In this final written assignment, research methods that human resources departments embrace to evaluate the effectiveness of their selected compensation programs. Offer suggestions on how best to manage compensation programs that are measured as ineffective. Then, after describing measurement processes, and examples of effective and non-effective compensation programs, conclude your presentation by offering a recommendation of how best to measure the effectiveness of the compensation program you recommended in the Week 4 assignment paper (Designing an Effective Compensation Program). Using the aforementioned “Guidelines for Writing Papers”, write a 3-5 academic paper that answers the challenge of this Week 8 assignment.
In lieu of a written and final examination, the final examination will be in the form of a final PowerPoint project. Each student should identify three publicly-traded corporations while identifying the compensation of the senior leaders of that organization. Create a pros and cons argument for and against the compensation received by these leaders. Then, draw a comparison to the earnings of notable celebrity athletics or entertainers, while considering the responsibilities of those people to the leaders of the previously selected corporations. Do you support the executive pay? Why or why not?
The final project is worth 140 points, or 20% of the final grade. The 7-10 slide presentation, should include SPEAKER NOTES (aka Presenter Notes), and be supported through academic evidence and example (i.e., references). It is also suggested the PowerPoint presentation contains a standalone cover slide, an agenda slide, the 5-7 content slides with speaker notes), a standalone summary slide, and a reference slide.
