Human Resource Management Compensation and Benefits
Create a PowerPoint presentation that is reflective of the following:
1) Type of position you are seeking if you were to leave your current position.
2) The location (if it matters where the job is located), compensation, and benefits you are wanting. You will want to consider the differences in cost of living when evaluating the compensation and benefits.
3) Using your current organization, identify and discuss your current total rewards package.
3) Select an organization or entity you are interested in working for, identifying and discussing the total rewards package offered. Look at both direct and indirect compensation.
(3) Compare the two packages, evaluating the pros and cons of each organization’s total rewards package and opportunity.
(4) In closing, make the determination as to which organization you would choose and why.
Purpose of the assignment is that often times, when people are looking for a new job; they are often enticed by the direct compensation, i.e. the wages, not really giving any thought to the benefits before making their decisions. In addition, it is common for employees to be unaware of the benefits that are available to them as well as to access them.
Besides becoming familiar with the benefits offered to employees by yours and other organizations, you be able to evaluate the total compensation being offered by organizations for the purpose of job offers and benchmarking to help your organization remain competitive.
A few things to remember:
• You should be able to address the topic effectively using 12-15 slides and USE YOUR NOTE PAGES.
• Do not forget to use bullet points or short sentences on your slides and expand on your note pages, or you can add audio. Think of this as where your essay would go. Often times, when someone cannot attend a presentation, they rely on the note pages to expand on the information on the slides.
• Graphics should be complementary to the narrative and not overwhelming or distracting from the content.
Creating a Visually-Friendly Presentation
When you hear the number 285 million people – that is no small number. What this number represents is the number of people who are visually impaired in this world, some are corrected but others have left their vision uncorrected. If someone is not wearing corrective lenses does not mean they are not experiencing challenges with their eyesight. All of us can name at least one person who does not want to wear corrective lenses or needs to.
Some of the common visual impairments include low vision, color blindness, and dyslexia. Objects may be out of focus. For others colors may skew what they viewing, and inhibit them from distinguishing letters, colors, and objectives. Some of the colors that are difficult for some individuals to distinguish are red, green, yellow, and blue.
There are a few things you can do to make your design visually-friendly:
1. Choose a legible font. This include Sans Serif, Helvetica, Arial, and Verdana.
2. Control brightness and contrast. As many of you have already heard me say – light background and use a dark text.
3. Limit animations and effect. Do not use spinning or wavy slide transitions.
4. Stay away from dark backgrounds and slide designs.
