Week 4 Discussion 1
This week we will discuss the importance of proper design and redesign of work systems. Job duties and characteristics are considered when jobs are designed. Environmental and organizational change can serve as a catalyst to redesigning work systems. Organizational change can be difficult, and may be resisted by some, but must be managed effectively to facilitate organizational performance. Outsourcing of some HR functions can make sense for organizations and can bring a higher profile to HR managers as they assume less operational and more strategic duties. Certain critical HR functions should remain internal to the organization.
