Final Project: HR Strategic Plan
Key Characteristics of Current Human Resources:
The current Human Resource Department consists of a manager or director, an assistant manager, four specialists, two generalists, two administrative assistants, and five office associates. Each of the four specialists are in charge of one human resource function: Employment and Recruitment, Employee Benefits and Compensation, Employee Training and Development, and Employee Relations, There are two generalists who service all four functions, the two administrative assistants provide support to the mangers, specialists, and generalists; they also supervise the four office assistants. The manager has a master’s degree in Human Resource Management and 15 years experience in employment, recruitments, benefits, training and employment relations. The assistant manager has a bachelor’s degree in Human Resource Administration and will complete the master’s degree within six months and has experience in heath care administration. The specialists each have a bachelor’s Degree in human Resource management and certification in their field from the human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI). They have at least 8 years of experience. The generalists either have a bachelor’s degree in human resources. The administrative assistants and office associates are attending college part time. In total, there are 15 employees in human Resource Department. Human Resource Needs for Proposal:
I want to establish a new department: a specialist in labor relations. No staff member will be replaced. I would prefer to hive a person with specific qualifications and training that generalists do not have. Even if a hospital is now non-union, the employees may vote for a union in the future. The union is
a third party, along with members and the organization, that works to obtain better salaries, benefits, and working conditions. The specialist in labor relations duties will include communicating the organization’s commitment to obey all federal, state and city employment laws about equal treatment for all employees.
