Module 3 – Case
DEVELOPING AND REWARDING EMPLOYEES
Signature Assignment: Written Communication, Reinforced level In this assignment, your written communications skills will be assessed. The written communications rubric will be useful for this purpose. In MGT302, written communication skills were assessed at the “introduced” level. In MGT407, they will be assessed at the “reinforced” level. Finally, in MGT491, your written communication skills will be assessed at the “emphasized” level. The grading rubric for written communication at the undergraduate level has been developed to measure student success in meeting the MGT407 Case 3 expectations. Rubrics for the other two courses are included in their respective assignments. In an interview with Dr. Edward Hallowell (Harrison, 2011), he discussed his Cycle of Excellence as a five-step process that managers can use to foster high performance in their organizations. To manage employees, managers must first employ them, which is the first step—Select; however, the key point here is that the new potential employees selected must fit the current culture of the organization. How does one know if they do? When managers conduct job interviews, they can often tell by the candidates answers to the questions whether they are a fit or not. However, sometimes people get through the hiring process, yet turn out to not be a fit. This is one reason why a probationary period is often worked into a job offer. Another way to determine if a new employee fits in the organization is if they have connected with it, and this is the next step of Hallowell’s five-step process, (2) Connect. Does your new hire speak positively about the organization? If the answer is yes, then they have likely created the beginning of a connection with their coworkers, manager, and the organization. The next two steps, (3) Play, and (4) Grapple and Grow, go together because they are actions taken by employees along with their managers. Managers provide Play opportunities for employees to excel in tasks, but it is up to the employees to have fun doing them through newly acquired advanced skills and creativity. Increasing their skills through play leads to the fourth step, Grapple and Grow. This is when employees stretch their current skill level by taking on more difficult projects. These growth opportunities go a long way to increase job satisfaction and productivity levels. The final step, Shine, occurs when managers recognize employees for a job well done. Recognition comes in a variety of forms, such as a “thank you” said during a staff meeting, a gift card, an up-close parking space, or something else valued by the recipient. Reference: Harrison, J. (2011, March). Interview with Edward M. Hallowell, MD, author of Shine: Using brain science to get the best from your people. Human Resource Management International Digest,19(4), 43-45. Available in the Trident Online Library. Case Assignment
Draw on the material in the background readings and do additional research to prepare a magazine article in which you do the following: Analyze the five steps of the Cycle of Excellence and use it as a starting point (only) to create your own cycle of excellence. Discuss how the cycle of excellence you have developed is the optimum approach for managing human capital. The magazine article you are writing should be similar to an article you might find in TD: Talent Development (magazine of the Association for Talent Development) or in HR Magazine (magazine for the Society for Human Resource Management, SHRM). Both are found in the Trident Online Library. Utilize at least three other reference sources to build your article. Cite sources within your paragraphs and include them in a References list at the end of your article. (Note: Even though practitioner magazine articles at times do not cite sources or have a reference section, they are needed for our academic purposes. See the Introduction to APA 7th Edition for additional information. Include a cover page and a reference page. Note that the deliverable for this assignment is not an essay paper, but rather a journal article formatted like other published journal articles. (Most articles are written in columnar form, with some color and graphics to provide visual appeal.) Citation and reference style instructions are available at

Frequently asked questions
How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.
We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.
Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?
All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.
What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?
Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!
Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?
We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.
I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?
Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.
I got my order information wrong, can I change that?
Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (email@example.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.
Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?
Yes you can. Email Anna at firstname.lastname@example.org, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
