RA #4: HRM Application Paper

Using your available resources, research an article that relates to Human Resource Management in the last five years. Often, these articles will deal with business ethics, strategic planning, financial misrepresentation, goals and objectives of the firm, management style, corporate culture, Sexual Harassment, Total Compensation, Outsourcing, Rising Costs of Medical Benefits, Workplace Violence, etc. The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and Fortune are excellent sources for these articles. The article should have been published in the last five years.

The length of the application papers is 2 pages, double-spaced, using normal margins and font size. Typically the paper is 1/2 summary, 1 page application, 1/2 page reco-mmendation. Please include date of the article and the resource location. Do not use a cover or cover sheet.

Summary of Article

Here the key points of the article are retold in our own words. From this summary, I should not need to go back into the actual article to understand the context in which your application and recommendations are made.

Application of Terms and Concepts

Here is where you tie the article to HRM concepts, key points, and business vocabulary. This shows your understanding of the article within the context of what has been learned in class. In this section, you will need to explain how the article relates to specific issues affecting Human Resource Management today. You will need to describe the specific HRM issue and how it relates to the article subject. Please be sure to CLEARLY label which concept you are explaining.


Here is where you recommend a future course of action and why you feel your course of action will work. You cannot recommend the company continue as it has; you must make future recommendations such as what you would do next, how and why. It is recommended that you choose an article where a specific course of action was taken. For example, let's assume you choose an article relating to the Enron Corruption scandal. Enron executives handled the situation in a specific way. In your recommendation, you would want to outline how you would have handled the situation differently had you been an executive at Enron.
