Module 3 – Case


Assignment Overview

After a Hard Day’s Work at ACME

In this Module 3 Case, you have the opportunity to delve further into
the talent management function and HR’s role in it. As you may
recall from the video on talent management, performance
management, learning and motivating, compensation, career
development, and succession planning all are contributors to
building a strong talent pool.

You will learn more about two employees who have been with
ACME, Inc. for two years. Andy is working as a quality assurance
specialist in the plant and Ismal is an IT robotics specialist. These
employees are friends and often meet outside of work with a few
other ACME employees, including Henry, a new employee recently
hired as an HR Staffing Specialist.

Ismal caught some movement out of the corner of his eye. It was a
video on the overhead TV screen:

Seven Dimensions (2021). 4 Essentials for Compassionate
Leadership. Insights and Strategies: Workplace Skills. 10:49
minute video. Available in the Trident Online Library, Films on

“Quiet….Listen to this,” pleaded Ismal. The table of
acquaintances turned to the screen. “That’s it–I make
good money at ACME, but lately I feel something is

“Something is missing? Ismal, you are lucky. Many things
are missing for me, ever since I got my new manager…”
said Andy.

“Yep, more than one thing for me too,” said Ismal, thinking
about his own lousy boss.

Your Role: You are Henry, the HR staffing specialist. Henry wants to
impress his HR boss and thought “what an opportunity….I’m going to
prepare a detailed plan to save ACME from losing these and other ACME
star employees as well.”

Case Assignment

Prepare a 3- to 4-page actionable strategy addressing HR’s role
(ACME-wide) related to employee retention. Pull in as many good
HR practices as possible that Henry could employ to help in
employee performance, motivation, and retention. The strategic
plan that you develop for Henry to use should cover recommended
actions for the organization during the next 12 months.

In addition to the background readings, find at least two high-quality
additional sources from the Trident Online Library and/or from web
sources to augment your plan, such as, for example, academic or
industry magazine/journal articles.

Submit your Case 3 paper by the Module 3 due date.

Note: This assignment requires a 3- to 4-page Word document (not
