Mini-Case – Transfer of Training

Read the following mini case and answer the questions that follow:

Organizational Profile

Southern Credit Union operates in more than 10 medium-sized cities in a southeastern state. As a credit union, Southern is owned by their members who save and borrow money through the institution. A portion of the union’s profits is returned to members in various ways, including lower interest rates, lower fees and higher dividends on savings accounts. Southern’s front-line tellers provide routine banking services inside the credit union and at drive-through locations. Most front-line tellers are women, although the position has become more diversified recently. The New Accounts Department meets potential members to discuss the features of Southern’s savings and checking accounts. The Mortgage Services Department provides mortgage options for home loans. The Investment Services Department has financial advisors who meet with members to discuss alternative investment strategies and options for growing their money. Credit union members are a diverse group in terms of racial demographics, age and gender.

Key Issues

The president of Southern Credit Union, Tom Jenkins, is relatively new; in fact, there have been three different presidents over the last six years. Not surprisingly, camaraderie has been lacking among managers, employees and the ever-changing leadership team. After meeting with the board of directors and in anticipation of an upcoming audit from the National Credit Union Administration, Jenkins decides that Southern needs to revisit its sexual harassment policy and procedures and determine when the last training session was held. Jenkins meets with the HR director, Pamela Sanchez, and the training analyst, Heather Blackburn. They decide the sexual harassment policy is sufficient but realize that there has been no sexual harassment training in four years. Blackburn, who has been focusing on customer service training, is told by Jenkins to “make this happen by the end of next month.”

Training Staff

Heather Blackburn has been a training analyst for only five months. She graduated with a B.A. in communications 15 years ago; after graduation she worked as a bank teller at a regional bank. She moved to Southern Credit Union as a bank teller because the pay was higher and the credit union had a good regional reputation. Blackburn was a bank teller at Southern for eight years, then applied for an internal transfer to the training job because she liked working with people and thought the job would be interesting. She joined the local American Society of Training and Development (ASTD) chapter last month to learn about the training profession in general and specific training methods. She reports to the HR director, Pamela Sanchez.

Activities to Enhance Learning

Design of the Sexual Harassment Training

Jenkins’ request doesn’t give Blackburn much time to develop and conduct the sexual harassment training. She decides to train first-line supervisors, since they are most closely involved in the front-line employee interactions. She doesn’t have time to meet with anyone to get this training designed, so she sketches out a two-hour lecture. She wants to cover Southern’s sexual harassment policy, the complaint procedure, and some recent court cases (gathered from the Employment Law Information Network) as examples of quid pro quo versus hostile work environment harassment. She creates handouts for trainees and schedules training off-site for 50 Southern supervisors to minimize distractions from their branch locations. Three days before the training, Blackburn has all her lecture notes (in PowerPoint) prepared, handouts copied and the training room ready. She e-mails first-line supervisors about the mandatory training, tells them about the objectives of the training and gives them directions to the off-site training location.

The Training

As the supervisors enter the training room, they seem confused about the late notification of this training. As they talk among themselves, they wonder if one of the employees filed a sexual harassment complaint. Blackburn covers all the material she has prepared. She doesn’t get a chance to ask for questions at the end of the session, but tells the supervisors to e-mail her with any questions they have about the material and reinforces her willingness to ensure they understood the information. Blackburn feels good about her organization and preparedness, and feels like the two-hour lecture was successful. The supervisors leave quickly to get back to their branch locations; some have several hours to drive and much to handle when they return to their jobs.

Report on the Training

Blackburn happily reports back to Jenkins and Sanchez with her perceptions of how the first-line supervisor training went. Blackburn reiterates how she met Jenkins’ deadline, recounts the process she used to develop the training, and shows them the training materials and handouts. Blackburn plans to e-mail the supervisors in six weeks to remind them of key learning points and to see if they have any questions about the sexual harassment concepts, once they consider their own workplace situations. She will also ask them to rate their satisfaction with the training via a short e-mail survey. Jenkins is satisfied because he can tell the audit team that the training took place. The HR director, though, is quiet during the meeting; she wonders whether this effort was well executed and is concerned about the ultimate effectiveness of the training.

Activities to Enhance Learning

Read: Oscar Wilde, Scene from The Importance of Being Earnest (Act 1, Scene 1—Lady Bracknell Interviews Her Daughter’s Suitor)

Setting analysis 750 words: This assignment should focus on analyzing the importance of setting to an assigned work (drama/play). The analysis should have an introduction with a thesis, a body, and a separate conclusion. Paragraphs in the body should have clear topic sentences and the supporting sentences should offer specific examples, descriptions, etc. to prove the topic sentence. Specific lines and phrases from the work itself should be incorporated into the analysis. For example, why is the setting important in Trifles? A paper should provide specific details to prove how the setting is very impactful on the work.

Just a few suggestions for the paper:
1. Be sure that you have a thesis that states the importance of setting to the work.
2. Include specific details from the work that explain why the setting is a crucial aspect of the work.
3. VERY IMPORTANT: Do not retell the story.
4. Avoid using 1st and 2nd person pronouns in a literary analysis.
5. Include transitions between paragraphs.

6. Write a conclusion that summarizes the paper, includes NO new information, and ends with a strong sense of finality.

1.I think that there are many different ways research in the criminal justice field as a whole. I think especially for people who do not really understand what criminal justice is and they go off what social media tells them what police officers do, I think if those people took the time to actually see what police officers do on a daily basis instead of just look at or read only the bad things that happen, I think that that alone would help out the criminal justice field. There was definitely a time where there were ethical issues in criminal justice. I am talking about when the politicians were in control of law enforcement and they were able to use officers to push their agenda. Now days, this isn’t really a issue but I think that who ever is in charge could have power of pushing police policy in the direction that they wanted. Law enforcement is all about enforcing the laws that are put in place to keep the people that they protect out of harms way. I think that a way to conduct ethically sound research would be to really look at the sources, and not just pick and choose different what you want to see, and to not use bias opinions when doing research.

2.It is important to conduct research in the criminal justice field because it will help to improve the overall functions of various part in the criminal justice field. Moreover, research is very important to the development of criminal justice decision-making. Through well designed and implemented research, the criminal justice field can better explore the impact of policies, programs, and daily practices. Research can make policy makers know if their decisions or policies works effectively. Research can benefit the criminal justice field because it can help to reform policies and helped shape decision making that would have positive effect. Ethical issues related to criminal justice includes: the role of informed consent; the impact of the research design on outcome; and the necessity of confidentiality and immunity. One of the best way researchers can avoid and resolve ethical dilemmas when an ethically sound research is been conducted, is to know both what their ethical obligations are and what resources are available to them. Researchers can help themselves make ethical issues salient by reminding themselves of the basic underpinnings of research and professional ethics.

writing-a-home-exercise-program-for-female-client-with-de-quervian-s-disease-based-on-the-requirement-below

The first step in this project must be researching your client’s diagnosis which is (DeQuervian’s Disease (AKA Gamers thumb) . Your project should begin with a brief description of the condition. Where possible, this description should include Symptoms, Causes, Method of diagnosis, Prevalence and Prognosis. You will need a minimum of 3 references APA for this portion of the project.

Once you are familiar with your client’s diagnosis, you will create a HOME Exercise program for this client. This home program will focus on the client’s dominant (injured) right arm and include all joints and motions from the shoulder to the fingers. Each exercise should be focused on rehabilitation for the client that YOU were assigned. These exercises should be created to be performed in a person’s home using common household items. Please note that theraputty and theraband are not common household items.

  • For each exercise, you need to include 4 components.
    • Why you chose the exercise – what outcome are you hoping to achieve.
    • Which clinic exercise you are trying to replicate for the client in their home.
    • A picture or diagram of the exercise that you are asking the client to perform.
    • Step by step instructions that are clear and easy for the client to follow. Assume that your client has no medical knowledge but has performed similar exercises with you in the clinic.

** Note ** If an exercise is contraindicated for your client, please clearly explain why your client should not be performing this motion.

Try to be creative and OCCUPATION BASED. Please note that occupation-based does not mean that they are doing this occupation as part of their rehab but that they are working toward a return to full activity after their rehab.

For example, if your patient is a stay-at-home mother who spends her day cleaning the house and caring for children, your goal should be to return her to this occupation. The typical stay-at-home parent does not clean windows every day, so cleaning windows would not be a good way to strengthen her ulnar and radial deviation, however, an exercise that strengthens ulnar and radial deviation would be necessary to enable her to clean windows.

My client is 28 yrs old female who likes working out, hiking, biking and help her family with house chores

  • TEXTBOOK : Lab10 in 9th, Lab 12 in 8th
  • Objective : To determine the optimum moisture content at which a given soil type will become most dense and achieve its maximum dry unit weight
  • The degree of compaction of a soil is measured by its dry unit weight(γd). The dry unit weight of compaction increases as the moisture content increases until w=wopt. Beyond w=wopt, any increase in moisture content tends to reduce the dry unit weight.

Scope- the most important factor.

I believe scope is the most important of the triple constraints. Neither time nor cost can be determined without first having a scope of work. As mentioned in a blog from Team Clarizen, a cloud based collaborative work management firm, “Projects can’t begin until the scope is known” and scope “forms the basis for every decision a project manager will make on a job.” (Clarizen, 2017)

To ensure proper execution of the new hiring system at MTC, I would be sure to create a “Project Scope Statement”. According to Burek, a Project Scope Statement provides the documented basis for making all project decisions, directs the project effort, and communicates the project scope to management and other stakeholders. (Burek, 2006) Additionally, according to Burek, “Projects that do not have a project scope statement are plagued with scope creep issues”…since without it, project boundaries are not defined. (Burek, 2006)
