Research Project Proposal
Please submit a one-page Final Research
The Final Research Project Proposal should include a brief
overview of the company (its business objectives, its staff size and
organization, etc.), the process or design you intend to use to gather and
analyze your research information, and your plans for analyzing your data and
developing your recommendations.
Remember that the subject of your paper is
compensation/benefits/rewards practices, policies, and functions, not the
company whose practices you are studying.
Concentrate on the human resource
practices, policies, and functions, not the mission, strategic plans, and
performance of the company.
If possible, interview a high level HR
professional at this company to learn not only about the organization's HR
policies and practices, but also to obtain their viewpoint on the major
concerns for HR in the upcoming decade.
The Instructor will evaluate, comment upon,
and return the Evaluation Project Proposal to you early in the second week of
the term. You may then begin the additional work on your Evaluation Project,
which will be due by the end of Unit 6 of the term.
