... 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.

...Running head: Evolution of Management Principles The Evolution of Management Principles Tim Akers American Public University 20 April 2013 ABSTRACT In this paper I will be explaining the evolution of management from the beginning of the industrial revolution to present which includes Classical School of Management, the Human Relations/ Behavioral School of Management, Theory X and Y, the Scientific Approach, Contingency Approach, and Theory Z. I will also be comparing the classical style and the present style to each other and to my current work environment. The Evolution of Management Principles The Classical school of thought began during the Industrial Revolution around 1900 and continued into the 1920s when new problems related to the factory system began to appear. Managers were unsure of how to train employees (many of them non-English speaking immigrants) or deal with increased labor dissatisfaction, so they began to test solutions. Traditional or classical management focuses on efficiency and includes scientific, bureaucratic and administrative management. Bureaucratic management needs a rational set of structuring guidelines, such as rules and procedures, hierarchy, and a clear division of labor. Scientific management focuses on the "one best way" to do the job. Administrative management emphasizes the flow of information in the operation of the organization. The first management theory approach to emerge was...

...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......

The Law Is the Last Result of Human Wisdom Acting Upon Human Experience for the Benefit of the Public

...Samuel Johnson: The law is the last result of human wisdom acting upon human experience for the benefit of the public Dynamic intelligence, speculative minds, misery of pain and shared anguish prompted the search of humans for law and justice. Law has been defined in different ways by various religious leaders and prolific philosophers. Law is an interpretative social practice that contains implicit moral principles and values. Law is related to justice, reason, human nature and ethics. The objective of law is stability, peace and tranquility of sentient beings. Protection of wrong encourages breaking of law. One who breaks the law cannot get protection. Laws can be made and unmade. Law must be just and fair. It is known as substantive due process doctrine. Samuel Johnson wrote that “The law is the last result of human wisdom acting upon human experience for the benefit of the public.” Next only to William Shakespeare, Samuel Johnson is perhaps the most quoted of English writers. The latter part of the eighteenth century is often (in English-speaking countries, of course) called, simply, the Age of Johnson. Samuel Johnson (18 September 1709 [O.S. 7 September] – 13 December 1784), often referred to as Dr Johnson, was an English writer who made lasting contributions to English literature as a poet, essayist, moralist, literary critic, biographer, editor and lexicographer. Johnson was a devout Anglican and committed Tory, and has been described as “arguably the most......

...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 Compensation and Benefit Challenges of Detroit Public School District

...Abstract Every child deserves to have a quality education to ensure sustainability in the future. However, Detroit Public School District is one school district that has shown a disservice to teachers and ultimately to its students. As public employees, the Detroit school teachers advocate for their jobs, respect, and cost-effective training opportunities. This paper examines the financial and benefit challenges of Detroit Public School District and the salary components of Detroit Public School Teachers. According to analyst and state education officials, the financial challenge with Detroit Public School District is tied to “declines in state aid, falling enrollment, caps on cash-flow borrowing, and the districts' unwillingness to make deep cuts, (Devitt, 2013). Additionally, the employee benefit challenges of Detroit School Teachers is that teachers were denied retirement benefits and given low salaries compared to teachers in other districts. Information has been obtained from Devry University Library articles, journals, educational websites, and a documentary. Strategies detailed in this paper emphasize theories to improve the educational system and compensation of Detroit School Teachers. Also, the present paper gives an example of another public school district with turnaround success. Recommendations are focused on the need for community and state support of Detroit school teachers, so that the teachers are not poorly compensated and undervalued. In addition, the......

...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......

Benefits of Uniforms in Public Schools

...Benefits of Uniforms within the Public School System AED/200 March 6, 2011 Benefits of Uniforms within the Public School System For generation after generation children, parents, and people of authority have had differing opinions regarding what is appropriate for students’ fashion and appearance. The last 60 years have seen numerous transformations in the way students dress within the public school system. In the 1950s students dressed modestly and wore what would today be considered Sunday best clothes. Today’s students go to school with cleavage, midriffs, and undergarments exposed and wear clothes that have been intentionally cut-up or torn for the purpose of fashion. In the last two decades the discussion on student dress has been focused on creating a safe and professional atmosphere for students to learn in. School uniforms and dress codes are competent ways to improve discipline and motivation amongst students in school and do not limit the way students express their individuality. History of School Uniforms School uniforms have a long history not only in the United States, but elsewhere around the world. One of the first countries to originate the use of school uniforms was England. In the year 1222 the archbishop of Canterbury mandated that all English scholars dress in robes that resembled those of a monk. It is from this initial uniform that today’s high school and university graduates model graduation robes after. Soon after the......

...| 9/11/01 and Public Health | HSA4011GI-201032011 Public Health Management - Kevon Pierre | | Denise Solis | 1/22/2011 | | 1 On September 11, 2001 I was heading out with my nephew Alex to family court and my husband Tony could not be with me that day. He was working with Marc Green on the campaign for Mayor of NYC and on that day it happened to be the day to vote to determine who would run for mayor. While driving to the court house, I received a disturbing call from him saying that there had been a plane crash at the twin towers and he was told to get back in his uniform and get to the site. Tony worked for FDNY as a paramedic and on that day all of the public health employees for NYC were called in for an emergency. This specific occurrence has had a great impact in our society and on public health. Security was breached due to the lack of an intense airport security. Since then our government has worked on how this can be prevented from happening to the USA again. The first order of business after the attacks involved a few plans to solve the problems at hand then later and determine how to make them long-term changes. “The Air Transportation Safety and System Stabilization Act (2001), was allotted five billion in grants and ten billion in credit for airlines as form of compensation for 9-11. The reason behind this was to aid airports all across America in returning to their “usual business” since all airports were re-opening after a period of...
