Throughout this course, you will be developing key components and elements of an employee manual. Each week you will be instructed to complete several policies and procedures that you will submit to your instructor for a grade and specific feedback. You are expected to incorporate any and all feedback provided by your instructor, make those changes on your end, and then at the end of the course, as your final project, you will be submitting a completed and revised employee manual.
All policies and procedures must be original work. Students are encouraged to review existing policies and procedures to help build an understanding of what the policies should cover and the appropriate procedures, but students are not to copy from an existing manual and direct quotes cannot be used. All work must be original and based on a fictional healthcare facility.
Below you will be expected to complete the following in week 6:
- A job analysis policy. This should be, at minimum 500 words, and must address when supervisors are to conduct a job analysis, the process that supervisors must follow, and how supervisors are to develop tasks and competencies based on the analysis.
- A job design policy. You will need at least 500 words of content for this section and include a policy and procedure on when supervisors are to perform based job design based on the job analysis, the process of job design, and how job design changes are communicated.
- A complaints and grievances policy. This should be, at minimum, 500 words of content. You need to include a policy and procedure that outlines how supervisors are to respond to complaints and grievances. You should identify which complaints, such as sexual harassment claims, take priority when investigating.
You are required to use at least three references; one of these may be the textbook, and all responses must be written in APA format to include, at minimum, indented paragraphs, the use of in-text citations as appropriate, and a properly formatted reference page. You may use standard employee manual formatting, but in-text citations and references are required.
It is important to note that this is not a research paper, but rather an employee manual designed to guide managers and employees alike. Your audience is these employees and managers.
