How can a company determine what the starting wage should be for any given position?

Preface:
Compensation is a recurring topic of debate and there is an abundance of economic challenges to consider. Global competition for talent continues to force organizations to review their current compensation plans while the global pandemic has pressured companies to develop innovative ways to retain high performers. This includes legal and discretionary benefits along with bonuses that are often referred to as Total Rewards. While exempt employee compensation is frequently tied to organizational performance, non-exempt employees are typically compensated based on individual metrics. Unfortunately, current compensation packages may not always consider the contributions of part-time, temporary, and on-call staff that are relied on to perform essential business functions.
Guidelines:
Consider current global economic issues that have challenged traditional compensation plans. As the Human Resources professional for your company, you have been tasked with establishing a Total Rewards strategy. With a staff that is comprised of exempt and non-exempt workers, you will have to consider how employees that must work on-site perceive how they are paid compared to those that can work remotely. While conducting your research, consider how Total Rewards can include employee recognition, flexible schedules, bonuses, and tuition assistance.
Analysis:
How can a company determine what the starting wage should be for any given position?
What factors should be considered for compensation to be considered equitable?
Which mandatory and discretionary benefits should be included and why?
Will benefits and compensation details be kept private or made public?
Expectations:
Embed at least one reference per paragraph.
2 pages in length with sufficient research information.
Use 3rd person, proper grammar, punctuation, and spelling.
Follow proper APA format, including title and reference pages.
Construct complete paragraphs that are 4-6 sentences in length.

Identify two possible constraints to your needs assessment approach, explain how the constraints will be overcome.

You and several classmates have formed a human resource consulting company. You have
recently been hired to provide training to the sales force for an automobile dealership. As
part of your preparation for this consulting engagement, you and your team members must
determine how best to approach the automobile dealership to engage the interest of the
decision makers. Your part of this assignment is to propose the types of needs assessment
tools that could be used to determine how to design and develop the automobile
dealership’s training programs. These assessment tools could include software, models, or
analysis methods. Once you complete your needs assessment, you must now meet with the
owner of the dealership to discuss the needs assessment.
From the perspective of a team member, write a 3-4 page needs assessment process in
which you do the following:
1. Develop an outline that details the process your team will use to conduct a needs
assessment for the clients training program, support your decisions with academic
resources.
a. Review Chapter 4 on needs assessments. It discusses different types of
assessments. Select the best one(s) to use to gather information. Keep in mind
that you are trying to find out the organizations needs related to their sale force.
Hence, you need to outline the method you are going to use to gather
information and make a recommendation to management on what type of
training may be required. Use this information in conjunction with your research
from the Week 3 discussion.
2. Identify two possible constraints to your needs assessment approach, explain how the
constraints will be overcome.
a. The text also discusses obstacles to conducting a needs assessment, such as time,
cost, leadership buy-in, and employee willingness to participate. The most
common are time to conduct a thorough assessment and cost. You should
mention the others briefly as supporting information.
3. Evaluate the feasibility of the needs assessment approach based on what is commonly
done in the field, discuss your findings.
a. Feasibility is the likelihood your process would happen in this industry. Is your
process a standard practice?
4. Explain why the needs assessment is critical to the development of the training program
you plan to deliver.
a. Your goal here is to answer what can happen if you develop training without
understanding the training needs and why it is important to determine the issues

How do we as HRM professionals objectively determine the “value” of simulation training?

A popular type of training at all levels of an organization is simulation training/development. Simulation training uses a duplicate work environment that is set up independently of the work site. In this setting, trainees can learn under realistic conditions, but away from the pressures of interruptions. Based on your knowledge, research, and/or experiences, discuss the value of simulation training/development. How do we as HRM professionals objectively determine the “value” of simulation training? Then, discuss the problems of simulation training/development that should be taken into consideration by human resource professionals. Finally, make a recommendation as to how simulation training/development can be assessed and used for succession planning.
Support your post with additional information from at least two reputable sources (library and/or web-based). Cite your sources. Bring in your own personal experiences, as applicable.

Explain the differences between the qualitative and quantitative functions of the data collection.

This is a research project for a dissertation with a word limit of around 10,000 words (with a 10% allowance permitted over this word count limit) and Harvard referencing throughout. The font is Arial, size 12, with double spacing everywhere.
Below is an approximate guide to the word count weight you may wish to apply to each section. This is to indicate the relative importance placed on each section and not to offer a rigid formula.
• Introduction (~500 words)
• Literature Review (~2000 words)
• Methodology (~1500 words)
• Results (~1500 words)
• Discussion (~3250 words)
• Conclusion (~500 words)
• Reflections on Learning (~750 words)
• References (not included in word count)
• Appendix (not included in word count)
I have attached the approved research proposal and a draft combined chapter for research and discussion. This needs to be edited, condensed (word count) and improved (split into the 2 chapters as outlined?).
Feel free to play with the presentation of the data gathered but stick with thematic analysis. Explain the differences between the qualitative and quantitative functions of the data collection. I am open if there is a better way to present the 2 tables. (I have attached the original interviews and survey results).
Please add a summary of the survey results and a separate summary of the interviews at the beginning of each section.
The discussion section also needs some help with more references to support the findings and literature reviews. Take specific survey questions/responses and discuss them with outside data to back the results up and reference them—no need to go into detail on all of the survey responses.
Both the proposal and the data analysis have references listed. I have also attached some options.
Thank you
