Psych employee paper 5


Erica Freeman, president and CEO of LoneStar Landscaping, has recently partnered with Andrew Porter to expand her established, reputable business to include his business specialties: hardscapes, pools, and spas. Erica and Andrew realize that they need to examine combined organizational structure, hire additional staff, and perhaps reassign several existing employees.


Erica and Andrew hire you as an Industrial Organization (I/O) consultant. Design a narrated Microsoft PowerPoint presentation to help them accomplish their goals.

In your presentation, respond to the following:

  • Section 1: Explain the role of a job analysis for successfully accomplishing their stated goals.
    • Explain why a job analysis is a necessary prerequisite to engage in the employee classification, selection, and placement projects.
    • Evaluate the existing job description that Erica and Andrew have provided you for the office manager position.
    • Deliver your professional opinion regarding whether the existing job description is sufficient or whether it needs revisions.
    • Justify your recommendations by citing relevant resources.
  • Section 2: Create and critique a selection rating scale for the position of receptionist based on this job description.
    • Select and describe fifteen to twenty factors such as education, experience, abilities, and attitude, for assessment based on the job description provided.
    • Describe the measures used to assess candidate skills: resume, interview, other assessment instruments, or behavioral observation or a combination of assessment measures.
    • Design instructions for the use of the rating scale.
    • Discuss how you would test for reliability and validity of your selection plan.
    • Justify your recommendations by citing relevant resources.
  • Section 3: Analyze the need for a classification policy at LoneStar Landscaping. Next, develop an appropriate classification policy for LoneStar.
    • Identify the variety of employment classifications that may exist at the company, including exempt versus nonexempt, seasonal, temporary, and regular.
    • Explain how the policy addresses federal and state laws; clearly define each classification.
  • Section 4: Create a diversity policy for LoneStar Landscaping.
    • Identify and integrate strategies in the selection process to ensure the diversity in the hiring practices of LoneStar Landscaping.
    • Explain what considerations Erica and Andrew must make in order to address the needs of a multicultural candidate pool.
  • Section 5: Recommend a candidate for the position of office manager. (Note, the office manager is a different position from that of the receptionist position mentioned in section 1).
    • Erica and Andrew interviewed three candidates for an open administrative position. Please review their resumes and profiles and view and/or read a transcript of their interviews.

    • Based on your learning in this course and the information provided in the interview materials, recommend and justify the best candidate for the job. Give reasons for choosing one candidate and not choosing the others.

Executive Summary

Create an executive/summary brief for your clients, Erica and Andrew. In the summary, provide an overview of the work you performed in Sections 1–4. Conclude your summary with recommended future workforce initiatives they might want to consider.

Your final product will be an audiovisual Microsoft PowerPoint presentation consisting of 15–20 slides, utilizing at least seven scholarly sources, and incorporating narration throughout. Your presentation should be delivered in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources; and display accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
