Workplace Environment Assessment-paper

Assignment: Workplace Environment Assessment

Clearly, diagnosis is a critical aspect of healthcare. However, the ultimate purpose of a diagnosis is the development and application of a series of treatments or protocols. Isolated recognition of a health issue does little to resolve it.

In this module’s Discussion, you applied the Clark Healthy Workplace Inventory to diagnose potential problems with the civility of your organization. In this Portfolio Assignment, you will continue to analyze the results and apply published research to the development of a proposed treatment for any issues uncovered by the assessment.

To Prepare:

· Review the Resources and examine the Clark Healthy Workplace Inventory, found on page 20 of Clark (2015).

· Review the Work Environment Assessment Template.

· Reflect on the output of your Discussion post regarding your evaluation of workplace civility and the feedback received from colleagues.

· Select and review one or more of the following articles found in the Resources:

· Clark, Olender, Cardoni, and Kenski (2011)

· Clark (2018)

· Clark (2015)

· Griffin and Clark (2014)

The Assignment (3-6 pages total):

Part 1: Work Environment Assessment (1-2 pages)

· Review the Work Environment Assessment Template you completed for this Module’s Discussion.

· Describe the results of the Work Environment Assessment you completed on your workplace.

· Identify two things that surprised you about the results and one idea you believed prior to conducting the Assessment that was confirmed.

Discuss the value propositions, core brand values and buyer behaviour of your chosen organisation;

Objectives:

  • To develop an understanding and appreciation about the influences of micro and macro environmental actors and forces that affect an organisation’s ability to serve the needs of the target market;
  • To develop critical analytical ability to gather and analyse relaevant data to facilitate decision making;
  • To develop foresights to predict industry trend and tailor the organisation’s practices to respond to the changing situation.

Instructions:

This assessment task requires you to develop a Marketing Environmental Analysis that comprises both the micro-environment and macro-environment. The micro-environment analysis involves a scrutiny of internal environment that facilitates specifying the strengths and weaknesses, while, the macro-environment analysis requires the scrutiny of demographic, economic, natural, political, technological and cultural (DENPTC) dimensions which will assist in specifying the oportunities and threats. Changes within the macro environmental forces are outside of an organisation’s direct control requiring an organisation’s marketing strategies to be adjusted to capture emerging opportunities and minimise any potential threats.

Therefore, in this assessment task you will need to:

  • Articulate your learning about marketing concepts and principles covered from Module 1 to 3.1 to demonstrate your level of understanding to evaluate the organisation’s overall situation;
  • Critially analyse the link between marketing theory and practice;
  • Demonstrate research skills to reveal the insights;
  • Apply appropriate business report writing skills;
  • Discuss appropriate strategies with regards to your SWOT analysis.

Scenario: Choose an organisation from the list provided below that intends to expand its businss either through a new product development or a new business/market development.

HIST 1260: Europe 1789-1939

1. In 19th -century Europe, ordinary individuals could visit (if they could pay admission) “human zoo” displays of individuals transported from distant areas of the globe.  In an essay, examine these late- 18th and 19th-century developments and perspectives: nationalism and “national identity”, the Jewish Enlightenment, Bismarck and universal suffrage (for men), and the 1848 revolutions within the larger context of the concept of human value (for example: how humans are valued at this time of 1770-1880), what people understood as “value” in human beings).  Consider in your essay ALSO at LEAST TWO (2) historical intersections from this period between Enlightenment values, nationalism, and crime/punishment.  Last – do you think the proletariat could argue at this time that they constituted a “nation”?  Why/ why not?

2.Industrialization was rapidly incorporated in the 19th century into a concept of progress.  What do you think 19th-century Europeans perceived as evidence of progress in their society?  In an essay consider this question, and as well discuss the main components of the Industrial Revolution.  Include in your essay an analysis of utopian socialism and jingoism/xenophobia.  In what role were the Asian hemisphere and the African continent to participate in progress in the 19th century?  What did the Congress of Vienna (1814/1815) contribute, in your perspective, to the emerging concept of progress among European nations and leader?  (primary source letter of Lin Tse-Hsü must be a reference used in this essay)

3. In an essay examine three primary sources that we handled in our discussions this term:  1) Emmeline Pankhurst “Why We are Militant”; Moses Mendelssohn “What is Enlightenment”, and Francis Palacky “History of the Czech Nation in Bohemia and Moravia”, as you consider the following: What would you argue constitutes “effective occupation” of political rights in 19th-century and very early 20th-century Europe?  Consider the Principle of Effective Occupation, as I described it in lecture as you conduct your analysis in this essay.  Is possessing a region or a territory the same as possessing political rights?  Why/ why not?  What do you think Moses Mendelssohn would say to Emmeline Pankhurst about her arguments for the right of women to participate in a political destiny?  How would the Czech experience of nationalism have intersected with Mendelssohn’s notions of destiny?

History 2260 Environmental History

1. Over the past several years a battle has raged over whether or not the Vancouver Aquarium should be allowed to keep whales and other cetaceans in captivity. Examine this debate and the ideas about nature and the human relation to it that have motivated both those who want to maintain the whale displays and those who are opposed to the keeping of whales (but clearly not opposed to the keeping of fish generally speaking).
2. In recent months a “raw water” fad has emerged in the US and Canada. What is this fad? What do proponents and consumers of raw water believe are its benefits? What ideas about nature are involved in this fad?
3. From the late nineteenth century through the early twentieth century a variety of new movements emerged that responded to the conditions of industrial society of that time by promoting a “return” to nature. Examine this phenomenon in relation to either the Boy Scout movement, the German Wandervogel movement, the Kindred of the Kibbo Kift in England, or another similar movement of your choosing.
4. Across the western world the 1960s was a decade of unparalleled political, social, and cultural protest – including a countercultural protest in which individuals sought to lead a more “natural” life in terms of dress, comportment, sexuality, the food people ate, etc. These themes were addressed in the popular music of the era and some activists retreated to rural communes. In an essay, explore the “back to nature” movement of the sixties, why activists thought they needed to go back to nature ad what they thought that return would deliver to them.
5. One of the earliest and enduring responses to industrial society throughout Europe and North America has been the rise of the suburb. Explore the development of the suburb at any time in the last two centuries and the extent to which it is and how it functions asboth an embodiment of modern nature loving and an important response to the growth of urban industrial society.
