Module 4 – SLP


Address the following questions in a question-and-answer format; that is, state the question and then answer it in detail.

The Background readings for this module explore the premise of how contingent workers, who have become a key foundation of the U.S. workforce, are compensated. In this assignment, compare and contrast the various aspects of how contingent workers are compensated compared with conventional workers. As you undertake this comparative analysis, address the following:

· How does the employment of contingent employees affect an organization’s business, its HRM responsibilities, its overall costs, and its organizational culture?

· In your educated opinion, should the compensation of contingent workers be the same (on a pro-rated basis) as conventional, full-time employees doing the same work? Discuss, bringing in both the strengths and challenges this approach presents.

· How would you, as the CEO of the company, create a sense of engagement with the infusion of contingent workers in a workplace that historically consisted of conventional, full-time employees?

Use at least 2 library sources and/or background readings to help strengthen and support your 3-page response.
