With instructor approval, students will select an organization that either has or is experiencing challenges with its compensation and benefit system. The student will provided a brief historical view of the organization, an assessment of their current challenge, a review of other organizations who had a similar situation and the strategy they devised to address the issue, theories and strategies that should be contemplated to address the situation and, finally, a recommendation to management on how to address/resolve the situation. Importantly, the student should ensure any recommendations are based on solid research and analysis and reflect a comprehensive solution to the problem.
The research paper should integrate items discussed in class, textbook material, and additional information gathered from secondary or primary sources. A minimum of eight credible sources (other than the course textbook) should be used to develop your final project paper. Research topics must be reviewed in advance with the instructor
