Benefit Types

The Cocoon House is a non-profit organization which addresses a major social problem in society called homelessness. They address this particular social problem by offering benefits and services to those needing such assistance with a goal of clients achieving one’s full potential with a combined organizational support system. Some of the benefits and services they offer are expert services and subsidies which most often are provided by way of counseling and educational programming. Credits/vouchers provided to clients are for payment to other businesses or organizations that the client otherwise could not afford to utilize. Material goods/commodities are in-kind benefits which are distributed surplus farm materials from the government like cheese, bacon, or flour. Power over decisions presents criteria of a rational model which includes such items as 1) behavior reflects purpose of intention, 2) power is centralized and the decision process is orderly and procedural, 3) rules are based on optimization of all sorts of resources with information often widespread and extensive, 4) decisions are taken focusing on value-maximizing choices, and 5) Ideology is efficiency. These benefits are in place for at-risk youths and their families in that have found themselves in desperate situations with a heavy emphasis on those with no housing or temporary shelter.
Each benefit and service is managed by experts in the field they represent for The Cocoon House. Some teens have other issues above and beyond just needing meals and a place to sleep at night and therefore require evaluations of such and assessments for each qualifying client. This organizations primary goal is to end homelessness by the year 2016 in Snohomish County, Washington.

... Benefit of the new public management There is a lot of benefit can be defined in the government that establish New Public Management (NPM). Firstly NPM attempted to diminish the role of the state and make the managers in various agencies become more responsive to be a political leader. Second, it aimed for greater efficiency through the use of private sector management techniques. Third, it focused on the citizen as a customer and service recipient. (Michael Hess and David Adams, 2007) As the major benefit can see that government activities have to moving from centralization to decentralization. We can call it as shared responsibility which all the managers in each agency are sharing an idea for a decision making. Under NPM, agencies have striven for increased efficiency at all levels.

... He proposed that a form of organization, called a bureaucracy, characterized by division of labor, hierarchy, formalized rules, impersonality, and the selection and promotion of employees based on ability, would lead to more efficient management. Weber also thought that managers' authority in an organization should be based not on tradition or charisma but on the position held by managers in the organizational hierarchy. Administrative management focuses on the management process and principles of management. In contrast to scientific management, which deals largely with jobs and work at the individual level of analysis, administrative management provides a more general theory of management. Henry Fayol was the mail contributor to this type of management. Fayol was a management practitioner who brought his experience to bear on the subject of management functions and principles. He argued that management was a universal process that consisting of functions, which he termed planning, organizing, commanding, coordinating, and controlling. Fayol believed that all managers performed these functions and that the functions distinguished management as a separate discipline of study apart from accounting, finance, and production. [2] Fayol also presented fourteen principles of management, which included; the division of work, authority and responsibility, unity of command and direction, centralization, subordinate initiative, team spirit/espirit de corps, initiative, stability of......

...ESTABLISHING A COMPENSATION AND BENEFITS PACKAGE LEONARD ANTHONY 3085841 Questions I would have to consider before establishing compensation and benefits package are; what is the purpose of the business I am in? Is it a high turnover industry? Is the industry targeted employees targeted for short-term employment? Am I in the peoples business or is my business predicated on the performance of employees? Once those questions have been answered, I would be able to establish a compensation and benefits package. For this paper I will take the later that my industry or field does experience turnover but it consist of employees that are committed to the company and looking for long term employment. The first things I would have to consider are my direct (cash) and indirect (benefits) compensation package. My direct compensation package would consist of salary, hourly wages and bonus. Factors that would affect my direct compensation package are supply and demand, labor unions and the company’s ability to pay and its productivity and government regulations according to (Montana & Charnov, 2000, p 222). Supply and Demand dictates the availability of qualified people within the area to do the job. If the economy is doing well then their will be great competition in attracting qualified candidates to do the job, this means management would have to pay a higher dollar amount to qualified candidates. If the market is slow then there will be a surplus of qualified and......

...violence center in the city where I live. Of course it has many programs that are available for members of the community. When looking at the benefit types and services that are offered by the Sojourner Family Peace Center I am going to say some of the services help certain target populations and there are some that are off target. One example is the 46-bed emergency shelter is one that I see fits because the funds that are given to the shelter goes straight to the shelter and the funds are used for the client that come in for help. The program that is off target is that of the Batterers Intervention Service that they offer. Yes, the people that are doing the abuse do need the help, but what is the use if it is being order by the courts. If it is being ordered by the courts then the person is just going to get the courts off of their back and then if they are not back with that same person then they are with someone else that they are trying to hurt because of their problem. With that being said I feel that this program is not fit to give the results that it is intended, which is to help family become whole again. This gives the abuser the freedom to be violent again, but won’t because the courts are involved in it. Now for those that administrative complexity, it’s only natural to expect that public administrators will value a benefit form that is simple rather than complicated to administer. (Chambers & Wedel, p. 99, 2005). The main purpose of the Sojourner Family Peace......

...Employee Benefits Employee benefits is very important benefit that every employee should be looking at when it comes time to search for a job. Many companies offer a lot of employee benefits, however; there are some that are more important than others. When the organization is developing and planning their benefit package, there is information that is very important for the planning process and then there is other information that is not as important when it comes to the planning process. The most important information when it comes to planning process for employee benefits would be compensation(2014). You have to have a good compensation package for your employees based on their experience, education, and knowledge. When employees are searching for jobs, one of the first things they want to know is how much they will be making per an hour or if it is salary, the employee will want to know how much their salary is going to be. So that would be one of the most important things to consider when planning for the process of employee benefits. The second most important thing when a company is planning for employee benefits would be medical insurance. Most companies offer health insurance, dental insurance, vision insurance, and prescription coverage. Now a days, every person has to have health insurance due to the Obama care so that is why the medical insurance is one of the most important things to plan when planning the employee’s benefits process. Medical insurance......

...the former employee of Phillip Morris held positions such as QA Technician and Special Testing Technician. Her duties would entail sanitation audits, contamination control and special testing and quality engineering of new products. Her position and her duties were extremely essential to the day-to-day operations of how the plant would function as it related to the product manufactured and the safety thereof, therefore; like most employees benefits were of great importance to Wendy Wimbush. She spoke very highly of employee benefits, salary and insurance offered. Additionally, according to Phillip Morris International they believe in their employees being the greatest strength to their success as a company (Phillip Morris International, 2015, para 7). Glassdoor, an internet review site for various employers also had other employees of Phillip Morris to speak on the pros of working for Phillip Morris. Current and former employees on the site had an excellent employee morale concerning Phillip Morris. Many spoke of excellent benefits packages, rewarded for hard work, career advancement and open communication and relationship with upper management. Majority of the employees were either interns or former employees and most remained anonymous. Weaknesses As with any company, though you have your pros, the cons of a company are almost a guarantee because nothing is absolutely perfected.

Introduction This essay examines the major cost and benefits of the main types of agencies, that organisations use in recruitment. In first part I will explain background of the market. Then I will move on to explain each of the types of agency used in recruitment. After that I will carefully examine their major costs and benefits and as a conclusion I will explain where I see a future of the recruitment market, supported by my arguments for the strongest type of market. II. Background One of the ways how the company can attract potential employee is to advertise job vacancies through the employment agencies. Recruitment market in the UK changed a lot over the last decade as it was influenced by factors such as: immigration, ageing of population, evolution of internet, slow growth of economy in the UK, war in Iraq, changes in working patterns and many regulations supporting disadvantaged groups of working age people. The recruitment market is from government side regulated by The Department of Work and Pension. The government is committed to take care of the welfare of its people. Department of Work and Pension helps to tackle contemporary issues with introducing New Deal, creation of Jobcentre Plus and introducing National Minimum Wage. Proposal of the new Welfare Reform Bill is debated in the House of Commons and hopefully will come into......

...started operations offering a good package of benefits to attract good talent. The benefits exceeded those of similar or larger companies.The original package offered Complete Medical, 3 week vacation plus all official Holidays paid, plus other non official Holidays, besides the company included five sick days that could be used or paid at the end of the year. Also the company offered a generous bonus at the end of the year (Martinez, 2010). The Medical covered 100% of the premiums for the employee , and his/her spouse and 50% on children- all with $500.00 deductible plan, and the company would cover the $500.00 deductible ( Martinez, 2010). When the cost of medical insurance exploded, Food Process and Control held on the same benefits until a couple of years later that was not affordable, so they needed to re- structure the benefit plan, especially because at this time they were looking at more employees and that was really affecting the cost in to the company (Martinez, 2010). To cut costs Food Process and Control reduced the coverage of spouse and children to only 50%, a couple of years later Food Process and Control was forced to eliminate our portion of the $500.00 deductible and change the plan to a $1000.00 deductible to reduce the escalating costs. As for dental insurance Food Process and Control has never offered dental insurance to its employees. Now its time for a re-structure the medial and dental benefits at FPC’s and that is why I am choosing......

Type themselves. In less balanced individuals, such mitigation of the unseemly eventually undermines the ENFJ's integrity and frequently their good name. In healthier individuals, deft use of this awareness of the inner needs and desires of others enables this astute type to win friends, influence people, and avoid compromising entanglements. The dynamic nature of their intuition moves ENFJs from one project to another with the assurance that the next one will be perfect, or much more nearly so than the last. ENFJs are continually looking for newer and better solutions to benefit their extensive family, staff, or organization. Extraverted Sensing Sensing is extraverted. ENFJs can manage details, particularly those necessary to implement the prevailing vision. These data have, however, a magical flexible quality. Something to be bought can be had for a song; the same something is invaluable when it's time to sell. (We are not certain, but we suspect that such is the influence of the primary function.) This wavering of sensory perception is made possible by the weaker and less mature status with which the tertiary is endowed. Introverted Thinking Introverted Thinking is least apparent and most enigmatic in this type. In fact, it often appears only when summoned by Feeling. At times only in jest, but in earnest if need be, Thinking entertains as logical only those conclusions which support Feeling's values. Other scenarios can be shown invalid or at best significantly......

Bonds: Types, Risks, and Benefits

...BONDS: TYPES, RISKS, AND BENEFITS When a corporation wants to borrow money from the public on a long-term basis, it does so by selling securities that are called bonds. There are different types of bonds available, each with different risks and rewards. The different factors associated with each type of bond, determines how it fits into your portfolio. A bond is an interest-only loan, where the borrower will pay the interest every period, and then repay the principal amount at the end of the loan. The value of bonds fluctuates. When the interest rate increases, the bond becomes worth less. When interest rates fall, the bond becomes worth more. A bonds value at a particular point in time, known as its yield to maturity, can be calculated by using information such as: the number of periods to maturity, the face value, the coupon or stated interest payment made on a bond, and the market interest rate for bonds with similar features. With this information we can calculate the bonds yield to maturity (YTM) or “Yield” for short. The US government is the biggest borrower in the world. In early 2009, the total debt of the US Government was approaching $11 Trillion Dollars. When the government wants to borrow money for more than one year, it sells Treasury Notes/Bonds to the public. Most US treasury bonds are just ordinary coupon bonds. Some older issues are callable meaning the government can repurchase the bond at specific price prior to maturity. Treasury issues......
