Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Refer to the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric under the Settings icon above for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
The Staffing Function
Why is staffing important? Who is responsible for it? Is it a function of personnel/human resource departments? What are some of the ways managers can adapt to changes in the external environment (shrinking work force, impacts of technology, etc.) to recruit and maintain quality personnel?
Guided Response: Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts. When addressing the question, please make sure that the response is detailed and relevant to the topic. When responding to classmates, analyze their discussions by agreeing, disagreeing, or adding other ideas to strengthen or enhance the perspective presented in their initial posts.
