PLEASE ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTION…Why are some car sales companies like CarMax paying their sales associates a salary when most of the industry pays their sales associates a straight commission? What might be some drawbacks of this plan?AN EXAMPLE…I believe they are doing this in order to create a sense of security for the employees along with loyalty among the company, So the associates can work more efficiently without worrying about their paycheck coming from a sale they perform, and instead get paid for the process of engaging with the customer to make the sale. However, there can be some drawbacks to this plan, the associates might not feel that motivated to sell the vehicle because they know that they are on a fixed salary, and there would be a decrease in performance possible due to this, and this may increase the tension of financial salary.
IntroductionThis course has identified and discussed many forms of domestic or family abuse and violence. In this assignment, you will focus on fatal domestic violence between intimate partners. You will examine research on numbers of victims, victim (decedent) characteristics as well as perpetrator characteristics. You will also examine risk factors for fatal domestic violence and responses to lethal domestic violence, including threat assessment and death review teams.Assignment overview — What Is a Fact Sheet?Fact sheets are short reports that present information in a readable and interesting format. They enable scientists and researchers toconciselysummarize the results of research, so it is shareable with the public or other professionals. However, be aware that fact sheets are more than just random lists of words or numbers. A useful fact sheet has a clear organization and structure. It names the issue at hand, defines it, sets up relevance, gives data (usually numerical or statistical), discusses interventions and makes recommendations. Because fact sheets summarize data in a report format, they must provide accurate citations and references for the sources. An example of a fact sheet is this one by the Child Welfare Information Gateway onChild Abuse and Neglect Fatalities(You will needAdobe Acrobat Readerto access this file).General Format and AudienceMost fact sheets are two to four pages in length. They should have a good balance of text (in a readable font), white space, and images or charts and graphs. An effective fact sheet is informative and visually interesting. Many use a two-column format as well as color fonts and headers, and photographs. [Given the sensitive nature of this fact sheet, images of victims (photographs) are not appropriate]. Pie charts or histograms with statistics are ideal for fact sheets. You may use theFact Sheet templateto help simplify the formatting process.It is important to keep your audience in mind as you write the text for your fact sheet. Assume that your audience consists of domestic violence interns. While your fact sheet targets a semi-professional audience, they may not be familiar with the technical definitions for all relevant terms. Therefore, you must take care to define all key terms. For example, some members of your audience may be unfamiliar with the concept of a fatality review report, so be sure to define that term. Use headings throughout the fact sheet to guide your reader through the fact sheet.Content ExpectationsProduce a 1200-word fact sheet on fatal domestic violence using assigned resources and two of your own. Your sources cannot be websites. You may use government reports (CDC, DOJ, FBI, etc.) or peer-reviewed articles. News reports (print or video) are not allowed for this project.Your fact sheet should:Define fatal domestic violence. Please note–do not define domestic violence–only define fatal domestic violence. This is a fact sheet for a very specific and narrow topic.Present and explain statistical evidence relating to fatal domestic violence that includes victim characteristics such as age, educational attainment, marital status, relationship to the perpetrator, and method of death.List and discuss risk factors for fatal domestic violenceList and discuss two types of interventions.Define and discuss death (fatality) review processes.Use the required resources to write the fact sheet.Required resources — you are required to use ALL of the following resources in your fact sheet.Block, Carolyn Rebecca. 2003.

No. of words 3000 with 10% toleranceEssay to contain 5 sections:1.Executive summary2.Introduction3.Answer to the 4 questions (refer below)4.Conclusions5.References (Include harvardstyle referencing, must have more than 10 references)In the case you are working on, South Korea Hyundai is the PCN and HCN country is India Hyundai.Question 3 should include these 4 questions, There is a brief guide on what to write under examples: Do take note on these examples as they serve as a guide. Do not copy as they are faked scenarios.1. What are the contextual factors (cultural environment, institutional environment) of country selected? What are the firm-specific factors (strategy and structure, corporate culture, physical firm size, maturity stage of Hyundai Motor India) of the MNE Hyundai.Start with a brief Introduction something along the line…… Background of PCN (Hyundai South Korea) and HCN (Hyundai India) -eg. ABC China is an international organization and has yet to transform into a multinational corporation due to small country size, thus possessing low global efficiency and local responsiveness. ABC China and ABC India are taken as our parent country and host country respectively. They adopt a pluralist HR perspective as they recognize the presence of different views and goals in ABC company. This report aims to examine what ABC can build on to develop a workable international HRM model.a)Contextual factorsCultural dimensions – PLEASE use the Hofstede diagramExplain:- Compare and contrast briefly on the culture dimensions, zoom into 2 or 3 main differences(Collectivism vs. Individualism, Masculinity vs. Feminist, Uncertainty avoidance) .***Put it in a column and row table format.***b)Institutional environmentIndustrial relations – Talk about the Unitary (Hyundai South Korea) and Pluralist (Hyundai India) Perspective.Explain:-How this environment drives the company’s HRM policies-How does it affect HRM practices in South Korea and India ??-Talk about the India regulatory environment and country of origin effectc)Firm-specific factors (Compare and contrast both countries)Explain:- Strategy and structure eg. global, transnational, international, multi-domestic.- How are they organized eg: by territory, product group, etc.-Firm size of South korea Hyundai and India Hyundai-Market analysis strategy2. Compare and contrast the Human Resource strategies and processes (Recruitment and Selection, Training and Development) adopted in the headquarters (Hyundai Korea) and the local subsidiary (Hyundai india).Recruitment and Selection -Explain:- Describe how PCN (Hyundai South Korea HQ) and HCN (Hyundai India), conduct their internal and external approaches/methods etc.- Talk about South Korea (ethnocentric approach) and India (polycentric approach).Talk about where to recruit people from Bangalow India? Find other place in India other than New Delhi as they cannot possibly hire all their workers from New Delhi (as there is alot other small cities in India)How to recruit those from lower class system? (e.g social dumping?? Caste system??)Criteria of selectionTraining and Development -Explain:- Hyundai Motor Group university, (please do further research) adopted in the headquarters and the local subsidiary.Example:South Korea Hyundai uses an ethnocentric IHRM staffing as South Korea Hyundai headquarter key positions are held by Korea management (PCN). Strategic decisions are made there to ensure effective communication and coordination. PCNs are familiar with the HQ goals, objectives, policies and practices. However, it is difficult to adapt to Hyundai India macro-environmental factors and host country nationals (HCN) promotion opportunities are limited.Example:India (HCN) workforce mainly consists of HCNs so that it can gain acceptance from the citizens into India, which is aligned with its “think global, act local” theme. Using HCNs allows lower hiring cost and unnecessity of work permit. However it restricts PCN oppotunities to accumulate foreign experience. India Hyundai utlilises polycentric IHRM staffing as HCNs manager are seldom promoted to HQ positions.3. Based on Qn1 & 2, to what extend does Hyundai standardize or localize the HRM practices (eg. recruitment and selection, training and development) in the local subsidary?Please ensure in the report to explain and justify why :- Training and development standardize- Recruitment localize- Selection standardize4. What are the recommendations from this comparison could enable Hyundai to develop a workable international model of HRM for specific national country settings?***Recommendation is based on standardized and localizedquestion 4 is quite open-ended. students can discuss how Hyundai can improve the way they operating overseas. based on their analysis from Q3, what kind of approach should they adopt to achieve better performance (e.g standardization of HRM / Localization of HRM/ Integration of both?) and why? they may also ned to discuss the approach they proposed, is it workable for all context? or only workable for certain regions (e.g. Asia context)Conclusions
