Jan 28th Class Reflection

We finished up discussion on chapter 4 on designing jobs that are motivating. There are 5 factors that are important to consider in Job motivation. These are:
  1. Skill Variety
  2. Task Identity
  3. Task Significance
  4. Autonomy
  5. Feedback-Reviews
The last discussion was on job enlargement, job extension, and job rotation, when to use which strategy. All can be an effective way to change up a job and make it more interesting and motivating to employees.
We then moved onto chapter 5, this chapter deals with a lot of what I do at work so it really interest me. The staffing of a company is a rather complex and ever changing, it is very important for the company to manage the levels of staffing to stay viable. There are many options for managing the staffing levels, the most extreme measure is downsizing while other options include overtime, outsourcing, retrained transfers, temp workers, early retirement, and more.
