1. There are several factors that can have an impact on the relationship between employees and employers; these are identified as internal and external factors.
Internal factors;
• Pay and rewards attract and retain employees. Having the right pay and benefit for employees motivate them. This helps employees feel valued and can remove animosity between employee and employer. Training and development has a positive impact on employees, this shows investment from the employer and enhances career progression.
• Organisation culture has a large impact on the relationship, if an organisation has a certain culture that is generally expected from employees. For example, employees are expected to work more than their contracted hours however should the employee require time off for dental or doctor appointment, the flexibility is there from the employer to enable employees to attend such appointment without any salary deduction.
External factors;
• Technology can have huge impact on employment relationship. New and improved technology within a production organisation, for example, may lead to redundancies as the manual work from employees may no longer be required. This will have an impact on those employees who still remain employed, they could feel demotivated and be left wondering if they would be next to be made redundant.
• Pay and rewards are also an external factor as well as internal. Employees could be offered a better salary for a similar role therefore demands a higher salary and reward with their current employer. However, this could cause conflict if the demands are not met and create hostility which could result in the employee leaving.

• Temporary contract is normally used for a specific time therefore has a…...

...1.1 Explain the knowledge, skills and behaviours required to be effective in an identified HR or L&D role. The explanation should refer to the HRPM, and include a summary of the HRPM (particularly the 2 core professional areas) and an explanation of the activities and knowledge, at either band 1 or 2, of any one of the professional areas. The CIPD HR Profession Map specifies the activities, knowledge and behaviours involved in different HR/L&D roles. It’s a framework of things you need to do and know in order to be a successful HR professional. The HRPM is made up of 10 Professional Areas, the 4 Bands of Professional Competence and the 8 Behaviours. The two Core Professional Areas are Leading and managing and Insights, Strategy and Solutions. These areas are vital to all HR professionals. Insights, Strategy and Solutions - This area deals with the professional’s understanding and insight into an organisation. Through knowledge of how the business works an HR professional can put into practice strategic solutions to effectively manage an organisation’s specialist requirements. Leading HR - To effectively lead in HR one must act as a ‘role-model leader’. This includes developing yourself professionally, whilst also leading, supporting, and tracking others development.

Information on this map is shown (below) by a circle made up of a core and 3 layers, and also 4 bands which are displayed to the side. Starting from the core, I’ll work my way out through the layers to the outer edge of the circle, and then discuss the bands, one by one. The core of the circle is applicable to all HR professionals, and is central to all roles. There are two aspects of the core – the very centre, labelled, ‘Insights, strategy and solutions, and the ring around this, which is defined as ‘Leading HR’. The centre reminds us that the HR professional have continuous awareness of business strategies and areas of weakness and have the skills and capability to provide genuine business solutions that fit with organisational values. Professionals should be able to consider a range of needs and factors, such as customer needs, financial constraints and political climate.

...MERS Nioka Sizemore HCS/245 Sept 8 2014 Windy Tanner MERS MERS is the Middle Eastern Respiratory Virus, in 2012 the first cases of MERS was confirmed. MERS is a virus that attacks the respiratory systems. There has not been another virus that can be compared to MERS because of the ways you can be infected and how it attacks the person infected. Symptoms of MERS include flu like symptoms such as fever, cough. MERS affects your breathing causing a feeling of shortness of breath. The public health risk right now is very high and the CDC is collaborating with the World Health Organization to find out what the risk factors are in detail. Certain groups of people are more likely to contract the MERS virus. Children are a large source for spreading MERS because it can be spread just like a cold or the flu. People who are at a higher risk for this virus are those who are already dealing with health issues that may have weakened their immune system. Asthmatics are highly likely to become seriously ill by the MERS virus because it attacks the respiratory system and asthmatics already have a weakened immune system. As of now 2014 the World Health Organization has updated the amount of people affected by the MERS virus. According to the World Health Organization as well as the CDC there is approximately 228 active cases as well as 92 deaths that have been caused by the MERS outbreak.
