Retention and Separation

[ad_1]

Prepare a three-page memo analyzing best practices in approaches and procedures addressing retention and separation for either Java Corp or an organization of your choice.

Introduction

Once the best possible employees have been hired, it is important for the organization to do what it can to retain its top talent and manage its turnover to continue supporting organizational goals.

Preparation

Research the topics of retention and separation for either Java Corp or an organization of your choice. A minimum of two resources are required to support your work.

Scenario

For this assessment, choose either option 1 or 2. You do not need to do both. You will apply one of these scenarios in the instructions below. Both options will be graded using the same scoring guide.

Option 1

You are the new HR manager for Java Corp, a domestic cold coffee and tea company. Java Corp has had trouble retaining valuable employees, and the termination of a number of employees for performance and conduct has resulted in lawsuits. Prepare a memo to organizational management, analyzing best practices in approaches and procedures addressing each of these issues.

Option 2

Choose an organization to use for this assessment that has faced litigation claims by employees who feel they were unfairly terminated or has had a large number of employees quit in a short period of time. Prepare a memo to organizational management, analyzing best practices in approaches and procedures addressing each of these issues.

Your organization must be researchable, as you will need to gather and analyze information to complete the assessment. You may use the same organization you selected for previous assessments. If you choose the organization where you are currently employed, please keep in mind that the analysis you make must be based on facts that can be documented rather than your personal opinion as an employee.

Research the retention and separation function of the chosen organization. Contact your faculty if you have questions.
