Question Description

I’m stuck on a Management question and need an explanation.

Each group will be assigned a Human Resource Function to research during the residency. The group will research the HR Function and prepare a 6 page paper that provides a research supported explanation of the HR function, an identified problem or challenge that organizations encounter when performing the HR function, and an explanation of how blockchain technology could help solve that problem or address that challenge. This paper should be in APA style and follow the writing requirements for this course. You may use the assigned course readings in this paper, but are required to use an additional 5 sources.

The paper should include the following sections:

1) Introduction: include some background information, the purpose of the paper, and a preview of the paper

2) Description of how the HR Function is traditionally practiced

3) Description of problems or challenges organizations face when performing this function

4) Explanation of how blockchain technology can help address the identified problem or challenge

5) Conclusion

6) References

One of the following Human Resource Functions will be assigned to each group:

1) Staffing: Includes planning, recruitment and selection. The process an organization uses to ensure that it always has the proper number of employees with the appropriate skills in the right jobs, at the right time, to achieve organizational objectives.

Your group will also deliver a presentation of this project. The presentation rubric provided in the classroom will be used to grade the presentation. Each group member must participate equally in the presentation. Power point is required and the presentation should last 15 minutes. Do not use animations in the power point design. Email the power point slides to me Sunday morning before class begins.The presentation is worth 50 points and the paper is worth 150 points.

The following writing requirements must be followed for all initial discussion posts and papers submitted:

  • References MUST be cited within your paper in APA format. Your reference page and in-text citations must match 100%. Papers without in-text citations will earn failing grades.
  • Always include a cover page and reference page with ALL submissions (even initial discussion posts).
  • Provide the EXACT web link on the reference page citations for all online sources – do not provide just the home page, but the EXACT LINK – I check all sources.
  • No abbreviations, no contractions – write formally
  • Write in the third person formal voice (no first or second person pronouns).
  • Write MORE than the minimum requirement of the word count assigned.
  • As always, the word count is ONLY for the BODY of the paper – the cover page, reference page, and / or Appendix (if included) do not count towards the word count for the paper.
  • Indent the first line of each new paragraph five spaces.
  • Refer to the example APA paper in the getting started folder under the content tab if you need an example. Also, a Power Point is provided under the information tab that addresses APA format.
  • Use double-spacing / zero point line spacing, a running header, page numbers, and left justify the margins.

• Human resources are one of the most important roles in any organization.
• The role of staffing is to ensure that all positions in an organization are filled and the human
resources managers ensure that all employees are fit for the jobs they are given.

• It is the job of every human resources manager to procure, develop, and monitor employees and
make sure they match the strategic goals of the organization.

• Staffing also involves creating a motivated workforce that can work with minimum supervisions
and also ensures that all jobs are understood and clear.

• Hiring and personnel management are the other terms that are regularly used to refer to staffing.
• The purpose of this paper is to analyze the impacts of the use of blockchain technology on the
staffing process of organizations.

Traditional Staffing Process
• The first step in the staffing process is always estimating the manpower requirement
of the organization and this involves determining how the company operates and
how it is likely to operate soon.

• The second step is recruitment, and it involves looking for the desired people and
evaluating their validity.

• The other step is the selection of the most suitable person among the applicants.
• The selection process is based on the qualities of the candidates in comparison with
the requirements of the organization.

Traditional Staffing Process Cont…
• Placement and orientation are then done, whereby the selected person is

orientated into the organization as per their ability and aptitude and this is
followed by the training and development process aimed at sharpening their
skills and make then suitable for the job.

• Performance appraisal and promotion follow, and this is based on the

performance of the candidate as per the expectations of the organization.

• The last step in the staffing process is separation, which could be as a result
of retirement, quitting or firing (Anggraeni & Nulhaqim, 2020).

Problems Experienced in the Traditional
Staffing process
• One of the main challenges is finding the right candidate for the positions

There are several methods used to get the desired candidates for a job position
One of the methods used is classified advertising, whereby the company invites the
eligible candidates for a position, including the existing workforce.
The other one is placing advertisements on newspapers for the potential candidates
to see.
The process involves placing the adverts in an attractive manner that allows people
to understand the job description and apply.

• The other process is the use of the existing people to get a network of others who
can be used to select a reliable employee.

• The other challenge is determining what the organization needs. It is easy to

benchmark form other organizations but it is hard to implement the ideas from
other organizations as they are.

• The other challenge is determining the right culture for the company, and mostly for
a start-up business.

• The culture practised in an organization is a major factor in the reputation of the
business and brand development (Laforet, 2017).

Problems Experienced in the Traditional
Staffing process (continued)
• The initial hires are also a challenge to the staffing process because it is hard
to make the right timing.

• The management should ensure that all positions are filled whenever they are
needed and this is a challenge to many managers.

Use of Blockchain Technology in Human
Resources Management
• One of the uses is in protecting the sensitive information from cybercrime.
• The other one is that it could help in the recruitment and selection process
(Coita, Abrudan,

• Potential employees are capable of changing the resumes to reflect the
requirements of the organization. & Matei, 2019).

• The data in the blockchain is reliable and shows all requirements including
education, letters of recommendation, work experience and other factors
