Question Description

I’m studying and need help with a Psychology question to help me learn.

Essay (100 marks)

Organizational psychologists have observed seismic changes in the world of work. Every year, the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) lists the SIOP Top 10 Workplace Trends: https://www.siop.org/Business-Resources/Top-10-Wor...

1) With reference to your current or former workplace [If you are a full-time student and currently not working, you may choose an organization you are familiar with, e.g. as a volunteer], discuss ONE of the following four topics: a) Job analysis, b) Employee Recruitment, Selection, and Placement c) Assessing and selecting employees, d) Evaluating employee performance,

2) while examining ONE 2019 Top 10 Workplace Trend.

3) State a research question based on your current or former workplace, chosen topic, and chosen trend.

4) Compare TWO different research designs to study your stated research question within your current or former workplace.

(90 marks)

Additional notes/guidance/instructions:

• To answer this question, you will have to review information from your textbook on research methods, and your chosen topic: a) Job analysis, b) Employee Recruitment, Selection, and Placement, c) Assessing and selecting employees, d) Evaluating employee performance. However, this will not be sufficient as the information in the textbook is limited and also unlikely to touch on this exact subject matter. You are required to do additional research and cite at least THREE journal articles or book chapters of published books (excluding the textbook as well as the required reading) for this question.

• Reading widely and beyond the textbook will add depth to your essay, and references to relevant research studies and examples will attract more marks. There is an abundance of credible resources that you can access from the library and Library eResources. Do note that internet references such as Wikipedia, SimplyPyschology.org, and online student papers are not counted as credible resources.

• You will need to cite all sources and provide complete references in APA style.

• When planning and writing the essay, do remember that an analytical argument and critical evaluation will gain more marks than a descriptive essay.

SINGAPORE UNIVERSITY OF SOCIAL SCIENCES (SUSS) Page 3 of 7 PSY201e Tutor-Marked Assignment 01 January 2020 Semester Word Limit Please observe the word limit as writing succinctly is an important skill to acquire in academic writing. All text (including in-text citations) is included in the word count except the reference list, tables, figures, and appendices. Note that anything written beyond 10% of the word limit will not be marked. Referencing Follow the APA format as described in the “PSY Referencing Guide”. Appropriate in-text citations and an accurately formatted Reference section are expected. FIVE (5) marks have been allocated for this component. Information about the APA style and basic tutorials can be found in the APA website: http://www.apastyle.org/index.aspx Plagiarism and Collusion The assignment is to be completed on your own. You may discuss the TMA with your coursemates, however, the assignment must be written up independently. Do not share your notes, draft or final TMA with anyone before the marked TMAs are returned to you. Avoid plagiarism by giving yourself sufficient time to research and understand the material so that you can write up your assignment in your own words. Quotations should be used sparingly. Simply citing the source of ‘copied’ chunks of text does not excuse it from plagiarism. Do ensure that any paraphrasing is done appropriately (even if you use text from your own work that you have submitted as part of another assignment of the same or another course). The University takes a very serious view of plagiarism (passing off someone else’s ideas as your own, or recycling of contents from your own earlier marked TMA from the same course or another course) and collusion (submitting an assignment which is the same or very similar to another student’s). Both are very serious academic offences. Please refer to the Student Handbook on the penalties of plagiarism or collusion. You are strongly advised to submit your TMA early, check the plagiarism report yourself, and if needed revise and resubmit your TMA before the submission deadline. English Competency English competency is an assessable component of all TMAs and 5% of the total marks for each TMA have been allocated to this component. It is important that you write clearly and accurately, using correct grammar, punctuation and spelling.

WORKPLACE TRENDS

for new ideas, expectations, and establishments. Interestingly, both employees and employers
appear to be more aware of the growing opportunities and challenges encountered as a result of a
lack of evolvement. The advancement of the workplace has long been accelerated by a highly
dynamic business environment influenced by various factors such as competition, technology,
education, and cultural diversity. With the evolvement in of working environment, every
organization is striving to attract and retain highly talented staff to achieve a competitive edge and
stay ahead of the game. This paper discusses McDonald's, a previous workplace, and identifies the
