Reflections from 4/20/10 Class

Today was the last day of class. This semester has been interesting, because in my naivety, I never realized how much HR encompassed. I honestly never realized the history behind the laws and regulations that we have in our workforce today.
Our presentations ended, and then we were given an opportunity to ask open questions about the exam. I must admit that the freebies are a big help. With 4 answers already, that gives 16 points to start with. (Thanks!)
Always good to reach the end of a semester, but definitely a class to remember.

Reflections from 4/15/10 Class

Class presentations resumed today. I actually got up to do my part on offshoring. The hardest part of the presentation was limiting my information within the time allowed. I'm glad I practiced over and over because when I was practicing I started at over 10 minutes and then went down to 8 minutes. I cut out 4 slides to get it to 5 minutes. I'm glad I practiced.

Research Project Presentations

Today was the start of our Research Presentations. I don't remember the names of the presenters, but there proved to be some good work put into their research. There was one presentation about building a positive workplace. There were good stats on what a company can save on turnover alone.

Reflections from 4/1/10 Class

I liked the video about Johnson & Johnson. I was interested in how their credo was a reflection of more than just their business practices. There was a lot of positive outcomes from there business style and it demonstrated an effective form of implementing positive objectives that will increase morale.
