Staffing Plan for a Growing Business

Overview

Please choose from one of the scenarios  below. Note: The scenario that you choose in this assignment will be the  one you continue to use for the Business Expansion and Sustainability  Assignment. 

Scenario 1

You are a Human Resources Manager of an  expanding technology company consisting of 170 employees that develops  and distributes small electronic devices. Over the past two years, a  research group formed, designed, and built prototypes of small remote  surveillance cameras used for security. Recently, your company won a  contract to build and provide these remote surveillance cameras to  various government agencies. The contract will begin with your company  supplying these cameras to agencies within your home state. If all  orders are fulfilled sufficiently, the contract will be expanded to  supplying agencies outside of your home state. For the immediate future, you will need  to secure a larger facility and hire more staff to sustain the first  part of the contract. This staff will consist of 10 Assembly  Technicians, one Certified Quality Control Engineer, one Contract  Administrator, and one Office Support Paraprofessional. Meanwhile, there  is a contract clause requiring that you provide a staffing plan in  order to ensure future product deliveries and sustain the possible  future growth. 

Scenario 2

You are a former certified education  administrator who departed your former position to become the owner of a  small, in-home day care consisting of you and a part-time assistant  where you care for children from ages 3–10. Over the course of time,  your demographic population has increased due to significant business  growth that has resulted in many families relocating to your area. With  more businesses projected to move to the area and the building of new  housing developments, it is projected that this growth could be long  term. You have decided that this is a good  opportunity to expand your day care business as you have received many  inquiries for childcare. In order to comply with your home state  regulations, you will require a larger facility and will need to hire  additional staff in order to sustain the larger demand for day care.  This staff will consist of five Certified Day Care Professionals, one  Registered Nurse Professional, five After-School Assistants, and one  Office Support Paraprofessional. You have secured approval for a bank  loan and qualify for future loans for future expansion if your current  endeavor is successful. Meanwhile, the state in which you operate has  requested that you provide a staffing plan before it will issue  licensure for your expanded capacity. Note: You may create and/or make all necessary assumptions needed for the completion of these assignments. 

Requirements

Select one of the scenarios and write a 4–5 page paper in which you: 

  1. Identify two types of staffing models that  could apply to your chosen scenario and determine which model would be  best suited for efficiency, productivity, and possible future growth.  Examine the significant effect of each identified staffing model on  processes that may be occurring within the organization (e.g.,  outsourcing, contingent workers, consulting firms, etc.).
  2. Predict the major potential legal issues that  you may encounter when establishing equal employment opportunities and  diversity within the workplace while still aiming to acquire employees  with the needed certifications and credentials. Next, explain the method  of achieving transparency within your staffing model. Justify your  response.
  3. Specify three tasks that you need to perform to  identify, analyze, and develop job requirements and task statements  that you will include in formalized job descriptions. Next, predict the  frequency with which you would need to review and adjust these job  descriptions as your company progresses. Provide a rationale for your  response.
  4. Describe three methods to deal with high  employee turnover and the availability of employees with required  knowledge, skills, or abilities. Next, describe the primary manner in  which the described succession-planning methods would be beneficial to  your company. Justify your response.
