Assignment 2: Talent Management
A company’s specific mix of individual employees combines to help produce an organization’s culture and feel. In this assignment, you will evaluate how an unbalanced mix of employees can affect a company.
You work in the HR department of a large, well-established company. Recently, senior management conducted a survey examining multiple aspects of current and historic employee data. One of the outcomes of this survey was the formation of a typical employee profile. It was determined that a typical employee falls into one of two categories—the majority of employees are less than 35 years old with less than 5 years of work experience, or they are older than 60 years old and have over 30 years of work experience. Very few employees fall in between the two extremes.
Write a report in which you analyze what the survey findings mean for the organization and develop a plan to address the impacts. Make sure to address the following:
- Analyze how this scenario affects the organization.
- Identify why this division may have occurred. Examine two explicitly different scenarios that may have led to this condition.
- Develop a plan to address the situation.
- Outline policies that you would put into place to keep the situation from happening again.
Be sure that your plan and policies are based on current HR best practices.
