Week 5 – Assignment: Recommend an Employee-Friendly Policy
This week, you learned all about employee-friendly policies. Now, it is time to practice your public speaking skills in delivering the message that Organization X is implementing a new employee friendly policy/program.
First, select one of the programs discussed in the readings and conduct an online search for additional information on the subject. Then, reflect on your findings and how the implementation of the program you chose might relate to a more stable work/life balance or just a healthier work environment in general. Then, citing a combination of the readings and your outside research, give a speech to employees of Organization X outlining the new program/policy and how it will impact them moving forward.
Length: 4-6 pages, not including title and reference pages
For grading purposes, you will submit a transcript of the speech you would present, along with any visual aids (chart, graphs) that you would use to enhance the presentation. Also, you may present a recording of your speech using CaptureSpace so that your professor can give you ungraded feedback on your lecture style. This audio submission is optional.
If you choose to record your lecture, upload it to your professor using CaptureSpace. An average speech tends to be 100 to 150 words per minute.
References: Support your speech with at least five references, three of which must be scholarly and published within the last five (5) years. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate professional or scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.
Your speech should be scholarly, yet engaging. In making your speech engaging, you may depart from usual writing form an organization and choose to use anecdotes, humor, or other speaking tools; be sure, however, to cite your sources appropriately in the print version of the speech that you submit.
Your assignment should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards where appropriate. Be sure to adhere to Northcentral University’s Academic Integrity Policy.
