“Week 3 Discussion:
Criteria” Please respond to the following:
 

  • Criteria are a critical part of the justification report assignment. This is an excellent forum to enlist the assistance of your classmates if you are having difficulty deciding what criteria to choose for Assignment 2.1.
    • For this thread, you should:
      • Define the term criteria and examine two (2) ways they function in helping someone make an important decision. Note: You can use an example from your own life to help clearly explain your point.
      • Discuss your potential topic for the justification report (a workplace problem – see Assignment 2.1 details) then determine which criteria you intend to use to help make your decision. Be sure to cite two (2) reasons why you chose those criteria
    • Respond to this student for this discussion:
    • Criterion or criteria is the principle or standard by which something may be judged or decided. One example of criteria is SAT scores, and how they are a key tool in deciding whether or not a student gets into a particular college or not. Also, and probably the most important is finance criteria. If the defined word criteria is the principal or standard by which something may be judged or decided, how often is criteria used when making large financial decisions. A mayor of a major city would need to examine criteria before presenting a proposal for a new school, to fix roads, or structures around town. Criteria can also be used in the process of qualifying for something. A friend of mine is a police officer, he had to take a physical, as well as several mental tests. If I was interested in becoming a police officer, I may ask my friend “do I fit the criteria” or “what is the criteria to apply” meaning what do I need before applying, or being accepted into the academy.I’m struggling with the topic of my justification report, as I usually do trying to find something that doesn’t exist I guess I don’t have the imagination I did when I was a kid. The topic I’m thinking about exploring is employee break room costs. For instance, the CEO of the company has put me in charge of managing the vending machines, coffee machines, the packets or cups for the coffee machine. Pretty much all that a coffee station/break room would entail, the paper products, as well as the appliances. My job is to find out how to save the company money in that department, along with making sure everything is in working condition. My job will extend outside of the break room a little bit as well, because there are water coolers, and other stations that need to be managed as well. I will do research weekly to find out what items, or things we could do as a company to save money while keeping employee moral high. I chose this this criteria, honestly, because it was all I could think of at the time. I feel like I would be better at this if I was actively working, because I would have a better idea of what goes on, or I could do the assignment based on what I do everyday. I haven’t worked in almost 4 years due to injury so this is all I came up with. Another reason I chose this is because it seemed like easily accessible information, prices of items, what it costs the company in bulk, and how we can save money by switching delivery services.
      Discussion Wk 4:
      “Preparing Reports and Proposals – Research” Please respond to the following:
       

      • Locate a secondary source on EBSCOHost published in the past year that will help you explore the problem you have raised in your Justification Report. (Use the “Cite” tool on the EBSCOHost Website to copy and paste the APA Reference information into your response so that your classmates and instructor can see the source.) Next, explain why you chose this source, and determine how it will help you to evaluate your alternatives (i.e. possible solutions offered) and arrive at a recommendation for your employer.

      My justification report is on the benefits of having an extended lunch break. My current job allows their employees to have a 30 minute lunch break, but my argument is to extend this break between 45 minutes to an hour.
      “When recovery is insufficient, an individual has to invest additional effort at work, which may cause strain and lead to accumulating strain reactions in the long term. Recovery therefore plays a significant role in counteracting strain caused by job demands and helps in maintaining well-being and energy at work.” (S. Marjaana)
