Unit V Powerpoint Assignment

Over the past 40 years, union membership has declined, and it continues to do so. Instead, many companies are turning to alternative dispute resolution. We know one of the best union avoidance tactics is good communication and providing job satisfaction for employees.

Create a PowerPoint presentation (with speaker notes) that focuses on unions in the workplace. Address the following concepts in your presentation.

  • Identify the factors      that have contributed to the reduction in union membership. Be sure to      include the rationale you use in your speaker notes.
  • Evaluate whether or not      the reduction in union membership is a good or bad thing for employees in      the United States. Be sure to include the rationale you use in your      speaker notes.
  • Explain what alternative      dispute resolution involves, and identify the pros and cons from the      perspective of the employee and the pros and cons from the perspective of      the employer. Remember, you want to include the bulk of your explanation      in the speaker notes, not on the slide.
  • Describe a situation      where employees or managers would want to use some form of alternative      dispute resolution such as mediation or arbitration as opposed to direct      negotiation or litigation to resolve disputes. Be sure to include the      rationale you use in your speaker notes.
  • Explain how each of the      seven determinants of job satisfaction (individual personality, the work      itself, compensation, growth and upward mobility, coworkers, management,      and communication) help to create the type of environment where employees      experience job satisfaction. Remember, you want to include the bulk of      your explanation in the speaker notes, not on the slide.

Be sure to include an introduction and conclusion to your presentation. Include at least two images or graphics in your presentation.

Your PowerPoint presentation must be at least eight slides in length, not counting the title or reference slides. Adhere to APA style when constructing this assignment, including in-text citations and references for all sources that are used.

Unit VII Journal

In analyzing the needs of the workforce, work-life balance is high on the list of issues facing both employers and employees. Balance between work and home lives is sought but rarely happens for long because of work-family conflict. This conflict is also linked with some other bad consequences such as stress; absenteeism; burnout; and dissatisfaction with job, family, and life—all of which can lead to excessive job turnover and the breakup of families. Would you consider flexible scheduling which allowed you to have work-life balance a benefit? Why, or why not? What step would you like to see your current (or previous) employer take to help enhance your own work-life balance? Explain the benefit to both you and the employer.
