...Staffing The first private employment agency in the United States was opened by Fred Winslow who opened Engineering Agency in 1893.[citation needed] It later became part of General Employment Enterprises who also owned Businessmen's Clearing House (est. 1902). Another of the oldest agencies was developed by Katharine Felton as a response to the problems brought on by the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire. Many temporary agencies specialize in a particular profession or field of business, such as accounting, health care, technical, or secretarial. [edit]Legal status For most of the twentieth century, private employment agencies were considered quasi illegal entities under international law[citation needed]. The International Labour Organization instead called for the establishment of public employment agencies. To prevent the abusive practices of private agencies, they were either to be fully abolished, or tightly regulated. In most countries they are legal but regulated. Probably inspired by the dissenting judgments in a US Supreme Court case called Adams v. Tanner, the International Labour Organization's first ever Recommendation was targeted at fee charging agencies. The Unemployment Recommendation, 1919 (No.1), Art. 1 called for each member to, "take measures to prohibit the establishment of employment agencies which charge fees or which carry on their business for profit. Where such agencies already exist, it is further recommended that they be......

Staffing Plan

...Staffing Plan Peter Adija University of Phoenix Human Resources Management – MGT/431 Instructor David Mallory June 28, 2010 Staffing Plan Huffman Trucking (HT) is a company that has always gone against the grain. It has always taken the bold moves when others remained cautious and fearful. HT flourished through the uncertain times during and after World War II. And midway through 2010 with many economist and pundits forecasting that the economy will not get better soon and may relapse into a “double dip” recession, HT has sought to make the courageous move and take advantage of some of the positive signs in the market and bravely engage in hiring and re-staffing reflecting the company’s goal of expansion. Employees of a company are not just responsible for carrying out their duties while at work; they are responsible for representing the companies they work for on, and sometimes, off duty. Employees today should be aware that what they say and do off-duty could cause them their jobs. Recently a waitress in Charlotte, NC went on the social networking site Facebook, to vent about her tip from a customer. She rudely spoke about that customer and soon management discovered her post. (Frazier, 2010) Some may say this incident borders on issues of privacy but from a management perspective there is the image and well-being of the company to worry about. Employees are an extension of the company. Hiring employees is not just about body counts. A qualified......

The articles do vary in their methods of gathering information. One study used organizational data from 799 facilitates in eleven states to examine the outcomes of care from the type of nursing care received (Needleman, Buerhaus, Mattke, Stewart, & Zelevinsky, 2002). Another study examined the outcomes of care of intensive care patients in 65 hospitals in the United Kingdom (West, Barron, Harrison, Rafferty, Rowan, & Sanderson, 2014). A third study that was reviewed used cross-sectional patient outcome data from a a nationwide project that provided information from 77 Level I and Level II trauma centers (Glance, Dick, Osler, Mukamel, Li., & Stone, 2012). The fourth article was a synthesis of research publications that examined the outcomes and mortality of patients based on specific determinants (Tourangeau, Cranley, & Jeffs, 2006). The fifth article is an investigative report on nurse to patient ratios and nurse work hours associated to patient care (Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, 2007). The fifth article was also prepared for the United States Department of Health and Human Services based on a survey of......

...Inadequate nursing staffing levels are known to influence on patient’s rate of complications, falls, medication errors and overall patient’s conditions. American Nurse Association found that 54 percent of nurses on medical unit report that nurses are not spending enough time with patients. Because nursing labor cost consumes the largest fraction of budget, many hospitals trying to save money by requiring nurse to work longer hours and care for more number of patients. This short-sight solution not only creates heavier work load to staffs but also threatens patient’s safety. There are no absolute answers to determine nurse to patient ration because it affected by variety situations and acuity of patient as well as units. However, since appropriate nursing staffing affects the patient and nurse mentally, physically and medically but also the financially, this issues must be addressed by Registered Nurses when one encounter with unsafe nurse-to-patient ratio. Nursing Staffs for Patient’s Safety When RN encounters with inadequate staffing, one must notify to direct supervisor because unsafe staffing is an important factor that threatens patient’s well-being. Management becomes accountable to provide adequate staffing for the nurses and the patients. Hospital faces the challenge to reconcile between their own needs and patient’s safety by providing enough nursing staffs. It would be easier if management incorporate collective factors into the staffing plan......

Collecting feedback and suggestions from employees promotes an open and more transparent management culture in the workplace. 1. It is suggested to talk to as many staffs as possible, then collate their views and seek consensus. This should be carefully planned in various forms such as focus group, individual interviews, discussion sessions or web-based surveys to stimulate mutual communications. 2. There is a possibility to consider transforming daily hours and weekly hours into monthly hours or even annualized total. There are also many other types of flexibility in relation to time schedules. For instance, daily flex-time, three-shift working, working half-time and reserve hours, or even adopting HR policies to allow employees to trade off their salary in exchange for more free time, etc. Flexibility could also be in the form of a management mechanism that allows employees to choose their preferred days off or change the scheduled roster on a fair rotation base so as to accommodate personal needs when required. 3.

...A Case Study in Staffing (Note that this Case Study was included in the First Edition of the text, but was removed from the Second Edition for space considerations). Metropolitan Motor Company (MMC) decided to open a new assembly plant in southwest Tennessee for their new compact passenger car line. The plant would require a workforce of approximately 1700 production workers, 370 supervisors and managers, 125 engineers and engineering technicians, and 110 administrative and office personnel. The cafeteria and security functions would be outsourced to independent contractors. Below, we describe the sequence that was used to staff the hourly production positions in this new facility. Before announcing the location of the facility, MMC did some investigation of the educational characteristics of the labor force in Tennessee, as well as a review of the secondary school system in a five county area surrounding the plant site. It decided to give first priority in employment for entry level and skilled positions to residents in the five county area, then to Tennessee residents, and finally to anyone, regardless of place of residence. The VP of corporate HR took several trips to talk to state and local officials about locating the facility in the area. State Department of Labor officials agreed that the state employment offices would accept and screen applications for entry level positions, using criteria developed by MMC. To ensure an adequate pool of applicants, MMC......
