Instructions: Final Research Project. Your organization is going to be expanding globally. Select two (2) countries of your choice. You will conduct research in which you
Identify and discuss, for each country, the customary benefits organizations provide their employees in those countries.
In your discussion, compare these countries with what organizations in the United States provide employees.
Topics to include in your comparison will include, but not limited to, health insurance benefits, wages, and paid time off. When sharing and comparing the countries, make sure you include information as to why. For example, if the income tax rate is extremely high, organizations might tend to offer X benefit.
Next, you want identify what these countries might do better and what might US organization do better.
Finally, make a recommendation as to 1) which country your organization should consider entering and 2) what benefits and wage practices would you recommend and would these benefits be the same as to what you offer employees in the United States.
Please keep in mind that what you provide in your project must support your recommendations. For example, in France, if you take public transportation to and from work, the company must pay 50% of their monthly transportation pass. This is something that might work for your organization here in the United States, especially in larger cities that encourage using mass transit, but you need to make sure you explain why if you did not already share this in the body of your project.
Prepare your research project this week as if you are preparing to present your findings to a HRM Benefits Counselor.

Developing employees through the implementation of training and development opportunities is a primary function of human resource management (HRM).

Reference to include for this assignment:

Technological innovations continue to invade nearly every aspect of our lives. George Orwell‘s prediction in his novel 1984 of “ubiquitous surveillance” may have come true. Every click you make, every web page you view, every communication you make using digital technology can be tracked. Marketing researchers analyze this data to tailor advertising campaigns targeting you as an individual.  Talking about cute clothes at a specific store while your phone is ‘sleeping’ may generate ads for that store on your social media feeds. Researching a political issue may result in targeted political ads appearing on your social media feeds. Every day, your digital profile is expanded and revised.

As a Human Services Professional Practitioner, you will often have to deal with

As a Human Services Professional Practitioner, you will often have to deal with service users experiencing crisis. Knowing how to best help a service user requires that you understand what constitutes a crisis and how different types of crises may require different kinds of responses from you.
For example, each of these service users in the following examples may be in crisis stemming from the loss of their father. However, each crisis is different:
Jacob, age 11, has not seen his father since his parents divorced one year ago.
Clarissa, age 72, just lost her father after a prolonged illness.
Samuel, age 32, just lost his father last night in a devastating earthquake.
Kenda, age 25, is about to get married. Her father died while serving in the army when she was two years old.
Your role and responsibility to each of these service users may change based on the type of crisis each is experiencing. In your Discussion this week, you will describe and compare different categories of crises as well as examine how your roles and responsibilities can change depending on the crisis.
Post the following:
Define what constitutes a crisis and provide an example of a critical incident in each of the following categories of crises: developmental, ecosystemic, existential, and situational.
Select two of the examples you provided and:
Explain the similarities and differences in the two critical incidents you selected.
Compare the roles and responsibilities you would have in each of the critical incidents you selected.

Review the legalistic approach and problem-solving approach during the arbitration hearing process. Then, develop two approaches that an organization could use to make the typical arbitration procedure more effective than either of these approaches.
Review good faith bargaining.
Discuss the major advantages and major disadvantages of your approaches.
Provide your rationale for each approach.

For the company you developed in Part 1;
Try to estimate Revenues and expense for the first year and create an estimated Income Statement and Balance Sheet (you may look at existing, perhaps newer companies, of the same organization form) to do this. If so, name the company).
Determine what the breakeven level of service would be, and discuss how you may want to adjust the companies operating leverage in light of your calculation.
Explain what method you would use to allocate costs, and why (Cost driver, Traditional (Direct, Reciprocal, or Step-down) or Activity Based). Again, discuss the pros and cons of each that led to your decision.
Describe how you will settle on pricing (price setter or price taker, target costing or Full Cost pricing or marginal cost pricing)
A summary of if you think the organization will be successful or not.
Again, for each of these, describe your decision making process, the pros and cons of different options, and specifically why you settled on the decision you made. This part should be 4 to 6 pages (1.5 line spacing). Use APA style. I am looking at your thought process, more than what your answer is, so make sure you explain things well! (100 points).
