Your scavenger hunt will consist of finding an example of where an organization and management excelled in taking care of and motivating employees, and then provide an example or experience where an organization failed in this area. Remember these examples can come from any organization. If you do find applicable information on your own organization while working on this discussion, use it where applicable in your own SWOT analysis. These examples can be from current events, historical instances, or classic examples, in video or print.
Conduct a web search seeking two examples of where you believe an organization’s human resource department has performed exceptionally well or failed terribly in motivating employees and creating an environment where employees want to be loyal and stay with the organization.
Discuss what you found during your web search.
Provide a description of how effective motivational techniques can and do affect all managers and organizations.
In response to your colleagues:
Discuss any personal experiences you have had with human resources (both good and bad) and discuss some of the ways you’ve been motivated in the workplace.
Discuss any similarities or differences with your own perceptions.
Thousands of indigenous children were removed from their homes and sent to residential schools across Canada. Residential schools were used as a means to eliminate all aspects of Indigenous culture. By enforcing mandatory enrollment into government funded facilities run by the church, the government hoped to assimilate the indigenous people. Learning to communicate in English adopting Christianity and developing agricultural, home making and trade skills were some of the requirements of the children that attended residential schools. The Canadian government believed that by adopting a new more “civil” way of life through the dismissal of Indigenous traditions, culture and language was the only way the indigenous population would thrive. The Lejac or Fraser Lake Residential School named after Father Jean Marie Lejac was located on Fraser Lake in northern British Columbia and opened in 1890. As the number of children forcibly removed from their homes increased a larger facility was required. In 1922 a new building was erected that would accommodate the influx of students. Many of the children that attended the institution were from surrounding communities such as the Gitxsan, Wet’suwet’en and Sekani. From 1922 to 1976 when the institution closed Lejac residential school was operated by the missionaries from the Order of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate of the Roman Catholic Church .The Dakelhs spiritual beliefs that were centered on Utakke (high God or sky spirit) and many spirits in nature were abandoned and Christianity was adopted.
