Assignment Choice #2: Human Resources and Organizations
For this assignment, you will develop a PowerPoint presentation that demonstrates your knowledge of current trends in employee benefit programs, legal implications, and cost-containment strategies by providing a synopsis of the options being offered or considered by employers and the implications of each option.
In order to complete this assignment, you will synthesize all content from the week’s learnings. In addition, you are to utilize outside sources.
To effectively demonstrate your knowledge of the roles, functions, and competencies required in organizations, you must synthesize content from the reading assignments and module content. In general, the amount of content in this module can be summarized with 15 slides. Please support your observations and opinions with citations from 2-3 credible sources documented according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements.
PowerPoint Slides should follow some basic formatting guidelines:
- Bulleted text should use the 7 X 5 rule: No more than 7 words per bullet, and no more than 5 bullets per slide. This ensures the text can be seen from a distance (and keeps presenters from simply reading their slides.)
- Whenever possible, include an applicable illustration along with text. An example is utilizing a table that illustrates employment statistics or trends.
- Use color intentionally: Simple is better. The purpose is to summarize key points. Don’t focus too much on bells and whistles, a lot of color, and animation. While it’s fun to design with these tools, in the end, it takes away from your presentation. Your audience will get lost in the “dazzle” and miss the content.
