WageSim – A Compensation Administration Exercise

Item 1:

Mary Wallace,
I appreciate your request about wanting to promote Susan Anthony to Senior Assistant. I do understand that she has been a loyal employee for five years and recognize her longevity with the company. Due to the fact that Adobe InDesign is a requirement for promotion purposes we will have to decline the request, but I would like to point out that if Susan is willing to enroll in an Adobe InDesign class we would be more than willing to consider her for a promotion.
Thank you for your time,
Amy

In addition to this email I would also attach some materials on taking classes at the local community college or a continuing education type resource.

Item 2:

Kelly Actor,
I thank you for your honesty and coming forth about your employment options. Because we don't want to lose you as a valued employee I will have to do further research into this matter, but ultimately I would like to conduct a performance evaluation. I understand you are on a strict deadline so I will get into contact with your supervisor and set up an immediate evaluation and we can take it from there.
Thank you,
Amy

Item 3:

Jane Swenk,
I can definitely understand how the situation can be deemed unfair, especially after so many years working for the company. That is why, with an additional evaluation, we would like to consider M.O. Scott for a promotion. We will contact you further with more details and a date.
Thanks,
Amy

Item 4:

HR Director,
I will start working on the budget report for clerical workers. I will need to gather information from job evaluations, grade levels and the different job descriptions. I will also need to compare our information to that of other competitors and similar jobs.
Please let me know if there is any other…...

...Aerobic and Anaerobic Exercise You have probably heard the terms "aerobic" and "anaerobic" before, but do you actually understand what the differences are between these two forms of exercise? It's likely you can name some exercises which fall into each category such as walking for aerobic exercise and strength training for anaerobic exercise, but do you know why these things fall into those respective categories. Let's take a closer look at the differences between these two forms of exercise and explore what is best for your body. Oxygen Supply The technical difference between aerobic and anaerobic exercises is the amount of oxygen required by the muscles for support and where that oxygen is coming from. With aerobic exercise your muscles need a continued supply of oxygen, which comes from the lungs. Throughout the workout your muscle activity depletes its store of oxygen so it must be replaced through the lungs, which is why you typically breathe heavy while out for a jog or walk. With anaerobic exercises the lungs don't have time to supply oxygen and the exercises are performed without that replenishing supply. Since the lungs are not working hard to replenish oxygen to your muscles, you typically don't get as out of breath with these exercises. Length of Exercise Session Aerobic exercises generally last a longer period of time than anaerobic exercises. Consider the difference between a power walker who goes out for 30-90 minute walks and a weightlifter that does......

...The People’s Republic of China Positions for the Group of 77 (G-77) ______________________________________________________________________________ I. Examining International Terrorism: Developing a Joint Proposal for Counter-Terrorism Efforts The People’s Republic of China recognizes the need for the international community to adopt a comprehensive approach with cooperative measures in a multi-faceted method to combat global terrorism. The world has experienced decades of pointless terrorist attacks--in particular, the tragic loss of life on September 11th, 2001 in The United States. As proven throughout history, force alone cannot fundamentally resolve disputes and conflicts, and the national concept of security based on the use of force and the threat to use force can hardly bring about lasting peace in today’s world. Against this backdrop, an intensive cooperative security measure featuring dialogue and cooperation has emerged as the new global agenda. China’s security concept seeks common security against terrorism threats in developing nations through mutually-beneficial cooperation established through international cooperation against the use of terrorism. Terrorism is a result of complex array of political, economic, and social factors which cannot be resolved by military force alone. Only through strengthening of dialogue and cooperation between nations throughout the world can a fundamental approach to common security be achieved. Estimations show that......

...Evaluate the importance of regular exercise in maintaining a healthy body and mind; to what extent should the state play a role in ensuring that its citizens exercise regularly? Refer to at least two countries in your answer. Abstract Recent years have witnessed a dramatic increase in physical activity and fitness around the world. This essay will focus on the benefits of exercise for both physical and mental health. It is obvious that exercise helps people prevent a variety of diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular, depression and Parkinson’s. This also raises an argument on whether government should play an important role in promoting physical activity. This essay will clarify that it is reasonable for the state to take responsibilities in order to make sure that social health would be improved in the following years. 1/ Introduction A healthy lifestyle and longer lives are always the target that everyone wants to achieve, specifically; it is obvious that one of the most effective ways to do this is through exercise. Exercise generally means physical activity that makes your body strong and healthy. In addition, exercise also benefits mental health, especially in stressful work conditions which can affect individuals who lead busy lives. Therefore, in my opinion, it will be reasonable for the government (the state) to be responsible for ensuring regular exercise of all citizens. This essay consists of three main parts which will discuss the reasons why......

...EXSC 101: CAREER OUTLOOK 2 Abstract The overall job of a personal trainer is to teach others how to exercise in a proper and effective manner. However, there is much more to personal trainers than just teaching people how to exercise properly. A personal trainer will not only be a trainer but a friend, coach, and motivator as well. The job outlook for fitness trainers is excellent. This occupation is projected to grow faster than the average for all occupations through 2020 (McKay, 2014). Personal trainers earned a median annual salary of $31,030 and median hourly wages of $14.92 in 2011 (McKay, 2014). The salary and hourly wage of a personal trainer varies greatly based on experience, their employer, location, what type of contract they are on, etc. I would like to be a self-employed personal trainer who rents space at a fitness center or gym. Therefore, my total income will depend on the success of my own business. The working conditions of a personal trainer can be busy and demanding. Personal trainers usually work in shifts: varying from very early mornings, evenings, and weekends. Depending on what type of physical trainer the individual is they will either work in gyms, recreation centers, or even their own home. Opportunities are expected to be good for fitness workers because of rapid growth in the fitness industry. Many job openings will also stem from the need to replace the large numbers of workers who leave these occupations each year (Delta,......

...Exercise When a person is asked about the physical aspects of his body or even his health, one statement that person will never say is that he is perfect. No matter who is asked or what their situation everyone has something about their body that they would like to improve on, and without a doubt people with health problems would like to improve on their overall health. Individuals who are involved with regular physical activity are proven to have better fitness and better overall health when compared to those who are not involved in physical activity. There are many aspects of a persons life that can be improved. Whether it be better health or better fitness, regular exercise can dramatically change a persons life. In many studies, for a variety of different reasons, it has been proven that overall wellness and happiness begins with the brain. The way a person feels and the confidence they have can affect a persons way of life and over time the persons health. When comparing individuals who involve themselves in regular exercise to individuals who do not, people who exercise regularly are proven to be more happy. Regular exercise increases the production of serotonin produced by the brain. This causes a person to be in a better mood and to have more confidence in their daily life. Without regular exercise a person will have lower levels of serotonin causing bad moods and less self confidence. Low levels of self confidence can be very dangerous and can lead to......

...Types of exercise Physical exercises are generally grouped into three types,[7] depending on the overall effect they have on the human body: Flexibility exercises, such as stretching, improve the range of motion of muscles and joints.[8] Aerobic exercises, such as cycling, swimming, walking, skipping rope, rowing, running, hiking or playing tennis, focus on increasing cardiovascular endurance.[9] Anaerobic exercises, such as weight training, functional training, eccentric training or sprinting and high-intensity interval training, increase short-term muscle strength.[10] Categories of physical exercise Strength training Agility training Eccentric training Resistance training Interval training Continuous training Sometimes the terms 'dynamic' and 'static' are used. 'Dynamic' exercises such as steady running, tend to produce a lowering of the diastolic blood pressure during exercise, due to the improved blood flow. Conversely, static exercise (such as weight-lifting) can cause the systolic pressure to rise significantly (during the exercise). Categories Physical exercise is used to improve physical skills. Physical skills fall into the following general categories: Cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance, and Accuracy.[11] Metabolic equivalent of task The Compendium of Physical Activities was developed for use in epidemiologic studies to standardize the......
