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.
