” then “Begin using…”
  3. Under “Domestic Product and Income”, find the table for “Real Gross Domestic Product (A) (Q)” – table 1.1.6
  4. Under Options, select quarterly data, starting in 2006Q1 and ending in 2020Q1
  5. Download the data into a spreadsheet (Excel or similar)
  6. GDP at market prices
  7. Personal Consumption Expenditures (Consumption)
  8. Governments Consumption Expenditures and Gross Investment (Government)
  9. Gross Private Domestic Investment (Investment)
  10. Exports
  11. Imports
  12. Using formulas, construct an index of the data with 2007Q4 as the base time period (all series should equal 100 in 2007Q4). Your index should start in 2006Q1 and end in 2020Q1
  13. Repeat for: GDP, Consumption, Government, Investment, Exports, Imports
  14. Plot a line chart for each index

 

With these examples and the charts you constructed, you should have 12 charts.  All charts should be properly labelled (title, axis labels, scales).  Set your vertical axis scales and plot area to ensure a balance of comparability across charts against the ability to see variations in the data.

 

Insert the charts into a single document and then present your analysis in Part B.

 

 

 

 

Part B.  Analyzing the data (2 points)

 

Using the 12 charts you prepared in Part A, compare the 2008-09 recession in Canada and the US.  Which experienced the most severe recession?  Which had the fastest recovery?  What particular variables explain the differences in depth and recovery for each recession?  Explain your answer using the evidence from the charts.  You should research other published analysis of the recession of 2007-2008 (with citations) to help add context to your analysis.

The COVID-19 pandemic has initiated a large global recession.  Using research from published sources such as the International Monetary Fund, describe how large the COVID-19 recession is expected to be.  Based on your research, do you believe the COVID-19 recession will be more severe than the one experienced during the Global Financial Crisis?

 

Guidelines for submission

Your answers should be submitted on the Brightspace site – posted by the beginning of class on the due date.  Your answer should be submitted in ONE DOCUMENT (PDF, Google Docs or Microsoft Word).

 

There should be 12 charts.  Charts should be at least 3 inches tall by 5 inches wide.  Under each chart, you should include a source reference, for example:

Statistics Canada.  Table  36-10-0104-01   Gross domestic product, expenditure-based, Canada, quarterly (x 1,000,000), retrieved on May 9, 2019.

Background

An information asset is a body of information that is defined and managed as a standalone, single unit that can be shared and exploited to the organization’s benefit. It is referred to as an asset because it has financial value to the organization. Enterprise- wide information assets that are common to large health care organizations include billing systems, EHR/EMR, master patient index, clinical automation systems, patient portals, personal health records, telemedicine, health information exchange (HIE), clinical applications (lab, pharmacy), etc.

The enterprise data warehouse (EDW) is a repository of high value data from different information assets and corporate systems/applications. The data contained in an EDW can be integrated for many strategic uses across the enterprise. Strategic objectives might include activities and initiatives designed to improve quality, safety, cost, productivity, etc.

To complete Part 4, conduct research into the topic of data warehousing in health care organizations and then answer the following:

  1. List the benefits of an EDW to a health care organization.
  2. Prepare a strategic objective and explain how it could be facilitated through use of a data warehouse.
  3. Select two (2) information assets from the list above. Through a data warehouse, analyze and demonstrate how data from those two assets could be used to accomplish the identified strategic objective.

 Corporate and Financial Risk Analysis

 Corporate and Financial Risk Analysis

The structure of the dissertation should be

 

Very brief introduction

 

10 Sections each concentrating on one question

 

Very brief summary

 

References (if applicable, optional)

 

  • Give a general introduction on the topics of Financial Risk Analysis skills learnt in this module. You need to choose one or two topic(s) for deeper discussion to include some additional literature reading, application examples and explain what you have gained the most by focusing on the topic(s).

 

  • Carry out independent research on Altman’s Z-score as an investment value indicator — What is involved, how many types there are, how the scores are calculated, why it can be used as a value indicator. Use financial data provided by Yahoo Finance or Thomson Reuters on a few companies of your selection to cover all cases. Also, discuss the advantages and disadvantages of using such indicators for risk analysis purposes.

 

  • There was a big housing bull market around the world over the last 30 years, you need to make some data backed investigation on the possible reasons for this. It is up to you to decide what data should be used in your study. You must involve quantified discussion, using some of the investigation methods such as regression analysis taught in this module. The historical UK house price data can be obtained from, for example,

http://www.nationwide.co.uk/about/house-price-index/download-data

 

  • Design a retail business whose profit depends on a number of factors that can fluctuate randomly according some distributions and run a number of simulations on the model and plot the profit distribution histogram, and fit the histogram using different probability distributions as you see fit. Explain how you made your assumptions and the subsequent consequences on the outcome.

 

  • Study the definition of hedge funds, look at the the investment strategies of hedge funds. Analyse the pros and cons of using hedge funds as an investment tool as you see them.

 

  • Take out one of the strategies you discussed in 5) for detailed study. Must use asset/option prices from the real world in your illustration. The results must be in the form of price performance, in figures or graphs, using at least one statistical tools taught in the module.

 

  • In the module we have described how to make investment decisions, in particular, we mentioned “Qualitative management screening: decide which projects, assets, initiatives or strategies are available, the list should meet management’s agenda. Most valuable insight is created at this stage”. Make a case study and explain the difficulties when we analysis financial risks with more than one factors.

 

  • Study the definition of the following risk functions and how they are computed using MATLAB with concrete examples:
  • VaR
  • Expected Tail loss
  • Omega
  • Drawdown

Give your opinion on the pros and cons of using these risk measures.

 

  • Carry out independent research on the coherence definition for risk functions, use concrete example to illustrate why coherence and incoherence are needed in different circumstances. Take a couple of risk functions to verify, using numerical examples, if they are coherent or incoherent.

 

  • Select 20 different assets which you can download historical price data, explain the reason for selection. Construct a 20 variable VaR function, minimize it using MATLAB Optimization App. Choose sub-time intervals to compare the performance of thus formed portfolio against an equal-weight ETF using these 20 assets.

 

Remarks:

  • There is no limit on the number of words but should avoid over/under explanation, figures and data presentation tables are more powerful tools in risk analysis.
  • Programs in EXCEL, MATLAB can be used but must be displayed clearly.
