Assignment on Training Plans for Employees

There are several standardized training events in large organizations that are required annually or biannually. One of these is often sexual harassment. For this assignment, write a training plan for all employees in your firm to educate and develop their awareness of sexual harassment and understanding of legal and organizational policies. Be sure to include training aspects of planning, design, implementation, and evaluation.

This plan should be in narrative form with a minimum requirement of 500 words. Discuss the following guidelines to complete your plan.

< >: Should all employees be trained at once? If not, who should be trained first? What are the anticipated outcomes or terminal learning objectives of the training?

< >: In what format should the training be given, and why? What modalities will be used for employees on multiple shifts or in multiple locations? What are the core elements of the training that will align with the learning objectives?

< >: Who will lead the training, and how will it be implemented? Will you be training for knowledge or behavior change? How will you conduct the actual training to account for knowledge and/or behavioral change?

< >: How will you know if the training was successful? What measures will you use to know if employees 1) learned from the training, 2) behaved differently after the training, and 3) the training has a bottom line impact to the firm?

Any sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations in APA format

Assignment on Social Problems

 Now that we have identified and clarified the nature of our chosen social problem, and examined two key organizations that address this social problem, we will now give a more in-depth discussion about the scope of the social problem, a major theoretical idea that can be applied to the social problem, and our own analysis of how this social problem might be better solved. A crucial part of this paper will be in identifying one of the major theoretical perspectives we have covered this session. The three major ones include the functionalist, conflict, and symbolic interaction approaches. However, as our texts point out, there are other theoretical viewpoints we may also adopt if we choose. The key will be in thoroughly reading and understanding these theoretical viewpoints, and finding the most effective one for understanding our chosen social problem of study.

Do take note of the documents under Resources. These will help you with APA format as well as with supplemental information pertaining to Social Problems. If you use any of those documents in your writings, you need to cite them within your text and show them under References.

Instructions:

Complete a 5-7 page final paper that analyzes the future impact of this social problem you have mentioned in the second writing assignment. In this assignment, you will cover:

1.    The scope of this social problem over the last 30-50 years. (Note: you will need to use historical data to articulate the scope of this problem — and be sure to cite your sources.)

2.    An analysis of one major theoretical perspective from our textbook that is useful in understanding this social problem.

3.    Finally, your own analysis of how you think addressing the social problem could be improved. In this analysis, please mention what you think should be done to solve this social problem. Your paper should utilize sound critical thought and it should provide appropriate APA in-text citations and APA full-reference citations.

4.    Use at least four concepts from our text (not used in our previous assignments) in your analysis.

Don’t forget to include proper APA-style citation and reference.
