You will also conduct research about the various types of employee separations and the challenges that these can pose.

You will write a research paper that analyzes the hiring and selection process. You will conduct research and examine how a good hiring process can work to prevent voluntary employee separations. You will also conduct research about the various types of employee separations and the challenges that these can pose.

In preparation for your research paper you will locate four articles to support your paper. Your articles should focus on the following points:

· an explanation of the hiring process, a summary of the challenges in the hiring process, and an evaluation of the ways to meet the challenges in the hiring process;

· an appraisal of the tools that can be used in the selection process, and an assessment of how the hiring process can ultimately affect the other end of the spectrum—employee separations;

· a summary of the different types of employee separations; and

· a critique of how to effectively manage employee separations, downsizing/layoffs, and outplacement services.

Using Ebsco or another academic library, locate at least four peer-reviewed journal articles, one that supports each of the points listed above.

Submit a two- to three-page annotated bibliography of the four articles you will use to support your research paper for Unit VI. Include an explanation of how the sources were selected and how they are of value to the topic. Use APA style for your annotated bibliography.

Part 2

Reflect on the research you conducted for part 1, and write a research paper that addresses the following points:

· an explanation of the hiring process and a summary of the challenges in the hiring process;

· an evaluation of the ways to meet the challenges in the hiring process;

· an appraisal of the tools that can be used in the selection process;

· an assessment of how the hiring process can ultimately affect employee separations;

· a summary of the different types of employee separations; and

· a critique of how to effectively manage employee separations, downsizing/layoffs, and outplacement services.

Your research paper must be at least three pages in length, not counting the title and reference pages, and must include at least four peer-reviewed sources.

Be sure to support your research paper with the resources you located for your annotated bibliography. Use APA style for your research paper.
