The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) specifies the ethics and values of the profession in their Code of Ethics. Section 6.04 of the Code of Ethics (1999) states:

Social workers should engage in social and political action that seeks to ensure that all people have equal access to the resources, employment, services, and opportunities they require to meet their basic human needs and to develop fully. Social workers should be aware of the impact of the political arena on practice and should advocate for changes in policy and legislation to improve social conditions in order to meet basic human needs and promote social justice.(Preamble, p. 8)

With the requirement of social and political action among social workers, there is little political activity among clinical social workers. Why? What barriers exist that prevent social workers from fulfilling this ethical obligation?

What does it mean to be a macro social worker? A micro social worker? Do these differentiations have any real meaning? If not, why is this language used when referring to the social work profession?

In this Discussion, you will look at the obligation of social workers to engage in political action in their practice and discuss why there appear to be different perceptions of the responsibility for political action among social work professionals.

Post (no more than 1 page) an analysis of historical divides (such as the schism between Jane Addams and Mary Richmond) and historical influences on current social work practice with respect to policy advocacy and action. Do such schisms exist in contemporary social work? If you think these divides exist, how do they prevent social workers from fulfilling their ethical obligation(s)? Are they important differentiations?

Employers have been coming up with innovative employee rewards to boost morale and acknowledge employee needs for creativity and personal goal accomplishment. Some of the latest potential employee rewards include using the Internet at work for personal reasons such as shopping, communicating with friends, or personal finances; bringing a pet to work; instituting a controlled napping policy, and the sports and office betting pools.  

Write an eight to ten (8-10) page paper in which you: 

1. Determine how innovations in employee benefits can improve the overall competitive compensation strategy of the organization. In other words, if your benefits programs have been improved, how will that improve the company’s compensation strategy?

2. Explain how innovative benefits could be tied to specific jobs. More specifically, how do the benefits programs help attract talent for specific jobs? HINT: View information at https://www.workforce.com/2016/09/14/tie-comp-performance-management-attract-keep-employees/ and information in the textbook.

3. Critique (or assess) the effectiveness of equity-based rewards systems for both compensation and benefits. Why do you believe companies use equity to reward employees and is that approach effective?

4. Discuss the key elements of integrating innovation into a traditional total rewards program. In other words, in your current total rewards program what elements might you use to integrate innovation solutions to it?

5. Recommend a process that optimizes an employee-based suggestion program to continually refresh the total rewards of the organization.

6. Use at least five (5) quality academic resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and other Websites do not quality as academic resources.

Be sure to review the grading rubric before starting this assignment. The contents of the paper should be tailored to fulfilling the requirements set out in the grading rubric. Watch video and read excerpt below: Video Link: https://www.wftv.com/news/local/florida-man-wanted-for-carjacking-arrested-after-stealingfhp-cruiser-on-turnpike-troopers-say/945970926 OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. – A man wanted in connection with a carjacking in Clearwater was arrested Thursday in Osceola County after troopers say he stole a Florida Highway Patrol car and led law enforcement on an 11-mile pursuit. Clearwater police identified 22-year-old Shane Jensen, of Largo, as the suspect in a carjacking in a Home Depot parking lot Wednesday morning. Police said he threatened a teenager out of a truck with a stolen hammer and then drove off. More than 24 hours later, troopers spotted a “medically distressed” pedestrian along the Florida Turnpike in Okeechobee County. A trooper said he stopped to help the man, later identified as Jensen. When the trooper walked away to get some water for Jensen from a road ranger, troopers said Jensen got into the trooper’s patrol car and drove off. As Jensen drove northbound, Osceola County sheriff’s deputies deployed stop sticks, which troopers said Jensen avoided before coming to a stop in the median. Troopers said they arrested Jensen after he fled into the woods. Jensen is facing charges of stealing a patrol car and reckless driving – in addition to any pending charges out of Clearwater.

Questions, Feedback, & Relevant Resources to Help Complete Week 4 Tasks

For the Week 4 Discussion Question (DQ) 2, the intent for this Discussion Topic is to expand on the DQ1 for which you were asked to demonstrate your understanding and rationale by explaining why “trust” represents an essential ingredient or component in building relationships between organizations. As a way of demonstrating your understanding and rationale, you were also asked to explicitly give positive and negative examples as to why you believe or think that “trust” represents an important ingredient or component in building relationships between organizations. 

Therefore, for the Week 4 Discussion Question (DQ) 2, you are asked to “Rank” your recommendations for building trusting relationships between stakeholders and to also explain your ranking. Please Note: The recommendations that you are asked to “Rank” are the positive and negative examples you provided for the DQ1 posting regarding why you believe or think that “trust” represents an important ingredient or component in building trusting relationships between stakeholders and to also explain your ranking. 

As I had previously stated, by building collaborative relationships between organizations or stakeholders can develop competence and confidence in people because in making people have a sense of options, latitude, and accountability, can fuel people’s sense of trust, power, and control over their lives. Yet as necessary as enhancing self-determination is, it is insufficient without the knowledge, skills, information, and resources to foster collaborative relationships that can contribute to “Building Trust and Working with Stakeholders.” Fostering collaborative relationships might also require investing in some training components and developmental experiences that can increase people’s competencies and build their confidence. Without some educational mechanism and coaching tools for building collaborative relationships, people are reluctant to exercise their knowledge, in part because they do not know how to perform the critical tasks and in part out of fear of being punished for making mistakes (Kouzes & Posner, 2017). 

Again, by way of finding answers to some unanswered questions as to why “trust” represents an important ingredient or component in building relationships between organizations, perhaps reflection on some of the following Socratic ponderings and viewpoints that resonates with T. K. Gamble and M. Gamble (2013) assertion might help shed more insights: 

Understanding the power of “Trust” in building relationships between organizations or Stakeholders:

  1. Can a leader’s nonverbal behavior detract the power of trust in fostering a credible collaborative relationship between organizations?
  2. What does it take to convey trust in fostering a credible collaborative relationship between organizations?
  3. What does it take for the demeanor and behavior of trust you exhibit to measure up to the scrutiny of followers and stakeholders?
  4. How can leaders use nonverbal communication to achieve communication goals in fostering a credible collaborative relationship between organizations?
  5. Do you feel that more attention is paid to the nonverbal cues of a female leader as opposed to the nonverbal cues of a male when it comes to fostering a credible collaborative relationship between organizations?
  6. What happens when words and nonverbal cues conflict in fostering a credible collaborative relationship between organizations?
  7. Do you know any leaders whose verbal and nonverbal cues do conflict indeed in fostering a credible collaborative relationship between organizations, and why?
  8. What do you think about “Building Trust and Working with Stakeholders” that require shared values?
  9. Can we all exercise leadership, or is it reserved only for those special persons at an organization’s top?
  10. Is there a leader in you?
  11. Will you look ahead when everyone wants to look back?
  12. Do you dream of tomorrow when others want it now?
