I need responses to the 2 discussions and 2 responses 1 each to each student.
Week 3 Discussion:
Criteria Please respond to the following:
Criterion or criteria is the principle or standard by which something may be judged or decided.One example of criteria is SAT scores and how they are a key tool in deciding whether or not a student gets into a particular college or not. Also and probably the most important is finance criteria. If the defined word criteria is the principal or standard by which something may be judged or decided how often is criteria used when making large financial decisions. A mayor of a major city would need to examine criteria before presenting a proposal for a new school to fix roads or structures around town. Criteria can also be used in the process of qualifying for something. A friend of mine is a police officer he had to take a physical as well as several mental tests. If I was interested in becoming a police officer I may ask my friend do I fit the criteria or what is the criteria to apply meaning what do I need before applying or being accepted into the academy.
I’m struggling with the topic of my justification report as I usually do trying to find something that doesn’t exist I guess I don’t have the imagination I did when I was a kid. The topic I’m thinking about exploring is employee break room costs. For instance the CEO of the company has put me in charge of managing the vending machines coffee machines the packets or cups for the coffee machine. Pretty much all that a coffee station/break room would entail the paper products as well as the appliances. My job is to find out how to save the company money in that department along with making sure everything is in working condition. My job will extend outside of the break room a little bit as well because there are water coolers and other stations that need to be managed as well. I will do research weekly to find out what items or things we could do as a company to save money while keeping employee moral high. I chose this this criteria honestly because it was all I could think of at the time. I feel like I would be better at this if I was actively working because I would have a better idea of what goes on or I could do the assignment based on what I do everyday. I haven’t worked in almost 4 years due to injury so this is all I came up with. Another reason I chose this is because it seemed like easily accessible information prices of items what it costs the company in bulk and how we can save money by switching delivery services.
Discussion Wk 4:
Preparing Reports and Proposals – ResearchPlease respond to the following:
My justification report is on the benefits of having an extended lunch break. My current job allows their employees to have a 30 minute lunch break but my argument is to extend this break between 45 minutes to an hour.
When recovery is insufficient an individual has to invest additional effort at work which may cause strain and lead to accumulating strain reactions in the long term. Recovery therefore plays a significant role in counteracting strain caused by job demands and helps in maintaining well-being and energy at work. (S. Marjaana)
