Course Project Scenario

Savannah Engineering, Inspection and Insurance Company

 Savannah Engineering, Inspection and Insurance Company (SEIIC) is one of America’s oldest insurance companies specializing in equipment inspection and insurance for companies in the manufacturing, transportation, and energy sectors. Founded in 1873 and named for the first steam-powered ship to cross the Atlantic, SEIIC has grown to become a global leader in the application of engineering principles to safety and risk management. With more than 4,500 employees in 14 principal offices and 55 field locations around the world, SEIIC stands ready to meet industry needs on any continent.

 More than 50% of the SEIIC employees have an engineering or technical background. Accordingly, college recruiting and training are major features of the HR program. Although SEIIC has been known as a great place to work, 

turnover/retention issues need constant attention in the highly competitive labor market for technical personnel. In the past, the organization was also known for outstanding customer service and for building long-term relationships with its many business partners. However, this image has slipped in recent years as the organization and market have undergone significant change and SEIIC has struggled to respond in effective ways. As a result, SEIIC has decided to undertake a complete updating of its human resources management practices.

 To accomplish this effort, the company wants to investigate emerging trends in HR and to identify best practices for major HR processes.

 To accomplish this investigation, the organization has divided the project into five components as follows:

  • Week 1: Exploration of the domestic organizational environment including economic, legal, cultural, global, and technological trends of the domestic organizational environment including economic, legal, cultural, global, and technological trends of the domestic organizational environment including economic, legal, cultural, global, and technological trends.

For this paper, assess at least two major trends that are likely to affect SEIIC for each of the following areas:

  • -Economic and financial
  • -Legal and political
  • -Social and cultural
  • -Global and technological

The purpose of this assignment is to provide you with an opportunity to learn more about how connected you are to the ecosystems and biosphere that you inhabit. You will learn how your everyday choices impact our environment. Most importantly, you will learn about the benefits of joining the increasing number of people who are making choices that reduce their environmental impact.

First, calculate your ecological footprint (If you are having difficulty getting any of the proper information from the calculator, you may need to try a different web browser.  For instance, if you are using Google Chrome, you may need to use Internet Explorer, Safari, Mozilla, etc.  If you are using one of these and are experiencing difficulties, you may need to try Google Chrome, etc.).

  • Use the Footprint Calculator to measure your ecological footprint and learn “how many Earths” it takes to support your lifestyle. Be sure to choose the “detailed response” option for each question.
  • Answer each question in the quiz honestly and record your answers and results in the Environmental Footprint Reporting form.

Second, calculate your household carbon emissions.

  • Use the Household Carbon Footprint Calculator to measure your carbon emissions and determine your environmental impact and the benefits of solutions.
    • Section 1: Estimate your current total household emissions (from home energy use, vehicle use, waste).
    • Section 2: Explore actions you can take to reduce your greenhouse gas emissions, energy use, and waste disposal costs.
    • Section 3: See how much you can save (in dollars and emissions) by taking the actions you chose in Section 2.
  • Answer each question in the quiz honestly and record your answers and results in the Environmental Footprint Reporting Form. Complete Tables A and B as well as assignment questions 1 through 4 in complete sentences on the Environmental Footprint Reporting Form.
