Assignment: Capella University Engaging a Global Workforce Presentation
This assessment is based on the following scenario:
You are the section leader of a seven-member training and development team within the larger human resources department of a multinational corporation headquartered in Washington DC. All the HR professionals are Americans who grew up in the U.S. Three of your peers have extensive global experience; the other four have not worked outside the U.S., nor have they ever been part of a global HR team. The multinational corporation you work for is an engineering firm with projects around the globe and employees over 34,000 employees from 50 nations.
Understanding how to blend global talent into teams to support an organization’s training goals—while being mindful of cultural dimensions, values, communication, and expectations—helps HR practitioners take on this challenging task. Seeking to understand biases and behaviors in our communications is critical to our cultural awareness, whether we are based domestically or abroad. Exploring national culture as it relates to team building in the workplace can enhance our ability to engage employees. Inclusivity builds solid employee relations and engagement with people from all cultures while supporting human resource practices.
Create a PowerPoint presentation of 7–10 slides, using detailed speaker notes, to provide training to your HR team on engaging a global workforce culture to maximize performance. Include the following:
Analyze differences in work styles between a U.S. worker and that of another country.
Demonstrate that these differences are cultural and not performance-based by selecting a country of your choice for this comparison.
Describe best practices for a virtual human resource team of a global workforce.
How does cultural differences influence employee management with such things as self-service tools or HR systems?
Consider practices concerning the workforce coordination with senior leaders (executives) and the communication of labor laws with HR peers.
Analyze the impact of cross-cultural communications on employee management.
How does personal bias or knowledge of other’s cultural backgrounds, active listening, and forms of non-verbal communication impact cross-cultural interactions and communications?
Provide one or two workplace examples that maximize the performance and effectiveness of a HR team.
Length: 7–10 PowerPoint slides, including title and reference slides.
Select a PowerPoint slide template appropriate for a professional presentation.
Include the content of the slides as well as the supporting narrative in the speaker’s notes.
Be sure slide content supports your main points and ideas.
Do not overbuild your slides; information that supports what you are saying should appear at the lower portion of each slide as notes.
Note: Save your finished PowerPoint presentation in Notes view as a PDF. Instead of File > Save As, use File > Print > Adobe PDF. Look for the Settings dropdown menu to change it from slides to Notes Pages. Be sure you can see both the slides and your notes in the preview of your saved file. Upload only the PDF to this assessment.
Written communication: Communicate in a manner that is scholarly and professional. Your writing should be:
Concise and logically organized.
Free of errors in grammar and mechanics.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
The educational preparation of a clinical nurse leader (CNL) is extensive. A minimum of a master’s degree is needed with a major in nursing. Those who graduate and meet the criteria become eligible for the CNL certification examination (American Association of Colleges of Nursing, 2018). The clinical nurse leader’s certification examination is mandatory because of the extensive knowledge, clinical skills, and competence in patient care to be a valuable resource to the health care team.
The role of the CNL is to collaborate with an interdisciplinary team in the health care environment. They are engaged in improving quality strategies and outcomes related to evidence-based practice. They provide leadership beyond acute care and in all settings. The professionals can assess risks, collect, evaluate a patient’s outcomes, and use their knowledge to make changes to the care plan if needed (Best Master of Science in Nursing Degrees, 2019). Moreover, they can perform patient care in complex cases. The goal of the clinical nurse leader is to ensure the patient receives the most current evidence-based practices and works for the best possible outcome.
The CNL influences direct patient care in various settings because their role was made to improve the quality of care and patient safety (Regis College, 2019). For example, a CNL who works on a pediatric wing notices differences in birth weight outcomes. The CNL can collect data on a specific group or minority and see if this is related to the outcome. The CNL then uses their knowledge, research, and literature directly with this issue. They then can develop or change the plan of care to reach an optimal patient outcome.
For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.

Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:
Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.
